They look cute, but not all pets can be trusted. Take Jake, for example. Jake the Cat lives in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and loves to swipe neighbors’ clothing–gloves, socks, even underwear! In Florida, an alligator crept into one lady’s house in the middle of the night and crashed her party. And, then there’s Sam. Sam, a seagull in Scotland, swoops into his local convenience store to swipe cheesy Doritos on a regular basis. These stories–and many more–are retold in one of my favorite books, Bad Pets.
Recently, Dalen–a Clear Lake 3rd grader–discovered these funny stories and agreed to read you Sam’s story. Once you’ve heard Sam’s story, check out the news story to see him in action. Many thanks to Dalen for his skillful reading and his mom, Dalen’s in-house videographer!
