Cattle transport comes under fire

Cattle transport comes under fire

Animal rights activists are calling for a ban on animal exporting after nearly 4,000 cattle bound for Russian farms were trapped in what critics are calling a ‘torture chamber.’

An international trip led to the deaths of hundreds of cattle after they were loaded on a freighter ship to sail across the ocean. Many of the cows ended up lying in several inches of filth next to empty feed and water containers.

Shocking New Binge Drinking Trend?

Shocking New Binge Drinking Trend?

The latest alleged craze on at least one college campus is...enemas? But this isn't the clinically invasive medical procedure of yore. Nor is it the new age version advocated by cleanse-obsessed health nuts. As with most things college-related, these enemas involve alcohol. And lots of it.

University of Tennessee fraternity member Alexander P. Broughton was rushed to the hospital with a blood-alcohol content of over 0.40%. According to police, authorities believe Broughton and others had used rubber tubing to funnel alcohol into their bodies through their rectums. Broughton has made a full recovery, but could this practice be as dangerous as it is absurd? Jane Velez-Mitchell and a panel of experts investigate.

Mayra Rosales confessed to accidentally crushing her 2-year-old nephew Eliseo.

Is half-ton woman too fat to be a killer?

TLC's latest documentary is decidedly darker than Honey Boo Boo. Their upcoming "Half-Ton Killer" follows the story of Mayra Rosales, the 1,100-pound woman at the center of a devastating family tragedy. Mayra confessed to accidentally crushing her 2-year-old nephew Eliseo. But investigators determined that she was too physically limited to have fallen on the boy, and they believe he died from head trauma.

In a shocking twist, Mayra changed her story, claiming she was taking the fall for her sister Jaime, who beat Eliseo to death. Jaime is currently serving 15 years behind bars after pleading guilty to causing injury to a child.
