Strange, But True | 2 men use signs to spread happiness

NASHUA, New Hampshire (AP) – Two New Hampshire men are trying to spread some positivity in Nashua with their feel-good signs.

NH1 reports Greg Amaral and Wendell Walker have stood in downtown Nashua with signs carrying positive messages each weekend since Easter Sunday. They say their goal is to encourage people to be happy and follow their dreams.

Photographer Craig Michaud shared a picture of the pair on Facebook. Michaud tagged Mayor Jim Donchess, who later shared the post on his page.

Donchess appreciates Amaral and Walker's campaign. He says they're helping Nashua become "a city of kindness."

Amaral says they've seen "an outpouring of beautiful people" since they started their mission. The duo welcomes anyone who would like to join them.

Tiger reported running through streets of New York – or not

NEW YORK (AP) – A false report of a tiger in the streets of New York has caused a social media frenzy.

WNBC says the New York Police Department got a call around 8:30 a.m. Thursday about a tiger in Harlem.

People on Twitter described a notification from the Citizen app that said police were responding to unconfirmed reports of a loose tiger running around the street.

Shortly thereafter, police confirmed that there was indeed a wild-animal sighting.

It was a raccoon.
