A raccoon is being tested for rabies after it reportedly attacked two people, chased a group of children and charged at police in New Jersey on Thursday.

The raccoon lunged at an 82-year-old man sitting on a chair in front of his home in Maywood around 1:30 p.m. Thursday, NorthJersey.com reported Detective Sgt. Matthew Parodi with the Maywood Police Department said. The man reportedly suffered bites to his arms and legs.

Half an hour later, the raccoon chased a group of children and one adult in the backyard of a home about two miles away but did not bite anyone, Parodi said.

The raccoon then made its way to another nearby street and reportedly attacked a 72-year-old man from behind as he was doing yard work.

The 72-year-old, who had a large wound on his back, and the 82-year-old refused emergency medical attention, the website reported.

Police later found the raccoon trying to get into a window of a home, WABC-TV reported. While there, the officers reportedly used a Taser on the animal, but it had no apparent effect.

About 20 minutes later, officers were in a backyard in the area when the raccoon appeared again and was aggressive, according to the television station, which added that one officer fired three rounds at the animal but did not hit it.

Animal control eventually was able to capture the raccoon alive and it will be tested for rabies, with the results expected in four business days, Parodi said.

Maywood is a half-hour’s drive northeast of Newark.

Kansas man moves into animal shelter to help get dog adopted

A Kansas man went above and beyond to help man’s best friend — even moving into an animal shelter to comfort a dog in need of adoption.

The dog, named Queen, is a 3-year-old terrier mix available for adoption at Great Plains Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) in Merriam, Kan., Fox 4 reported.

Scott Poore, who has dedicated his life to animals through his organization “Mission Driven,” said he moved into the shelter earlier this week to stay with Queen when he heard the dog was having trouble getting adopted and seemed depressed. The animal has been living in the shelter for over 400 days.

“She is the most affectionate lovable dog I probably have ever worked with. She has tons of energy,” Poore said.

He added, “She’s just gentle. She’s loving and the last couple of months she started kind of losing hope, and that’s what motivated me to do this. I’m not going to let her lose hope.”

After seeing a change in the dog’s behavior, he decided to decorate the kennel with pictures and stuffed animals with the goal of attracting the attention of a potential adopter.

On Thursday, Poore posted an update on Mission Driven’s Facebook page, saying Queen didn’t have a single visitor, even with all the media exposure.

“Not one potential adopter has come today,” Poore said in the video update.

He reiterated that Queen is extremely affectionate and said children under eight years old would make her a little nervous.

1 dead, 1 critically injured after small plane crashes into a roof in California

One person was killed and another was critically injured after a small plane crashed into a building roof in Southern California on Thursday, officials said.

The single-engine Cessna 177, with two people aboard, crashed around noon about a mile east of the Los Angeles-area Torrance Municipal Airport, a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) spokesman said.

The plane landed on top of a building in a shopping plaza, Fox 11 reported, adding that officials with the Torrance Fire Department said the plane penetrated the roof. No injuries were reported in the building or on the ground.

“I just saw the plane looking like it was trying to get altitude,” Omid Taheri, who witnessed the crash from across the street at a car dealership, told The Daily Breeze. “Then it turned sideways and to the right and then took a nosedive straight down.”

Torrance resident Tina Schneider, who works in the building next to the crash site, also reportedly saw the plane fall. She told the newspaper she saw the plane take off, then make a U-turn.

“You could hear the plane was having problems,” Schneider said, adding that she then saw the plane hit the building.

“There was a guy, hanging upside down and dangling,” she told the paper. “He was alive, stuck in his [seatbelts].”

She said gasoline was pouring out of the plane.

“Then they cut [the man] out of his straps and pulled him to the side,” Schneider said.

The person who was killed has not yet been identified.

Michigan man went from ‘perfectly healthy to brain dead’ in 9 days after contracting rare mosquito-borne disease, report says

Westlake Legal Group Mosquito-EEE Michigan man went from ‘perfectly healthy to brain dead’ in 9 days after contracting rare mosquito-borne disease, report says Talia Kaplan fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/michigan fox-news/us fox-news/newsedge/health fox news fnc/health fnc article 6471678b-b979-5ec8-b3c6-1a1cff5610de

A man from Michigan went from “perfectly healthy to brain dead” in nine days after contracting a rare-mosquito-borne disease, according to a local report.

Gregg McChesney, 64, died last month after a “nine-day illness,” according to his obituary. McChesney, of Kalamazoo County, reportedly died from Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE). The disease is sometimes called Triple E, or sleeping sickness.

MICHIGAN WOMAN BLAMES EEE FOR FATHER’S DEATH, COULD MARK FOURTH IN US FROM RARE MOSQUITO-BORNE VIRUS

“Late July, he was here at the farm helping me put docks in at the pond,” WOOD-TV reported McChesney’s brother Mark as saying on Tuesday. “He was perfectly healthy, happy human being and within a matter of nine days he went from perfectly healthy to brain dead.”

He told the station that his brother had a seizure and “next thing you know, he’s in the ER and he just never came out of it.”

RHODE ISLAND SEES FIRST EEE DEATH SINCE 2007, OFFICIALS SAY

Several days after Gregg McChesney had died, doctors reportedly confirmed that he had the mosquito-borne illness EEE.

“Right off the bat, we were like: ‘How could this happen? What did happen?’” Mark McChesney reportedly said. “We just didn’t know and the doctors were just doing everything they could to try to say it was this or that, and they just couldn’t figure it out.”

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) tweeted on Tuesday that four additional cases of EEE have been confirmed in southwest Michigan, including two that were fatal.

“The mosquito-borne disease remains a threat that has now resulted in seven confirmed human cases of EEE in Michigan with onset dates in July,” the department said in a news release.

MASSACHUSETTS GIRL, 5, CONTRACTS DEADLY EEE VIRUS, IN CRITICAL CONDITION: REPORT

“Michigan is currently experiencing its worst Eastern equine encephalitis outbreak in more than a decade,” said Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, MDHHS chief medical executive and chief deputy for health. “The ongoing cases reported in humans and animals and the severity of this disease illustrate the importance of taking precautions against mosquito bites.”

EEE is one of the most dangerous mosquito-borne diseases in the country, with a 33 percent fatality rate in people who contract it, the news release said.

Symptoms include a sudden fever, chills and body and joint aches, which can progress to severe inflammation of the brain, resulting in headaches, disorientation, tremors, seizures and paralysis.

In some cases permanent brain damage, coma and death are the trafic outcome, according to MDHHS.

Nine cases of EEE in horses had been confirmed as well and all the animals have died, the health department said.

McChesney is survived by his wife, son and two grandchildren.

Officials in Rhode Island have confirmed three human cases of EEE this season.

The state health and environmental management departments said Tuesday that two people, a child younger than 10 years old from Coventry and an adult over 50 from Charlestown, have been discharged from the hospital and are recovering. A West Warwick resident died last week.

Communities at critical risk in Rhode Island were aerially sprayed with pesticide last week.

In neighboring Massachusetts, officials confirmed the state’s eighth human case of the virus on Friday, one of which was fatal.

Chinese woman pleads guilty in California ‘birth tourism’ scheme, prosecutors say

A Chinese woman who ran a California “birth tourism” business that charged Chinese clients tens of thousands of dollars to help them give birth in the United States has pleaded guilty to federal criminal charges, federal prosecutors announced Tuesday.

Dongyuan Li, 41, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit immigration fraud and visa fraud on Tuesday, the prosecutors said.

Li, who lived in Orange County, admitted in her plea agreement that from 2013 until March 2015, she ran a “birth tourism” business in Irvine and in China called “You Win USA Vacation Services Corp,” investigators said, adding that the business would help pregnant women, typically from China, travel to and stay in the United States to give birth.

19 CHARGED IN CHINESE ‘BIRTH TOURISM’ CRACKDOWN: US PROSECUTORS

The Orange County-based “birth tourism” business catered to wealthy pregnant clients as well as Chinese government officials and coached pregnant Chinese women on how to get into the United States to deliver babies so their children would get U.S. citizenship.

Li raked in millions through her business over the course of two years, where mothers-to-be paid between $40,000 and $80,000 each to come to California, stay in an upscale apartment and give birth, investigators said. A January 2019 federal grand jury indictment against Li said she used 20 apartments in Irvine to house pregnant clients.

“You Win” advertised that it had served more than 500 Chinese “birth tourism” customers, according to the indictment.

The company coached some customers to lie on visa applications and to U.S. immigration officials, according to Li’s plea agreement, which added that the women also learned how to trick U.S. Customs at ports of entry by hiding their pregnancies.

CHINA BANS FLYING PIGEONS, DRONES AS BEIJING PREPS FOR 70TH ANNIVERSARY MILITARY PARADE

Federal prosecutors said Li admitted clients were coached on how to pass U.S. consulate interviews in China as well, including by stating falsely that they were going to stay in the U.S. for only two weeks, when they really had planned to stay for up to three months to give birth.

This past January, federal officials charged 19 people, including Li, in the first crackdown on birth tourism businesses. Li was the first of the charged operators of birth tourism businesses to plead guilty, federal prosecutors said, adding that the rest either awaited trial or were fugitives.

While it hasn’t been illegal to visit the United States while pregnant, investigators said the businesses — which federal agents raided in 2015 — touted the benefits of having U.S.-citizen babies who could get free public education and, years later, help their parents immigrate.

Li’s attorney did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Sean Spicer debuts on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ shimmying to Spice Girls song in neon-green ruffled shirt

Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer made his colorful and proudly outlandish “Dancing With the Stars” debut on Monday night wearing a neon-green ruffled shirt as he shimmied to the Spice Girls song “Spice up Your Life” in a salsa routine.

GIFs of Spicer started circulating on social media immediately following his performance. Many people also tweeted their reactions to his bold shirt.

Spicer’s energetic performance concluded with confetti and he got a standing ovation from the audience, but the show’s judges did not seem impressed, giving him a total score of 12 out of 30.

During the “Dancing With the Stars” 2019 premiere Monday, Spicer’s dance partner, Lindsay Arnold, said his skills were “pre-preschool-level.”

SPICER HITS BACK AT CRITICS PROTESTING HIS CASTING ON ‘DANCING WITH THE STARS’

Judge Bruno Tonioli said of Spicer’s performance, “there was some element of salsa there, not always on time or on rhythm.”

Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer danced a salsa routine on his “Dancing With the Stars” debut.

He added that his hips were “set in cement,” but Spicer’s performance was “strangely entertaining.”

Judge Carrie Ann Inaba agreed with Tonioli that the performance was “strangely entertaining,” telling Spicer, “I will give you best florescent shimmy of the night.”

She added, “you were offbeat most of the dance, but you had fun.”

Spicer replied, “I did.”

Judge Len Goodman told Spicer, “you brought fun to the ballroom. Well done.”

Spicer called his coach Lindsay “patient” after his performance and said, “I had a blast doing this.”

“Every single person is going, haha, you are wearing this shirt,” Spicer said, adding that many likely thought the bright top was “payback.”

Last month, Spicer shot back at critics protesting his selection for the new season of “Dancing With the Stars.”

“I’m very comfortable with who I am,” Spicer told Mediaite after a New York Times critic and “DWTS” host Tom Bergeron pushed back on his inclusion in the show.

“I’ve never really cared what they think,” Spicer said of The Times. “I’m not going to care now.”

He told Fox News last month, “I think Tom has been a great host. And I firmly believe when the season is over he’s probably going to realize bringing a diverse group of people together, who can interact in a fun, civil and respectful way, is actually a way we can move the country forward in a positive way. And it will make this show an example of how Americans can disagree about politics and tune into good entertainment shows and keep their politics at bay.”

Spicer said he was approached about the dancing show after he left the White House in 2017, but he didn’t think the timing was right then to join the cast.

“This is an opportunity to have some fun,” Spicer told Mediaite. “I’m in this because I enjoy it.”

Father arrested after son dies in fatal fall from boat in California waters

A father was arrested after his 11-year-old son was thrown overboard from a boat in northern California and was fatally struck by the vessel, police said on Monday.

Javier A. Burillo of Belvedere, Calif., which is about 40 minutes from San Francisco, was allegedly intoxicated at the time, Tiburon Police Chief Michael Cronin said during a news conference on Monday. The well-known developer was arrested on Sunday on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter with a vessel, willful harm or injury to a child and operating a boat while under the influence, according to the Tiburon Police Department.

“It’s a traumatic event not only for the individuals, but for the community,” Cronin told reporters on Monday.

Police said Burillo’s 27-year-old son was also thrown overboard from the 33-foot craft in the San Francisco Bay near Angel Island.

Netanyahu says if reelected he’ll annex parts of Hebron in The West Bank in controversial move: reports

Israei’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday he plans to apply his nation’s sovereignty to West Bank settlements in Hebron, the largest Palestinian city, if he is reelected in Tuesday’s election.

He told Israeli Army Radio on Monday that he plans to annex “all the settlements” in the West Bank, including Hebron and Kiryat Arba, which is on the outskirts of Hebron, according to Israeli media outlets.

During the interview, he also pledged to apply Israeli sovereignty to “vital areas” outside the settlement blocs, but did not elaborate, The Times of Israel reported. He reportedly talked about the annexations happening in stages, coordinated with the Trump administration.

“I caused them [the Trump administration] to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, after that to move the embassy there, and then recognize our sovereignty over the Golan Heights,” the Israeli newspaper reported him as saying.

“And now after immense diplomatic efforts, I am laying the groundwork for applying Israeli sovereignty over the Jordan Valley as our eastern defensive wall, and after that, over all the settlements, and over other vital areas, inside the [settlement] blocs and outside the blocs. And all that, I want to do together with President Trump.”

Locked in a tight race and with legal woes hanging over him, Netanyahu, who is fighting for his political survival, made the announcement in a last-ditch effort to shore up nationalist support the day before a do-over election. Many of the right-wing voters live in settlements in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

“I intend to extend sovereignty on all the settlements and the [settlement] blocs,” including “sites that have security importance or are important to Israel’s heritage,” Netanyahu said in an interview with Army Radio.

When he was asked if that included the hundreds of Jewish people who live under heavy military guard amid tens of thousands of Palestinians in Hebron, Netanyahu responded, “Of course.”

COEXISTENCE IN A ‘DANGER’ ZONE: AN INSIDE LOOK AT ISRAELI SETTLEMENTS IN THE WEST BANK

The International spokesman for the Jewish community of Hebron, Yishai Fleisher, said Hebron is the second most historic and holy city for Jews after Jerusalem.

In response to Netanyahu’s promise to apply Israeli sovereignty in Hebron, Fleisher told Fox News, “There’s a big difference between political promises and political policy and action.”

He added, “The Jewish community of Hebron welcomes these statements and looks forward to pushing to make them a political reality and political policy.”

Hebron is home to a holy site for Jews, Christians and Muslims, as the biblical patriarchs and matriarchs are buried in the city. Hebron is a frequent flashpoint between Jewish people and Palestinians living there. More than 200,000 Palestinians live in Hebron, along with about 800 Jewish people who live on one street, which is defended by the Israeli military. Kiryat Arba, Hebron’s “sister city,” is home to about 9,000 Jews, according to Fleisher.

In the final weeks of Netanyahu’s campaign, he has been doling out hard-line promises with the apparent goal of garnering more votes and securing reelection.

After Netanyahu failed to form a coalition following April’s vote, which caused the dissolution of Israeli Parliament, Israelis will head to the polls on Tuesday for the second election this year.

Last week Netanyahu pledged to begin annexing the Jordan Valley region of the West Bank, which makes up about a quarter of the area and is the centerpiece of any future Palestinian state, if he wins national elections. The pledge sparked denunciations from world leaders.

NETANYAHU SAYS HE SOUGHT TO ANNEX JORDAN VALLEY BEFORE ELECTION BUT ISRAEL’S AG HALTED MOVE: REPORT

Following the announcement, a United Nations spokesman said the organization maintains that any Israeli move to control the Palestinian territory “would be devastating to the potential of reviving negotiations, regional peace and the very essence of a two-state solution.”

Netanyahu’s last-minute promise also sparked Arab condemnation. On Monday, the Palestinian Authority held a Cabinet meeting in Fasayil, the West Bank village near the border with Jordan, to protest Netanyahu’s announcement

“The Jordan Valley is part of Palestinian lands and any settlement or annexation is illegal,” Prime Minister Mohammed Shtayyeh said at the start of the meeting. “We will sue Israel in international courts for exploiting our land and we will continue our struggle against the occupation on the ground and in international forums.”

Netanyahu’s political rivals have dismissed his talk of annexation as an election ploy, pointing out that he hasn’t yet annexed any territory during his more than 10 years in office.

Before the elections in April, Netanyahu made a similar promise that he would apply Israeli sovereignty to parts of the West Bank if reelected. On Wednesday, Netanyahu said he had tried to annex the territory, but was shot down by Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit.

Israel captured the West Bank and East Jerusalem from Jordan in the Six-Day War of 1967.  More than 2.5 million Palestinians now live in occupied territories, in addition to nearly 700,000 Jewish people. Palestinians and the international community consider Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem illegal. Israel already annexed East Jerusalem in a move that is not internationally recognized.
