The EPA Hits New Lows as Reports Surface of Employees Literally Leaving a Dump in the Hallway

In an e-mail obtained by Government Executive, employees at the EPA were told to shape up after reported incident of feces being placed outside an office bathroom. Administrator Howard Cantor said "Management is taking this situation very seriously and will take whatever actions are necessary to identify and prosecute these individuals." Poop shenanigan-doers, beware!

This comes after numerous other EPA misconduct incidents, including one employee pretending to be a CIA agent to get unlimited vacation time and another fessing up to spending as many as 6 hours a day watching naughty internet bits. Hats off to the Environmental Protection Agency though, it takes guts to be this blatantly incompetent and wasteful.

Here's Huffington Post's piece on the poopy situation with some more detail:

Photo of the Day: Bobcat Catches Shark on Beach in Florida

Meanwhile, in Florida… a bobcat was spotted at Sebastian Inlet State Park in Vero Beach dragging a shark along the sand.

And it’s got the Internet talking, because that is one badass bobcat.

What do you think this is Bobcat, Australia?

The photographer, John Bailey, says that the beast leapt into the water to grab it while it was busy eating another fish.

The cat then pulled it out of the ocean and onto the sand. He eventually dropped the shark and fled because it got scared (presumably from having his photo being taken), so he didn’t even get to enjoy his meal.

Commenters, of course, are questioning the validity of the photo, but experts say it’s actually a pretty normal occurrence.

“There is no reason to believe it’s fake,” said a rep from the Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission.

On the FWC Facebook page, the group says it’s most likely an adult Atlantic Sharpnose Shark.
