November 24, 2007 -- Might have been worth it to buy the dog a chew toy.

An Altoona, Pa., man may have to pay $3,100 to the city after his pooch chewed up three honey locust trees in a park.

The dog's owner, Tyler Port, said his pal Rossman had an "infatuation" with the trees.

Port said he was optimistic he could reach an agreement with the city on the compensation dispute.

A Michigan man says he shot his neighbor's pregnant cow after mistaking it for a coyote.

Authorities are skeptical, however.

"I don't know how he hit a several-thousand-pound cow mistaking it for a coyote," said Colfax Township Undersheriff Rory Heckman.

Making things even more suspicious, the gunman tried to drag the beefy corpse home.

An Italian teacher has been suspended after authorities discovered she'd been moonlighting as a porn star.

They say Anna Ciriani could not continue because her behavior was "not compatible with educational activity."

Ciriani defended her actions, saying her behavior at school "has always been professional and irreproachable."

"I am also looking for transgression and sex," she added.

We've heard of premium cookies, but this is ridiculous!

A rare 1920s cookie tin and its original contents were auctioned for $32,000 in London.

The tin went for more than five times the pre-sale estimate, Bonhams auction house said.

Experts believe the William Crawford and Sons biscuit tin, sold to an anonymous private British collector, has now become the most expensive in the world.

There's being patriotic, but this is ridiculous.

Lawmakers in Thailand are reviewing a proposed regulation that would require drivers to stop twice a day when the national anthem is played.

Its supporters say the rule would "preserve tradition and instill patriotism in Thais."

Its opponents say it would simply be "chaotic."
