Crazy world: Meet the Siberian 'alien'...

Meet the Siberian 'alien'

It's worth a look - and nearly 1.5 million people have - but this video of what is claimed to be the body of an alien found in Siberia is said to be a fake.

The vision supposedly shows the frozen remains of a tiny alien creature discovered in the snow in the Irkutsk region of southern Siberia.

The apparent "alien discovery" has become a YouTube sensation since it appeared a few days ago.

But local reports say that police quickly put an end to the truth being out there in Siberia.

The tiny "dead alien" is just skin from chicken filled with bread, reports the website

Police questioned the men who claimed to have found the "body" and they allegedly confessed to creating it themselves.

The chief editor of the local Kabansk-Info newspaper initially thought that it was the body of an infant in the video and alerted the police.

Officers investigated and identified the alleged author.

They went to his house and asked him about the infant's body. The scared man reportedly showed a fake alien corpse. It was even painted in "alien colors". Scolding is the only possible punishment for such a stunt as it cannot be considered a crime, the report says.

Cookie the penguin is the latest Youtube video to go viral – and that’s because he is the real deal Happy Feet.

The tiny penguin has become the internet's latest star after he has a fit of high-pitched giggles when his handler tickles him at Cincinnati Zoo.

More than 594,000 viewers have watched as the little bird puts Happy Feet's Mumble to shame with a foot-tapping, wing-waving performance to be proud of.

Cookie is a Little Penguin, a breed which grows no bigger than 12 to 13 inches tall.

At the start of the clip Cookie cuts a sorry figure as he waddles awkwardly across the floor with a bandaged foot.

Despite suffering from an infection known as bumblefoot, the little bird still manages to wave his tail enthusiastically for the camera.

But he really comes into his own when his keeper puts his hand out to start tickling him.

The tiny bird flaps over with glee, and starts giggling as the handler tickles his belly.

She will never let her Kangaroo child go


For American owner Christie Carr of Broken Arrow Oklahoma, Irwin the kangaroo is not your average household pet.

He's more like a child, according to The Daily Telegraph.

With a wardrobe full of designer suits, a cupboard packed with treats and a car booster seat,

The 15-month-old red kangaroo was paralysed after suffering a broken neck and brain damage in a wildlife sanctuary accident a year ago.

Since then Ms Carr has been devoted to Irwin - named after wildlife crusader Steve Irwin - taking him everywhere she goes.

He even rides in the back of the car, watching life whiz by from a children's booster seat modified to fit his tail.

..But little Irwin's days as a resident in Oklahoma, could be numbered. The city council last month deemed Irwin to be an exotic pet that Ms Carr was not allowed to keep.

The 39-year-old said yesterday her beloved boy would die if taken from her care and has vowed to uproot her life and move away, just to keep Irwin in her possession.

Among their outings, the pair regularly visit people in nursing homes.

However, wildlife experts said dressing a paralysed animal and treating it like a human was "totally inappropriate".

Australian Reptile Park macropod expert Tim Faulkner said Irwin's quality of life needed to be the No. 1 priority.

Broken Arrow City Council is due to debate the issue today.

They rob the dead


Even the dead, it seems, are not left in peace. This was the case after a grave site at a cemetery in Sungai Chua in Malaysia here fell prey to thieves who looted the coffin of its valuables yesterday.

According to Asiaone website it was learnt that the cemetery caretaker discovered the grave had been dug open when he arrived at the site at 8am.

The coffin was open and ransacked but the thieves had not disturbed the body of a 62-year-old man who had died of cancer on April 6 and was buried two days later.

The caretaker then informed the man's family and found the valuables missing.

7 real dwarfs cut from Snow White show


Seven real dwarfs are being axed from a Snow White panto and replaced by children - to cut costs, according to The Sun.

Theatre bosses will save £40,000 by using kids in masks instead of proper little people.

They say they cannot afford to pay dwarf actors their going rate of £600 to £850 a week because of "testing economic times".

The decision has angered performers and panto fans.

Peter Burroughs, who runs an agency for dwarf actors, said: "It's not fair. The panto will lose its magic. It's traditional to have dwarfs - the clue is in the name of the show.
