Diamond Dog Chows Down On $10k Worth Of Jewels
August 25, 2011

Remember Reservoir Dogs - Quentin Tarantino's film about a jewel heist gone terribly wrong? Well, in Albany, Georgia a real-life dog made off with $10,000 in diamonds. Honey Bun, the four-legged mascot of John Ross Jewelers, consumed an entire bag of loose one-carat diamonds while the store owner's back was turned. The shop owner found the empty bag and suspected Honey Bun might have been behind it - a theory that x-rays later confirmed. The diamonds eventually ... ahem ... reemerged, and are now cleaned and safe. A happy ending, and nowhere near as violent as Reservoir Dogs.

In other thieving-animal news, a patriotic squirrel in Toledo, Ohio has been stealing miniature American flags from the Toledo Police Memorial Garden. An officer snapped a pic of the thief in the act - its mouth stuffed with a tiny replica of Old Glory - but the squirrel managed to evade arrest. It was traced back to its nest, which, unsurprisingly, is adorned with further evidence of the thefts. The perp is still at large.
