Woman Confronts Couple During Baby’s First Photo Shoot On Neighbourhood Sidewalk

in Trending

When attending a photo shoot with a 1-year-old, it’s probably wise to expect the unexpected. Kelyn and Isaiah set up a photo shoot for their daughter’s 1st birthday.

They thought they’d found the perfect setting: a picturesque walking trail in the Broadacres community, often frequented by local families and photographers.

On February 16, Kelyn and Isaiah sat their daughter down on a pink, fluffy blanket, alongside a simple setup of birthday balloons.

During the middle of the photo shoot their 1-year-old’s outdoor birthday photo shoot was rudely interrupted by a complete stranger.

The parents pulled out their phone and started recording, capturing the moment the angered woman smacked their balloons, dragged the pink blanket, and slapped the phone out of Isaiah’s hand. In the background the baby girl can be heard crying and screaming.

The woman has been identified as Franci Neely, a Houston socialite. She, along with other neighbors from the Broadacres community, say there are too many photo shoots in their neighborhood and that they cause damage to the property.

Neighbors have been posting signs to ban these so-called “disruptive” photo shoots. The city of Houston, however, says the esplanade and surrounding streets are public property.

Franci Neely released the following statement to “The Broadacres Homeowners Association Invests lots of money paying to maintain the trees, grass and walkways in our neighborhood. The high volume of commercial photography damages the property that Broadacres HOA pays to maintain and interferes with dog walkers and others who merely want to walk under the pretty trees. We asked the commercial photographers to please stop.

“I am very sorry that I got upset on late Saturday afternoon. Putting it in context, however: I saw three commercial photography shoots in one block at the same time, something that happens frequently. When I explained the situation to the first and third groups, they were respectful. The couple whose photo shoot obstructed the walkway was not. It’s hard to remain composed when confronted by shouted threats of lawsuits and false, inflammatory accusations.”

After this story went public, a very similar confrontation resurfaced. In spring 2018, a Houston dad says his daughters and their friends were taking prom photos along the same walking trail.

In footage he recorded on his cellphone, the same woman angrily confronted the group of teens.

Rescuers Rush To Save 2 Huge Clydesdales Trapped In Middle Of Frozen Lake Before It’s Too Late

in Trending

Two adult horses, struggling to stay alive in the middle of a frozen lake is definitely not something you witness very often.

On Pine Grove Lake in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, that is exactly what neighbours discovered right before frantically dialling 911.

These two Clydesdale horses known as Gunther and Wilhelm who are both 15 years old and weigh more than 1,500 pounds reside at the Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm.

The pair roamed onto the ice close by and fell straight through after being spooked by a sight or sound and broke out of their enclosure.

Once the rescue crews arrived, all they could see were two heads sticking out of the ice. Time was of the essence, because no one knew how long the horses had been submerged in the water, and they risked hypothermia. Not only that, but high-stress situations can cause “life-threatening colic or organ failure in a horse,” their owner explains.

The farm staff feared the worst and imagined the horrific sight of seeing Gunther’s and Wilhelm’s lifeless bodies being pulled from the lake.

The rescue crew this would be a difficult task since Gunther and Wilhelm weighed so much. They cut their own trench through the ice using chainsaws and ice picks, then used ropes to pull the horses out.

In the meantime the community gathered around Wilhelm and Gunther, bringing heaters and horse blankets in the event the horses survived.

Takea a look at the clip to see more details about this unbelievable rescue.

Man tries to kidnap 10-year-old girl in broad daylight, has no idea her dog is watching her back

in Trending

Dogs are attentive, caring, protective and, most importantly, loyal to the very last, hence why they are known as mans best friend.

This was certainly the case for one dog from Woodbridge, Virginia, who recently saved a 10-year-old girl from being abducted in broad daylight …

For many parents it’s the nightmare situation when their child goes for a walk and is almost snatched off the street by a stranger.

In order to protect her privacy, personal details of her family weren’t released by the authorities, but it still makes for an alarming read .

One Friday afternoon just before 4 pm a 10-year-old took her dog for a walk in a block off of Heather Glen Court, Woodbridge, Virginia.

The neighbourhood was busy as usual with the various comings and goings usually associated with that time.

People were returning from work, children were heading home after school which makes this attempted kidnap more firghtening.

Apparently the suspect followed the girl for a while when she noticed he was gaining on her, she picked up her pace. He finally made his intentions clear by sprinting after her and grabbed hold of her wrist.

The man attempted to take her by force thankfully her dog had other intentions.

The 10-year-old’s protector responded ferociously. It bit the criminal on the hand, forcing him to release his grip.

Reportedly, the assailant was so shocked he fled the scene immediately, allowing the girl time to get back home.

The Prince William County Police Department wrote in a statement: “At approximately 3:50pm, the victim, a 10-year-old girl, was reportedly walking her dog in the 1800 block of Heather Glenn Ct in Woodbridge when an unknown man approached her and grabbed her arm. During the encounter, the victim’s dog bit the suspect who then released her and fled on foot.”

Police officers soon swarmed the scene in the hope of finding the perpetrator, though he despite their efforts he wasn’t found.

Watch This Gang of Cows Break into a Grocery Store and Eat All the Vegetables

in Trending/Uncategorized

In Honk Kong there are estimated to be about 1,100 wild cows roaming the streets, according to the territory’s Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department.

Recently they published a report acknowledging the difficulties of “ensuring that they coexist with local residents in harmony.” The cattle are tolerated so as long as they don’t disrupt traffic, shit on the streets, or help themselves to fruit and vegetables in supermarkets.

Earlier this month, some cows shattered that peace agreement when they stormed the aisles of a local supermarket raiding the fresh produce section. The wild animals entered the Fusion grocery store in Mui Wo at about 8 PM, heading straight for the fruit and vegetable shelves, and treating themselves to a feast.

Footage posted to Facebook shows shoppers standing around awkwardly as the invaders ate up the supermarket’s supply of greens. Eventually, staff and store patrons managed to corral the cattle out of the store.

District Councillor Andy Wong Man-hon told Ming Pao that there are about 30 wild cows in Mui Wo, but this was the first time he’d heard of one breaking into a shop. He’s concerned it could happen again, though, given how often people feed fruit to the animals.

Last year, the South China Morning Post published an article about Hong Kong’s “long-standing” feral cow problem, pointing out that their rampancy in the territory is a result of rapid urban expansion and development that sprawled out into the surrounding countryside and forced various species of wildlife to wander into populated communities.

Ho Loy, chairwoman of the Lantau Buffalo Association, these feral cows are now just roaming and grazing in the same areas they always have. Even when faced with the drastic changes of radical urbanisation and shrinking grassland habitats.

“Lots of people think it’s annoying to have these cows roaming onto traffic roads,” said Ho. “But they don’t understand that these sites were where the cows and their predecessors used to eat and live before the landscapes were covered with cement and turned into city roads.

A spokesperson for the company that owns the Fusion grocery store told Coconuts that all the produce was destroyed after the cow raid, and the shelves were thoroughly cleaned.

Take a look at the raid in the video clip below:

Husband plants 6000 trees to honor late wife, 15-years-later photos reveal true motive

in Trending

The love of Winston Howe’s life was a woman named Janet. For them it was certainly love at first sight which grew stronger over time.

After getting married in 1962 the couple moved into a farmhouse where Janet gave birth to their son shortly after..the couple came to share a bond that many dreamed of.

Their love for each other was so strong that people in their community would ask them how their marriage remained so happy for all those years.

However their happiness didn’t last forever. In 1995, after 33 years of marriage, Janet suddenly passed away from an unexpected heart attack at the age of 50.

Their relationship was solid and strong, their son was healthy and their farm flourished. Their life was perfect in their Wickwar, Gloucestershire, Winston and Janet’s dream home for over three decades.

When the love of his life was gone, Winston was devastated it felt like his whole world had collapsed.

Winston planted 6,000 oak trees in a field near the home they had shared for so many years, he decided to pay homage to his beloved wife.

Therefore, Winston began planting trees – a lot of trees, he wanted to create a private, sacred place where he and his son could visit on difficult days.

Winston’s tribute so special just take a look at what he concealed inside the forest — a heart-shaped meadow.

His beautiful declaration of love was kept hidden from the world for 17 years. Winston had fulfilled his goal, but the true motivation behind his work remained a secret, hidden in plain sight among the trees.

In 2012, Winston’s secret was finally discovered when a man named Andy Collett was up in his hot air balloon. He looked down and saw the heart from the sky.

Winston’s beautiful memorial was his very own secret garden for years until Andy happened to cruise over the land.

You can just imagine the love story. I have my own balloon and am quite a regular flyer, but this was the most amazing sight I have ever seen from the sky,” Andy explains.

The tip of Winston Howes’ heart points toward Janet’s childhood home, the village of Wotton Hill.

Winston also built a hedge around it, too, and every spring, daffodils bloom in the center.

I thought it was a great idea — it was a flash of inspiration — and I planted several thousand oak trees. Once it was completed we put a seat in the field, overlooking the hill near where she used to live,” an emotional Winston explains.

Winston said that he sometimes walks to the heart-shaped meadow to think back on the great times he spent with Janet.

It is a lovely and lasting tribute to her which will be here for years,” Winston said.

Although nothing can bring Janet back to life, Winston can rest assured that she would love the heart-shaped meadow that was made just for her.

Mom Calls Out Anti-Vaxxers For Exposing Her 15-Day-Old Baby To The Measles Virus

in Trending

Although it is a personal choice each parent should make a decision for themselves about vaccinating their child. However according to mom Jennifer Hibben-White it’s not as simple as that.

The Canadian mom took to Facebook and shared an angry post she wrote addressed to “anti-vaxxers” — people who refuse to vaccinate their kids — for putting her own baby at risk.

In 2015, Jennifer’s son, Griffin, received a fightening call from the doctor when her was 2 weeks old. Apparently a patient with measles, sat in the waiting room not long before Jennifer and her baby had arrived for his checkup.

That meant both had been exposed to the highly contagious virus. Griffin was far too young to have received a measles vaccine. His poor mom had to wait for a week to see if any symptoms appeared. Luckily, nothing appeared.

With many measles outbreaks occurring across the United States, these precautions are completely necessary. But Jennifer asked why should her baby have to suffer because of other people’s anti-vaxx choices? Now her Facebook rant has received over 600,000 shares so far.

Since it was invented in 1963 the measles vaccine has saved thousands of lives. The measles virus, which used to be a common fatal childhood disease, which was eliminated from the United States in 2000.

However, in recent year there seems to have been several outbreaks of the disease. The resurgence is largely attributed to “anti-vaxxers” who refuse to vaccinate their children.

Vaccines work by “herd immunity,” which means that the vaccines can truly eradicate a disease only if nearly everyone is vaccinated. Some people can’t get vaccinated because they’re too young or because their immune systems are too weak.

If everyone else in the area is vaccinated, however, vulnerable people are protected against the disease as well. But if there are pockets of unvaccinated people (ahem, anti-vaxxers), then babies, older people, and others who are unable to get the vaccine are put at risk.

Like, for example, Jennifer Hibben-White’s baby, Griffin.

On February 9, 2015, Jennifer received a notice from her health center informing her that her baby had potentially been exposed to the measles virus when she’d taken him to an appointment at the doctor’s office.

At only 15 days old, Jennifer’s baby was much too young to have had his measles vaccine. She was, understandably, annoyed.

The mom shared a post she wrote on Facebook about her experience, calling out anti-vaxxers for putting her baby at risk.

On February 9th, I received a phone call from York Region Public Health, informing me that Griffin, alongside my mother and I, was potentially exposed to the measles virus while attending a newborn weigh-in appointment at my doctor’s office in Markham on January 27th,” Jennifer began.

I was informed that someone who later developed measles sat in the doctor’s waiting room between 1 hour before and 30 minutes before we arrived,” she continued. “I was also informed that measles is regarded as ‘airborne’ and can stay in the air and on surfaces up to 2 hours after the infected person has left. I was then asked if I had had the measles vaccine. I had. Griffin. Griffin had not. Can not.”

Jennifer, Griffin, and Jennifer’s 3-year-old daughter Aurelia — who’d had only one MMR vaccine at that point — were left to sit in quarantine at home and wait to see if any symptoms arose.

We are to sit tight and watch for symptoms: fever, cough, runny nose. If we develop any of these we are to call my doctor and arrange to come in under official medical precautions. We are to wait at home, in isolation, until February 17th, after which the 21 days of possible incubation will have passed and we are clear,” her post continued.

So, Griffin is now Schrödinger’s baby. Simultaneously with measles, and without it. Until he develops symptoms, or until a further 7 days pass. One or other. And I’m angry. Angry as hell.”

I won’t get angry at or blame the person in the waiting room. I would have likely done the same thing… you get sick, you go to the doctor. I have no idea what their story is and I will never know. But I do know one thing: If you have chosen to not vaccinate yourself or your child, I blame you. I blame you.”

You have stood on the shoulders of our collective protection for too long. From that high height, we have given you the PRIVILEGE of our protection, for free. And in return, you gave me this week. A week from hell. Wherein I don’t know if my BABY will develop something that has DEATH as a potential outcome. DEATH.”

Jennifer continued to strongly outline why anti-vaxxer logic is faulty.

You think you are protecting your children from thimerosal? You aren’t. It’s not in their vaccine. You think you are protecting them from autism? You aren’t. There is no, none, nada, nothing in science that proves this.”

She also explained why this topic is so dear to her: Her 5-year-old daughter had passed away a couple years prior.

You would be the first to line up if you had an inkling of what the death of a child feels like,” Jennifer wrote angrily. “You have no idea what it feels like to go through what we went through.”

So, look at Griffin. Tell me why he gets to bear the brunt of your stupidity and reckless abuse of our protection? Tell me. Seven more days until I know that my baby is safe. Seven more days. How is your week going, anti-vaxxers?

The post was shared over 600,000 times. Most people emphasised her thoughts.

I’ve been raging for you too,” one woman wrote. “You have a gazillion people rooting for wee Griffin.”

Thankfully, Jennifer followed up a week later to share that Griffin made it through the incubation period with no sign of measles.

Griffin was smiley and happy this morning and symptom-free,” Jennifer explains. “We can leave the house. And that’s amazing news.”

No mother should ever have to go through this level of stress when it’s completely preventable.

Horrified woman finds dog covered in odd marks, rushes to vet for answers

in Trending

Throughout the world today there are countless people who not only should not be let own a pet but should never be let near any animal.

Hayden Howard discovered something was seriously wrong with her pet dog in early Spring. She noticed her English Mastiff Jackson was covered in what seemed like insect bites all over his body.

The pet dog had been playing in the back garden earlier that day.When Hayden called him in she made the startling discovery which had her dumbfounded.

Upon closer inspection she came to the realization her pets injuries may be a whole lot worse than she had initially thought.

Poor Jackson was in fact riddled in bullet holes to many areas of his body. ”I was completely shocked, I didn’t know what to think,” Hayden said.

After realizing her beloved pet had suffered such serious wounds, Hayden immediately rushed him to the neared vet.

The vet examined Jackson, finding numerous tiny bullet holes that had been caused by someone shooting at him with a BB gun.

There was one stuck under his eyelid, one in his ear, one in his knee, they were everywhere,” Hayden says.

Jackson had been shot in so many places over his body that the vet had to shave off most of his fur to try and remove the plastic pellets.

After painstakingly removing 27 pellets from Jackson, 20 still remained inside the pets flesh and had to be left where they were. He had also been shot in 20 other places where the bullets did not lodge.

Bringing to total a shocking statistic of over 70 times the poor pooch was shot at. How can someone be so evil to do this to a poor animal who has done no harm to anyone?

Police were informed of the incident and were hot on the heels of the suspect who lives nearby. It did not take them long to apprehend the suspect after finding a gun and bullets hidden in a neighbors home.

The neighbor in question had previous convictions relating to drug offences. Hopefully he Jackson gets his justice and this evil human being is locked up for what he done to this poor defenseless animal.

A person like this should never be allowed near an animal again after the cruelty he served out to poor Jackson.

Thankfully, reports are that Jackson is recovering well after his ordeal, according to his loving owner Hayden.

Pastor donates kidney to stranger, but during transplant doctors freeze in horror

in Trending

There are some people who believe in fate, while others think life’s strange occurrences are just coincidences.

For Don Herbert his stop at a church yard sale one day led to not just one life being saved but possibly two. Call it a coincidence or fate but this is a story of love and faith which has lit up social media.

Don Herbert a former professional wrestler turned gospel singer passed by North Carolina church along with his wife when they happened to notice a sign and so they stopped to take a look.

Don decided to stop because of the gospel music coming from inside, that simple choice would start his family on a journey they never could have imagined.

The music coming from the church led him to Pastor Tim Jones, the man who would end up saving his life.

For me, being a gospel singer, that was like saying, ‘come on, come on,’” Don recalled of the moment he heard the music.

The “special invitation” seemingly came from a Higher Power as the man met Pastor Tim Jones, who shared Don’s love for gospel music.

Don left that day with an invite to come and sing with Pastor Jones.

Went to a yard sale with my wife never expecting to find anything and come out with a date for the group to sing,” Don said.

Don didn’t share his personal struggle he had experienced for over 10 years with his new friend.

Six months earlier he had undergone a liver transplant after more than a decade of sickness. Although the operation was successful his kidneys were failing.

Sick with the with worry and his wife posted on Facebook desperatly seeking help.

“I felt alone. I was more depressed. I was more discouraged than Don ever felt. He had that faith,”  Belinda admitted.

Doctors informed Don his heart had blockages and he would require surgery, however his kidneys were weak and wouldn’t survive the surgery. Belinda found herself praying to God.

I said, ‘Lord, you told me that you wouldn’t give me any more than I could handle.’ And He said, ‘That’s not really what I said. Because, if you could always handle the things, why would you ever need Me? So, you need to release it. Give Me your burdens. I’ll carry them.’ And I did,” Belinda recalled.

After that, she asked for help on Facebook. 

It is so hard to ask something so tremendous and so humbling, but I want the man that I love to live a long life. I want to grow old with him by my side,” Belinda wrote on Facebook, where Don had 500 friends.

Once Pastor Jones saw the post he contacted Don and his wife, without any delay and offered to help in any way possible. Don and his wife were happy and Pastor Jones agreed to take the test to see if he was a match for donation.

The thing that really tugged at my heart was on down the post she said, ‘I love him. We’ve been together this long. He’s my best friend and I can’t imagine going through my life without my best friend by my side,’” Tim recalled.

Once the test results came back, it turned out Tim was the perfect match.

Once surgeons started to operate on both men, they discovered something remarkable in Pastor Jones’ body that caused worry.

It seems Pastor Jones had an aneurysm, which could have killed him if it had continued to go unknown.

Tim would have never known about his aneurysm.

This man’s kindness not only saved Don’s life but also his own, now that’s karma.

Both men are alive and healthy today and often come together to share their magnificent story!
