The presence of a bat flying through a Montreal hospital — yes, an actual real live bat — caused the shutdown of five operating rooms earlier this week, on September 29.

A spokesperson for Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital told MTL Blog that the bat flew into one operating room, causing the CIUSSS de l'Est-de-l'île-de-Montréal to immediately close four other closeby operating rooms in the otorhinolaryngology and ophthalmology departments.

The bat was discovered by employees, said Valérie Lafleur of the CIUSSS media relations department.

Last week someone stole a piglet statue from Bar Brutus. I believe the appropriate word is: Pignapped. The Montreal restaurant wrote on their Facebook page that they needed help to track down the Pignapper. If she did not return the precious piglet, they would publish her picture on their Facebook group. However if she did return it, there would be no consequences other than some friendly teasing.
