SR Blogs: Explaining A Monkey Killing

“This might seem like the way to go,” headlines Paul Turner, The Slice blog, “It would allow you to quickly make your way around the grocery store, dancing past people blocking aisles with their rolling carts. But after you have selected 57 items weighing an aggregate 147 pounds, does it still seem like a good idea?” (Photo: www.raimac.com)

Featured Blog: The father of a 22-year-old man accused of killing a monkey after breaking into an Idaho zoo said he believes the tragedy was a drunken prank that got out of hand and “turned into a horrible situation,” the Idaho Statesman newspaper reports. Michael J. Watkins was arrested Monday and faces at least two felonies: burglary, for allegedly breaking into Zoo Boise; and grand theft, for allegedly taking the monkey and beating it so severely that it later died/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.
