New York's Central ParkMany strange and unexplained things happen in New York City, and this is no exception. A 3-foot-tall black bear cub was found under a bush in Central Park by two women walking their dog. Black bears are native to the state and their population is growing, but none are known to live in the middle of New York City.

It was highly unlikely that the bear cub on its own had wandered into the city from the wild, and there were no reports of a missing black bear cub from any of the city’s zoos. Bears are not allowed to be kept as pets in the city, so if it was privately-owned it was brought in illegally.

Police and investigators are at a loss to explain the presence of the animal, and as of now, the cause of death is undetermined. When it was discovered, its head was resting on a bicycle.

Some suspect that the cub was a victim of animal cruelty and dumped in the park to avoid prosecution. The bicycle is being dusted for prints in an attempt to find the owner and perhaps an answer to the mystery of the black bear cub in Central Park. The remains were sent to the Department of Environmental Conservation in Albany for a necropsy.

hospital bedCelebrity and outspoken host of television show Fashion Police Joan Rivers is currently a patient at Mount Sinai Hospital, and her condition is said to be critical but stable. She was rushed there from at Yorkville Endoscopy on E. 93rd Street in New York City after she stopped breathing in the middle of a procedure for her vocal chords.

The news was first spread by TMZ and was quickly followed up. The latest news quotes an unidentified family source that there is some concern about the outcome, and any decisions will have to be made when daughter Melissa Rivers arrives, who was then on her way to the hospital. Joan Rivers was reported to be unconscious but the hospital has not yet released any official information as to her condition.

Joan Rivers, born Joan Alexandra Molinsky, turned 81 last June but showed no signs of slowing down. She hosts several shows, including one in YouTube called In Bed with Joan. Famed for her outrageous comments and no-holds-barred criticisms, she has sometimes been criticized for stepping over the line when dealing with sensitive topics. Nevertheless, she has been a notable success in many fields, including her incursions into publishing. Her twelfth book, Diary of a Mad Diva, was released just this year.
