A father who had custody of his young daughter, was accused of sleeping with her in bed and raping her, according to police in Zimbabwe.

Plumtree police said that they have arrested the 40-year-old man, who was not identified to protect the identity of the rape victim, after being accused of beating his 5-year-old stepson and raping his 1-year-old daughter.

The man was charged with rape and assault.

In court, the man was acquitted of rape as the father did not have physical custody of the girl for several hours prior to being brought to a hospital for a medical examination to prove a sexual assault.

The man was convicted of assault after the 5-year old boy testified in court about the abuse he suffered at the hands of his stepfather.

According to the criminal complaint, the man’s wife fled from the home after he threatened to cut her with an ax because she protested the sexual abuse of her daughter.

The man then continued to sexually assault his daughter and rape her. One day, the man tied his 5-year-old stepson to a tree and beat him.

After the incident, the boy fled from the home and reported the abuse to the police. Doctors confirmed that the 1-year-old girl was raped.

(Scroll down for video) A company that sells dog food has issued a recall after a dangerous sedative was found in their products and several dogs became ill and one died, according to the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).

Out of an abundance of caution, Evanger’s Dog & Cat Food of Wheeling, Illinois, is voluntarily recalling specific lots of its Hunk of Beef products because of a potential contaminant Pentobarbital, which was detected in one lot of Hunk of Beef Au Jus.

Pentobarbital can affect animals that ingest it, and possibly cause side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, excitement, loss of balance, nausea, or in extreme cases, possibly death.

The specifically-identified lot numbers of cans of 12-oz Hunk of Beef being voluntarily recalled were distributed to retail locations and sold online in Washington, California, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, Maryland, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.

They were manufactured the week of June 6 – June 13, 2016.

Although Pentobarbital was detected in a single lot, Evangers is voluntarily recalling Hunk of Beef products that were manufactured the same week, with lot numbers that start with 1816E03HB, 1816E04HB, 1816E06HB, 1816E07HB, and 1816E13HB, and have an expiration date of June 2020.

The second half of the barcode reads 20109, which can be found on the back of the product label.

The subject recall affects 5 lots of food that were produced from its supplier’s lot of beef, which is specifically used for the Hunk of Beef product and no other products.

To date, it has been reported that five dogs became ill and 1 of the five dogs passed away after consuming the product with lot number 1816E06HB13.

Evanger’s is proactively issuing a recall voluntarily so as not to risk potential exposure to Pentobarbital in the product. This is the first recall for Evanger’s in its 82 years of manufacturing.

Although it has been verified that little or no product remains on store shelves, if consumers still have cans with the aforementioned lot numbers, he or she should return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

How To Deal With Difficult Neighbors

By: Michelle Parker  WorldWideWeirdNews.com

In life, you deal with a lot of stress and hardships.

However, your home should be the one place where you get to kick off your shoes and relax.

Sadly, many people lose this peaceful atmosphere in the form of bad neighbors. The most serene neighborhood can become a nightmare if you live next door to difficult people.

Some people have lived in their home for many years in peace before new neighbors moved in and ruined it all.

Dealing with difficult neighbors can drive the most peaceful person over the edge.

Here is the best way to deal with difficult neighbors.

Don't engage with them. It takes two to fight. If you ignore all their evil actions, they will likely go find someone else with whom they can pick a fight.

Don't allow you neighbors to steal your peace of mind and ruin your happiness.

If your neighbors trims trees that you planted and cared for or they throw garbage on your property, just pick it up and move on. It's not worth it to aggravate yourself over them.

Aggravation will affect your health and overall happiness. Are you neighbor worth the price?

Is winning the argument or fight with the neighbors worth losing your dignity or your freedom?

One couple lost their two sons to the prison system after they were accused of killing their neighbor during an argument.

Amari Morgan, 18, and his brother, Blaique, 20, were charged with murder of their next-door neighbor, 62-year-old Robert Bielec.

According to police, there was an ongoing dispute between the two families when Bielec allegedly made a sexual comment about their younger sister. The brothers took offense to the comment and used a baseball bat to kill Bielec.

Sadly, their parents, Patrick and Angel Morgan, were found dead in their home while their sons were in jail.

In another incident, police in Italy, said that a man was charged with murder after he allegedly killed his neighbor during a fight over a shared water bill

Vigevano Police said that Graziano Girotto, 58, shot Luciano Pascale, 41, outside his apartment.

Despite having separate apartments, the suspect and the victim shared a water meter that was in the name of the victim. Girotto has not paid his share of the bill.

On the day of the incident, Girotto had an argument with Pascale, when he pulled out a gun and shot his neighbor at close range.

Pascale died at the scene from the gunshot wound and Girotto was arrested.

Other people targeted their neighbors’ animals.

Police in the United Kingdom, said that Gary O'Donnell of Goole, 59, was charged with animal cruelty after being accused of killing his neighbor's cat by feeding it meat laced with antifreeze.

O'Donnell was ordered to pay a fine of 1,000 pounds ($1,300) and 750 pounds ($975) compensation after being convicted of animal cruelty.

According to the evidence presented in court, O'Donnell was frustrated with the cat identified as Fred, because it entered his garden and defecated on his flowers.

Don’t let this happen to you. If you tried to stay away from your neighbors and they still give you grief, then it is better to give up the home you love and move rather than to live with them.

Judge Randy Stoker

A teenager with a big appetite for sex was banned from having sex with anyone until he is married.

Cody Duane Scott Herrera, 19, of Twin Falls, Idaho, pleaded guilty to statutory rape of a 14-year-old girl.

Judge Randy Stoker sentenced him to between five and 15 years in prison, but he suspended the sentence, and he has ordered Herrera to stay celibate until he gets married instead of going to prison.
