News That Sounds Like a Joke

Around Corsham, Wiltshire, England, people, sheep -- even a former police German shepherd -- are being terrorized by two aggressive canines, Metro News reported.

"There were two unpleasant Chihuahuas who attacked the German shepherd, so the size of a dog is no reflection on their aggressiveness," said councillor Ruth Hopkinson. "They weren't leashed, and the owner thought, 'They're only little, they're only friendly.' But you have to be really careful."

One resident described the Chihuahuas as "bloody Mexican hooligans," and Hopkinson warned that the little dogs are causing havoc during a sensitive time of year: "If in a lambing field, please keep to the paths and your dog on a leash. When they're spooked, the ewe and lamb can become separated and (because they're not very bright creatures) they can't find each other, and it is leading to lamb deaths. The dogs may just be 'playing,' but that's not how the sheep see it." [Metro News, 3/25/2022] =
