We've all heard how some insects are popular delicacies around the world. Raw, fried, dipped in chocolate, you know! Scorpion is where many people would draw the line, we suspect. Especially if the stinging nuisance is still alive. And grumpy.

Some days are okay. Others you're trapped in a toilet.
This seriously happened for one poor Chinese pup, whose owner called police after she found her pet dog trapped under her squat toilet in the city of Mengzi in Yunnan Province.
