This. I'm not an animal rights activist by any means, but bullfighting is fucking stupid. That asshole deserved it.

Somebody has to be the garbage man. A sad thing though,

in South Asia, the principle reason for the decline of vultures is the drug diclofenac, which was widely used as an anti-inflammatory agent for cattle in South Asia in the 1990s and is still used in some parts of the region. Vultures that feed on cattle carcasses also ingest the drug, which causes renal failure and death in the affected birds. As a result of the drug’s widespread use, the populations of many vulture species have declined by more than 95 percent on the Indian subcontinent, precipitating an ecological crisis. Populations elsewhere in Asia are so low that several species of vulture may go extinct unless vultures in Cambodia are saved

On that page that I linked to there are various places you can donate to help save the vultures. So it doesn't have to be sad, we can help fix it!~


The snapping turtle believes in you!

That's like a Megaman X boss name or something. Badass enough to be a robot terrorist too.

Wikipedia says:
Contrary to claims that Alligator Snapping Turtles possess the second strongest bite force of any animal, it has been recorded at 158 +/- 176.51 N (703±785.16 lbf)[dubious – discuss] [maybe 158 ± 18 kilograms-force (1,550 ± 180 N; 350 ± 40 lbf)] which is lower than several other species of turtle and at about the same level as humans.[6][7] Still, these turtles must be handled with extreme care

That being said, I would NEVER get my hand near one of these to test the theory.

edit: A macaw can take your finger off tho :)
