            Police: Mugger returned to confess
A man who punched a woman in the face and stole her car 
said he returned to the scene of the Miami crime minutes
later because he "felt bad," police alleged.  Police said 
Armando Pena, 44, approached Gladys Gonzalez, 60, as she
was arriving for work at an apartment complex, The Miami
Herald reported Tuesday.  Pena punched Gonzalez in the 
face, knocking her to the ground, and sped off in her white
Ford Taurus, police said.  The incident was reported by 
off-duty police officer Omar Grass, who saw the Taurus 
speed off and tended to the injured woman before paramedics
arrived.  Police said Pena returned to the scene with the
stolen car 12 minutes after the incident and told police 
he was the one who struck the woman and stole the car.
They said he admitted to smoking crack cocaine before the 
attack and cited "drugs" as the reason for his actions.
Pena said he turned himself in because he "felt bad.''

           Sept. 11 rescue dog to be cloned
A German shepherd that served as a rescue dog in the days
following the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks has been chosen for
cloning by a Mill Valley, Calif., company.  BioArts
International said retired Canadian police officer James 
Symington wrote an essay about his dog, Trakr, that won 
the company's contest to find the most "clone-worthy dog," 
the New York Daily News reported Tuesday.  Symington and
Trakr were among the first search-and-rescue teams to seek 
out survivors of the Sept. 11 attacks at Ground Zero in 
New York City.  Trakr, 15, now suffers from a degenerative
neurological disorder that experts said may be linked to 
exposure to toxic smoke at the World Trade Center site in
Lower Manhattan.  "We received many touching submissions
to our contest, describing some truly amazing dogs," 
BioArts chief executive Lou Hawthorne said. "Trakr's story
blew us away. His many remarkable capabilities were proven 
beyond all doubt on our nation's darkest hour -- and we 
view the work of cloning him as a great honor."

          Destructive vultures won't leave house
Federal wildlife officials said they will consult with a
Virginia Beach, Va., man whose home has been targeted by
a group of vultures.  Will Ciccone said all of his attempts 
to keep the vultures away from his property have failed and 
the birds have destroyed three grill covers, a hot tub 
cover, a pool cover and several chair cushions belonging
to his family, The (Norfolk) Virginian-Pilot reported
Tuesday.  Ciccone said he tried rigging a paintball gun to
fire at the birds and he displayed fake owls outside his 
home, but the vultures quickly adapted to his attempts an
continued to congregate in his yard.  "If you've got
cockroach problems, you kill them. If you've got ant 
problems, you kill them," he said. "I've got this problem,
but I can't do anything about it."  State wildlife officials
have the authority to ward off the birds using non-lethal
means, but Scott Barras, director of the U.S. Department
of Agriculture Wildlife Services, said those solutions are
often temporary.  Only federal officials have the authority
to use lethal means to get rid of the birds. Barras said
his department plans to meet with the Ciccones and local
authorities to find a solution to the vulture problem.

Do you think the city is negligent in this case?

"You can blame whoever you want, it was an accident."

"The Zoo was at fault, not the city."

"it is a sad event, but too many people sue to get rich."
