Impressive Animals: #2 Purple squirrel


A purple squirrel was found in a Pennsylvania backyard, and folks were flummoxed as to how it got its unusual coloring. One theory: It fell into a portable toilet. The couple who caught the squirrel took a photograph that stirred much debate, and then released the squirrel back into the wild. Its whereabouts are unknown, and the local game commission refuses to launch a hunt for it.

    Bieber set for Mayweather's ring walk

    Pop music star Justin Bieber says he'll be at Floyd Mayweather's side when the unbeaten American walks to the ring on May 2 to take on Manny Pacquiao in their welterweight world title super-fight. Bieber, a friend of Mayweather who has accompanied the fighter to the ring at other fights, told celebrity website TMZ.com that he would be part of the boxer's entourage for the long anticipated bout with Filipino ring icon Pacquiao in Las Vegas. Bieber, a onetime teenage heart-throb, has in recent years found himself in trouble for run-ins with authority ranging in seriousness from egg-throwing vandalism to alleged assault on a photographer in Argentina and a limo driver in Canada. Rapper Ludacris told interviewer DJ Envy on the radio show "The Breakfast Club" that Mayweather, whose unblemished 47-0 record has helped him become the highest-paid sportsman in the world, is training as never before.

  • Error-afflicted Chiefs still too good for Cheetahs
    Error-afflicted Chiefs still too good for Cheetahs

    A much-improved scrum in the second half steered an ill-disciplined Waikato Chiefs to a 37-27 win over the Central Cheetahs in Hamilton on Saturday. The Chiefs, the most penalised team in the competition, avoided the pitfall of fatigue that often hits New Zealand sides returning from South Africa, but they could not avoid the wrath of referee Craig Joubert. Playing without regular hooker Hika Elliott, who was red-carded in last week's loss to the Coastal Sharks in Durban, the Chiefs gave away 15 penalties including two yellow cards. "We've been training a different way and the Cheetahs have a fantastic maul and it took us a while to adapt to that," Chiefs captain Liam Messam said of the penalty count.
