(KSL Staff) PET STRESS

A new stress relief product has found its way onto our Cutting Room Floor... because it's for pets.

A Japanese company has developed a paw patch that can tell if your dog or cat is wound too tightly.

They say the pin-sized patch, attached to the center of the paw... detects excessive sweat secretion, which is believed to be a sign of stress.

It changes color depending on how sweaty the pet is.

These are two pets... not necessarily requiring the patch... they don't look stressed at all.

ELEPHANT STAMPEDE

Talk about stressed out pets... a pair of elephants went on a rampage during a parade in India.

Apparently the loud drums and mouth organs, plus the tens of thousands of people... spooked the giant pachyderms.

Six people were hurt... in the mad scramble to get away.

NOAH'S ARK

A man in Europe had a dream that the Netherlands were going to flood so he took a page out of Noah's book and built himself an ark.

In fact it's an exact replica of Noah's vessel... as close as you can get without any pictures.

The boat is complete with stuffed animals.

But, while the replica ark is built according to the Biblical specifications... this one is much smaller.

This fully functional ark is the length of two-thirds of a football field and is as tall as a three story house.

The real ark described in the bible was five times larger than this replica.

It took the man two years to build.

LOVE THIEF

A California man is in custody for allegedly stealing 26 cars.

His reason? To go see his girlfriend.

Antonio Moreno apparently didn't have a driver's license or his own car.

Police say Moreno's been stealing Toyota Camrys and Nissan Sentras by using a simple device that starts older Japanese cars.

If only he'd known... it wasn't worth it.

His girlfriend's been trying to dump him.

SCOTTY'S ASHES

Star Trek's Scotty was beamed up one last time.

The cremated remains of actor James Doohan went into suborbital space aboard a rocket launched from the southern New Mexico desert.

Doohan won't be alone on the final frontier.

The ashes of Apollo 7 astronaut Gordon Copper and about 200 others are also on board along with a C-D with more than 11 thousand condolences and fan notes.

Doohan died in July 2005.
