***WARNING: GRAPHIC CASES OF ANIMAL CRUELTY BELOW***

What goes around, comes around!

We can't believe that we live in a world where humans feel the need to viciously murder other living creatures, and Cecil the Lion is just the latest case of animal cruelty in the news.

Walter Palmer, the American dentist who killed Cecil, may still be in hiding, but we're hoping that he will have to eventually face poaching charges in Zimbabwe once he resurfaces.

However, even though Walter has yet to face any immediate legal ramifications for his crime, you can take solace knowing that his vicious slaying has caused his Minnesotan dental practice to close.

***WARNING: Extremely Graphic Video Below***

What absolute filth.

Video of a pet store worker beating his animals is going viral, and it might just be the most grotesque thing we've ever seen.

It's absolutely vile, but luckily, Mexican citizens are protesting the Plaza Galerías where the store is located and the company itself has filed a complaint against the workers.

Additionally, one of the abusers was attacked by protesters when they recognized him from the disgusting clips…

We definitely don't condone violence, but getting punched in the face seems like very light punishment considering how terrible the videos are.

Check out the least disturbing video of the trio (below):

We feel like PETA is like a little kid trying to figure out which parent to ask for more ice cream. Who is more likely to satiate their sweet tooth… but for a pretty decent reason.

When PETA heard that Disney was remaking Dumbo, they asked that the studio change the film's ending.

The original Dumbo ends with the eponymous elephant becoming a hit circus act and everything ends happily!

Though, now we all know the circus isn't the best place for elephants. Heck, even Ringling Bros. has promised to get rid of their elephant acts by 2018!!

So, now that the Dumbo remake has director Tim Burton on board, PETA is asking him what they already asked Disney. PETA's Senior VP Lisa Lange wrote a letter to the director, that said, in part:
