Howdy! It’s Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2016, and I’m here with your helping of the Morning Scoop. (Subscribe here to get the Scoop in your inbox because it’s finally feeling like fall.)

What You Need to Know

• A veterinarian who killed a neighbor’s cat with a bow and arrow won’t be allowed to practice vet work for a year.

• Tulare police need help locating this missing teen, so keep your eyes peeled.

• Las Vegas took another big step toward maybe-probably acquiring the Oakland Raiders. They want that team badly, you guys.

• Police in Florida are stumped by a particularly unusual case, so get your deerstalkers on, amateur Sherlocks, and see if you can solve this one.

• There’s going to be more of this tonight, so start drinking now.

• Remember, kids: Friends don’t let friends make stupid clown-tinged threats.

What You Want to Know

• Kim Kardashian’s husband will return to Fresno to say a lot of words and maybe perform some songs.

• Leon Panetta will speak on partisan divide during a San Joaquin Valley Town Hall lecture series this morning. It’s probably too late for you to go, so why am I telling you this? So you make sure you don’t miss the next lecture in the series.

• I love pumpkins and will post any pumpkin story I come across from now until Christmas season starts, so settle in.

• The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame should change its name, or maybe I’m confused about what ‘rock and roll’ is.

What You Wish You Didn’t Know

• If you teach a chimpanzee to smoke cigarettes, you shouldn’t be allowed to be a zoo anymore.

• And finally, what’s worse: people who mistreat animals or people who mistreat old people?

Happy Wednesday, everyone! The answer to that last question was: “Tie, definitely.”
