Named after Arnold Schwarzenegger, Arnie gained fame after photos of him with a lion cub made international headlines. Even after his moments in the spotlight, Arnie didn’t let fame go to his head. He continued in his role as a friend to all, greeting zoo guests (especially those who were carrying tasty treats), controlling pests, and cheering up anyone who was feeling down.
Linton Zoo staff described Arnie as a “real live Garfield” whose outstanding personality will be missed by not only the people who loved him, but by his many animal friends around the zoo - especially the animals that he babysat over the years. Rest in peace, Arnie.

Vacant Chicago Warehouse Burns, Becomes Frozen in Ice
On Tuesday evening, a vacant warehouse in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood caught fire. It took more than 200 firefighters the entire night to bring the blaze under control.
With Chicago facing some of the coldest temperatures of the season, the water used to battle the flames froze to the exterior of the building. The warehouse-turned-ice cube has attracted visitors from across the area, who have been documenting the uncommon sight through Instagram.
The five-alarm fire—the largest in Chicago since 2004—thankfully resulted in no injuries.
