    Jail let mentally disabled man starve to death, lawsuit says

    Shark bites woman’s arm in Boca Raton and won’t let go

    This is the story of a shark who became quite attached to a woman’s arm. It just wouldn’t let go – not when she ran out of the water, not when a beachgoer rushed to help her and killed it, not when the woman was loaded on a stretcher with a splint board supporting her arm. The incident happened at a Boca Raton beach on Sunday. The good news is the 23-year-old woman’s fine. And, it was a nurse shark […]

  • The discovery of stone tools alongside mastodon bones in a Florida river shows that humans settled the southeastern United States as much as 1,500 years earlier than scientists previously believed, according to a research team led by a Florida State University professor.

    Mastodon bones offer clues of earliest humans in North America

    It’s a discovery likely to rewrite the story of southeastern United States. Stone tools and mastodon bones found at the bottom of a Florida river point to humans living in the region 14,550 years ago. That’s more than 1,500 years earlier than previously believed, scientists say. “This is a big deal,” said Jessi Halligan, one of the study’s authors and an assistant professor of anthropology at Florida State University. “There were people here. So how did they live? This has […]

He had every opportunity to run, but he didn’t,” Donya Deluca told WFLA. She thinks the dog was protecting Molly, keeping […]

  • Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission officers had to do some investigating to figure why a gator foot was hanging out of a truck dashboard.

    Driver stopped with alligator foot sticking out of dashboard

    It doesn’t get much more ‘Florida’ than this. During a recent traffic stop in Loxahatchee, Florida, fish and wildlife officers found an alligator foot sticking out of the ashtray of a truck. Officers had stopped the truck in the Corbett Wildlife Management Area – a swampy expanse northwest of West Palm Beach – to check the driver’s day pass. Instead, they found a scene out of the horror movie ‘Jeepers Creepers.’ Alligator parts were scattered around the cab of the […]
