dosha-dog-croppedDosha, a 10-month-old pit bull mix living with her master in Clearlake, California, had a really bad day on April 15, 2003. That morning, she jumped a fence to escape her yard and was subsequently hit by a pickup truck. Dosha was glassy-eyed and limp when the police arrived. Thinking that the dog was fatally wounded, the cop shot Dosha in the head, just below her right eye, to put her out of her misery.

Keith-Sapsford-smallJohn Gilpin, an amateur photographer, was testing his new camera lens at the airport and caught a 14 year old boy falling from the wheel well of Japan Air Lines DC-8. This is a case of a stowaway trying to fly around the world for free for a vacation. There were over 96 documented incidents since 1946 and only 24% have survived. Most die immediately after the landing gear goes up and crushes them or freeze to death or die of no oxygen. A kid recently survived somehow but was unconscious the entire time. They found him wandering the tarmac after the plane landed.
