Squirrel caught on tape stealing cops’ doughnut

ANCHORAGE, Alaska

Police in Anchorage, Alaska, are on the lookout for a squirrel that made off from their parking lot with a doughnut.

The department called it “a straight-up felony” and added “it’s rude.”

Moose crashes couple’s wedding in Alaska

ANCHORAGE, Alaska

An Anchorage couple was about to seal their wedding vows with a kiss when the ceremony was interrupted by a moose.

The wedding ceremony for high-school sweethearts Shandalyn and Alan Cuellar was wrapping up on the lawn of the Bayshore Clubhouse in south Anchorage when the unexpected visitor emerged from the woods the night of June 30, the Anchorage Daily News reported.

“I started hearing some rustles behind us in the woods and the trees,” Shandalyn Cuellar said.

The moose then appeared, causing wedding guests to gasp and halting the pastor’s speech.

“The moose started coming right at us,” Cuellar said.

Wedding photographer Bria Celest continued snapping photos, capturing the bride surprised by the moose marching toward the lake behind her.

The moose eventually passed by. The pastor “just reined everyone back in,” Cuellar said. “He said, ‘Let’s get this done, let’s get them married.’”

The 22-year-old bride met the 25- year-old groom when they were students at Service High School. They have been together for more than seven years.

The ceremony continued, but the animal stayed in the background. The animal lingered around the lake for the duration of the reception.

“That moose is in the background of a lot of our pictures,” Cuellar said.

House arrest? Home abandoned on Delaware road puzzles police

DOVER, Del.

Police in Delaware’s capital city would like to know who dropped a house onto a two-lane road.

The Dover Police Department says someone abandoned the prefabricated home, blocking traffic at least until June 27.

In a Facebook post that had been shared thousands of times, the department posted pictures of the home and said “this is not a joke.” The house was draped with a banner that said “oversize load.”

Police advised drivers to use an alternate route.
