Like a bull in a china shop, but worse

Mon May 19, 11:40 AM ET

(Germany or Florida) (Reuters) - A family were stunned when a rampaging bull burst through the back door of their house, charged around the living room, and then left by the front door.

"The animal basically did a tour of the hall, the kitchen and the living room before leaving the building," said PK, a spokesman for police in the western city of (Germany or Florida) on Monday. "It came in the back and went out the front."

None in the family were injured, but the bull laid waste to furnishings, causing an estimated $15,600 of damage, police said. The bull left after the owner of the house opened the front door for it.

The red-brown bull was part of a herd of cattle that had escaped from a farmer and overrun a section of the nearby town of (Germany or Florida).

EXTRA ADDED BONUS!  *Neither* Germany or Florida, but I'll be damned if this story doesn't belong here anyway!!

Mass. officer's gun goes off during safety class

Tue May 20, 3:21 PM ET

NEW BEDFORD, Mass. - A firearms instructor in southern Massachusetts has been assigned to other duties after his gun accidentally went off while he was teaching a class on weapons safety. Officials say the Glock handgun discharged while Maj. Donald Lamar was demonstrating to Bristol County deputy sheriffs how to safely holster the weapon.

The bullet ripped a hole in Lamar's pants but missed his leg and foot.

Sheriff Thomas Hodgson says the officer made a "gross error in judgment" by not emptying the weapon before the class last week.

Lamar, a certified firearms instructor since 2005, was transferred to another division and will not carry a firearm while the incident is being investigated.

ETA:  survey says: GERMANY
