Expert Blames Jennifer Lopez And Marc Anthony in Dog Attack

jlo

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are in the doghouse. The power couple were sued in 2008 by flight attendant Lisa Wilson, who alleges that their military-trained German shepherd, Floyd, attacked her, causing her to fall and suffer a back injury so severe she can no longer work. Dr. Karen Overall, an animal-behavior expert consulted by Wilson’s team, wrote in a court document obtained by the New York Daily News that Lopez and Anthony knew beforehand that Floyd was a dangerous dog.

According to the Daily News, Overall wrote that “it is clear to me that Floyd, Mr. Anthony’s personal protection dog, behaved inappropriately, aggressively and in a manner that consistently endangered humans.” Overall works at the Center for Neurobiology and Behavior at the University of Pennsylvania.
The incident occurred in 2006 aboard a private flight on a Gulfstream IV jet. Wilson had been instructed by Anthony not to make eye contact with the dog or to call it by name. Overall wrote that sharp objects were known to provoke Floyd, and Wilson was carrying silverware when she walked past the dog 90 minutes into the flight.

The newspaper reports that Lopez and Anthony’s legal team, meanwhile, will be consulting its own animal behavior expert for a second opinion on the dog.

Reps for the couple would not comment on the matter.

John Biscoe, of GMA Freight, said: “We opened this container that had just arrived from Egypt to ensure that it was all in order and I was with the forklift operator and became aware there was something in there. “It was a container with wire coils and I said there was a cat in there.”The other chap wondered if it was a lion or something but then this little thing jumped out and started rubbing around my legs.”

How To Get Rid Of Cat Fleas

2

Fleas are a nuisance, but that’s not the only reason to take a flea infestation seriously: Fleas can transmit diseases and even cause tapeworms.Getting rid of your cat’s fleas means more than just getting rid of the fleas on your cat. You need to treat your cat’s interior surroundings (i.e. your home’s surfaces, nooks and crannies) and then you need to treat the source, which usually means your home’s surrounding yard.On your cat: Using a fine-toothed flea comb, give your cat a long and thorough brushing. In between strokes, dip the comb in a bowl of soapy water to kill the fleas and eggs. Keep combing until you’re no longer collecting any fleas or eggs. Shampoo your cat in warm water using any shampoo, whether or not it’s specially designed for flea control. Soap alone works as a highly effective flea insecticide.
