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.

The Tarco flight from Khartoum to Doha turned back after about 30 minutes and made an emergency landing in Khartoum after the cat emerged in the cockpit of the Boeing 737 and attacked the pilot.


The crew attempted to capture the feline, but the flight turned around when they found themselves unable to wrangle the stowaway.


Officials said the plane had been parked for cleaning overnight before the flight and the cat, believed to be a feral stray, most likely found a concealed space in the cockpit to sleep before being jostled awake when the plane went into flight.

California family's missing French bulldog found 600 miles away in Mexico

A French bulldog that went missing from his family's home in California's Bay Area was found four weeks later after being purchased by a man 600 miles away in Mexico.


Debbie Campbell said Brody, her emotional support dog, went missing from her San Lorenzo home Feb. 3, and despite searches of the area and photos posted by her family to social media, weeks past without any news of her lost pet.


Campbell said she was shocked to receive a phone call last week from Benjamin Gonzalez, a man who said he bought a dog matching Brody's description from a man on the street in downtown Tijuana, 600 miles from the Bay Area.


Gonzalez said family members who live in the Bay Area told him the dog he purchased looked like photos of a lost dog they had seen on social media.


Gonzalez sent Campbell a photo of Brody's identifying tattoo, confirming the canine's identity.


Gonzalez, 37, said he had lived in the Bay Area since he was a baby, but was deported from the United States two years ago and has lived alone in Tijuana ever since.

"He's from the Bay. I'm from the Bay. It was just weird," Gonzalez told KGO-TV. "I guess he was just meant to go back."


The Campbells paid Gonzalez back for the money he spent buying Brody off the street, but he declined any other reward.


"When he video called us to show us the dog, that took my breath away," Campbell said. "It's a blessing that that man called, because otherwise there's no way we could have gotten him back."


The Campbells said they don't know for sure how Brody ended up in Mexico, but they suspect he was intentionally stolen to be resold due to the breed's popularity and high price tag.
