Seeing as the raccoon is one of the primary carriers of rabies in the US would you not want to avoid being in its presence? Explains the running, as funny as it might look.

Sydney-siders would understand the wince-inducing headline: "Man Stabbed In Rocks Area". I'll see if I can find a link, but it was a long time ago.

The NT News wins

As well as Crock Stories, the NT News has some startling front page headlines, like these;

Why I stuck a cracker up my clacker

Best man left bleeding after being hit by flying dildo.

Cat nappears shaved my pussy.

They stole my dog while I was on the bog.

After the 1996 F1 Argentinian Grand Prix, in which Pedro Diniz's car was engulfed in flames after his engine blew, a British tabloid newspaper (The Sun) published a dramatic picture with the headline
"DINIZ IN THE OVEN".

The term "crack down" might be better worded; let's hope they kept their uniforms on:

Trump on Putin: I Don’t Know Her

“I think he’s changed. It’s a very sad thing for the world. He’s very much changed.”

The headline I keep seeing is, “I don’t know HER,” Is there something that Trump knows that we don’t, or is the newsfeed just trying to mess with Putin and Trump?

Or did they mix up the story with an allegation against Trump?

News Chronicle at the start of Vivien Fuchs journey across Antarctica: Sir Vivien Fuchs off to the South Pole

Or allegedly the Yorkshire Evening Post: Fog in Channel - Continent cut off
or again allegedly the same source: Bradford man in earthquake - hundreds feared dead.

Journalistic gems

Two headlines from the fabled history of journalism come to mind:
"Tot slays six in ax fest"
and
"Dentist arrested for filling wrong cavity" (he molested a patient)
