PHARMACIES selling mobility aids will be intrigued at the story of a Newcastle man who is expecting to be charged after police caught him towing a boat using his mobility scooter.
Channel Nine reported the case of Shane Swanscott, who finished repairing his boat around the same time as he lost his licence.
The creative character has been getting around town with his partner on a $400 mobility scooter, and managed to rig it up to tow his tinny when he wanted to go fishing recently (pictured).
Unfortunately a highway patrol vehicle spotted him while waiting at a red light, with Swanscott now awaiting a fine in the post. THE owner of a disobedient dog in the USA has issued a public warning urging patrons of a nearby McDonald’s eatery not to feed the animal hamburgers.
Clearly unaware of the potential impacts of eating lots of fast food, the contrary canine has apparently been sneaking out at night and loitering in the restaurant carpark in the hope someone will give it a feed.
Betsy Reyes of Oklahoma City has released photographic evidence of the perverse pup pleading for leftover fries or nuggets, along with a Facebook post urging: “If you see my dog at the McDonald’s on Shields Street, quit feeding her fat ass”.
