Now This Scary Strange...!

Sometimes the way people act just can't be explained by anyone in their right mind.

Take this guy for instance. What reason did he have for doing what he did, ya reckon? He must have had a reason...drunk, crazy, or maybe some of both. Who knows?

Naked Came The Stranger

On a Saturday in March 2016, Gail Wilson’s weekend began the way that so many do—with a strange naked man casually strolling through her front door and saying “Hi!” It ended in a similarly mundane fashion—with said naked man hanging upside down from a tree on her property, trying in vain to fight off the police.

After making his entrance, the man tried several times to hug Gail, which for some reason she wasn’t too keen on. While the man dragged Gail’s dog into another room, Gail managed to call 911, fearing the worst. Then, the man was suddenly in her backyard, poking around the shed, which was situated near a 15-meter (50 ft) cliff. When the police arrived, he took off running and scaled a fence . . . and over the cliff he went.

Police found him at the bottom in the condition described above, flailing and combative. After an hours-long rescue operation and a brief trip to the hospital, Steven Burton was booked on a litany of charges, including disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

First thing I would do if I were the lady, is to get a different dog! Then I would start locking the front door to my house, ya know? C'mon folks! Things like this are common sense, not rocket science!

Coffee out on the patio again. Nearly 80 is predicted and I'm loving it!

My, what interesting people there are in the world.

I agree with you about getting a different dog - a nice BIG one should suffice. And locking the doors even when at home is a gimme. I personally think some sort of mental illness played a part. We are finally having some warmer temps here and I am loving it.

Guess the dog didn't think he was dangerous. 911 would have been called asap. Think the guy was probably on PCP or some such.

A different dog for sure!

Hey Gorges...
How true, how true!
Thanks for stopping by today!

Hey Linda...
At the very least, get one that barks at strangers.
Warmer weather is a good thing, right?
Thanks for coming by today!

Hey Momlady...
Seems as though the dog should have raised the alarm somehow. No telling what the guy was on.
Thanks for dropping by this morning!

Hey Rob...
I agree.
Thanks for the visit this morning!

Dang, he went through all that and didn't even get a hug (grin).
