IDAHO TEEN SEXUALLY ASSAULTED BY A GRIZZLY BEAR WHILE DISGUISED AS A SASQUATCH FOR A HOAX VIDEO

Published

A prank attempt went terribly wrong for a 14-year old boy from Boise, as he was raped by a 700-lb grizzly bear while walking around in the woods in a sasquatch costume.

Anthony Drake and two of his friends decided to shoot a fake video of a sasquatch last weekend in an attempt to fool one of their teachers who firmly believes in the existence of the giant ape.

They created an elaborate costume from a bear pelt, a fur coat, and a few other furry accessories.

The teenage boy began walking around in the woods and behaving in an ape-like manner as his friends filmed the scene with their cell phones.

Unfortunately for the 14-year old, a grizzly bear took interest in him and approached unnoticed to assault him.

“I heard my friends scream my name and a second later this huge mountain of hair and fangs was all over me.”

Anthony first thought the animal wanted to kill him, but he rapidly understood otherwise.

“It kept dragging me towards him and scrubbing its genitals over me. It lasted ten minutes until it came all over me and left.”

Agents of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game were dispatched of the site to locate the grizzly bear, notably finding a deer head suggesting it woke from hibernation early and is looking for food.

As soon as the bear left, his friends rushed to his side to help him and called 911. He was rapidly transported to the St-Luke’s Boise Medical Center where he was treated for a state of shock.

Luckily for him, the young man suffered only from bruises, scratches, a few lacerations, and a minor concussion.

However, doctors say that he may suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome or other serious psychological consequences from this extremely painful ordeal.

Grizzly bears are usually known to avoid humans and remain in isolated and heavily forested areas, so this kind of attack is extremely rare in the United States or Canada.

Only three similar cases have been reported over the last 15 years, the last one being in Colorado in 2013, so experts believe the bear may have been fooled by the teen’s costume and confused him with another bear.

California cops’ Memorial Day tribute busted by spelling police

Published

Just throw in the “e” for effort.

A well-meaning salute to heroes by the San Jose Police Department was cited for bad spelling on Twitter, where the cops botched an operative word.

“Remembering and Honoring Our Heros,” reads a graphic celebrating Memorial Day.

Missing from the SJPD’s spelling of the word “heros” is the letter e.

Several commenters, all of whom should expect to get a ticket if pulled over for speeding in the Silicon Valley area, noted that a heros is a type of fish found in South America.

Only 10 people who’ve gotten Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine have had severe allergic reactions – and more than 4 million doses have been given out

Published

The odds of having a severe allergic reaction after receiving Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine are looking incredibly slim.

On Friday the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released its first comprehensive trove of data detailing how many people have had confirmed allergic reactions after getting Moderna’s new shot.

Among more than 4 million doses of the vaccine that were administered nationwide from December 21 to January 10, just 10 people reported confirmed cases of anaphylaxis after vaccination, which is a severe allergic reaction requiring administration of epinephrine. That rate of anaphylaxis cases is 2.5 per million.

An additional 43 vaccine-takers had less severe nonanaphylactic allergic reactions, with symptoms including itching (especially in the mouth and throat), rashes, and “sensations of throat closure.”

There have been no reports of death so far, and patients have generally recovered well after these allergic reactions, though five of the 10 severe cases had to be admitted to intensive care first. ( Pfizer’s new COVID-19 vaccine , too, has been very rarely associated with severe allergic reactions .)

All of the confirmed cases of anaphylaxis after administration of Moderna’s shot so far were in women, which isn’t a huge surprise when you consider that most of the non-elderly people who’ve been vaccinated so far are healthcare workers, an industry which is 76% female in the US.

In addition, according to CDC data, more than 2.4 million woman have gotten Moderna’s shot, compared with 1.4 million men (an additional 125,000-plus people who got Moderna shots didn’t record a sex.)

Most of the anaphylactic reactions happened within just minutes of vaccination. Only one of the ten cases took longer than 30 minutes to present, post-vaccination:

For these reasons, the CDC is recommending that all vaccine sites have doses of epinephrine on hand, and that people who get vaccinated should wait 30 minutes at the vaccine site before heading off, just in case something happens.

“It’s important that anybody who has had anaphylaxis talk to their vaccinator about that, and make sure that if they choose to be vaccinated, they wait the 30 minutes,” Dr. Thomas Clark, who’s been tracking allergic reactions after vaccination at the CDC, told reporters earlier this month .

Nine of the 10 patients who had severe, allergic reactions after Moderna’s shot had a history of allergies, and the most common allergies among them were to drugs (six patients). Just one patient with a severe reaction after vaccination had a food allergy.

“You know, many, many people with histories of allergies were vaccinated uneventfully,” Dr. Clark added.

People who do have an allergic reaction after their first shot of Moderna or Pfizer’s vaccine should not get their second dose, the CDC says.
