Scottish farmers lose damages claim after neighbor’s bull impregnated their cow

A Scottish couple has had a compensation claim rejected after arguing one of their pedigree Highland cows became impregnated by their neighbor’s bull.

Bernard and Kathleen Allen of Great Bernera, Isle of Lewis, sought $24,000, claiming they repeatedly found Ozzy, a Belted Galloway bull on land where they kept their livestock.

The Allens sought more than $24,000 in compensation, according to the BBC. But their neighbors, David and Janine Hargreaves, who have since moved, denied they were at fault for the condition of a boundary fence.

After hearing the case at Stornoway Sheriff Court in Lewis, a sheriff rejected the compensation claim this week.

Mr. and Mrs. Allen stated in court that they became aware of the Hargreaves’ bull in 2009, alleging it ambled into their farmland about 30 times over the next year when a taller fence was built; another incident sparked anger when the bull clashed with one of their own.

They further alleged that in 2010, one of their Highland cattle gave birth to a Belted Galloway-cross calf after mating with the Hargreaves’ bull.

Sheriff David Sutherland said in his ruling the “real nature of the claim was a neighbor dispute,” and added that while he was in no doubt Mrs. Allen was “extremely distressed” by the situation, “this does not excuse coming to court and presenting a case which is, at best, exaggerated and unreliable.”

“I accept the evidence of Mr. and Mrs. Hargreaves that while their cattle did go onto the crofts belonging to the pursuers, nonetheless that was only because of the state of repair of the fence which Mr. Allen was responsible for,” he said.

Romania’s interior minister quits in furor over inept police response to girl’s kidnapping

Romania’s interior minister resigned Tuesday after it took 19 hours to find a 15-year-old girl who reported her own kidnapping to police three times and then was killed.

Alexandra Macesanu’s rape and murder has sparked outrage in the country over the bumbling police response to her 911 calls.

Minister Nicolae Moga, appointed just six days ago, resigned only days after firing Romania’s top cop.

“I have made the decision to resign to save part of the ministry’s prestige which has been strongly impacted by the deficient activity of some if its employees, who were either fired or are about to be sanctioned,” Moga said according to Reuters.

Ex-swimming executive charged in Hungary for ordering deadly submachine hit on business rival in 1990s

A former Hungarian swimming executive was charged Tuesday with ordering a deadly hit on a business rival in Budapest over two decades ago.

Tamas Gyarfas, who was former vice president of the Lausanne-based International Swimming Federation’s Bureau, denied the charges when he was first detained back in April 2018. He was then released from jail on bail.

NYPD OFFICER ARRESTED IN CONNECTION WITH PLOT TO HIRE HITMAN TO KILL ESTRANGED HUSBAND AND BOYFRIEND’S DAUGHTER

Gyarfas’s lawyer Peter Zamecsnik said the latest charges are “absurd,” adding that “based on the investigation material I reviewed, the case will probably fail in court,” according to Reuters.

Hungarian media mogul Janos Fenyo was murdered back in 1998 after getting sprayed with submachine gun bullets in his car at a stoplight in Budapest. It was one of the more shocking killings in Hungary during the turbulent 1990s following the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe.

CANADIAN POLICE UNABLE TO ‘SUBSTANTIATE’ POSSIBLE SIGHTING OF MURDER SUSPECTS IN MANITOBA

Prosecutors claim both Gyarfas and Fenyo were business competitors, a rivalry that allegedly prompted Gyarfas to order the death of his nemesis.

“The accused decided in 1997 to settle the score for good by having the plaintiff killed,” prosecutors said in the statement, according to Reuters.

Authorities also said Gyarfas ordered the murder through an associate who he had known since 1994. The charges on Tuesday were brought after new evidence emerged in the last decade.

A Slovakian man, Jozef Rohac, was sentenced to life in jail by a Hungarian court in 2017 for the killing of Fenyo, but the name of the person who ordered the killing wasn’t revealed during a trial.

Boy, 8, dies after being pushed in front of German train; no motive

German prosecutors are still trying to determine the motives of a man suspected of pushing an 8-year-old boy and his mother in front of a train at Frankfurt’s main station. The boy suffered fatal injuries.

News agency dpa reported that Frankfurt prosecutors said Tuesday the suspect, a 40-year-old Eritrean citizen, hasn’t yet given any information on a possible motive.

Police have said that the man apparently tried unsuccessfully to push a third person onto the track before fleeing the scene Monday, and that there appeared to be no connection between the suspect and the victims. He was chased by passers-by and arrested near the station.

Interior Minister Horst Seehofer planned to meet the heads of German security authorities in Berlin later Tuesday following the incident.

Canadian ‘thrill-kill’ suspects face grizzlies, blood-sucking flies as the law’s long arm closes in

Westlake Legal Group canada-manhunt Canadian 'thrill-kill' suspects face grizzlies, blood-sucking flies as the law's long arm closes in fox-news/world/world-regions/canada fox-news/world/world-regions/americas fox-news/world/crime fox news fnc/world fnc d6ba04a4-9e9d-535c-946a-5ee4e9e4397d Cristina Corbin article

PORT ALBERNI, BRITISH COLUMBIA – In the remote and rugged northern Canadian territory where two teenaged killers are believed to be hiding, threats to survival range in size from blood-sucking sandflies to man-eating grizzly bears.

York Landing, Manitoba, the area where Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, were last believed to have been spotted, is some 1,678 miles from Port Alberni, the Vancouver Island city where the men grew up together. The two are suspected in the killings of three people – including an American woman and her Australian boyfriend. Now far from home and with a trail of blood behind them, the pair could be facing a last stand in decidedly inhospitable environs.

“A family member described the teens to us as ‘skilled survivalists’ but they have no professional training that we’re aware of,” a Royal Canadian Mounted Police source told Fox News.

A law enforcement source told Fox News that authorities received a “strong” lead the pair may be in or near the tiny community, which is about 56 miles from Gillam, another town in Manitoba near the location where a vehicle that had been used by the suspects was found burned last week. The weather conditions in the region are poor at the moment, with heavy wind and rain reported.

“We believe, based on their description and behavior, that it’s them,” a law enforcement source told Fox News. Locals note the area between Gillam and York Landing is made up of dense bush, forest and swamp and the danger of an encounter with a grizzly or polar bear – equally dangerous – is real.

“Truly you wouldn’t want to stick yourself in a small town when all of Canada is looking for you,” the source said. “If they left Gillam, they’d likely head to a bigger center where they’d blend in and could find food.”

On Saturday, the RMCP and military units headed to Gillam with “specialized equipment” in a bid to hunt down the pair, who many believe set out on a twisted mission to commit “thrill killings.” More than 100 empty homes were searched in Gillam, with officers also scouring large abandoned buildings, including the Gillam-area Keewatinohk Converter Station Camp — which has more than 600 rooms, according to the RCMP.

But with no fresh sightings, it appears the duo eluded the door-to-door dragnet in Gillam and made it out to the backwoods that surrounds the town of 1,265 that sits along the Nelson River. One possibility is that they headed to York Landing, some 120 miles southwest.

A police source close to the investigation told Fox News the fugitives “may have gotten out of Gillam with someone who is not police friendly.” The source said the men may have altered their appearances and offered cash to someone to drive them elsewhere.

Chief Leroy Constant with York Factory First Nation said RCMP would be conducting a search for the pair “in our community of York Landing” after a “possible sighting” around a landfill on Sunday night.

“Everyone please remain indoors with your doors locked,” Constant said on Facebook. “And all vehicles should be parked.”

As to the motive for the killings, police are stumped.

“Was it a robbery gone bad? No one knows at this point.”

CANADA MURDER SUSPECTS MAY HAVE ELUDED COPS WITH ‘SOMEONE WHO IS NOT POLICE FRIENDLY,’ SOURCE SAYS

On Friday, police confirmed a resident of Cold Lake, Alberta, had helped the suspects get their Toyota Rav-4 unstuck from a local trail on July 21. Authorities said the suspects “continued on their way after a short, unremarkable interaction.”

McLeod and Schmegelsky are being sought in connection with the deaths of American Chynna Deese, 24, her Australian boyfriend, Lucas Fowler, 23, and, separately, Leonard Dyck, 64, of Vancouver, British Columbia.

Authorities found Deese and Fowler’s bodies July 15 along the side of the Alaska Highway near Liard Hot Springs, B.C. Both had been shot to death

McLeod and Schmegelsky have been charged with second-degree murder in the death of Dyck, whose body was discovered five days after the remains of Deese and Fowler were found.

The teens were originally considered missing but were later named as suspects in the murders on Tuesday. On Thursday, the RCMP said the suspects had been spotted in the area of Gillam, which is more than 2,000 miles from where the three victims were found.

Death toll in attack at Afghan political office rises to 20

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The death toll from an attack against the office of the Afghan president’s running mate and a former chief of the intelligence service in Kabul has climbed to at least 20 people, an official said Monday.

Interior Ministry spokesman Nasrat Rahimi said that around 50 other people were wounded in Sunday’s attack against the Green Trend party headquarters, which lasted hours and included a gun battle between the security forces and attackers holed up in the building.

Several gunmen were killed by security forces, Rahimi said.

The attackers’ potential target, vice presidential candidate and former intelligence chief Amrullah Saleh, was “evacuated from the building and moved to a safe location,” Rahimi said. Some 85 other civilians were also rescued from inside.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but both Taliban insurgents and the Islamic State group are active in the capital and have carried out attacks there in the past.

Sunday marked the first of the Afghan presidential campaign, with a vote scheduled for the end of September.

After the attack President Ashraf Ghani tweeted that Saleh was unharmed during the “complex attack” targeting the Green Trend office.

Ferdous Faramarz, the spokesman for Kabul’s police chief, said the attack started with a suicide car bomber after which other attackers entered into a building and start shooting at security forces.

The blast was large enough to be heard throughout the capital.

Possible sighting of Canada murder suspects reported in Manitoba as police swarm area

Officers were swarming a community in the Canadian province of Manitoba on Sunday after a possible sighting of the two teens suspected of at least three murders – including the killings of an American woman and her Australian boyfriend, police said.

Chief Leroy Constant with York Factory First Nation said Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) would be conducting a search for Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky “in our community of York Landing” after a “possible sighting” around a landfill on Sunday night.

About two-and-a-half hours later he added, “Police have deployed multiple resources in the area of York Landing” in an attempt to apprehend the suspects.

Constant said the suspects had not been caught and that RCMP would stay in the area with helicopters, police dogs and emergency response teams “until further notice.”

He said “heavily armored officers” were “conducting ground searches with dogs,” but helicopters and drones were limited because of heavy winds.

“Everyone please remain indoors with your doors locked. And all vehicles should be parked,” Constant advised.

RCMP confirmed its presence in the area tweeting on Sunday evening that multiple police resources were being sent to York Landing “to investigate a tip that the two suspects are possibly in, or near, the community.”

“A heavy police presence can be expected in the area,” the tweet continued.

A source close to the investigation told Fox News on Saturday that McLeod and Schmegelsky may have escaped from the Manitoba town where they were last seen “with someone who is not police friendly.”

The source added that the two may have altered their appearances and offered cash to a driver to leave the area of Gillam, a town of approximately 1,200 people in the north of the province. Gillam is about a four-hour drive from York Landing.

Earlier Sunday, Royal Canadian Mounted Police tweeted that officers had spent the day searching cottages, cabins, waterways, and along the rail line in Gillam for any signs of the suspects. They added that the search of remote areas was being conducted both on the ground and in the air.

The tweet went on to say, “The terrain is immense & varied w/lakes, ponds, muskeg etc.”

Police have been asking “anyone who may have inadvertently provided assistance to the suspects to come forward and contact police.”

The RCMP said Saturday that officers had started canvassing “every home and building in the Gilliam area.” Assets from the Canadian Armed Forces arrived in Gillam early Saturday to assist with the aerial search, officials added.

Fowl play? UK police ask ‘anyone missing 100 ducklings’ after odd roadside discovery

The baffling discovery of a large flock of ducklings on the side of the road has police in Scotland trying to quack the mystery.

“Anyone missing 100 Ducklings? Not the usual Saturday night crowd control! You never know what’s on the road,” Perth & Kinross Police reported from Perthshire.

Despite speculation on social media the flock had been dumped, officials said they did not believe there was any “fowl play,” the Dundee Courier reported.

Guthrie said they shepherded the birds into a field gateway where there was a large puddle in which they all settled down.

Cyprus police arrest British woman who lodged rape complaint, free 7 detained Israelis

A British woman has been arrested after she recanted her claim that 12 Israeli teens gang-raped her at a hotel in Cyprus, according to reports Sunday.

A police official said the seven Israelis still behind bars were released from custody Sunday, Reuters reported.

News agencies reported the 19-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of making a false allegation, the BBC reported. She’s due in court Monday.

GIRLFRIEND’S SELFIE HELPED SECURE RELEASE OF ISRAELI TEEN ACCUSED OF RAPE

“As I have argued throughout the process, there was no rape in Cyprus,” said defense attorney Nir Jeslovich who represented several of the suspects in court, according to the Jerusalem Post. “The young men who went on a vacation that became a nightmare will go home today, and everyone will return to their homes and families.”

Law enforcement in Cyprus arrested 12 Israeli teenagers on July 18 following the woman’s report of being raped by a dozen individuals at a resort popular with foreign tourists.

12 ISRAELI TEENAGERS HELD IN CYPRUS OVER ALLEGED RAPE OF BRITISH WOMAN

One law enforcement official told The Associated Press the woman voluntarily recanted during questioning just after midnight, saying there had been sexual contact with the suspects but she wasn’t raped.

The state-run Cyprus News Agency reported that the woman allegedly told investigators she filed a rape report because she was “angry and insulted” that a number of the Israelis allegedly recorded video of her having sex with some of them.

Romania’s top cop fired over bumbled response to calls for help from kidnapped girl

Romania’s top cop has been fired over his department’s bumbling response to three calls for help from a 15-year-old girl who reported being raped and kidnapped — and then was killed by her captor.

“He’s coming, he’s coming,” the teen identified as Alexandra said in one of the calls Thursday to Romania’s 911 number, according to reports.

Despite the calls, it took 19 hours for police to locate the girl. In the calls, she said she had been beaten and raped by a man who kidnapped her after offering her a ride as she was hitchhiking in the southern Romanian town of Caracal, the Associated Press reported.

Ioan Buda was fired as the country’s chief of police by the Interior Minister Nicolae Moga, BBC reported.

The news channel reported that the girl’s family blamed police for not taking the calls seriously, while police said the calls were difficult to trace.
