'Bigfoot' caught on webcam monitoring eagle's nest

Indistinct hairy figure spotted walking through dense forest - and other tall tales

Our pick of the strange stories from around the world.

Has 'Bigfoot' been caught on film?

A webcam set up to provide a live stream of an eagle's nest in northern Michigan has captured "footage of Bigfoot", its owners claim. The footage shows an indistinct hairy figure walking through the dense forest for nearly a minute. Professor Jeff Meldrum, a Bigfoot specialist at Idaho State University, says it is "an interesting video", but "doesn't offer much by way of compelling evidence".

Man awarded $1,200 for pizza that never showed up

An Australian man has been awarded $1,200 (£717) after Domino's failed to deliver his pizza. Lawyer Tim Driscoll said he had been offered a refund when he contacted the restaurant and was told they were too busy to fulfil his order. However, the refund also failed to materialise and after 18 months of complaints, Driscoll took the pizza chain to court for breach of contract. Domino's is planning to appeal.

'Turkey drop' set to continue

The annual dropping of live wild turkeys out of a plane over Arkansas will continue this year, despite protests by animal rights activists. Pilot Dana Woods will fly over the Yellville Turkey Trot Festival while two of his cousins throw the birds out at an altitude of around 500ft. "We don't endorse the practice of heaving unsuspecting turkeys out of aircraft for entertainment purposes," said the Federal Aviation Authority, "but our regulations don't specifically exclude live animals."
