Greetings fellow Bizarros:

After murdering a beloved family pet because it barked at them, police in Georgia order a man to saw the head off of his own dead dog in order to test for rabies.

Joe Nate Goodwin says he decapitated his 2-year-old dog at the behest of the sheriff's deputies, who had been called out to the house earlier in the day after a neighbor was bitten on the leg.

Goodwin said he wasn't home when a deputy came by the house. The dog lunged toward the deputy, who shot it dead. Goodwin's girlfriend called to tell him "Big Boy has been shot," he said. He documented much of his encounter with the police on video with his phone.

One video opens with sheriff's investigator James Hollis threatening to take Goodwin to jail. Goodwin asked what he would be charged with and the other officer responded, "you can be charged with disorderly conduct."

"I'm reacting to having to cut my dog's head off," Goodwin shouted on video.

"We asked you to remove the dog's head," Hollis said. "And you're refusing, right?"

"I ain't got a knife to cut the head off," Goodwin replied.

"If you would just listen," the other officer cut in. "We don't know this process either."

In a video taken after the decapitation, Hollis and the other officer can be heard giving instructions to Goodwin’s girlfriend, "She gonna place that into the bag and they got to freeze it," Hollis said in the video. "That can be tested for rabies, OK?"

Some of the videos were removed from Facebook due to their graphic nature.

Hollis was back at work Monday. Office staff confirmed an internal investigation into the incident was ongoing.

A skydiving Santa looking to make a grand entrance while taking an Elf on the Shelf to a 9-year-old girl crashed into a tree and light pole before hitting a Florida beach and breaking his leg. George Krokus was dressed as Santa Claus during a skydive to deliver toys to the Tampa Bay Beach Bums Operation Santa Charity Volleyball Tournament. Madison Spiers saw the crash and later found a note from the "elf" named Kristoff who visits her house during the holidays. It said, "As we were about to land, this big tree jumped right out in front of us!" The elf sported a bandaged leg while staying with the recovering Krokus.

A Kentucky teenager realized a long-held dream after he hand-built a roller coaster in his own backyard. Logan Moore, 16, said he has always been fascinated with roller coasters and wanted to build one himself. And after a year in carpentry class, he devised a plan to do so. Moore worked on his project for two months over the summer. "I mean in the summer it would be one, two, three o'clock in the morning and he would still be out here working," Moore's grandmother, Frieda Baker, said. "One thing I wanna say is, don't ever think you can't do something because I sure didn't think I could build this. But I did," he said. "I'm going to keep this for a little while and then I may do another one, may redesign this one, but I will wait on that just a little bit because it's been a lot of work," Moore said.

An Amazon driver left a deuce on the driveway. Amazon wants us to let their drivers into our homes when we're not even there. How long before Amazon Drivers enter and leave a bonus delivery? And not in the toilet?

Lewis, I would have no problem being attacked with nipples as long as they are still attached to the female. -Scott

really? the wreck occurred because she was too efficient with her job performance?

How many people had to explain the punch line to you Lewis? It was his penis in her hand.
[Would have been funnier if it had been in her mouth.]
