The Nebraska Humane Society said the dog, named Ivy, escaped from her home in Sioux City on Feb. 12 and traveled 100 miles to the Omaha area during her 23 days on the loose.


The humane society said multiple reported sightings of Ivy occurred during that time, but the dog would flee when people tried to approach her.


"Every day that a dog is out, it gets more scared," Cathy Eaton, founder of Lost Pets of Omaha Area, told the Omaha World-Herald. "Each time another person calls out to it, it freaks her out a little bit more. ... When a dog is lost, everything is strange to it."


An Omaha resident who spotted Ivy wandering near their home contacted the Nebraska Humane Society and, with the help of an officer, was able to lure the dog into a garage with some food.


Rescuers said Ivy had lost 10 to 15 pounds while loose and ended up with one of her legs caught in her collar, causing it to become embedded in her armpit.


Ivy was treated for her injuries and is now recovering at home, the humane society said.

British man drinks Capri Sun in 16.65 seconds to set Guinness record

A British man who decided to attempt a Guinness World Record while in COVID-19 lockdown captured the title for fastest time to drink a Capri Sun pouch: 16.65 seconds.


Declan Evans, 20, of Lincoln, said he started to look for records to break while in lockdown during the summer and discovered Guinness had set the benchmark time for the record at 18 seconds, but it had yet to be officially attempted.


Evans said he performed several trial runs to master his technique and ended up with an official time of 16.65 seconds.


"It is a stupid record to hold, but that is the fun of the Guinness World Records," Evans told The Lincolnite. "I think it will definitely get beaten. I wouldn't say it was that fast.

"It is a silly record anyone can try, but I am proud to have it and it is still a world record. Once I achieved it, it was quite rewarding and I want to try more records in the future."


Evans said he is looking forward to the end of the pandemic so he can attempt outdoor records, such as fastest time to run a mile while carrying someone on a stretcher.

Theron Thompson said he was fishing in the Fort Peck Reservoir with his father, Jim Thompson, and a friend, Nate Peressini, when he reeled in a smallmouth bass that seemed impressive when he weighed it on Peressini's scale, but none of the men had good enough cellphone service on the water to look up the state record.


Thompson said it wasn't until hours later, when they were back on dry land, that he discovered the state record was 7.51 pounds.


"It was instantly, 'What should we do to get this confirmed and verified,'" Peressini told the Billings Gazette.


The men said it took multiple phone calls to reach a Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks warden, who agreed to meet them at Miles City Reynolds Market, where there was an official scale.


The smallmouth bass weighed 7.8 pounds and was declared a new state record.
