Back in July, Harry Styles was on tour with One Direction, and during their San Diego show, he let out a quick quip against SeaWorld– alluding to the animal abuse allegations that were raised in the documentary Blackfish.
The puppy, part of a litter of dogs that had been roaming around a yard at a home where police were serving a drug-related search warrant, was found in the pipe after the cops noticed two of its siblings dead, and two others in good health with their mother.
A plumbing company was called in addition to the Arizona Humane Society, and the plumbers eventually sent a small camera down the pipe, finding the puppy 23 feet deep!!
After nearly twelve hours on the job, though, the pup was rescued, and AHS spokeswoman Bretta Nelson was relieved at the very unique case:
Lisa and Ken are outspoken animal rights activists, and his passion really comes through in this video. Ch-ch-check out his (and Giggy's) emotional plea (below):
Lisa echoed her husband's sentiments, telling us exclusively:
"I cannot sleep at night knowing we are condoning this. And we are condoning it if we don't actively fight against it. They beat these poor animals and sever their limbs and inject adrenaline to get more tender meat. It's only been going on for a few years so it's not this ancient tradition we have to put up with. And we shouldn't."
They plan on holding a peaceful protest march to the L.A. Chinese consulate on October 4th, which also happens to be World Animal Day.
We support ending any cruel and barbaric behavior towards any animals. Stop Yulin Forever!
The dentist, who infamously shot Cecil the Lionlast month in Zimbabwe, has been out of the public eye ever since worldwide condemnation across the Internet and elsewhere pointed at him for his questionable hunting practices.
Now though, River Bluff Dental, the practice Palmer operates with another dentist and a staff of employees and assistants, has reopened — and staff has made a statement about their work:
Apparently, Palmer had a permit to hunt a black bear in a specific county in Wisconsin — only he ended up shooting and killing the animal more than 40 miles away in another county.
And when his hunting guides called him on it, Palmer attempted to buy them off, offering $20,000 to lie and say the bear was shot in a legal area. The guides didn't buy it, and they turned him in to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, who promptly handed down a fine and felony probation to the dentist.
And now, we've got the pictures of Palmer's illegal bear hunt. Check out the disturbing pics (below) but be warned — they are graphic:
