The BBC reports that a rare prehistoric shark has been filmed at a Japanese marine park.  The natural habitat of the creature is 600 meters or more below the sea.  More here and here.

 While controversy continues over the whether the diminutiveness of the so-called “Hobbit” remains is the result of race or disease, digs resume at the cave in Indonesia where they were found.  More here.

In Lowell, Ohio, residents experienced a mysterious power surge for which both the Ohio Dept. of Transportation and American Electric Power deny responsibility.  One resident reported coming home to a burning smell and a brown, melted surge protector.  Among property destroyed by the surge were computers, microwaves, TVs and satellite equipment.  The original story, no longer available, was posted here.

Finally, authorities in Montana are searching for an unknown creature.  “It leaves a track like a small wolf, or a dog, or a wolf-hybrid, but its killing habits are inefficient, nothing like the surgical lethality of a wolf taking meat from a herd of domestic sheep. . . .  This creature is a traveler, and it is not always alone, though its companion leaves a smaller track still, adding to the mystery.”  Details can be found here and here.  In a comment on the story at the Caspar Star Tribune, one reader suggests that the creature might be the legendary Shunka Warak’in.
