Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: I'm a paramedic. I'm at the scene of a grisly car accident and, well, I just found the driver's foot, which is now severed and all mangled. May I take it home with me to help train my "body-recovery dog?"

Answer: No. That foot does not belong to you or your dog. Taking it may be second-degree theft, plus you could get sued by its true owner. (Lowering the Bar, Florida Man Sues Alleged Foot-Stealer)

2) Question: I am due to appear at a hearing in Juvenile and Domestic Relations court, but I do not have a caregiver lined up for my monkey, Kara. It would be abusive to leave Kara home alone -- would you leave your child at home? Kara has to be close to me. Do you think I can sneak her through security in my bra if I put her in diapers for the day?

Answer: It is highly unlikely that a diaper-wearing monkey will make it through security in your bra. And if she does, you will have even more trouble when the judge sees her. Make alternate plans for Kara. (Turley, Court Security Discover Woman Smuggling in a Monkey into Courthouse).

3) Question: I was trying to rob this house. Nobody was supposed to be home but now the owner has suddenly returned, along with two German shepherds, so I'm hiding in the bathroom! Now she is asking me what I'm doing in the house! This was not the plan!!! What if she has a gun? What should I do?

Answer: Have you thought about calling the police? (ABC, Showering Home Intruder Calls 911 on Homeowner)
