It's no secret that the city of Rio de Janeiro is ill-prepared for the Summer Olympics this week.

From human remains on its beaches, to contaminated water full of raw sewage, to sketchy police that kidnap travelers like something out of a Liam Neeson movie — the troubled country won't be the most glamorous host of the games in recent years.

And it looks like the city's olympic golf course is no exception, because the green is overrun with all kinds of wildlife!

Many of the world's top golfers have already tapped out of this year's games, but the competing athletes still have a lot to worry about on the course — including capybaras, mini crocodiles, monkeys, and boa constrictors!

According to reports, the Barra da Tijuca-located course that will host olympic golf next Thursday rests in an upscale neighborhood sitting on the edge of the Marapendi nature reserve.

The course was constructed last year despite protests from environmentalists who argued

Disney Has Quietly Removed All Animated Crocodiles & Alligators From Theme Park Following Death Of 2-Year-Old

We still can't believe this tragic story actually happened at the happiest place on earth.

As you're surely aware, 2-year-old Lane Graves was killed by an alligator while wading in the water at Disney World's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa two weeks ago.

While the kid-friendly theme park has since added fences, signs, and even a net around the lagoon where Lane was dragged underwater, Disney is now doing even more to make families feel safe.

According to numerous firsthand accounts from fans, the House of Mouse has quietly wiped all traces of their animated alligators and crocodiles from the park.

We already knew that Jungle Cruise operators had removed a croc-inspired joke from the ride, but now we're hearing that characters like Louis from The Princess & The Frog, Tick Tock Croc from Peter Pan, and Brutus and Nero from The Rescuers are nowhere to be seen as well.

This does seem like the decent thing to do, at least while the Graves family is still in mourning.

With that said, we're hearing the real alligators inside Epcot's Living with the Land aren't going anywhere… which doesn't make much sense.

Do U think Disney is going overboard by removing any signs of the reptiles??

Jane Birkin Asks Hermes To Rename Her Namesake Bag After Seeing How Crocodiles Are Slaughtered For Their Skin — Read The Company's Response HERE!

| Filed under: PursesHermesCrocodiles

Jane Birkin doesn't want her name associated with the bag.

Jane Birkin wants her name to stop being associated with the famous Hermes handbag.

The iconic actress and singer saw gruesome footage of a crocodile being killed for its skin on a Texas farm, prompting her to ask that the French brand look into its practices.

She said:

"Having been alerted to the cruel practices endured by crocodiles during their slaughter for the production of Hermès bags carrying my name … I have asked Hermès Group to rename the Birkin until better practices responding to international norms can be implemented for the production of this bag."

Hermes responded with this statement:

"Jane Birkin has expressed her concerns regarding practices for slaughtering crocodiles. Her comments do not in any way influence the friendship and confidence that we have shared for many years. Hermès respects and shares her emotions and was also shocked by the images recently broadcast."

The company is also launching an investigation into the matter:

"An investigation is underway at the Texas farm which was implicated in the video. Any breach of rules will be rectified and sanctioned. Hermès specifies that this farm does not belong to them and that the crocodile skins supplied are not used for the fabrication of Birkin bags."

"Hermès imposes on its partners the highest standards in the ethical treatment of crocodiles. For more than 10 years, we have organized monthly visits to our suppliers. We control their practices and their conformity with slaughter standards established by veterinary experts and by the Fish and Wildlife (a federal American organization for the protection of nature) and with the rules established under the aegis of the U.N.O, by the Washington Convention of 1973 which defines the protection of endangered species.​"

The Birkin is probably the most famous and coveted bag in the world.

Prices for a crocodile skin purse can range up to astronomical amounts, like THIS ONE for $120,000.

So many celebrities have one that we've lost count.
