In this March, 2015 photo, members of a music video crew pose at Topanga Lookout in the Santa Monica Mountains with an upright piano they hauled up there in Calabasas, Calif. For a couple of days this week, a Southern California hilltop was alive with the sound of mystery. Hikers venturing to Topanga Lookout found a battered upright piano sitting on a graffiti-scrawled concrete slab with a panoramic view over the mountains between Calabasas and the Pacific Ocean. Turns out, the piano was used for a music video by Seattle-based artist Rachel Wong. The cinematographer, Michael Flotron, says he and four others used a dolly and rope to haul the 350-pound instrument a mile up the trail on Tuesday. After the shoot, it was too dark to get the piano back down. Flotron says people seem happy to leave it there. But if necessary, he’ll haul the piano back down.(AP Photo/Michael Flotron)CALABASAS, Calif. (AP) — For a couple of days this week, a Southern California hilltop was alive with the sound of — mystery.


In this March 26, 2015, image provided by Randall Brown of Multnomah County Animal Services, a pair of chickens, dyed pink, are photographed in Portland, Ore. The animals were picked up earlier this week running loose in the city's waterfront park. Multnomah County Animal Services says the owner, Bruce Whitman of Portland, told the agency he used food coloring, beet juice and Kool-Aid to dye the two birds, then released them for a while to "make people smile." Officials say they told Whitman about the dangers of releasing birds in public places. He was billed for the time the chickens were in the county's care.

FILE - This Nov. 19, 2009 photo shows a four-inch-long banana slug slithering into a hole on the Van Eck Oregon Forest near Burnt Woods, Ore. Farmers in Oregon's Willamette Valley hate the slugs, slimy mollusks that munch their way through crops. But as familiar as farmers are with the mollusks, they acknowledge they're often baffled. And answers to their questions have come, shall we say, sluggishly. Growers and researchers at a recent Oregon State University "Slug Summit" in Salem agreed that the pests are causing more problems these days. But they have no good explanation why that's so.
