Trump Wastes No Time Fundraising Off Mar-a-Lago Raid.
Former President Donald Trump’s campaign wants to cash in on his Florida residence being raided by FBI agents. “My home, Mar-a-Lago, was raided by the FBI,” an early Wednesday morning fundraising email stated. “These are dark times for our Nation,” the message continued. “WITCH HUNT,” another email sent out by Trump’s Save America PAC declared, while soliciting donations. “This is political targeting at the highest level.” The former president has sent out at least four search-warrant-focused emails attempting to enlist contributions from supporters. Turning the FBI’s actions into donations appeals to many within Trump’s orbit, as they believe the raid further solidifies him as a MAGA-world “martyr.” “The Biden folks love to talk about preserving ‘norms,’ and now they’re so desperate to ‘get’ Trump that they’re raiding his home and turning him into a martyr,” a Trump adviser told The Daily Beast, following the FBI’s search of Mar-a-Lago. “They’re going to mess around and single-handedly get him re-elected.” It’s not just the FBI, as Trump’s PAC recently tried to fundraise off a so far non-existent lawsuit against CNN.

Trump Appears to Use QAnon Song in Official Video.
A campaign-style video that former President Donald Trump recently posted to his social media site Truth Social appears to feature a song titled after the slogan of the crazed QAnon conspiracy theory, according to liberal media watchdog Media Matters. Based on Media Matters’ review, the music in Trump’s video derives from a 2020 song titled “Wwg1wga,” which is shorthand for the QAnon community’s credo “Where we go one, we go all.” Additional songs on the album containing Wwg1wga also reference QAnon, including “I Am Q” and “Q Send Me.” Trump’s clip, which is nearly four minutes long and was posted hours after the FBI raid on his home, also includes imagery of thunderstorms and the phrase “the best is yet to come,” both of which are common QAnon themes. Many within the QAnon community, who believe that there’s a cabal of satanic pedophiles that Trump is secretly bringing to justice, celebrated the song’s appearance in the video. “That’s not an accident. Team Trump knows exactly what they’re doing,” one QAnon conspiracist said. While some in Trumpworld have attempted to distance the ex-president from QAnon, Trump has continued to wink at the conspiracy theory’s adherents while Truth Social has actively pandered to them. A Trump spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Mole-a-Lago! Insider Led FBI to Trump’s Document Stash.
Is there a mole at Mar-a-Lago? That’s certainly the suggestion from two senior government officials who revealed to Newsweek that a “confidential human source” was able to tell the FBI which classified documents Donald Trump still had at Mar-a-Lago and where the documents were. Officials who executed the search warrant later removed some 10-15 boxes of documents Monday, some of which were in Trump’s safe. The officials told Newsweek that the agency was hoping to avoid a politicized media blitz when they arrived to the Palm Beach residence so chose to do it while he was away in New Jersey. Presidential records belong to the National Archives, according to the 1978 Presidential Records Act. But a 2018 law Trump signed, which made the act of removing or retaining classified documents a felony, may have come back to bite him.

Son of Albuquerque Muslim Killing Suspect Arrested on Federal Gun Violation.
A son of Muhammad Syed, the suspect in at least two murders of Muslim men in Albuquerque, has been arrested on a federal gun charge after allegedly lying on a background check. Shaheen “Maiwand” Syed was arrested on Tuesday and charged with allegedly buying two guns while using a fake address. In an affidavit criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court for New Mexico, prosecutors allege the younger Syed indicated he lived in Broward County, Florida, when purchasing two rifles in June 2021 in Albuquerque—when he had lived New Mexico for years. The discrepancy was revealed during an investigation into the elder Syed in connection with the July 26 killing of Aftab Hussein and the Aug. 1 killing of Muhammad Afzaal Hussain. The AR-15 and AK-47 the young Syed allegedly bought are not mentioned in the criminal complaint against his father—but it does list guns that the pair bought together.

Rep. Scott Perry Not a Target of FBI After Phone Seizure.
A lawyer for Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA), who earlier this week had his phone seized by federal investigators, told The New York Times on Wednesday that the Pennsylvania congressman was not a target of the Justice Department’s probe into efforts to tamper with the 2020 presidential election. Prosecutors told Perry, who has since received his phone back, that he was being evaluated as a witness in the federal inquiry, attorney John Irving said. “Representative Perry has directed us to cooperate with the Justice Department in order to ensure that it gets the information it is entitled to, but to also protect information that it is not entitled to,” Irving said. Perry is one of at least 11 Republican lawmakers who discussed overturning the election with Trump administration officials, according to the Times. The newspaper reported that Perry “played an especially active role” in efforts to replace Jeffrey Rosen, then the acting attorney general, with Jeffrey Clark, a department official viewed as more loyal to the White House. Clark’s home was searched by federal investigators, acting in relation to the criminal inquiry, in June.

Trump’s Michigan AG Candidate Revealed He Had Access to Voting Tabulator on Podcast.
Matthew DePerno, a Trump loyalist running to be the attorney general of Michigan, bragged that he had access to a voting tabulator, Detroit News reports. The outlet claims that during a 2021 podcast appearance, DePerno said: “We got access to a tabulator, and we were able to simulate elections. And if I can do it up here in Michigan, with just a couple guys, you don’t think China knows how to do this? You don’t think Russia knows how to do this? You don’t think people in D.C. know how to do it?” On Friday, the incumbent Michigan AG called for a special prosecutor to be appointed to consider charges against nine people, including DePerno, after uncovering evidence linking him to an alleged conspiracy to seize machines used to count votes from the 2020 election. DePerno, who has previously denied the result of the election, has been endorsed by Donald Trump, who even held a rally for DePerno in Michigan this year.

Right-Wing Activists Worry Pro-Trump FBI Protest Might Be a Trap.
Enraged after a team of FBI agents searched Donald Trump’s Florida residence, right-wing media has turned to promoting a pro-Trump rally of sorts outside the FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C., on Sunday. “Adam Hardage is calling on fellow veterans and Americans of all walks to join him Sunday 8/14 at the FBI HQ in Washington DC to protest the out-of-control FBI and its actions against President Trump,” far-right website The Gateway Pundit wrote. Other smaller right-wing blogs have since picked up the calls to action. It remains unclear as to what time the protest will occur Sunday. Yet, many of the prospective right-wing rally-goers within the chat claim the attempted protest might be a “trap.” “If this Nam [Vietnam] vet needs goes to D.C., it will be with a semi-auto pitchfork!” one pro-Trump commenter said. Another wrote: “Beware of possible FBI agents urging rebellion.” As for the FBI, a spokesperson told The Daily Beast: “The FBI respects the rights of individuals to peacefully exercise their First Amendment rights. We advise individuals taking part in protest activities to remain aware of their immediate surroundings and to report any suspicious activity to local law enforcement.” Hardage didn't return The Daily Beast's request for comment on Wednesday afternoon.

ISIS ‘Beatles’ Member Arrested at U.K. Airport on Terrorism Charges.
A British man accused of being a member of a brutal kidnap and murder cell for the Islamic State dubbed “The Beatles” has been arrested after touching down in the U.K. A statement from Britain’s Metropolitan Police confirmed that officers from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command arrested the man at Luton airport after he arrived in the U.K. on a flight from Turkey. He has since been identified as 38-year-old Aine Davis, who British press says had just been released after serving a 7 1/2-year prison sentence for terrorism offenses. In the U.K., he was arrested in relation to offenses under sections 15, 17 and 57 of the Terrorism Act, 2000 and was taken to a south London police station, where he remains in police custody. Davis left Britain in 2013 to joined up with ISIS and was arrested near Istanbul in 2015. The U.S. has alleged the cell was responsible for at least 27 hostage deaths, mostly from beheadings that were recorded and posted online. At his trial, he denied involvement in the cell, who were named “The Beatles” by the hostages due to their accents. He was convicted by a Turkish court two years later in 2017.

Spiraling Inflation Slowed in July, Easing Economists’ Worst Fears.
Inflation slowed in July as airfares and gas prices dropped, in an encouraging cooldown of the overheating U.S. economy. In the year through July, the Consumer Price Index rose by 8.5 percent—down from the 9.1 percent that was registered in June. The reprieve in price rises was bigger than economists had hoped for, though consumers are still facing hefty increases this year. When food and fuel costs are not included, prices have climbed by 5.9 percent through July, which is the same as the previous measurement. That’s because the reduction in costs at the gas pump in July was counteracted by further rises in rent and food costs. But July did see an overall deceleration in core inflation on a monthly basis, with last month recording a rise of 0.3 percent, compared with 0.7 percent in June.

Russia Creates ‘Major’ New Ground Force by Offering Cash to 50-Year-Olds: U.K. Intel.
A British intelligence report says Vladimir Putin has “almost certainly” established a “major new ground forces formation” to bolster his invasion of Ukraine. Local politicians in Russia have confirmed that recruits for the new 3rd Army Corps (3 AC) “are being offered lucrative cash bonuses once they deploy to Ukraine,” and recruitment “is open to men up to 50 years old and with only middle-school education,” the U.K. defense analysis says. The intelligence update also says that while a typical Russian army corps would consist of 15,000-20,000 soldiers, “it will probably be difficult for Russia to bring 3 AC up to this strength, given very limited levels of popular enthusiasm for volunteering for combat in Ukraine.” It adds that the 3 AC is “unlikely to be decisive to the campaign.”

Dead Body Found Burning, Hanging From Tree Near L.A. Merry-Go-Round.
A corpse was discovered aflame and hanging from a tree in Los Angeles’ Griffith Park, fire officials said Tuesday afternoon. The body, found near the park’s merry-go-round, was spotted by passers-by, who reported the flames to park rangers. The Los Angeles Fire Department put out the blaze and a coroner eventually retrieved the human remains, which have not been identified due to extensive burns. Investigators believe the person died of self-immolation, the Los Angeles Times reported. A detective told the newspaper that there was no evidence of foul play in the incident and speculated that the person might have been a “local transient.”

Ex-JPMorgan Traders Found Guilty of Fraud in Spoofing Trial.
A federal jury on Wednesday convicted the one-time head of JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s precious-metals desk and its top gold trader of fraud after they were accused of manipulating futures with a price-rigging tactic known as “spoofing.” The traders, Michael Nowak and Gregg Smith, were found guilty of spoofing, wire fraud, commodities fraud, and attempted price manipulation. They were acquitted, however, of conspiracy and racketeering under the RICO Act, a charge that would have essentially cast the firm’s precious-metals division as a crime syndicate, according to The Wall Street Journal. A third defendant, Jeffrey Ruffo, who worked in sales, was acquitted on both charges of conspiracy and racketeering that he faced. During the three-week trial, the Chicago jury heard how Smith, the top gold trader, would click his computer mouse placing and canceling fake spoofing orders—which “lured others into making disadvantageous trades,” as the Justice Department put it—so quickly that colleagues would ask jokingly if he needed to ice his fingers.


Majority of Local Cops Who Responded to Uvalde Had No Active Shooter Training.
The majority of local officers who responded to the Uvalde elementary school shooting in May that left 21 dead and 17 others wounded had no recorded active shooter training, a KXAN investigation found. The law enforcement response, particularly the 73-minute wait to neutralize the shooter, has been widely criticized by state and federal leaders and experts, with a Texas House Committee report saying the authorities “failed to adhere to their active shooter training.” But apparently, many responders had no such training. KXAN obtained records showing that less than half of officers from three local agencies had not completed required training by the time of the massacre. In fact, the school district officers were the only local agency to have all five responding officers complete such training, and two of those officers had more combined active shooter training experience than the embattled school district chief, Pete Arredondo.

NYC Carriage Horse Collapses on Hot Street in ‘Distress’.
New Yorkers and tourists in Hell’s Kitchen were greeted with the disturbing sight of a collapsed carriage horse on the street on Wednesday evening, according to local reports. Authorities responding to the scene found “a carriage horse lying in the middle of the roadway in distress,” the New York Police Department said in a later statement to W42ST. The statement continued that officers “were able to offer temporary aid to the horse by hosing it down to help it cool off.” The horse, a 14-year-old animal named Ryder, managed to rise to its feet after being sprayed down, to the cheers of onlookers. Edita Birnkrant, executive director of NYCLASS, a local animal rights nonprofit, told the outlet, “People are sick to their stomachs over this… We are so behind so many other worldwide cities that have already removed horses from the streets and replaced them with electric carriages.” A spokesperson for the local union representing carriage drivers told Gothamist that the horse had been suffering not from heat exhaustion but equine protozoal myeloencephalitis.

Black Men Disproportionately Infected by Monkeypox in Georgia, Early Data Shows.
Preliminary data from Georgia shows that Black men are much more likely to be affected by monkeypox in the state than men of other races, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. According to data from the state’s health department, which provides a racial breakdown for 74 percent of total cases, Black people make up 82 percent, with the next closest group being white people at 14 percent. And according to the U.S. census, white people make up 60 percent of Georgia’s population. Nathan Townsend, an expert in health care for gay Black men, told the Journal-Constitution that the disparity comes as no surprise. “It’s because [African Americans] don’t access services for a myriad of reasons, we’re distrusting of the health community. So, even with the vaccinations, there are people who are undecided,” he said.

Man With ‘Asian Mob’ Delusions Charged With Hate Crimes in Salon Attack.
A man from Dallas, Texas, has been indicted on hate crime charges after allegedly shooting three Asian American women at a salon in May. Jeremy Terrence Smith walked into the salon and fired off 13 bullets with a rifle, wounding the three women and endangering four others, according to an indictment. He’s been hit with seven charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, each with a hate-crime enhancement. “Smith is alleged to have intentionally selected the complainants because of his bias or prejudice against Asian Americans,” according to the press release. His girlfriend told cops that after a car crash involving an Asian man, Smith had “delusions that the Asian mob is after him or attempting to harm him.” Smith’s delusions have placed him in mental health facilities in the past, the girlfriend added.

American Woman Raped in Public Restroom in Paris.
An American woman out walking along the Seine River in Paris with her partner was raped when she entered a public toilet across from Notre Dame, French authorities said. “It is well lit, and there were plenty of people around, but the woman’s partner became concerned when she remained inside for a long time,” an investigator said, according to the Daily Mail. He went inside, heard her crying, and found the 27-year-old under attack, the report said. Other women in the restroom trapped the alleged assailant—reportedly a 23-year-old homeless man who claimed the encounter was consensual—and he was arrested and charged. The woman, who was treated at a local hospital, has returned to the U.S. but is still in contact with prosecutors about the weekend attack.

Sesame Place Announces Diversity Plan After Characters Accused of Snubbing Black Kids.
Sesame Place is reckoning with recent allegations that its performers have been intentionally ignoring children of color. In a press release Tuesday, the children’s theme park, based outside of Philadelphia, vowed that all current staff members will undergo an anti-bias training program by the end of September. Going forward, new hires will also be required to complete the training, and the park said the program will be led by national experts. “We have already begun engaging with employees, guests, civil rights groups as well as community leaders, and instituted some interim measures at the park while the review proceeds,” Sesame Place Philadelphia President Cathy Valeriano said in the statement. “The actions we are taking will help us deliver on our promise to provide an equitable and inclusive experience for all our guests every day.” The plan comes after videos emerged of Black children being snubbed by the park’s characters and went viral on social media.

Former Twitter Employee Found Guilty of Spying for Saudi Arabia.
Former Twitter Inc. employee Ahmad Abouammo was convicted Tuesday for spying on behalf of the Saudi Arabian government after he was found to have turned over the personal details of Twitter platform users who anonymously criticized the Kingdom and its royal family. Abouammo, who was a media partnership manager at the social media goliath, was charged with acting as an agent for the foreign government, money laundering, conspiracy to commit wire fraud and falsifying records, which prosecutors believe helped Mohammed bin Salman, the de-facto ruler of Saudi Arabia, silence his critics. The two-week trial in a San Francisco federal court showed evidence that Abouammo had received a Hublot watch and $300,000 in wire transfers from an aide to the Crown Prince.

Anne Heche Under Investigation for Felony DUI in Fiery Crash.
Los Angeles authorities are investigating Anne Heche, the actress who drove her car into a Los Angeles home at high speed last week, for a felony DUI in connection to the crash, TMZ reported Wednesday. Heche remains in a coma, in “extreme critical condition,” after the incident last Friday, a representative said. The felony DUI investigation replaces a previously reported probe for a misdemeanor hit and run. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that the charge was upgraded after Lynne Mishele, the occupant of the home that went up in a blaze after the crash, said she had suffered cuts that required medical treatment. Though investigators obtained a warrant to test her blood shortly after the crash, it remains unclear whether Heche had been driving under the influence. “The investigation is ongoing pending the blood result,” an investigator told the Times on Wednesday afternoon.

Fourth Suspect Arrested in Twisted Abduction, Rape of Teen.
Six years after a California woman allegedly had her ex-boyfriend’s 13-year-old daughter kidnapped, beaten, and sexually assaulted in a twisted plot to drive the girl out of the country, her eldest son has been charged with taking part in the crime. The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office says Brandon Roque was arrested by the U.S. Marshals after a grand jury indicted him in connection with the abduction. According to authorities, Roque’s mother, Sandra Garcia, 47, wanted to reunite with her ex and hoped to frighten his daughters into going to live with their mother in Sweden. On Feb. 16, 2016, one of the girls got off a school bus and was ambushed by masked men who forced her into a car trunk, drove her 20 miles away and “tied her to a tree, beat her up and sexually assaulted her before fleeing the scene,” the sheriff said. Police previously arrested Garcia, her younger son Mark Roque, and her cousin, Miguel Carriedo.

Realtor Accused of Trying to Put a Hit on Former Mother-in-Law Is in Hot Water Again.
Leigh Ann Bauman, the Missouri real estate agent who was arrested last year for allegedly trying to hire a hitman to kill her former mother-in-law, will have to spend 96 hours in jail for violating her bond. While it’s not entirely clear what she did, Bauman admitted to violating multiple conditions of her bail, including leaving her home, according to court documents. One outlet reported that Bauman had also consumed alcohol, while another said she allegedly tested positive for THC. She’ll have to serve the time starting Aug. 19. Bauman previously missed a court appearance in May, reportedly because she was in rehab. Her trial isn’t scheduled until Feb. 2023. Bauman allegedly wanted her ex-husband’s mother dead because she was worried the in-law and her ex would try to get full custody of their children.

Dartmouth Alum Found Dead by a River During Grad Party.
A delayed graduation party turned lethal Monday when 24-year-old David J. Gallagher, a 2020 alum of Dartmouth College, sustained severe injuries during a river hangout gone awry. Friends of Gallagher called 911 at around 1:48 a.m. and first responders found him lying on an embankment of the Connecticut River, about 100 yards south of the Ledyard Bridge in Hanover, New Hampshire. Hanover Police say alcohol may have played a role in the untimely death, but added that they don’t anticipate any criminal charges. The bridge, which connects Vermont and New Hampshire and crosses state lines, has a campus tradition attached to it that plays on a loophole between the nudity laws in both states. The “Ledyard Challenge” involves streaking, swimming across the river, and running back across the bridge, according to campus newspaper The Dartmouth.

Alleged New Jersey Park Rapist Caught After Masturbating in Public.
Police have apprehended a man they believe is behind at least two previous sexual assaults on women in a New Jersey park. The Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office said Wednesday that Rogelio Calyeca Postrero, 38, was initially arrested last week for masturbating in public. As police investigated Postrero further, they allegedly found that he’d been using a fake ID for work. When detectives realized he looked like state police sketches of a man accused of raping two different women in the area, they put two and two together. Postrero is accused of raping a woman biking at knifepoint about a year ago. He also allegedly robbed and raped another woman jogging in Duke Island Park in May then fleeing on a bike. Police say they found a bike that matched the description of the May assault at his home, and that his DNA matched a sample taken after the first assault.

Surveillance Pic Shows Tahoe Teen Hours Before She Vanished From Grad Party.
Placer County investigators have shared surveillance footage that identifies what Kiely Rodni, 16, was wearing the day she went missing. The image, taken from a local business in Truckee, California at 6 p.m. last Friday, shows Rodni wearing a black spaghetti strap bodysuit, green Dickies pants, a black grommet belt and black Vans. Rodni went missing at an Aug. 6 end-of-high-school party at the Prosser Family Campground where there were 200-300 teens and young adults. She was last seen at about 12:30 a.m. Saturday, and her phone has been out of service since. Her car, which also went missing, is a silver 2013 Honda CRV with California license plates that read “8YUR127.” “We just want her home, we’re so scared and we miss her so much,” said Lindsey Rodni-Nieman, the girl’s mother, in a recorded plea to the community. “We’re not looking to bust anybody else or get anybody in trouble, we just want to see our daughter home.” Anyone with information about Rodni’s disappearance can call the Placer County Sheriff's tip line anonymously at 530-581-6320, option 7.

Missing Alabama Dad’s Car Found Near Body in Burning House, Cops Say.
A white Toyota Corolla belonging to a missing Birmingham father of four was found Tuesday, just a block away from where Alabama authorities had responded to reports of a house fire hours earlier. Although unidentified human remains were discovered on the property after the flames were extinguished around 3 a.m., police did not immediately comment on a possible link between the two cases, according to Family and friends of Nathan Gemeinhart, a 42-year-old man who has been missing since Monday morning, told local media they continued to pray for his reappearance. “We grieve as those with deep hope,” Senior Pastor Charles Johnson of Red Mountain Church told WBRC FOX6. The pastor, who helped set up a GoFundMe to support Gemeinhart’s family, said that the vanished man was “a joy to talk to” and “a peaceful man.”

Teens Charged in Cover Up of Friend’s Mystery Boating Death.
Five friends who lied to cops about how a freshman Texas Christian University student drowned during a 2019 boat party on Lake Travis, near Austin, now face charges related to his death. In the aftermath of the tragedy, Jack Elliott’s friends ditched their alcohol and told authorities several versions of how he went overboard—including that he did a backflip into the water and that he fell while vomiting. None of them were true. “Jack Elliott was pushed by Delaney Brennan from the front of a wakeboard boat … operated by Elle Weber under the supervision of Carson Neel,” read a Dec. 2019 report from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. “Jack Elliott was struck by the propeller multiple times and was killed.” The report added that “false statements were given to the officers” about what had happened. In 2020, Elliott’s family filed a wrongful death lawsuit, at which point some of the teens admitted what had really happened. “Delaney and Jack were at the front of the boat, flirting and kissing. She gave Jack a ‘playful little shove’ and he fell off the boat,” one said in a sworn statement. “He fell. I didn’t mean to push him,” Brennan conceded. Brennan now faces a felony charge of tampering with evidence, which carries up to 10 years in jail. The boy who dumped the alcohol faces the same charge, while the other three were charged with misdemeanors.

Antiquities Dealer Georges Lofti, an Authority on Art Smuggling, Faces Arrest Over Stolen Works.
Georges Lotfi, an 81-year-old antiquities dealer who for years passed information to authorities on how to track down looted items, has been charged with criminal possession of stolen property, according to a report from Artnet. According to Artnet’s analysis of the arrest warrant, Lofti was listed on loan paperwork as “the first documented possessor” of a marble bull’s head valued at $12 million that was seized from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2017. “I was fighting with them for 10 years to stop illicit trading, and they turned against me,” Lotfi told The New York Times.

Family Sues Funeral Home Claiming a Maggot Wriggled Out of Their Loved One’s Eye.
A family has filed a lawsuit against a Brooklyn funeral home after they were distressed by the appearance of their loved one’s body, which they claim was improperly preserved. Regina Christophe, 37, died in her sleep on June 24 and her body was eventually taken to the McManus Funeral Home after two days with a medical examiner. It wasn’t until the day of the funeral on July 9 that Christophe’s family saw Regina’s remains. “Her face looked like it was caved in,” Christophe’s mother, Chantal Jean, said. “Actually, it looked like it was burned as fake skin was like melting off her face, one eye maggot came out of her eye.” Jean added that there was a “stench” and that the final sight of her daughter was horrific. “The last image I saw was a monster in the casket,” Jean added. “We feel sincere sympathy for the family and understand their grief,” the funeral home said in a statement. “The family contacted us four days after her passing, and at their request, services were scheduled another 11 days later. This was an extremely difficult case, and we used our best efforts to prepare her for the time requested by the family, and advised them of her condition prior to the day of services.”

Lost California Dog Found 5,600 Miles Away in Germany.
Police in Gilroy, California, are trying to crack a very curious case—how did a local dog wind up in a German village 5,600 miles away? The Gilroy Police Foundation wrote in a Facebook post that they had received a message showing the dog, along with a picture of its clover-shaped Gilroy tags. They added that they didn’t know how the hound had made it to Europe but that they had located the owner. “Moral of the story, good idea to license your dog,” the Facebook post added. “You never know where they might turn up.” In the comments under the post, a foundation spokesperson speculated: “We believe the dog belongs to a U.S. military person. The airbase is only 41 miles from where the dog was found. Most likely someone who lives off base. It was a happy ending that leaves us all wanting more of the story.”
