Police rescue woman, child from German pig swarm

August 5, 2011BERLIN —Police in northern Germany say they rescued a woman and her 2-year-old child whose car was swarmed — by a herd of pigs. Police said the woman called them Friday afternoon from outside the tiny village of Wanderup, near the Danish border. She said “20 relatively large hip-high pigs” had surrounded her VW Golf after she had driven off the road into a field. She told them they had formed such a tight circle and were behaving so aggressively that she couldn’t flee the car. Police say they were able to free the woman and her child without incident. –The Star

    Eze 5:17 So will I send upon you famine and evil beasts, and they shall bereave thee; and pestilence and blood shall pass through thee; and I will bring the sword upon thee. I the LORD have spoken it.
    Eze 8:10 So I went in and saw; and behold every form of creeping things, and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, pourtrayed upon the wall round about.
    Eze 14:15 If I cause noisome beasts to pass through the land, and they spoil it, so that it be desolate, that no man may pass through because of the beasts:

    Effects of solar flares arriving on Earth
    WASHINGTON — The impact of a series of eruptions on the sun began arriving at Earth on Friday and could affect some communications for a day or so.

    Operators of electrical grids are working to avoid outages, but the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says some satellite communications and Global Positioning Systems could face problems.

    Three solar flares erupted on the sun starting Tuesday, and the strongest electromagnetic shocks were being felt Friday by the ACE spacecraft, a satellite that measures radiation bursts a few minutes before they strike Earth, said Joseph Kunches, a scientist at NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center in Colorado.

    Tom Bogdan, director of the center, said the sun is going from a quiet period into a busier cycle for solar flares and an increase in the number of such blasts is expected over the next three to five years.

    Solar flares send out bursts of electromagnetic energy that strike the Earth’s magnetic field. The most common impacts for the average person are the glowing auroras around the north and south poles, and the researchers said those could be visible this weekend.

    The magnetic blasts, which Bogdan likened to a tsunami in space, can also affect electronic communications and electrical systems. A 1989 solar flare knocked out the electrical systems in Quebec, Canada, but the current solar storm is not expected to be that powerful. On a scale of 1 to 5, he said, it is probably a 2 or 3.

    But more significant solar storms are expected in the next few years, he said.

    The most powerful known solar storm occurred in 1859, Bogdan said. There were not as many vulnerable electrical items then, but it did knock out telegraph services, even burning down some telegraph stations, he said.

    Other serious solar blasts occurred in 1921 and 1940, he noted, and Kunches recalled one on Halloween in 2003.

    That is scary.

    Most grazing animals like cows/horses, even geese, will gather around vehicles/trucks be it thru curiosity/territorial inclinations, the farmer may have fed his pigs from the boot of his VW Golf a one stage!! This could be classed as humorous, to a farmer, even though a large herd (if thats the correct collective noun) of squealing pigs would be quite scary to a non farming person, I know of people who are terrified of a ‘gaggle’ of geese, even nesting birds will attack cyclists and passing cars, the police ‘freed the women and child without incident’ should explain that saving her bacon was no dama.

    Footnote….collective noun for pigs, you guessed it, Mob, that explains eveything.

  6. RainMan says:

    jon, are you for real?

  7. Luca says:

    It’s kinda obvious Jon is for real. If he wasn’t he wouldn’t have posted it.

    Exactly Rainman – PERSPECTIVE PEOPLE!!! the least of our worries are animals – pigs, wolves etc behaving naturally. What animal causes the most destruction and aggression of all ???

  9. RainMan says:

    I think Jon’s response is scary Luca, not the squealing Porky’s. With respect to Jon’s beliefs.
    Kiwiprep, no prizes this time, we all know the answer, throw greed, power and ignorance in as well. (why is it always MANkind’s fault, lets be fair, women can take 50%)
