Shepherd to sue over rocket fragment
by UPI

NOVOSIBIRSK, Russia - A southern Siberian shepherd plans to sue Russia for $40,000 in damages stemming from the fall of an 11-foot fragment of a space rocket into his yard.

Boris Urmatov of the Altai Republic wasn't hit but said the Feb. 5 incident frightened him and his children, Novosti reported.

The incident occurred after the launch of a Proton-M carrier rocket from the Baikonur space center leased by Russia in nearby Kazakhstan.
