SurvivalBlog presents another edition of The Survivalist’s Odds ‘n Sods— a collection of news bits and pieces that are relevant to the modern survivalist and prepper from “JWR”. Our goal is to educate our readers, to help them to recognize emerging threats and to be better prepared for both disasters and negative societal trends. You can’t mitigate a risk if you haven’t first identified a risk. Today, we look at a claimed Jeep copycat.
UK Bridge Terrorists Had Been Released
Linked over at the great Whatfinger.com news aggregation site: Fellow Terrorist of London Bridge Attack Also Released Early, Also Plotted Attack. Oh, and in related news: there was also this odd tidbit:
“A quick-thinking bystander who was inside London’s Fishmonger’s Hall when a deadly terrorist attack began grabbed a 5′ narwhal tusk off the wall and helped subdue a knife-wielding man who killed two pedestrians on London Bridge.
The attacker, said to be a recently-released terrorist prisoner believed to be wearing a fake suicide vest and a tracking tag, was taken down by the tusk-wielding hero and a man with a fire extinguisher before police shot him dead.”
104-Year-Old Wisconsin Mom Bags Her First Buck
H.L. was tge first of several readers who sent this: 104-Year-Old Wisconsin Mom Bags Her First Buck. Here is a quote:
“Bill Teeters said his 104-year-old mom, Florence, told him last year she wanted to get a hunting license. This week, she got her wish and accompanied him during a hunt on their land in Price County, according to NBC 15.
“I took mom out to the blind this year. I had a nice chair for her and it was nice and warm,” said Bill, who is the youngest of Florence’s five children.
“A little after 4 p.m., a buck shows up about 30 yards away. I tapped her on the knee and I pointed. She nodded and smiled and was real quiet. Then she took the shot!”
Florence is reportedly the oldest person to date to purchase a gun deer license and actually bag a deer, according to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Go Wild database.”

Judge Says Mahindra is a Jeep Copycat
Reader Tim J. spotted this item: Does this ATV look too much like a Jeep? A federal judge thinks so, and wants to ban it. JWR Adds: In most of the Redoubt states, all registered ATVs are considered street legal, and they are even seen on minor highways.
Officer Takes Out Active Shooter and Gets Indicted
Reader Paul A. sent us this: Oklahoma officer takes out active shooter. Gets indicted for murder.. The article begins:
“The insanity of giving criminals more rights than our protectors has fully gone full-blown. For the first time ever within the United States, a police lieutenant is being indicted for a murder charge for taking down an active shooter.
I assure you; you didn’t misread that: a cop is actually being charged for shooting and killing an armed suspect who had opened fire on police and citizens.
A police lieutenant that is based out of Blackwell, Oklahoma has just been indicted earlier this week for second-degree murder in the May 20 killing of a woman during a vehicle pursuit, in which shots were fired at the officers involved in the pursuit.”
