Boko Haram escapees tell horrors of kidnapping

276 girls were captured by Islamist group Boko Haram earlier this year in Northern Nigeria. The mass kidnapping drew international attention and sparked #BringBackourGirls, a viral topic that brought attention to the issue.

In a new report, Human Rights Watch details the forced marriages, sexual assault and violence the women and girls endured after being abducted from their classroom.

“When they wanted me to kill the first man, my body was shaking and I fell down on the ground. They forced me to get up and watch as they killed a second person,” said a survivor who was reportedly forced to accompany the militants on missions.

57 of the girls captured earlier this year have escaped and 219 are still missing, according to Human Rights Watch. The group estimates Boko Haram has kidnapped about 500 women and girls since 2009.

Sheriff's Office defends use of officers, armored vehicle

Marathon County authorities reportedly showed up to a 75-year-old man's home with two dozen officers and an armored vehicle, and now their method has controversy stirring in the Wisconsin community.

The vehicle and police presence were there to collect a civil judgment from Roger Hoeppner, who has since filed a lawsuit against his town as a result of the incident.

While many are questioning the display of force for a seemingly moderate situation, the Marathon County Sheriff's Office is defending their position. Officials told USA Today that the vehicle had no weapons attached and that they had a “longstanding problem” between Hoeppner and the town.

Lake Tahoe asks visitors to stop taking selfies with the bears

So many visitors to Lake Tahoe have attempted to take selfies with bears that wildlife officials have issued a statement requesting people keep a safe distance from the animals.

Rather than go the opposite direction, visitors have stopped to take selfies with the bears, an official told Mashable.

After a Lake Tahoe woman was recently attacked by a black bear, wildlife officers are again reminding people to stay on the trails and respect the wildlife.

Mashable composed a gallery of bear selfies across the world. Check it out here.
