Whoever heard of a horse who lives in a house (while his owners live next door)? What about a greyhound who needs contact lenses to win his races? Or an American cat fitted with a transmitter and an antenna in his tail so that he can spy on the Soviets? Or two donkeys who have a wedding, complete with music and a marriage feast? These stories and many more - all quite strange, all very true - come from reports in newspapers around the world and are collected in this volume with a lot to say about the behaviour of animals and especially humans - who may well be the strangest animals of all.
