A giraffe being driven down a highway in South Africa died on Thursday after its head collided with a low bridge. Witnesses described the horrific scene and posted pictures of the giraffe taken just before the accident to Twitter.
Amid reports of a vandalized hot tub cover and a stolen snowboard, one item on the sleepy police blotter for the ski resort town of Steamboat Springs, Colorado, stood out for being the most exciting incident to occur within city limits in some time:
Neverland giraffes Rambo and Jabbar Jr. were discovered dead yesterday in Arizona's Bonjoko Wildlife Preserve, where staff suspect "foul play"; control of the beasts' $100,000 emergency fund had recently sparked a legal battle. Necropsies are under way. [TMZ Pictured:Jabbar]
