Fresno sheriff’s deputy SHOT WHILE CYCLING


An off-duty Fresno County sheriff’s deputy was shot Tuesday afternoon while cycling.

The deputy was cycling when he heard a sound and felt something strike his back. The deputy was knocked from his bike.

The deputy saw the rear passenger of a blue SUV pull a rifle back inside the vehicle.

One wonders if the shooter targeted the victim as a cyclist or as a law enforcement officer. The guy was off-duty and likely out of uniform, right?

Bovine vs Bike

Cyclist Melanie Spigelmyre was attacked by a road raging steer as she cycled through a herd of free range cattle in Fresno, California yesterday. Although she escaped relatively unscathed, her bike was seriously damaged. A photographer managed to snap a photo of Spigelmyre just as the bull charged her on her bike.
