The hunt continues for two dangerous dogs still on the loose in Hamilton after turning on members of the public and killing seven sheep in the area. Dog control officers are appealing to the public to keep an eye out for a PitBull cross and a Staffordshire cross.

The dogs had earlier turned on members of the public and dog officers attending the sheep killing incident.

A competition called How Far Will You Go? ended with a man stapling and setting fire to his penis. For his efforts he won $500 cash and a $500 bar tab. Lion Breweries says it had no idea the competition would go so far.
