Greetings fellow Bizarros:

A Colorado sheriff's deputy called to help wrangle a loose horse climbed onto the panicking equine's back and rode the animal back to its home.

The Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office said Deputy Ian Sebold was among those who responded to a call about a loose horse wandering through busy roads in Centennial.

The sheriff's office said that the horse "tried to make a clean getaway but Deputy Sebold was much too quick."

Sebold said the horse was panicking when he arrived on the scene.

"I saw the horse crossing the road, and it's a four-lane major roadway. I could tell he was terrified," Sebold said. "A citizen was walking nearby, trying to stop traffic to allow him to get across.

"You could see in his face, he didn't know what to do on a major roadway. He just wanted to go home, but didn't know how to get there."

Sebold and other deputies were able to corner the horse in an apartment complex parking lot.

"With no trailer to take him home, the simplest idea was to ride him back," Sebold said. "There was no saddle, no halter, but I got a boost -- old school way -- and hopped on.

"To me, the biggest question was how to get this horse safely out of a major residential area. We were not walking those 2.6 miles."

Other deputies provided an escort with their vehicles to allow Sebold to safely ride the horse back to its home.

Bizarrely,
Lewis

Man had cockroach trapped in ear for 3 days

A New Zealand man who initially thought he had water trapped in his ear said the true cause of the blockage turned out to be something far more shocking -- a live cockroach. Zane Wedding, 40, of Auckland, said he went swimming at a local pool and later felt the sensation of blockage in his ear. "I used some drops to clear it up and fell asleep on the couch later that night," Wedding said. He said his ear still felt blocked the next day, so he went to see a doctor, who advised him to try using a hairdryer to dry up the water inside his ear canal. Wedding said the feeling persisted, so he went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist. He said the doctor expressed shock immediately upon looking inside his ear. "She said: 'I think you have an insect in your ear.'" Wedding said it took the doctor about five minutes to extract the cockroach. Wedding said there was "instant relief" when the insect came out.

She says wearing pink every day makes her 'feel fantastic', and the next logical step for Kitten was to make her love for pink official - by putting a ring on it.

The bridesmen all wore pink suits and sprinkled pink petals on the ground.
