Man 'shot polar bear and left its body outside his home for five months'

Man 'shot polar bear and left its body outside his home for five months'A man has been charged with killing a polar bear and leaving the body to rot outside his home in Alaska for five months.Christopher Gordon, 35, allegedly shot the animal dead when it ventured into his front yard to try and eat some butchered whale meat.He then failed to report the polar bear carcass or attempt to “harvest” it for food between December 2018 and May this year.Gordon also allowed the bear to be covered with snow, which resulted in one of its legs being ripped off by a passing snowplough.Finally, on 22 May, he burned the carcass at the village dump in Kaktovik.He is now facing up to one year in prison and a $ 100,000 (£80,000) fine if convicted of the federal crime of “knowingly taking a polar bear in a manner unlawful under the Marine Mammal Protection Act”.Prosecutors say that the killing of the bear was not done in legal self defence and that he “left the harvestable remains to waste”.“Gordon allegedly left butchered whale meat outside in front of his yard of his residence for a substantial period of time, which attracted polar bear, as well as other animals to his front yard,” said federal prosecutor Ryan Tansey.“He then allegedly shot and killed the polar bear because it was trying to eat the improperly stored whale meat.”Gordon has also been charged with the state offence of wasteful taking of a marine animal.The investigation was carried out by the US Fish and Wildlife Service.Gordon declined to comment about the case and is scheduled to appear in court in Fairbanks in August.Kaktovik, with a population of just over 250, has experienced increasing encroachment by polar bears in recent years due to the disappearing Arctic sea ice.As a result it has become a popular tourist destination, with more than 2,000 people visiting the village during 2017.“These bears are getting used to people,” said council member Mike Gallagher. ”They’re domesticated.”Additional reporting by Associated Press

Biden Brushes Off Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as Too Far Left: ‘Mainstream Democrats’ Won in the Midterms

Biden Brushes Off Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as Too Far Left: ‘Mainstream Democrats’ Won in the MidtermsFormer Vice President Joe Biden on Friday tossed some shade at leftist superstar Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) during a CNN interview, suggesting she’s not representative of the Democratic Party as a whole while claiming some progressive policy proposals can’t win in swing states.Asked by anchor Chris Cuomo about his more moderate stances on issues like health care and the economy, Biden said that while he believes health care should be available to everyone, his plan is far more “rational” than the Medicare for All proposal embraced by the left wing of the party.Cuomo then pressed the former veep on how he’ll be able to convince the party that popular progressive ideas like Medicare for All aren’t the way to go, prompting Biden to point to last year’s midterm election results, which found moderate Democrats leading the so-called Blue Wave.“That’s what this election is about,” Biden declared. “I’m happy to debate that issue, and all those issues with my friends. Because guess what? Again, look who won the races. Look who won last time out.”Biden then took direct aim at AOC, brushing off her shocking 2018 primary victory over longtime Democratic Congressman Joe Crowley.“By the way, I think Ocasio-Cortez is a brilliant, bright woman,” he said. “But she won a primary. In the general election fights, who won? Mainstream Democrats who were very progressive on social issues, and very strong on education, health care.”Biden, who boasted he is known as “Middle-Class Joe,” went on to tie his campaign directly to the middle class, claiming they are his “North Star” and that when they do well, “everybody does well.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

New White House press secretary left with bruises after scuffles between North Korean security guards and journalists

New White House press secretary left with bruises after scuffles between North Korean security guards and journalistsThe incoming White House press secretary became embroiled in a scuffle with North Korean officials during a brawl between reporters and the country’s security guards.Stephanie Grisham was left with bruises after chaotic scenes saw officials shoving and attempting to block the press.The jostling came as Donald Trump became the first sitting US president to enter North Korean soil – stepping over from the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) to shake hands with the North Korean leader.The fracas intensified as reporters tried to enter a room inside the Freedom House on the southern side of Panmunjom where Mr Trump and Kim Jong-un were meeting after exchanging initial handshakes on the border.North Korean guards tried to physically prevent members of the US press pool from entering the room, pushing and shoving, and the Secret Service stepped in to intervene.A source on the scene said Ms Grisham got in “an all out brawl” with the North Koreans, according to CNN.Ms Grisham, Melania Trump’s spokesperson who had been with the president’s campaign team since 2015, could be seen later directing reporters outside the building in which the two world leaders met.Mr Trump, who met Mr Kim in a historic meeting in Singapore last summer, walked towards Mr Kim, shook hands and greeted him, and then stepped back across a line marking the North Korean border. The DMZ is a border barrier that divides the Korean Peninsula roughly in half.The pair then walked back over into the South side, where the US president invited Mr Kim to the White House and the two leaders held a bilateral meeting.Mr Trump said: “I’ll invite him to the White House right now. A lot of really positive things are happening. Really positive.”He added: “Stepping across that line was a great honour.”The impromptu meeting was organised yesterday, both leaders said, after Mr Trump tweeted Mr Kim suggesting they meet and “say Hello(?)!” while he was in the area for the G20 summit in the Japanese city of Osaka.Mr Trump said the meeting was “very historic” and hit out at his critics who have argued that nothing has emerged from his two summits with Mr Kim. The US president was accompanied to the DMZ by South Korean leader Moon Jae-in.North Korea – known as the so-called “hermit kingdom” – is widely thought to be the most secretive and isolated regime in the world. According to the UN, the overwhelming majority of the country’s 25 million citizens endure starvation and live with the threat of forced labour camps and public execution.A landmark UN report detailed cases of “extermination, murder, enslavement, torture, imprisonment, rape, forced abortions and other sexual violence, persecution on political, religious, racial and gender grounds, the forcible transfer of populations, the enforced disappearance of persons and the inhumane act of knowingly causing prolonged starvation”.The UN estimates there to be between 80,000 and 120,000 political prisoners detained in four large political prison camps in the country.

The most experienced, best-known candidate in the campaign came under repeated assault Thursday, notably from Senator Kamala Harris on race.

Air Canada launches investigation after woman left 'all alone' in dark and empty plane after falling asleep on flight

Air Canada launches investigation after woman left 'all alone' in dark and empty plane after falling asleep on flightAir Canada has launched an investigation after a woman was left alone in a dark and locked plane after falling asleep on a flight.Tiffani Adams described waking up “all alone” on a “cold, dark” aircraft after flying from Quebec to Toronto earlier this month.“I fell asleep probably less than halfway through my short 1.5 hour flight,” she said, in a message posted on Air Canada’s Facebook page.“I wake up around midnight (few hours after flight landed) freezing cold still strapped in my seat in complete darkness (I’m talking pitch black).”Air Canada confirmed the incident took place, but declined to comment on how Ms Adams may have been overlooked as its staff disembarked.“We are still reviewing this matter so we have no additional details to share, but we have followed up with the customer and remain in contact with her,” Air Canada told the Associated Press. Ms Adams said she called a friend after waking up but her phone ran out of battery around a minute into the call and she could not recharge it because the power to the plane was off.She said: “I can’t charge my phone to call for help I’m full on panicking [because] I want off this nightmare asap.“As someone with an anxiety disorder as is I can tell you how terrifying this was,” she wrote“I think I’m having a bad dream bc like seriously how is this happening!!?”Ms Adams said she found a torch in the plane’s cockpit and eventually tried to exit the aircraft, but found herself 50ft above the ground with no way down.She said she then used her torch to send out “sos signals” but no one saw them, so she leaned out of the aircraft and called over a passing member of the ground crew, who was able to get her out.In her post, she said Air Canada personnel asked if she was OK and whether she would like a limo and hotel, but she declined the offer.She said representatives of the airline apologised and said they would investigate.“I haven’t got much sleep since the reoccurring night terrors and waking up anxious and afraid I’m alone locked up someplace dark,” she wrote.Responding to her post on Facebook, Air Canada said it was surprised to hear the story and “very concerned,” and asked Ms Adams to send a private message with her flight details.“We’ll take a look into it,” the airline wrote.
