  1. Lamppost revenge - dog killed
    From correspondents in Lille, France

    A DOG was electrocuted in France when it urinated on a lamppost with a loose connection, officials in the town said today.

    The three-year old Argentinian mastiff named Pako was being walked by its owner in Wavrechain-sous-Denain in northern France on Sunday evening.

    It let out a yelp and died on the spot.

    The owner received a shock when he tried to help the dog and was taken to hospital, the town hall said.

    A spokesman for the local electricity board said the street light had been vandalised and a live wire was in contact with the metal pole.
