The New South Wales, Australia police say Santa Claus recently stole a Mercedes Benz.

KOIN claims Jackson County, Oregon rancher Ted Birdseye is using an inflatable dancing man, like you see outside car dealerships, to keep wolves away from his livestock. He started using the lime-colored inflatable on Saturday after a pack of wolves attacked a calf. Ted says the inflatable looks like a dancing alien at night. The wolves are scared of the dancing man and are no longer bothering Ted’s livestock. But we also hear more people are dropping by to buy a car.
