Remember The Dentist Who Killed Cecil The Lion? Someone Just Stole & Crashed His $61,000 Boat!

Hate thy neighbor.

It's with a heavy heart that we must report that the world lost yet another gorgeous creature this week… a boat belonging to Dr. Walter Palmer.

You may remember the infamous Minnesota dentist as the man who paid $55,000 to kill Cecil the Lion only to suffer zero legal consequences due to Zimbabwean hunting laws… but instant karma may have finally caught up to him.

That's because a neighbor near the good doctor's Florida vacation home just stole and crashed his $61,000 boat on Sunday!

Apparently, 26-year-old Andrew Derwin and a friend noticed that one of Walt's employees had the left the keys out in the open in his Marco Island backyard, and promptly swiped them for a breezy Summer joyride.

Unfortunately for the pair, Andrew crashed the boat later that afternoon — resulting in emergency first aid after the other passenger seriously injured himself on the boat's propeller!

The thief has a criminal history of 13 prior arrests and is currently being held on $10,000 bail, and we cannot wait to see this aquatic vessel-killer brought to justice to the fullest extent of the law!

Too bad he didn't just murder a manatee or something… probably would have gotten off with a warning. Right, Doc?

Justin Bieber Received Official Complaint From Toronto Animal Services For Those Controversial Pics With Exotic Cats

There's no doubt Justin Bieber loves to show off hanging out with exotic animals on Instagram — a hobby that has landed him in some pretty hot water!

You may recall back in April when the singer posed alongside a chained Bengal tiger at his father's engagement party (above), and then again in a picture posted a month later with a lion cub — and these are just two of the times in Toronto alone.

Well turns out the 22-year-old received a formal complaint from Toronto Animal Services back at the beginning of June stating that both of these instances violated a municipal code that bans the "keeping" of wild animals such as lions, tigers, and bears cougars in the city.

The notice of violation and request for compliance in the future, dated June 3, 2016, was obtained Thursday by PETA and can be viewed (below)!

Remembering Cecil The Lion A Year After His Tragic Death — Find Out Where His Cubs AND His Killer Are Now!

We can't believe it's been a year.

As you surely remember, Cecil the Lion was mercilessly killed by an American dentist at the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe on July 1, 2015.

Now, a year to the day later, we have some great news about the majestic wild animal that was taken too soon in honor of the anniversary of his death.

While Cecil's brother Jericho was initially thought to be dead, not only has he survived the entire year without the leader of the pride… but all three of his lionesses and all seven of his cubs are alive as well!

Unfortunately, not everyone is as excited about Cecil's family thriving — in fact, the lion's shooter Dr. Walter Palmer doesn't seem to care at all!

According to a Daily Mail report, the Minnesota dentist was actually spotted driving around Minneapolis in his brand new $120,000 Porsche Cayenne Turbo this week, smiling and laughing.

So sad that no one can even charge him with a crime after all this!

In just the past couple months, we've seen the slaughter of both Harambe the Gorilla and Juma the Jaguar, so there's clearly more work to do in regards to wildlife preservation.

Rest in peace, Cecil, Harambe, and Juma.

These Adorable Pics Of Two Gay Lions Will Melt Your Heart! #LionPride!

Lion King 2: Simba's Pride has never been more accurate.

Homosexuality has been documented in more than 500 different species across the planet, but it's still not something you see every day.

That's why recent photographs of two male African lions having sex have gone viral!

Video: Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard Tour Africa In Style

Photographer Nicole Cambré was on Safari at the end of March when her guide pointed out the two lions with manes "mating" — it is worth noting that female lions with manes do exist, but they are even more rare than homosexual behavior in the species.

Sure, this could just be one lion proving his dominance over another… but we're going to choose to believe they're boyfriends — just look how cute and cuddly they're getting!

Welcome to the pride, lions!
