To reproduce:

wiki =  Feedzirra::Feed.fetch_and_parse "https://pl.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Specjalna:Ostatnie_zmiany&feed=atom"

=> "Wikipedia  - Ostatnie zmiany [pl]"

output error : unknown encoding ASCII-8BIT
=> ""

=> "Wikipedia  - Ostatnie zmiany [pl]"

Perhaps #sanitize should ensure that is working with UTF-8 (or should be fixed to work with other encodings).

also for sanitize_entries!

Since changing to ruby-1.9.3-p0 I get a load of those errors

Thanks for the report. I've confirmed that this continues to be an issue with the master branch and added it to the list of bugs to tackle for v0.2.0 release.
