    From foxnews

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska ? A teacher jogging along a rural Alaskan road was killed in an animal attack and authorities say wolves are the chief suspects.

    The body of Candice Berner, 32, was found Monday off the road a mile outside the village of Chignik Bay on the Alaska Peninsula, which is about 474 miles southwest of Anchorage.

    Authorities said the body had been dragged off the road to the village's lagoon and was surrounded by wolf tracks.

    In an autopsy report Thursday, the Alaska State Medical Examiner listed "multiple injuries due to animal mauling" as the cause of death for Berner, a special education teacher originally from Slippery Rock, Pa., who began working in Alaska in August.

    The autopsy could not say which animals, said Col. Audie Holloway, head of the Alaska State Troopers, but wolves are the chief suspect.

    "There's no other carnivores in that area that are out and active," he said.

    Wolves, bears, foxes and other wildlife have disturbed bodies in the Alaska wilderness, but Holloway said the autopsy ruled out other causes that may have killed Berner. Additional tests could tie the death to wolves, Holloway said.

    "If we're able to actually prove which animal, it will be through some kind of DNA analysis or through some expert that can maybe testify or explain how they know that it's a wolf," he said.

    Troopers have plenty of circumstantial evidence leading them to point the finger at wolves.

    "There were wolf tracks all around the body, and drag marks associated with those wolf tracks," Holloway said.

    Tracks indicated more than one wolf was involved.

    "From the number of prints at the scene, we're thinking there probably were, possibly, two, three, maybe four," Holloway said.

    Wolf attacks on humans are rare and there has not been a documented case of a wolf killing a human in Alaska. But concerns over the large predators persist.

    In 2007, villagers in the western Eskimo village of Marshall posted sentries at night on the town periphery to keep wolves out after a pack of wolves attacked and killed six sled dogs. A wolf killed by villagers turned out to be rabid.

    In Chignik Bay, a community of 105 residents, villagers were already were on alert because of wolves running boldly nearby, said Johnny Lind, president of the village council.

    In comments Thursday before the autopsy results were announced, Lind said wolf involvement was apparent.

    "It's obvious. Goodness. It's obvious," he said.

    Since Tuesday, people were not traveling alone, school children were accompanied to school and armed patrols on snowmobiles were looking for wolves, he said.

    "Everybody's kind of staying close to the village," he said.

    Multiple calls left for the spokeswoman of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Jennifer Yuhas, were not returned Thursday.

    Most adult male wolves in Alaska weigh 85 to 115 pounds but they occasionally reach 145 pounds, according to the Department of Fish and Game. Females average 5 to 10 pounds lighter than males and rarely weigh more than 110 pounds. Wolves reach adult size by about 1 year of age, and the largest wolves occur where prey is abundant year round.

    Rick Luthi, the Lake and Peninsula School District's chief operating officer, said Berner during her short time in Alaska tried to take in as many experiences as she could. The district distributed a photo of her on a district outing catching crab.

    "She wasn't going to miss anything about living in that area," he said.

    Under 5 feet tall, Berner had boxed and lately had been training for long-distance running.

    "She was a gymnast by early training and was in very good physical condition," Luthi said.


    So..wonder if those twilight fans will say Jacob Black is a better werewolf than these real wolves.

    Sorry Arlon, but being mauled to death by a pack of wolves doesn't really constitute as "wacky" unless you have a sick sense of humour.

    Woman consumes 12k Calories a day in an effort to be the world's largest lardass.

    Her 49-year-old partner Philippe ? who she met on a dating site for plus-size people ? was encouraging her to reach her goal, she said.

    "I think he'd like it if I was bigger ... he's a real belly man and completely supports me," she said.


    He won't be so supportive once you crush his spine going reverse-cowgirl. [face_sick]

    Link to see the guy....

    Not satisfied with living in Florida, Jonathon "The Impaler" Sharkey wants to move to Washington, D.C., to become the nation's first vampire president, reports CBS affiliate WTSP.

    Sharkey, 45, spent Friday on a Greyhound bus with his new fiancee, Audrianna Foster, a 19-year-old girl from Ohio he met online. She too believes she is a vampire, or vampyre.

    "I haven't dated a girl older than 19 since 2006," said the Tampa man as his 19-year-old daughter and his 2-year-old grandson met him at the Greyhound station. "It's good to be me."

    "The Impaler" claims he's a direct descendent of Vlad II the Impaler, better known as Dracula.

    He has scheduled a Monday press conference in Tampa to announce his plans to file paperwork to run for President of the United States in 2012. He recently switched his party affiliation from Independent to Republican so he can run with the G.O.P.

    He ran for Governor of Minnesota in 2006 and also had short-lived bids for U.S. Senate in 2000, U.S. President in 2004, and U.S. President in 2008.

    In an extended interview with WTSP, Sharkey shared well-thought-out opinions on capital punishment, the abortion issue, and veterans issues. However, he also bragged about having numerous teen-aged girlfriends in recent years.


    The girls have also provided several skeletons in Sharkey's closet.

    He's accused of "brainwashing" a 16-year-old in Minnesota. The two were engaged until last month. Her family now has a restraining order against Sharkey and claims his texts to her violate it.

    He reportedly admitted to harassing another 16-year-old Minnesota girl online in 2009.

    He was arrested in Tennessee several years ago and is currently on probation from Indiana after he was found guilty in 2009 of intimidating a judge. He served six months in a Marion Co. jail before his release. Sources confirm the Secret Service has had to keep him on its radar, since he moves around the country.

    Sharkey was once on the Executive Committee of the Hillsborough Co. Republican Party (HCRP) in the 1990s, but A.J. Matthews, HCRP State Committeeman, says he didn't show any of the extreme behaviors he's exhibiting now.

    "He does believe in Republican values," Matthews said. "Is he going to make a big splash with his current identification of being a vampire? That's up to the voters to decide."

    Matthews said he'd help Sharkey with campaign basics, just like he would any Republican candidate. But he's been trying to advise him to focus on mainstream issues and away from the extreme behaviors.
    Sharkey, meanwhile, continues to develop a movie on his campaign, "The True Impaler."

    In a bizarre marriage this month Korean man Lee Jin-gyu married his pillow in a traditional ceremony.

    Its one of the most peculiar marriages for some years, the pillow in question bears the face of a female anime character and was photographed at the wedding in a traditional wedding dress as the pair kissed after exchanging vows.
