Charlie’s Angels actress and Bond girl, Tanya Roberts, has died on Sunday at the age of 65. TMZ reports that Tanya collapsed on returning from walking her dogs on Christmas Eve. She was rushed to a hospital where she was placed on a ventilator before she died. The cause of her death has not been revealed, however, it is said to be non-COVID-19 related. “I’m devastated. She was brilliant and beautiful and I feel like a light has been taken away. To say she was an angel would be at the top of the list. She was the sweetest person you’d ever meet and had a huge heart. She loved her fans, and I don’t think she realized how much she meant to them,” her longtime friend Mike Pingel told The Hollywood Reporter.

Animal Lover Lives With 480 Cats & 12 Dogs; Spends $8000 Monthly On Them In Oman

Maryam al-Balushi, an animal lover from Muscat, in Oman, shares her house with 480 cats, most of which were strays, and 12 dogs, spending almost $8,000 a month on food and vet bills for them. The 51-year-old retired civil servant might seem like a life-long animal lover, but the truth is she hasn’t always been fond of them. It all started in 2008, when her son brought home a small Persian cat as a pet, which al-Balushi wasn’t at all thrilled about, especially since her son didn’t really take care of it. As time went by, Maryam started getting used to her feline pet, and eventually they became inseparable. In 2011, Maryam al-Balushi went through a severe depression, and she credits her first cat for helping her through that difficult period. In the years th[b]at followed, she dedi...

Boxes Filled With 5,000 Dead Dogs, Cats, Rabbits Found At Courier Depot In China

At least 5,000 pets have been found dead in cardboard boxes at a shipping facility in China after being dumped there for nearly a week. The animals, including rabbits, cats, dogs and guinea pigs, had been held in plastic or metal cages wrapped in boxes at the depot in Luohe, Henan province. Sister Hua, founder of animal welfare group Utopia, said the entire place "reeked of rotting bodies" when her team arrived to rescue the animals earlier this week. Hua and her 20 volunteers managed to save 870 rabbits, 99 hamsters, 70 dogs and 28 cats, but thousands had already perished by the time the team arrived at the Dongxing Logistics hub. "It was like a living hell," she told CBS News. "It was obvious they died of suffocation, dehydration and starvation." She said the site was "c...

Woman Mauled To Death By Her Pitbulls

As was her habit, 22-year-old Bethany Stephens took her dogs for a walk in the woods near her childhood home in Goochland, Va., about 30 miles outside Richmond. But when she did not return home by Thursday night, her father grew concerned and called police, who made a terrible discovery. Stephens had been attacked and killed by her own dogs, police say. Stephens "had defensive wounds on her hands and arms trying to keep the dogs away from her, which would be consistent with being attacked while she was still alive," said Goochland County Sheriff Jim Agnew at a press conference on Friday. Stephens was being "for lack of a better term — guarded by by two very large brindle-colored pit bull dogs, who were very reluctant to be caught," Agnew said. The sheriff himself seemed shaken rec...

US Judge Finalises Depp-Heard Divorce

A judge ended Johnny Depp and Amber Heard's marriage on Friday after months of bickering over the final terms of their break up. The judgment keeps in place many of the key terms the actors agreed to in August, when they announced a settlement in their divorce, a day before a restraining order hearing that would have focused on Heard's allegations that Depp was physically abusive toward her. Depp denied he physically abused Heard and police who responded to their apartment in May after a fight between the couple said they found no evidence of a crime. Their agreement called for Depp to pay Heard $US7 million, which she has pledged to a pair of charities. Lawyers for the actors have squabbled over whether Depp can make the payments directly to the charities and other detai...
