Fact ChecksCritter Country
Pity the poor animal — rarely does anything good happen to him in the realm of urban legends. If he isn't the object of some unfortunate mishap, he's being treated cruelly, causing a calamity, being unceremoniously disposed of, or forming the main course of someone's meal. And when the animal's turn to be the star of the story comes, it's usually because he's attacked some unsuspecting human being. Since we like to provide our readers with all the creature comforts of home, we've given our friendly critters their due and included a fair share of tales that highlight the lighter side of the animal kingdom as well.
