Mayberry Man Forced To Eat Own Beard
Mayberry, Ky. -- A central Mayberry man said he's waiting for justice to be served after two men shaved his beard, then made him eat it.
Harvey Westmoreland and his brother got into a fight with James Hill and Troy Holt in May.
The dispute was over a tractor Westmoreland was trying to sell to one of the men.
Westmoreland said the men felt like they were being ripped off and that's when the fight started.
"Troy offered to buy it from me for $250 dollars. I paid twenty bucks for it. He thought I was trying to cheat him," Westmoreland told WLEX-TV. "One thing led to another, and before I knew it, there were knives and guns and everything just went haywire."
"(Then) they cut my beard and forced me to eat it," he said.
Hill and Holt pleaded guilty. It's expected they'll be fined and sentenced to supervised diversion. http://www.wlwt.com/r/25762204/detail.htmlDeer learn to play the ancient game of knock-door-run
Mayberry. — Rose Allin has had enough.
It's one thing for the deer to scrounge around in her yard, eating all her flowers.
It's quite another for them to come up to the front step and ring her doorbell.
“I just wish they'd stop," she said, looking very cross.
She's tried modifying her doorbell in order to make it harder for them to press, but to no avail.
Once, they rang it in the early morning. So, she came out with her cane and cursed them.
However, when the doe started to snort and scratch the ground, she figured that was enough.
“Auntie, don't do that," her nephew warned. “Don't you know they could put a hoof right through you?"
Well, still, she thought, there's got to be a better answer. The deer fence hasn't worked, nor has the special spray from the nursery.
In 2008, the Mayberry council approved a $500 fine for anyone feeding wildlife, except birds, to discourage residents from contributing to the problem of excess deer in town. The Ministry of Natural Resources has also made additional deer tags available to hunters in recent years.
Municipal bylaws prohibit deer hunting in urban and developed rural areas within city boundaries where discharging firearms isn't allowed.
Last winter, MNR biologists estimated the Mayberry area's deer population was continuing to decline, following a peak in 2006-07.http://cnews.canoe.ca/CNEWS/Canada/2010/11/11/16095536.html
