Dog feared to have cancer had actually eaten four teddy bears… but vet didn't realise until midway through operation 

Dog feared to have cancer had actually eaten four teddy bears... but vet didn't realise until midway through operation A dog feared to cancer had actually eaten four teddy bears, but the vet did not realise until halfway through the operation. Eight-year-old St Bernard Maisy was taken for a CT scan after she was taken ill, which showed a mass on her spleen and an unusually full stomach, seemingly showing she had not digested her food properly. Her owner, Jane Dickinson, from Dewsbury in West Yorkshire, feared the worst as she took her pet to Paragon Veterinary Referrals in Wakefield. It would not be unusual for Maisy, an elderly dog, to have cancer at her advanced age. However, vet surgeon Nick Blackburn ruled out any fatal disease when he carried out the operation to remove Maisy’s spleen and found her stomach was full of soft toys. Maisy is now reportedly 'loving life' Credit:  Paragon Vet Referrals / SWNS.com He said : "It's fair to say this was not something we were expecting to find! We all know certain dogs enjoy chewing things they shouldn't but managing to devour four full teddy bears is quite a feat. "I know Jane was worried about Maisy as she is quite old for a St Bernard, so we were naturally delighted the operation was such a success and we were able to return a happy, healthy dog to the Dickinsons.” Her owner said she had never seen the gentle giant chewing or eating toys, but that now the operation has been completed Maisy is “loving life”.

Credit: Paragon Vet Referrals / SWNS.com Ms Dickinson explained: "When Maisy went in I did think 'is she coming out?' but she is loving life now – it's like she's got her youth back. "The toys weren't even hers! She will steal the chihuahuas' toys and play with them but I've never seen her trying to chew them. Her eating habits had been completely normal. "I didn't even recognise one of the toys – my brother also keeps chihuahuas and it turns out it belonged to his dog." Maisy has since made a full recovery from her operation and a histology report has shown no signs of cancer.

Taiwan earthquake: Buildings tilt on sides after at least four killed and scores missing amid rescue operation

Taiwan earthquake: Buildings tilt on sides after at least four killed and scores missing amid rescue operationRescue workers scrambled to search for survivors in buildings left tilting precariously on their foundations in Taiwan, after a 6.4-magnitude earthquake killed at least four people and injured more than 200. Scores more people were trapped and others missing after the tremor shook the city of Hualien on the east coast, while a series of aftershocks were felt throughout the night.  At least six tall buildings were left tilting on their sides. The worst-hit and was propped up with cranes as it lent at about 45 degrees. Authorities said they could not verify how many residents were still missing after the quake, which hit the popular tourist port city late on Tuesday. Early on Wednesday, rescue efforts were focused on the Yun Tsui residential building, which also housed a restaurant, shops and a hostel.  At least six tall buildings were left tilting on their sides after the 6.4-magnitude earthquake struck Credit: REUTERS and PAUL YANG/AFP/Getty The quake left the 12-storey building leaning to one side, its lower floors pancaked. The national fire agency said 143 residents from the building remained missing. But it was not immediately clear if those unaccounted for were trapped inside the building. Rescue and emergency workers block off a street in Hualien where a building was left tilting precariously One local who lives nearby told how he watched the tower block partially collapse. "I saw the first floor sink into the ground," said 35-year-old Lu Chih-son, who saw 20 people rescued from the building. "Then it sunk and tilted further and the fourth floor became the first floor. "My family were unhurt, but a neighbour was injured in their head and is bleeding. We dare not go back home now. There are many aftershocks and we are worried the house is damaged."

"My bed turned completely vertical, I was sleeping and suddenly I was standing," he said. He said he managed to crawl his way to a balcony to wait for rescue, adding that the quake was the strongest he had felt in more than five decades of living in Hualien.

"Now is the prime time for our rescue efforts, our first priority is to save people," she said in a Facebook post.

Five more buildings including a hospital and a hotel were also damaged in the city, where roads were ripped apart and strewn with rubble. The national fire agency said four people had been killed across the city, with 225 others injured. More than 117 people had been rescued from damaged buildings on Wednesday morning.

Frequent aftershocks left some residents stranded in the open as they feared going back into buildings.  Authorities said 830 people were in shelters on Wednesday morning and some 1,900 houses were without power.

"The lower floors sunk into the ground and I saw panicked tourists being rescued from the hotel," said witness Blue Hsu. Graphic: Taiwan earthquake shake intensity Earthquake is two years after tremor that killed 100 The earthquake hit at just before midnight (3.50pm GMT) around 13 miles (21 kilometres) northeast of Hualien, according to the United States Geological Survey. It followed almost 100 smaller tremors to have hit the area in the last three days and comes exactly two years since a quake of the same magnitude struck the southern Taiwanese city of Tainan, killing more than 100 people.

It was the only high-rise in Tainan to crumble completely in the quake, which came two days before Lunar New Year, when many people were visiting relatives for the biggest celebration of the Chinese calendar. How to | Stay safe in an earthquake The safety of the building was called into question immediately after the disaster, when metal cans and foam were found to have been used as fillers in the concrete and residents said there had been cracks in the structure. Five people were found guilty and sentenced to five years imprisonment over the disaster, including the developer and two architects, with prosecutors saying they "cut corners" that affected the building's structural integrity. Why Taiwan is regularly hit by big earthquakes Taiwan lies near the junction of two tectonic plates and is regularly hit by earthquakes. The island's worst tremor in recent decades was a 7.6 magnitude quake in September 1999 that killed around 2,400 people.

NASA's Operation IceBridge studies ice loss in Antarctica

NASA's Operation IceBridge studies ice loss in AntarcticaNASA’s Operation IceBridge has been studying how polar ice has evolved over the past nine years and is currently flying a series of nine-hour research flights over West Antarctica to monitor ice loss aboard a retrofitted 1966 Lockheed P-3 aircraft. According to NASA, the current mission targets “sea ice in the Bellingshausen and Weddell seas and glaciers in the Antarctic Peninsula and along the English and Bryan Coasts.” Researchers have used the IceBridge data to observe that the West Antarctic Ice Sheet may be in a state of irreversible decline, directly contributing to rising sea levels.
