The best of Boone Beat 2013

Streakers, large turtles and “hoodlums dressed like aliens” were among several odd occurrences this year that caused Boone County residents and visitors to dial 911. Whether true or simply perceived, these calls to police caused readers to chuckle, outright laugh or shake their heads and ask “why?” There were calls about defecation and dentures, drunk men and donkeys, and battery by Sloppy Joes and frosty treats. Snakes and planes made an appearance, though not together, along with menagerie of other animals — dogs, cats, bats, raccoons, sheep, ducks, coyotes, chickens, and even a tiger. People reported thefts of unexpected things, like hair clippers, bales of hay, and a Bible, and cell phones and tools were high on the list of the most swiped items.
