A man from Silverton, Oregon was on his way to work when he says he made a disturbing discovery Friday morning, one that would absolutely shock anyone who is a lover of animals right to the core.

A kitten was apparently glued to the road, smack in the middle of a busy lane of traffic. However, this good Samaritan was not about to sit idly by and do nothing, opting instead to leap into action to try saving the kitten’s life.

This will restore some of your faith in humanity.

It was around 7 a.m. and still fairly dark outside, so at first, Chuck Hawley couldn’t tell what was in the road in front of him on Silverton Road Northeast near Cordon Road Northeast, just outside of Salem.

At first, he thought it was a small box, but as he got closer he realized it was alive – a little kitten, frightened and cold.

“When I went to pick her up, her feet were stuck to the road, and I’m like uh oh. So I start to pull her feet up – and it was like a rubber cement, so she was glued to the road.” Hawley told FOX 12. “It was all under her neck and then she had a little bit down her side, but it was mostly her tail and her feet.”

There’s no way to know how long she’d been there, but Hawley believes it’s no accident.

“We were hoping that she had just walked through glue, but it was pretty apparent that somebody had soaked her feet in glue and sort of rubbed it into the pads of her feet,” he explained.

Based on what he saw, he believes whoever did it intentionally placed her in the middle of the traffic lane.

“I think the way she was sitting someone actually went out and put her there,” he said. “Because there were no glue foot prints around, it was just a glob of glue under her, so it looked like someone just took her and put her in the road.”

He took the 5-week-old kitten to the Silver Creek Animal Clinic, where staff had to use mineral oil to get the glue out. They also found puncture wounds on her neck but aren’t sure what caused them.

Dr. Jenny Bate examined the kitten, telling local media outlets that she’d never encountered something like this before.

“I mean, what can you think when something like that happens? Your first reaction is disgust, and then what could cause a person to do something like that?” Bate said. “Somebody put that glue there, I don’t know how or why, but yeah, I mean, somebody did that.”

A full report is being made with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office in the hopes that a camera might have caught the individuals responsible for this sickening crime so that they can be brought to justice.

The good news is, the kitten is expected to make a full recovery. But that’s not all. She’s also going to be given a permanent home with Hawley.

In a world as divided as ours, a story like is desperately needed!

Harrowing Tale of Week-Long Bear Attack is a Hoax, Say Investigators

Well this is embarrassing.

It was only a few days ago that the world became familiar with a truly stupendous tale out of America’s last frontier. A man, stranded at a remote cabin in the Alaskan bush, was being haunted and hunted every night by a vicious bear, after being mauled ever so slightly on his first day on site.  His rescuers arrived after a week of these nightly attacks, and only after the stranded man was able to create a plea for help large enough to be seen by the air. The only issue with the story is that the whole thing appears to be made up, at least according to local researchers.  While the story went viral worldwide and more details came to light about the incident, some community members began to express concerns and doubt about the veracity of the tale. The cabin [Richard] Jessee took refuge in, as it turns out, was not his. It belonged to a fellow miner, though Jessee’s cabin sat only a few yards away. “We went out there to the cabin, but we couldn’t find a bear track within 500 feet of the place, but it should have been all torn up, according to his story,” said one anonymous source known to the Nugget. “There’s no hair, no tracks, no scat, nothing.” And also… The Coast Guard crew delivered him to an ambulance in Nome, which took him to Norton Sound Health Regional hospital. “We were told to get a man who had been mauled by a bear,” said Jim West Jr., the Nome Volunteer Fire and Ambulance chief. “He walked off the helicopter and walked into the ambulance. He had no animal bites and wasn’t bleeding.” Local police do admit that the area is known for its bear population, however, and the traumatized Jessee is…

USPS Delivers Defiant Message to White House Regarding Vaccine Mandate

This is a slap in the face to the Biden administration.

Published

According to the Biden administration, trouble is coming, and it will arrive in the form of another prolonged economic downturn and possible lockdowns, if we don’t somehow get this “delta” variant of COVID-19 under control. The issue, according to many medical experts, is that this mutated version of the primary coronavirus pandemic strain, is spreading too rapidly among the unvaccinated, and without a significant number of Americans suddenly deciding to get inoculated in the near future, we may not reach “herd immunity” for months. Now, in an effort to speed up the stagnating vaccination rate, President Joe Biden is set to announce that all federal workers should be vaccinated, or face a grueling COVID testing protocol that was intentionally designed to be uncomfortable. The United States Postal Service isn’t taking the news lying down, however. The influential American Postal Workers Union on Wednesday said, at this point, it opposes a coronavirus vaccine mandate from the Biden administration but encouraged workers to voluntarily take the jabs. “While the APWU leadership continues to encourage postal workers to voluntarily get vaccinated, it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent,” the union said in a statement obtained by Fox News. The union did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News. The union said in the statement that the safety of its workers is “of paramount importance” but “at this time the APWU opposes the mandating of COVID-19 vaccinations.” The Biden administration’s mandate will not be 100% iron clad according to sources familiar with the matter, but, rather, would be an incredibly strong suggestion with some terribly annoying hoops to jump through to abstain.
