Dolphin snatches iPad of woman taking its photo

ORLANDO, Fla. — A woman trying to take a picture of a dolphin at SeaWorld in Florida with an iPad apparently got a bit too close because it snatched the device right out of her hands.

Video shot by another parkgoer shows the dolphin reaching over the side of the viewing tank at SeaWorld Orlando, where visitors can touch the dolphins. After the dolphin grabs the iPad and tosses it into the water, the woman retrieves the device and then quickly walks away.

A voice can be heard over a loudspeaker saying, "As you can see, the dolphins can reach your loose items."

Tampa's WTVT-TV reports there's no word on the fate of the iPad.

Suspected meth lab found under Wal-Mart parking lot

AMHERST, N.Y. — Authorities say they've discovered what they believe is a methamphetamine lab under the parking lot of a Wal-Mart store in western New York.

Police in the town of Amherst say officers on routine patrol found chemicals and other items used to make meth in an underground culvert that runs below the parking lot in suburban Buffalo. Officers say the culvert is tall enough for a person to stand up in.

Police and fire crews on Monday removed several jars of suspected meth from a manhole that's accessible from the culvert.

Authorities say they plan to look at the Wal-Mart store's surveillance video to see if it shows people using the culvert.
