    Kid Lands 114-Pound Louisiana State Record Catfish-2

    by

    Twelve-year-old angler Lawson Boyte landed a spot in the record books when he pulled a fish from the Mississippi River that was larger than him. The Oak Grove, La., resident admits that catching the 114-pound catfish took more than just skill. 

    "It was more luck than it was skill to catch that big fish. I think the thing that done it was eating Vienna sausages,” he told KNOE 8 News.
     
    Boyte’s fish was so large that it wouldn’t fit in a regular-sized freezer. Instead, it was held in a freezer at the concession stand at Oak Grove High School.

    Video: Leopard vs. Impala vs. Gravity-0

    by

    We've seen leopards prowl through hospitals, kill pythons, and take down crocodiles. But until this video, we've never seen one fall out of a tree. The folks from Latestsightings.com posted the footage to LiveLeak yesterday saying it was "Taken on the H1-3 near Tshokwane in the Kruger National Park in South Africa."

    Possible Mountain Lion Sighting in Boston Suburb-1

    by

    An unidentified resident of the Boston suburb of Winchester says he saw a mountain lion in the Dunster Lane, Pepper Hill Drive neighborhood on Tuesday. Massachusetts Environmental Police responded to the claim and found paw prints that resemble those of a mountain lion at the scene. While many see this as proof of the sighting, the incident remains open to investigation.

    Mountain lions have not been officially documented in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts since 1858. There have been numerous sightings since then but none have been confirmed.

    Is It A Wolf, Coyote, or Coydog?-15

    by

    A friend in New Hampshire, Mike Romano, emailed us this morning with a fascinating story and two intriguing photos. Here’s his tale:

    “So Friday morning we woke up to several of our horse fences broken down and couldn't figure out what really happened to them until I saw the attached Saturday afternoon. I had 9 deer in my driveway on and off most of the day Saturday, but in the afternoon I saw they were on high alert, so I looked out my side window and saw this.”

    Update: Potential World-Record Trout Caught Illegally-1

    by

    An ice-fisherman is in hot water after lying about where he caught his potential record-breaking trout.

    Rob Scott of Crane Lake, Minn. landed a 52-pound, 3-ounce monster after an hour-long fight that took place above and below the ice of Lac la Croix on Feb. 8. Following the epic battle, Scott, 65, took the behemoth to a taxidermist in Duluth to be weighed, measured and stuffed.

    News of the monster fish got out and Scott’s story made headlines in the Star Tribune. This caught the attention of Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources in Aitkokan, Ontario who recalled checking Scott’s fishing license on the Canadian side of Lac la Croix on the day of his catch. When the officers checked on Scott he had just caught a 4-pound trout. Officers investigated the matter and, when confronted, Scott admitted that he caught his potential record breaker fish after the officers had left him. He stated that he was so high on adrenaline that he wasn’t thinking straight when he gave the smaller fish to another angler and hauled his prize catch about a hundred feet back across the border and into the U.S. via snowmobile.

    Girl Shoots Mountain Lion that Stalked Her Brother-1

    by

    During the course of a single week, three cougars were killed at a family ranch in northern Washington this month. The latest big cat was killed by 11-year-old Shelby White, who shot an emaciated lion that had been stalking her older brother near their home in Twisp, Wash.

    Thomas White awoke at 2:30 a.m. to the barking of the family dog on Feb. 20, reports the Methow Valley News. White walked outside and discovered a cougar trying to enter an enclosure of cows and calves. Although he scared away the cougar without incident, the lion returned two hours later and White drove it off a second time.

    Video: Leopard Prowls Through Hospital in India-0

    by

    Rising medical costs, long waits in the emergency room, Obamacare glitches...

    Ha! Those medical care problems might sound bad, but they're not nearly as bad as a leopard.

    Authorities closed schools in Meerut, India Sunday after a leopard was spotted (Oh, that’s a bad pun) wandering city streets. The animal roamed through a hospital – where it mauled a photographer sent to cover the scene – a market, apartment complex, and a cinema as authorities tried to catch the big cat.

    Fly Angler Releases Potential World-Record Blacktip Shark-1

    by

    Would you give up a potential world-record fish on a matter of principal? Michael Roth did it without hesitation and I admire him for doing so.

    Roth landed a huge blacktip shark during a fishing trip to the Turks and Caicos this past January. Many believe the shark would have weighed more than 120 pounds. But as weighing the animal — which is required by International Game Fishing Association in order to qualify for a world record — would have meant the death of the beast, Roth released the fish unharmed.

    Video: Biker Tumbles Down Mountain After Grizzly Bear Charge-1

    by

    Canadian Brad Paras and his cousin Dan England were mountain biking in Jasper National Park last week when Paras spotted a grizzly and her cub roughly 35 feet from him.

    Paras spewed an "Oh, s--t!" before making a hasty getaway. (More appropriate words have never been muttered.) Unfortunately, his “getaway” took him off the trail by a drop of about 50 feet in elevation that dead-ended into a tree.

    While Paras was dealing with the crash, England got off his bike and got his pepper spray ready. The mother grizz charged England but stopped just shy of the spray’s effective range of 10 meters before heading back into the woods. Paras climbed back up the mountain with the bike in tow to find his cousin watching the bear disappear into the forest.
