An Inland Empire neighborhood is being inundated with mountain lion sightings. Some residents are at times, afraid to leave their homes with their pets. One homeowner says a big cat took off with one of his dogs.

Rancho Cucamonga resident Fred Gilley says one of his poodles was killed by a mountain lion last Friday night around 9 p.m. "We saw the footprint from over here in the corner where he jumped over the wall," said Gilley.

TUOLUMNE CITY, Calif. (KFSN) -- Crews fighting the Rim Fire near Yosemite are making progress but the fire continues to grow in the Stanislaus National Forest.

The fire - now the seventh-largest California wildfire in records dating to 1932 - was threatening about 4,500 structures and has destroyed at least 23. Thousands of firefighters have arrived since the fire erupted Aug. 17 west of Yosemite in the Stanislaus National Forest, where the slopes of the Sierra begin to rise above the eastern side of California's Central Valley. An expected increase in humidity Tuesday afternoon could help suppress flames, said Matt Mehle, a National Weather Service meteorologist assigned to the fire.

An El Monte family reached out to police for help, and an officer shot one of their beloved dogs.

The family told Eyewitness News they contacted the El Monte Police Department after their 14-year-old son ran away from home. Officers came to the house to get a picture of the boy -- but the family told them to call ahead of time so they could put away their two dogs. They say police never contacted them and ignored a "beware of dog" on the front gate. "They just came in our door without calling us or anything and then our dog ran up to the police and the police shot it," said Chi Nguyen, 11.

Don Thompson may be CEO, director and president of McDonald's Corp., but he still has to answer to a nine-year old girl who accuses the fast food giant of trying to "trick kids into eating food that isn't good for them."

Hannah Robertson, 9, flew in with her mom from Kelowna, British Columbia, to attend McDonald's annual shareholder meeting Thursday in Oak Brook, Ill., the company's headquarters. "Something that I don't think is fair is when big companies try to trick kids into eating food that isn't good for them by using toys and cartoon characters," Robertson read during the question and answer part of the meeting. "If parents haven't taught their kids about healthy eating then the kids probably believe that junk food is good for them because it might taste good."

In an end-run worthy of an NFL halfback, the National Health Federation is spearheading the introduction of legislation to counter the FDA's infamous new Draft Guidance on New Dietary Ingredients (NDIs).

Since the passage of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994, the United States has enjoyed excellent access to essential nutrients, but more recently we have watched as the FDA increasingly squeezes the life out of that law with new and onerous rules and regulations. Now, the FDA wants to enforce even more rigorous "safety" standards on products that have never caused harm, but which entered the marketplace after the year DSHEA became law, 1994.

This week the House of Representatives will consider a provision to House Agricultural Appropriations Bill that will fundamentally undermine the concept of judicial review.

Hidden under the guise of a "Farmer Assurance Provision" (Section 733), the provision strips the rights of federal courts to halt the sale and planting of genetically engineered crops during the legal appeals process. In the past, legal advocates have successfully won in court the right to halt the sale and planting of unapproved GMO crops while the approval of those crops is under review by a federal judge. This dangerous new House provision, which were calling the Monsanto Protection Act, would strip judges of their constitutional mandate to protect consumer rights and the environment, while opening up a floodgate of planting of new untested genetically engineered crops, endangering farmers, consumers and the environment.

For Soldotna fishing guide Greg Brush, the rare and precious finally arrived -- a summer day off between king and silver salmon seasons. But then the slightest noise -- a twig snapping -- prompted Brush to glance over his shoulder to see...

He estimated that the animal weighed 900-plus pounds, and was 15 to 20 years old. It had grass packed in its molars and little fat on its bones. "It was starving to death and saw an opportunity," Brush said. The encounter left the fishing guide, in his words, "a wreck -- dry heaving and hyperventilating, with some abdominal cramping."

The Cloudbuster as designed by Wilhelm Reich did something amazingly well-it absorbed the negative orgone energy that surrounds us and induced rain. It made rain happen.

The main trouble with Wilhelm Reich's Cloudbuster was that because it pulled negative orgone energy from the space surrounding it, the cloudbuster accumulated, and soon became saturated with, negative orgone energy.

That's what millionaire vaccine industrialist Paul Offit said to me following a talk he gave at the University of Pennsylvania, where he is the Maurice R. Hilleman Professor of Vaccinology, endowed by Merck.

But that was not the only abusive thing he said to me. He also called me stupid, lied that I don't have Asperger Syndrome and labeled me with a new diagnosis after again calling me a stalker. Offit's talk was part of Penn's Microbiology Seminar Series sponsored by PENN Infectious Diseases. It was titled "Rotavirus Vaccines: From Bench to Bedside." Throughout the lecture, he talked about the different rotavirus vaccines: RotaTeq, Rotarix and RotaShield - the vaccine pulled for causing intussusception, which is a potentially fatal condition in which the intestine turns inside-out. He even discussed how he was going to lobby to bring back RotaShield in 2000, but that it was already too late and he blamed the harm to RotaShield's reputation on the ensuing controversy over mercury in vaccines. Offit also admitted that his own vaccine, RotaTeq, can cause intussusception.
