The Biological Sciences Greenhouse at OSU has been fortunate to have multiple bloomings of the Titan Arum, aka, the corpse flower. They have its smaller but also smelly cousin, the Voodoo Lily. From its bruise-colored bloom that resembles a corpse, to its stench of rotting flesh, this tropical flower masks its beauty to attract its pollinators.
Coshocton Woman Dies After Dog Attack
Authorities say a Coshocton woman has died from injuries suffered last week when the family dog attacked her.
County sheriff’s reports and a hospital spokeswoman said 35-year-old Rachael Honabarger of Coshocton died Saturday at a Columbus hospital.
Coshocton’s dog warden said Honabarger was attacked Tuesday by the family’s dog, a 100-pound, 3-year-old German shepherd. She is believed to have suffered wounds to her neck.
A neighbor was credited with seeing Honabarger in distress, pulling the dog off her and performing first aid until emergency personnel arrived.
