8-Year-Old Accused Of Stealing Christmas Presents

Happy Holidays!
The Frisky is here for you for this holiday season. Need gift ideas? Moral support? Read More »

When several packages containing Christmas presents went missing from the doorsteps of a subdivision in Clermont, Florida, some of the residents decided to do something about it. Two neighbors conspired with a hidden camera and some decoy boxes and caught the culprit on camera — an 8-year-old girl. But before you feel sorry for her, you should know that she first denied stealing, then admitted that she’d done it on a dare. I might have been on her team if she was deprived of Christmas presents and that caused her to steal out of desperation, not that it’s the right thing to do. But a dare? She deserves a lump of coal from Santa this year. [UPI]

Worst Nightmare: Toddler Hides Eggs In His Closet; Hatches 7 Deadly Snakes

Boy Steals Parents' Life Savings...
...and uses it to buy candy. Read More »

Kyle Cummings, a three-year-old boy from Queensland, Australia, was delighted to find a pile of eggs in his backyard, so he did what any toddler would do: he scooped them up and stashed them in his closet. Three days later, his mother discovered the not-so-delightful result of her son’s curiosity, when seven eastern brown snakes–the second most venomous snake in the world–came slithering out. Luckily the newborn snakes were not big enough to inflict dangerous bites (the amount of venom in one bite from an adult brown snake is enough to kill 20 people), and a wildlife group was able to capture the snakes and release them back into the wild. In the understatement of the year, Kyle’s mother, Donna Sims describes her reaction to finding a deadly snake nest in her home: ”I was pretty shocked, particularly because I don’t like snakes.” Shudder.
