Weekends

If Tiger King has taught us anything it’s that there is a ferocious appetite for news stories about people and animals acting badly and the wild happenstance of life. In that spirit each night during the 9 and 10 o’clock hour I enjoy playing a game with you, the listener, called Florida or Australia. The rules are simple: I’ll tell you about a news story on the air and you text or call in and tell me if you think the story happened in Florida or Australia.(because those two places seem to have a high concentration of craziness.) Here are tonight’s stories:

Nabbed for street racing, Florida man blasts "Bad Boys"

MIAMI (WFLA) -- A rescue mission seven months in the making finally came to fruition Sunday when 20 golden retrievers arrived in Florida after being saved from Chinese streets and meat markets.

Vet Surgery Shares Incredible Elf On The Shelf Picture To Encourage Dog Owners To Give Pets The Snip

An Australian veterinary surgery has shared one of the most breath-taking iterations of the Elf on the Shelf meme in a bid to encourage dog owners to get their pets castrated. For anyone not up to speed, Elf on the Shelf photos involve people posing elf toys to suggest Santa's little helpers are up to no good.

Be sure to tune in Monday through Friday nights at 9 and 10pm if you want to play along.
