The animal hospital said he would dump food onto the field multiple times a week and that they had spoken to him multiple times.

Most recently, he left three boxes of animal crackers, a large bag of Doritos, two boxes of Cheese Nips and two bags of whole peanuts, the animal hospital said.

The animal hospital said the man "leaves the litter behind every single time and we clean it up."

The post said this was the first time peanuts were dumped, and the youngest alpaca overindulged.

The hospital said it did everything they could for him, even a blood transfusion from his father, but the young alpaca died nonetheless. 

The animal hospital said it "worked on him for 36 hours and just couldn't bring him back."

Employees with the animal hospital said they are now in fear for the rest of the herd, including the goats.

They said they will likely be moving them to a new location because they have no way to protect them from the man with the blue car.

New York Post reveals Aaron Hernandez's suicide notes

The letters former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez's wrote before he committed suicide last year were published Saturday by The New York Post.

>> Read more trending news 

Hernandez, who was serving a life sentence at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Lancaster, Massachusetts, penned letters to his lawyer, Jose Baez, 48, his fiancée Shayanna Jenkins, 29, and his now 5-year-old daughter Avielle Jenkins-Hernandez before taking his own life on April 19, 2017.

The 27-year-old former NFL star, who played three seasons with the Patriots before being arrested in 2016 for the murder of Odin Lloyd, left three notes written on ruled paper which revealed his final moments before he hanged himself inside his cell.

Jose Baez, Hernandez's lawyer and friend, documents the last year of his client's life in his upcoming book "Unnecessary Roughness: Inside the Trial and Final Days of Aaron Hernandez", set to be released on Tuesday.

Baez told the New York Post there was no indication in the letters that Hernandez had been contemplating suicide, saying, "Nothing in [it] suggests Aaron was thinking of killing himself. He talks about contacting artists in the future and that if I can’t help him, he’ll figure something out. It’s a sweet letter I’ll always cherish. That was the real Aaron.”

Hernandez mentions contacting artists such as Meek Mill and Jay-Z, who he says helped him through "tough times" in prison, saying he wanted to send his respects "to a few of the real ones out there."

To Baez, Hernandez wrote: 

Jose, What’s up, brotha? Well, I wrote this letter following my acquittal and wanted to voice how I felt and let some people whos(e) music helped me get through hard times, know that it did. Wrong or right -- who knows -- I just follow my natural instincts and how it guides me. Pros or cons, didn’t weigh them, but I’m sure you’ll let me know your view. Besides that, I want you to know you have me forever like you never understood and time will reveal that I’m not perfect but my love and loyalty is like you’ve never seen! I appreciate all your work, time, effort, and never let that slip your mind! In time, you will see how appreciated you are, as well as all the others equally! But never forget I will whoop your a** if you get too crazy ... haha! time. But we could grab a drink after. All jokes aside, I hope your son is well and all your loved ones! I need a favor -- If you have any contacts for any artists like Gates, Meek Mill, Ross, Jay, Game ... etc. I would like to send you letters so you can send to their information or whichever way you think best. I don’t want any media really getting into me, trying to just send my love to all the artists who got me through my tough times and sending my respect to a few of the real ones out there. So I think that’s the best idea through you. It’s something I have to do and I’d appreciate if you could do that for me, if possible! If not, I’ll figure something out. Well, get at me, love ya brother! Aaron.

In the note addressed to his daughter, Avielle, Hernandez says he wanted her to "never fear" him but to love him eternally. 

Avi, Daddy will never leave you! I’m entering to the timeless realm in which I can enter into any form at any time because everything that could happen or not happened I see all at once! Life is eternal -- believe!!!” Hernandez wrote in the letter, according to the Post. “Love, repent, and see me/yourself in everyone because that’s what the truth is! I’ll see you all in the heavens awaiting you all with the same love. Never fear me, but love me with all of you! Fear is the only separation between you and I! We are each other -- I/you -- you/me -- there’s no need to fear but what you do unto another will come back around!” Power of Now Conversations with God 1, 2, 3 Home with God Anuk Ausar “Metu Neter”

Baez speculates the last lines of the letter to Avielle are books he read while he was incarcerated, saying, "These are books that I am guessing meant something to him during his time in prison. It’s not uncommon for people who go through hard times to reach back into their faith. And he had people who supported him in his faith and (sent) books to him. He ordered books from the library.”

In his letter to Shayanna, Hernandez is just as ominous as he is in his letter to their daughter.

“I don’t believe he was in sound mind in doing this,” Baez said of Hernandez’s notes to his daughter and fiancée. “I have mixed emotions when I read these notes. In one context I’m reading them as his lawyer while investigating his death, but in another, he’s a young man I knew, liked and cared about. He had a serious brain disease. We need more awareness of it, or we’re going to see more suicides.”

Hernandez addresses the letter to Shayanna by calling her "Shay," a nickname Baez says others would refer to her as but never Hernandez, saying he usually called her "baby" or "babe."

In the letter, Hernandez asks Shayanna to look after Jano and Eddie, his cousin's young children whose mother passed away and mentions the couple's song, "I Knew I Loved You," by Savage Garden, something Baez says was very meaningful to his client.

The letter reads:

Shay,You have always been my soul-mate and I want you to love life and know I’m always with you. I told you what was coming indirectly! I love you so much and know [you] are an angel. We split into two to come change the world! Your characteristic is that of a true angel and the definition of God’s love! Tell my story fully but never think anything besides how much I love you. This was the supreme almighty's plan, not mine! I love you! Let Avi know how much I love her! Look after Jano and Eddie for me -- they are my boys (You’re Rich).I KNEW I LOVED YOU = SAVAGE GARDENNOT MUCH TIMEI’M BEING CALLED!JOHN 3:16 (“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”)I love you all equally! We are all each other! Don’t shed one tear for I am with all of you and never wasn’t! do not go back to living while worshipping false idols in which I warned you about!IT’S TIME!!!The Real Live Forever."

Shots fired after person goes to wrong address in New Hampshire

Shots were fired after an unknown person entered a home in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, after getting an invitation on social media and going to the wrong address, police said.

>> Read more trending news 

Portsmouth police responded after hearing gunshots and a resident reporting an unknown man had entered her home.

The caller said she and her partner found the man parked in a car on the street, leading to her partner firing a pistol at the car as it fled from the area.

"We had no idea what we were dealing with," Brenna Cavanaugh said. "We feared for our lives."

Cavanaugh said the intruder had gotten into his car, backed into a pole across the street and then sped toward her and her partner.

"We just saw a car coming at us at a very high rate of speed, and that's not something you can fend off with a fistfight,” she said. “The whole thing's pretty upsetting, it could have ended in a tragedy."

Portsmouth police said the person went into the home after getting an invitation to an event on social media, but he didn't have the right address.

"He got a text over social media to meet up with some friends and unfortunately he was just at the wrong house," a police spokesman said. "A lot of scared people and some frayed nerves, but other than that, no one was harmed by any of the bullets fired."

Nobody was injured during the altercation, and no charges have been filed at this point, police said.

Police said the dangerous situation could have ended much worse, and Cavanaugh agreed.

However, she said she doesn't regret the couple's decision to defend themselves. 

"In an instant, you need to make a life or death decision," Cavanaugh said. "He (her partner) made the right decision, and I would hope he would do it again because we didn’t know who was behind that wheel."

California mall offers prime parking spaces -- for a price

A California mall is offering prime parking spots for its customers on the weekends -- for a price.

>> Read more trending news 

On Aug. 11, the Vintage Faire Mall in Modesto introduced a paid parking program called Front & Center Parking at its busiest entrance, The Modesto Bee reported.

There are 200 parking spaces designated in the “assisted valet service” area of the mall, and customers can park all day for $5, the newspaper reported. 

It deviates from traditional valet service, because while the attendant takes the customer’s money, the driver parks his or her own car.

“Over Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, we’re typically at capacity for parking, or close to it,” Vintage Faire Mall Marketing Manager Annie Amies told the Bee. “We just wanted to make it more convenient to shoppers who maybe didn’t want to look around the parking lot for spaces. It’s another service and amenity we thought shoppers would enjoy.”

Handicapped and electric vehicle charging spaces will remain free, the Bee reported. The service will remain in effect through Dec. 31, and while few drivers have taken advantage, it may become more popular during the holiday shopping season.

“For today, I figured it would be good because it gets packed on the weekends,” shopper Teresa Souza told the Bee on Saturday. “It made things a lot easier.”

Some of the mall tenants were not happy with the arrangement.

“This used to be the busiest entrance at the mall and now there are 20 cars parked there,” said Jeff Klotz, who runs a kiosk inside the mall near the premium parking entrance.

The Modesto mall is owned by Macerich, which owns and operates major retail real estate properties. Another mall owned by Macerich, the Freehold Raceway Mall in New Jersey, opened a similar service in July, NJ.com reported.

Trump compares Mueller probe to 1950s McCarthyism

McCarthy, a U.S. senator from Wisconsin, spent nearly five years attempting to root out Communist sympathizers in the U.S. government. He was censured by the Senate after he attacked the Army during hearings in 1954.

Box office bomb: Kevin Spacey's new film takes in $126 on opening day

Kevin Spacey’s latest film was a box office dud on its opening day in theaters, taking in just $126, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The crime-drama “Billionaire Boys” opened in eight theaters in several states and earned an estimated $500 for the weekend after it was released via video on demand last month, Entertainment Weekly reported.

The movie is not being shown in large cities such as New York or Los Angeles, but it can be seen in Miami, New Orleans and Phoenix, Entertainment Weekly reported.

It was Spacey’s first film release since a series of sexual allegations were made last year against the Academy Award-winning actor, Newsweek reported. The $126 boils down to about 13 tickets, the magazine reported.

Spacey portrays real-life con artist Ron Levin in the film, which stars Ansel Elgort, Emma Roberts and Taron Egerton.

Spacey, 59, was fired from the Netflix series “House of Cards” last November.

Actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey of trying to force himself on Rapp during the 1980s, when Rapp was 14 and Spacey 26.

Soon afterward, a former television anchor accused Spacey of sexually assaulting her son. Twenty people who worked with Spacey at London’s Old Vic story also accused him of inappropriate behavior.

Mystery of infant found in Ohio phone booth in 1954 solved through DNA testing

The mystery surrounding a baby boy who was found in a telephone booth by bread delivery men in Ohio in January 1954 was solved 64 years later thanks to DNA testing, The Lancaster Eagle-Gazette reported. The man will be meeting his biological mother for the first time later this month, the newspaper reported.

>> Read more trending news 

Steve Dennis, 64, of Phoenix, said his birth certificate listed his place of birth in a telephone booth outside Yielky’s Drive-In near Lancaster, the Eagle-Gazette reported.

According to the Jan. 16, 1954, edition of the Eagle-Gazette, bread delivery men found a boy “believed to be between four and five weeks old” wrapped in blanket and inside a cardboard box at 7:30 a.m., with a bottle beside the infant.

Dennis said he first heard the story as a teen and never believed it. He does remember his adoptive parents, Stanley and Vivian Dennis, telling him he was adopted, the Eagle-Gazette reported.

"Luckily my parents told me early on that I was adopted, probably from the time I was three," he told the newspaper. "Most of that really had no impact on me. You hear it so much, it doesn’t faze you anymore.”

Dennis was adopted in February 1955 after being placed in a foster home. His family moved to Arizona when he was a child.

Dennis did not give his birth much thought until his daughters bought him an Ancestry.com DNA test, the Eagle-Gazette reported. He got his results back in January, along with a message from a man who said he was Dennis’ first cousin.

“He said 'I think I know who your mother is. We’ve heard throughout our lives that there’s a baby that we’re related to that was left in a telephone booth,'" Dennis told the Eagle-Gazette. "It was this like this hidden secret."

The newly found cousin connected Dennis to his half-sister, who lives in Baltimore. The woman said she had heard the phone booth story, too, and bought an Ancestry.com DNA to confirm the match.

“This deep dark secret of my biological mother, the kids had heard about this, but they weren’t sure if it’s true or not," Dennis told the Eagle-Gazette

The woman contacted Dennis’ biological mother, who is in her 80s and also lives in Baltimore.

“The mother has finally said she wants to meet with me," Dennis told the Eagle-Gazette. "Slowly week by week, she said 'I kind of remember.'”

Dennis said he was told his mother was 18 and forced to give up the infant by his father, the newspaper reported. He was born in a hospital in Kentucky and his parents were returning to Maryland through Ohio when the father took the baby and left him in a phone booth.

He has no other details about his biological father, the Eagle-Gazette reported. His mother married someone else and has two daughters, according to the newspaper. 

“It’s interesting. It’s not like earth-shattering or anything like that," said Dennis, who recently retired as a chiropractor. “My true parents, of course, were my adoptive parents. It would be almost impossible for me to think otherwise.”

Dennis said he is not sure what to expect if he meets his biological mother.

“I’d like to know my actual birthdate but, according to my sister, the mother said she doesn’t remember,” he told the Eagle-Gazette. “I’m not going to make a real big deal about of this. I’ll just take whatever she gives me and leave it at that. I mean you can’t hassle an 85-year-old woman … So whatever she feels comfortable saying to me, I’ll take. It’s more than I had before.”

Video shows Indianapolis store owner turning tables on thief

An Indianapolis store owner turned the tables on a man trying to rob his furniture store, pointing his weapon at the would-be thief, WXIN reported.

>> Read more trending news 

According to surveillance video released by the Indianapolis Metro Police Department, a man walked into the Decor Furniture store on July 5 and pulled a gun on owner Doyle Stinson, demanding money and ordering him to the back of the store, the Indianapolis Star reported. 

“I know you’ve got more money than that because this is a business,” Stinson, who pulled $10 out of his wallet to pay the man, said the suspect told him. “Once he gets me back to the back room that was a mistake. I go back here, I hit my silent alarm emergency button.”

Stinson told WXIN that he knew the man’s gun was not loaded, so he grabbed his own weapon.

“I knew when he pulled the hammer back on the automatic weapon there wasn’t a bullet in the chamber," Stinson told the television station. "I know the sound.”

Stinson then took aim with his gun, which was loaded, and the video shows the suspect fleeing the store, WXIN reported.

Stinson said he did not pull the trigger because he saw a boy in front of his store, and was concerned a stray bullet would hit him.

“If you’re shooting a 40 caliber, it’s going to go through him, through this merchandise, through that window, and what's beyond that window,” Stinson told WXIN. “He’s got a lot more to live than me. That’s true, that’s a little boy there.”

Instead, Stinson called 911 and briefly chased after the suspect before returning to his store.

The suspect remains at large, police said in a news release.

Oregon spectator injured by Kevin Stadler's shattered golf club

Spectators watching golf tournaments are always alert to errant balls flying into the crowd. A piece of a golf club is a different matter.

>> Read more trending news 

A spectator needed stitches Friday in Oregon when the head of Kevin Stadler’s golf club came loose and flew into the gallery at a Web.com Tour event, ESPN reported.

Stadler, 38, was playing in the WinCo Foods Portland Open at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club when he hit an errant tee shot at the 15th hole and slammed his 7-iron to the ground, The New York Post reported. The club head broke when it hit Stadler’s foot and flew into the crowd, hitting a spectator in the head, the newspaper reported.

The spectator needed six stitches, Web.com Tour rules official Orlando Pope told ESPN.

"It was a very freakish accident,'' Pope told ESPN on Saturday. “Kevin is devastated. He had trouble trying to finish the round. He was quite worried and felt so bad.”

Tournament officials did not release the name of the spectator. Stadler, the son of 1982 Masters champion Craig Stadler, missed the cut in the tournament. He was not available for comment, ESPN reported.

Shaun Micheel, who was playing in the same group as Stadler on Friday, posted about the incident on his Facebook account, according to ESPN.

“I had my head down but the club head flew behind me and hit a spectator to my right," Micheel wrote. “It's been awhile since I've seen so much blood. We stayed with him for about 15 minutes before the EMTs arrived. ...

“[Stadler] was absolutely shattered and we did our best to keep his spirits up. This was not done on purpose and we were astounded at the way the club was directed, but it just shows you how dangerous it is to throw or break clubs. Each of us in the group learned something today.”
