 Police Investigate Death Threats To Movie Theater Owners Screening Pro-Life Film 'Unplanned'

(Breitbart) — Police have been called in to investigate allegations of death threats made to cinema theater owners in Canada who had scheduled to screen the pro-life movie Unplanned.

B.J. McKelvie, president of Cinedicon, the Canadian distributor of the film that tells the story of Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood manager-turned pro-life activist, confirmed two Canadian independent cinema owners reported threats that caused them to be "fearful for their families," said LifeSiteNews.

Yet another independent theater owner was reportedly "harassed to the extreme."

Chuck Konzelman, one of the film's producer-directors, reportedly said McKelvie requested, for the sake of safety, the film's producers remove from their website the July 12 listing of 46 Canadian theaters that will be screening the movie.

Black Vultures Are Roosting In Kentucky And
Eating Farm Animals Alive, Pets As Well

(Courier-Journal) — They'll devour slimy newborn calves, full-grown ewes and lambs alive by pecking them to death. First the eyes, then the tongue, then every last shred of flesh.

And there isn't much defense against black vultures and turkey vultures, both of which are federally protected and cannot be killed without a permit.

The Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 covers all migratory birds, their nests and their eggs, which means that the birds can't be harmed without federal permission. Their nests can only be disrupted, as a deterrent, if there are no eggs or young in them.

But as the vultures, which are native to Kentucky, have multiplied in numbers nationally over the last two decades, they have become more of a problem for farmers. Each year, Kentucky farmers lose around $300,000 to $500,000 worth of livestock to these native vultures, according to Joe Cain, commodity division director for the Kentucky Farm Bureau.

 Marine Officials Warn Against Exotic Pets On
North Carolina Base After Snakes Found

(Fox News) — U.S. Marines stationed in North Carolina have a new nemesissssss. Officials at Camp Lejeune issued a warning late last week about the threat of exotic snakes after at least two were found on the North Carolina base in recent months.

A ball python was found in a barracks and a red-tailed boa constrictor was found in a parking lot, authorities said.

"Neither of these snakes are native to the United States and can pose various threats to the environment and human safety," officials wrote in a Facebook post. "Individuals living within base housing areas are permitted to have select domestic animals only."

The Camp Lejeune base says that those living in base housing areas can have specific domestic animals, but not wild or exotic animals such as venomous, constrictor-type snakes or other reptiles, raccoons, skunks, ferrets or iguanas.

 Cops ID Blue Bell Ice Cream Licker,
Won’t Press Charges Because She’s A Minor

(NY Post) — The cold case gripping the nation has finally been licked!

Texas cops on Friday said they found the girl who licked a tub of Blue Bell ice cream and then put it back on the shelf – and she even confessed after being busted with the boyfriend who filmed her in the video gone viral.

“They were both forthcoming with what occurred and admitted to the act,” Lufkin Police and Fire announced in a proud “CASE SOLVED” posting on Facebook on Friday.

The dairy detectives outlined the intricacies of their case, saying that a catfisher had deliberately misled everyone and bragged about it on Instagram – slowing down them getting the real inside scoop on who was behind the gross viral video.

And as the girl is under 17, they also seem to have thawed on locking her in the cooler despite previously warning she could have faced up to 20 years in jail along with fines of up to $10,000.

 Tunisia Bans Face Veils In Public Institutions
After Bombing

(Aljazeera) — Tunisian Prime Minister Youssef Chahed has banned the wearing of the niqab – a full-face veil – in public institutions with immediate effect, citing security reasons.

"Chahed signed a government decree that bars any person with an undisclosed face from access to public headquarters, administrations, institutions for security reasons," an official source told Reuters News Agency on Friday.

The decision, which was reported on state media, comes at a time of heightened security in the country following a double suicide bombing in the capital, Tunis, on June 27 that left two people dead and seven wounded.

Witnesses said one of the bombers was disguised in a niqab. The Interior Ministry denied this and said the mastermind of the bombings blew himself up on Tuesday to evade capture.

The attack was the third such incident within a week and came at the peak of tourist season as Tunisia prepared for an autumn parliamentary election.

Family Angry Over Request To
Remove Virgin Mary Statue

(Detroit Free Press) — Every morning, each member of the Samona family stops to pray in front of a small statue of the Virgin Mary that adorns the flower bed in the yard of their Novi home.

They pause again in front of the tiny statue when they return home at day's end. It's been part of the family's routine since they moved into the Tollgate Woods neighborhood in 2003

On Tuesday, the Samonas received a letter from their homeowners association, stating that the Virgin Mary figure and other pieces of statuary in their yard were in violation of neighborhood policies.

The family believes it's discrimination. "There is no doubt in my mind that this is an attack on our religion," said Joseph Samona, who lives at the home with his parents."We have already received an outpouring of support from friends and family, and we are prepared to fight this tooth and nail."

Innovating Airmen Use Equipment From The 1950s
To Quickly Refuel F-35s

(Air Force Times) — What is old is new again.

The 366th Logistics Readiness Squadron at Mountain Home Air Force Base in Idaho is employing old equipment from the 1950s to quickly refuel the F-35 Lightning II.

The so-called Gunfighters are the first Air Force squadron to utilize a Type 1 hydrant system from the 1950s with hose carts from the 1970s that hook up to 500,000 gallon tanks during hot-pit refueling of the F-35s. Using the equipment means the squadron can "virtually endlessly" refuel the aircraft and do so efficiently.

"Our old equipment is persisting and performing up to the hot-pits gold standard of 13 minute turnarounds," said Tech Sgt. Zachary J. Kiniry, the noncommissioned officer in charge of the 366th LRS fuels service center, according to an Air Force news release.
