A WHOLE KITTEN CAR-BOODLE
Service technicians at Lakeland Hyundai automotive dealership noticed something unexpected in an otherwise routine oil change–a kitten’s paw stuck in the engine. Kianna Daniels, service advisor with the dealership, estimated that the kitten had been in the car for approximately 20 minutes–since the customers lived out of town. Since its vet appointment, Ryan Monczunski, sales manager with Lakeland Hyundai, has reported that the kitten has since been adopted by a service advisor and reminds customers to check their vehicles for small animals as the weather continues to move into fall temperatures.
Early October, Ontario Provincial police responded to reports of a commercial motor vehicle that had rolled over on the 400-series highway just south of Aurora, Ontario. The commercial transport truck spilled thousands of celery stalks onto the road obstructing traffic. No injuries were reported and officers on scene directed the clean-up of the celery. Drivers heading to or past Aurora may not have made it to work on time due to road delays, but they certainly had ample opportunity to get their greens.
PET-AL TO THE METAL
Police in Slovakia fined a driver after a speed camera appeared to show a dog behind the wheel. The vehicle in question was traveling 11 km over the speed limit in Šterusy, a village in Western Slovakia. A 31-year-old man, who was actually driving the vehicle, claimed that his dog had suddenly leapt onto his lap, according to police reports. However, officers said that there had been no sudden movements in the car to indicate the dog had suddenly jumped into the driver’s seat, and so they fined the driver for violating traffic regulations. The amount of the fine was not stated by police.
