Five More Dead in Latest Puppy Fever Outbreak.....

Belvidere, NE- Health officials are warning Belvidere residents to avoid pet stores, dog parks, and even dog friendly businesses as the number of deaths related to puppy fever has increased by five to over ninety people since the first case was reported in early December.

Area puppy Chester Ruffington III, shown wrapped in a light blue baby blanket and gloating over the death of his latest victim, may be the worst serial killer in Thayer county history.
"This is the worst public health disaster in Thayer county in decades," Thayer County Health Officer Mort Fishman, MD explained. "I've seen the bodies, many of which are children. Dead children whose little hearts were full of love for these God damned puppies. Love and clotted blood. It's the clotted blood that actually killed them, but the love was there."

Despite the casualties, twelve of which occurred during a therapy dog visit to the Shady Acres Home for Wayward Tots and Teens (formerly Shady Acres Correctional Facility for Wayward Youth), Belvidere mayor Spooner Jenkins has asked that residents remain calm. According to Mayor Jenkins, the town has faced hardship in the past and persevered. "I certainly don't want to downplay the deaths of so many of our beloved townspeople, but this is why you aren't supposed to feed them after midnight. Or was that the gremlins. I can't keep up."

Creole Climatologists Reveal Shocking New Data on Atmospheric Tony Chachere Levels.....

New Orleans, LA- Experts at the New Orleans Department of Creole Climatology (NODCC) have announced that for the first time since data collection began in 1972, South Louisiana atmospheric levels of Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning did not dip below 400 ppm during 2016.

"Typically we see an atmospheric nadir during peak crawfish boil season in mid to late Spring," Creole climatologist and NODCC Chief Mirliton Gauthier explained. "That's when large amounts of the naturally occurring blend of flavorful spices are bound up by crawfish, corn on the cob, new red potatoes, sausage, and maybe a few pounds of boiled gulf shrimp. Aw, cher. Ca c'est bon!"

Not everyone thinks that rising Tony Chachere levels are a reason to panic, however. File' Boudin Prejean Jr., lead strategist at the Thibodeaux, LA branch of the Cateaux Institute, is calling for government leaders in South Louisiana to avoid rushing into any decisions. "The levels are rising, I can't deny that. But this is a complicated process with many factors playing a role, from the recent historic floods to the Saint's defense this year. Hasty policy changes are not the answer."

Area Animal Shelter to Execute One Dog Every Hour Unless Adoption Demands are Met.....

Lafayette, LA- Bayou Vermilion Animals-N-Need, a non-profit animal shelter serving the people of Lafayette and St. Martin parishes since 1981, and operated by the Fido's Friends Network, has announced that they will execute one dog every hour starting tomorrow at 8 a.m. and continuing until all remaining dogs are either dead or adopted.

Area puppy Leonard Samuelson, shown here adorably crying out for help from his personal Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, will be executed tomorrow unless adopted by a loving and stable family, preferably without other dogs., by 6 p.m.
"It's certainly a radical departure from the standard approach to encouraging pet adoption," shelter manager Clip Remington explained. "But many of these animals have spent years in the system, and frankly we were out of options after last week's failed Guns for Pups event. Now it's in the hands of the good people of our community to keep these dogs alive. They know how to put an end to this."

The shelter's plan is quickly drawing criticism from animal right's groups around the world. One such group, Animal Autonomy Now (AAN), is calling for an immediate stay of execution. According to AAN president Fran Leafletter, there are more effective ways to promote the assimilation of shelter animals into human society without requiring adoption. "Instead of what is essentially a transfer of ownership without consent of all involved parties, why not set up a mutually agreed upon relationship where the dog provides goods and/or services in exchange for room and board? This is 2017. Dogs can smell cancer now!"
