VACAVILLE (CBS SF) — The story of a depressed goat and his best friend Jellybean the donkey are taking the internet by storm.
More than a million people have viewed the YouTube video of the two animals that were rescued from a hoarder in Southern California.
The goat went on what’s described as a hunger strike until he was finally reunited with his friend.
“Animal control said he was raised with a burro and they were best friends. And when they were separated, the burro really brayed and cried a lot, and we said oh my God,maybe he’s suffering from depression at the loss of his friend,” Jan Galeazzi of the Animal Place said.
The pair ended up on a farm in Vacaville, where they’re able to frolic in the sun together.
“He was suddenly up, lively. You could see his nostrils flaring, his eyes lighting up when she’s being…

VICTORVILLE (CBSLA.com) — A global cyber attack, in which a hacker is targeting and locking iPad, iPhone and other Mac devices, and sending out a ransom message to the afflicted, has reportedly reached the Southland.
The devices are reportedly targeted, attacked, and are ultimately locked by the hacker, using the name Oleg Pliss.
It is unclear how many people have been exposed to the hacking.
Reports began abroad of a text message, reaching users of the attacked iPhones, iPads, and other Mac devices overseas, and demanding $100 be sent to a PayPal account in exchange for unlocking their device.
Now, the attack seems to have reached Southern California.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (CBS SF) — Author and poet Maya Angelou, who spent her formative years in the San Francisco Bay Area becoming a force on stage, screen and the printed page, has died. She was 86.
Wake Forest University announced Angelou’s death in a news release Wednesday.
She had been scheduled to attend the 2014 MLB Beacon Awards Luncheon on May 30 but pulled out for “health reasons,” Major League Baseball said last week. Last month, she also canceled an event in Fayetteville, Ark., because she was recovering from an “unexpected ailment” that sent her to the hospital.
She gained acclaim for her first book, her autobiography “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,” making her one of the first African-American women to write a best-seller.
In her earlier years she was a ground-breaker in the Bay Area.
In 1940, Angelou’s…

BELMONT, New York(CBS SF) — Horse racing Triple Crown contender California Chrome had some small but very dangerous company on the race track last week.
An opossum was seen wandering around the Belmont Park racetrack on New York’s Long Island during a workout.
The critter crossed paths with the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner as the colt completed a practice run.
The innocent-looking opossum isn’t so innocent, however.
The marsupial carriesthe parasite Sarcocystis neuronawhich can be found it its feces. The U.S. Department of Agriculture characterizes the parasite as the most common cause of equine protozoal myeloencephalitis (EPM) in horses in America.
The illness attacks horses’ brain and nervous system and the results can be devastating.
“They’ll be wobbly, uncoordinated, they’ll misplace their legs into space and these will be recognized as neurological deficit,” said Dr. Nicola Pusterla with UC Davis Veterinary Medicine.
The disease can be fatal.

SAN BERNARDINO (CBSLA.com) — A San Bernardino teenager may be permanently blinded in his right eye after being shot by a pellet gun while walking home.
CBS2’s Tom Wait reports 13-year-old “Sin-Cheeze” Mosely was at the intersection of East Wier Road and Waterman Avenue Thursday when he heard the sound of a gun firing and then felt a sharp pain in his eye.
Police say they’re investigating other pellet gun shootings in the area and the shooter is still on the loose.
But Mosely’s mother, Chrissy Shuss, says her son will need multiple surgeries in order to have hope of regaining his sight.
“The pellet is still lodged in his eye. He’s pretty worried about surgery and all that but they’re just telling us day-by-day as he improves what’s going to go on,” Shuss said, explaining, “They won’t be able to go in and try to get it out until…

IRWINDALE (CBS SF) — The fiery fight between hot sauce maker Sriracha and the Southern California town of Irwindale is finally over.
The city council voted to drop a public nuisance lawsuit against the company.
People living near the factory complained spicy odors burned their throats and eyes.
Sriracha says it has taken steps to fix the issue.
On April 9, the Irwindale City Council gave the factory 90 days to make changes to stop the spicy odors that prompted complaints from some residents last fall. Declaring a public nuisance will allow city officials to enter the factory and make changes if the odors persist after the deadline.
The decision came despite testimony by air-quality experts that progress was being made toward a resolution. The South Coast Air Quality Management District said its inspectors have taken air samples inside the plant, and believed the information gathered should allow the factory…

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Giant matchsticks have been popping up around Los Angeles and no one is sure why or what they represent.
The large props have been spotted in areas such as Runyon Canyon, Hollywood, Venice and Los Feliz with #Moments written on the bottom in red.
KNX 1070’s Claudia Peschiutta reports the matchsticks have sparked a flurry of activity on Instagram and Twitter, and even caught the eye of city officials.[cbs-audio-player title=”Giant Matchsticks Popping Up Around LA, But Why?” artist=”Claudia Peschiutta” download=false image=”http://cbsla.files.wordpress.com/2010/08/knx-logo-black.jpg” url=”https://cbsla.files.wordpress.com/2014/05/mp3_bc_-wav_am-drop-box_amd-matchsticks-cpe-2.mp3″ station_name=”KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO” station_logo=”http://cbsla.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/knx-radio.jpg”]
Some people believe they are a fire safety message, while others think it is street art or represents an inspirational message.
But City Councilman Tom LaBonge said the matchsticks may not be entirely appropriate for a city that regularly faces threats of wildfires.
