Good morning and happy Thursday everyone! Let’s get your Thursday started!
Fun Fact: In 1932, a man named Thomas Earl had a tough day and it ended up being his last.
Earl, a zookeeper in Cleveland, Ohio, was fired in the morning but had to finish the day. Later in the day, when he was feeding the bears, one of the bears mauled him. Police arrived and shot the bear, but also accidentally shot Earl. In the aftermath, it was determined Earl was already dead before the police accidentally shot him.
