Authorities in a rural Idaho county are working to determine who is behind a plague of dead dogs that has struck the area, many of them apparently killed deliberately. Since November, about 30 dogs have gone missing from the Twin Falls and Jerome County region, about 125 miles southeast of Boise. This week, four dogs that had been beaten and shot in the head were found dumped off the side of a roadway south of Twin Falls, officials with the Twin Falls County Sheriff's Office told Reuters . “We didn't know until today how they had died: poisoned or shot or what,” Deputy Gary Trostel said about the four German shepherd mixes.

At least 2,000 mallard ducks have died within a few days in a remote area of southern Idaho, a development that confounded state wildlife officials Wednesday. Only mallards are affected -- not other duck species or crows, eagles, magpies or geese. "Quite honestly, we don't know what's going on," said Dave Parrish, regional supervisor for the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. "It's a small, localized area -- we've never seen anything like this before."

An Alaska father was watching his son drive around on a snowmobile when it happened, officials said: The boy was there, and then he wasn't.  Sjohn Brown, 9, of Fairbanks, disappeared Saturday afternoon and was presumed dead when he and his snowmobile fell into a crevasse some 200 feet deep. Officials said the accident happened about five miles northwest of the state's annual Arctic Man skiing and snowmobile event at Summit Lake. After the father saw Sjohn's snowmobile drive behind a small mound and not reappear, officials said, he went to investigate.

Wouldn't you know it. Just when all the neighbors are over and the party favors have been passed out, along comes Allan Hancock, dribbling as usual, to shock the guests and spoil the fun. Hancock isn't an embarrassing relative, it's a junior college basketball team. But after dodging the favorite sons, pushing around three weak sisters, and walking away with the championship of the first Ventura College Tournament last weekend, Hancock shouldn't expect a warm handshake from the host.
