Bear Attack

A bear killed five goats on a farm in Burlington on Sunday morning. The family that owns the farm says they have seen bears on their property before, but never had one scale the fence to get into the goat pen.

Two test dummies fell out of a New Jersey roller coaster and landed on a nearby hotel. The incident took place on April 20, but was only revealed this week.
