Area Man Attacked By Pitbull Owner

pitbull owner attacks


 An Inver Grove Heights man is listed in stable condition after an assault by the owner of a pitbull terrier named Sweet Pea.
Frederick Mantooth, 29, reportedly infuriated the dogs owner by failing to acknowledge its gentle demeanor and hilarious expression in a series of Facebook and Instagram photos posted on Monday.


His alleged attacker, Karl Wantenstien, 43, complained to authorities that Mantooth, like so many others, was guilty of profiling Sweet Pea.
“Sweet Pea wouldn’t hurt a flea. It’s not fair that jerks like Mantooth won’t give her a fair shake. I posted over a dozen photos of her on Facebook- some on Instagram too.  I know he saw most of them but didn’t hit the like button once- not once!!”


“It’s important to remember after an attack

like this that pet owners are generally

safe individuals and needn’t be feared.”


Attacks like these are becoming more common as organizations like Pitbull Rescue USA®, and regional animal shelters work to integrate displaced pitbulls back into communities.
“It’s important to remember after an attack like this that pet owners are generally safe individuals and needn’t be feared. Behavior like this is usually the result of their environment,” says Jeff Maddingly of the South Metro Animal Shelter.


Carver County does not generally destroy owners after attacks like these. Wantenstien is being held at a local hospital for observation pending rabies testing.

CLAIM: Story about one of the winners who shared the $1.5 billion Powerball jackpot succumbed within days to a cocaine overdose is urban folklore


EXAMPLE: [Collected via e-mail, January 2016]

Hey man- this is an urban myth. I read about it in Snope’s”

ORIGIN:One of the multitude of news stories from about stories circulating  that hit social media in the wake of the record $1.5 billion Powerball lottery jackpot (shared by three winners) in mid-January 2016 was the tale of a false story about a California winner who supposedly took out a loan against his forthcoming lump sum lottery payment and quickly succumbed to a cocaine overdose while surrounded by prostitutes:

1 of the 3 $1.5B Powerball jackpot winners was found in his new multi-million dollar home dead of an accidental cocaine overdose. – finds false!



Further investigation reveals that yeah, that the dude was totally dead and totally had at least a kilo of blow on hand.  It’s what happens when people win the lottery. Duh!

lottery winner dead cocaine

Chip Dip Recipe – Savory Bloody Mary Flavor

Game Day Bloody Mary Chip Dip Recipe

Getting ready for the game I found myself craving chips and dip. Since it was game day, and game day ends in “y”, I had bloody Mary ingredients on the counter.  A light went on.

After a few revisions, I’ve crafted what I and others believe to be a delicious and savory bloody Mary chip dip recipe with a kick. Try it out, share with friends – let me know what you think in the comments below.
*Note: My first run at the recipe featured mayonnaise. Plain yogurt won out in the final recipe. It’s lighter and better compliments the citrus.

Greg’s Famous Bloody Mary Chip Dip


8 oz plain yogurt

8 oz sour cream

2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce* For extra kick, try Demitri’s chipotle habanero seasoning

2 Tbsp prepared horseradish

2 Tbsp Sacramento tomato juice

1 or 2 oz finely minced jalapeño peppers

1 tsp celery salt

1/2 oz fresh lemon juice

1/2 oz fresh lime juice

1 tsp fresh cracked black pepper

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper powder (or to taste)

*Note: 2 Tbsp Demitri’s Chilies and Peppers Bloody Mary Seasoning can be used in place of Worcestershire and celery salt


In a medium mixing bowl combine all ingredients. Mix thoroughly, cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving. (Consider making the night before) Crack a bit more pepper over the top before serving. Garnish with lemon wedge and celery stalk. Great with corn chips, crackers, or your favorite potato chip.

Don’t forget the beer chaser!
