We still have trouble believing that Paul Walker is really gone.
If you somehow haven't heard the awful news, Paul passed away after a gruesome car wreck.
Paul was taken from this world far too early. The world could've used another person like him.
He loved his fans, family and charitable organizations but our favorite part was his love for animals!!
Paul regularly shared pictures online of cute animals, whether it was reminiscing about a dog-centric movie he filmed (Eight Below), fostering a cute new puppy, hanging out with fellow nature lover Jean-Michel Cousteau (son of the famed Jaque Cousteau) or just posting random pics of tiny amphibians, he always had something beautiful to share.
He was a wonderful man, with a lot of love to give and the fact that he loved animals only went to show how caring and compassionate he was.
Paul will truly be missed!
Check out some pics (below) of the cute snaps he used to share.

Aww! This is so sad!
Elwood, who was crowned the world's ugliest dog in 2007, has sadly passed away. He was 8-years-old.
The canine's owner Karen Quigley said her adorably ugly pooch died on Thanksgiving morning after months of health problems, although the death was unexpected.
The Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix had become something of a cultural phenomenon after winning his ugliest dog crown in 2007.
Since then, the pooch has appeared at hundreds of events, and also helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for animal rescue organizations and other animal care groups.
In fact, Elwood's owner Karen Quigley wrote a children's book based on her puppy called Everyone Loves Elwood. Its message is that it's okay to
Well this just burst a magical Thanksgiving fantasy we had.
One of the best parts of Thanksgiving is when the President pardons two turkeys from having to be eaten.
Sure, when President Obama waves his magic hand, the turkeys are no longer on death row. Heck, they even move to George Washington's historic home of Mount Vernon.
But after that? They don't make it very long.
The problem is
This is just awful!
Whenever we saw that "No Animals Were Harmed" tag at the end of a movie, we felt confident that no animals suffered any sort of abuse.
But according to an internal email from American Humane Association (AHA) monitor Gina Johnson, who was on set during the live tiger scenes in Life of Pi, during one of the few scenes when a live tiger had to be used, the animal almost DIED!
Even though, Gina gave the film the "a-okay," that wasn't the case - and she even let it slip in a confidential email! Hmm, first you put a treasured living creature in harm's way and then you try to cover it up, and admit to malpractice in an email! SUCH A FLAWLESS HUMAN BEING.
They were filming a scene where the tiger was swimming in a giant tank and things went bad. According to an email from Gina:
Jewel is a big animal lover!
As in she really loves animals AND she loves BIG animals, like her horse Chance!!
So that makes it even sadder that she had to put him down!

Wow this is so crazy and pretty sad!!
A veteran zookeeper was attacked and bitten several times by a zebra at the National Zoo a few days ago.
The zookeeper was okay, but bleeding pretty badly (check out the blood covered zebra above, the red stain on his shoulders). The attack must've been intense.
All the commotion must've scared a young gazelle in an adjoining enclosure because he ran away super fast, sprinting headfirst into
We sometimes forget that even if an animal has lived in a zoo its entire life… they're still a wild animal.
They may look cute and cuddly and might even act that way sometimes but an animal is an animal and sometimes they just snap for no reason.
That seems to be the case at the Dallas Zoo because two lions killed a lioness for no reason at all!!
This past Sunday, a male lion attacked Johari, a 5-year-old female, biting her in the neck out of nowhere.
Before zookeepers could intervene, another male lion joined in and the two murdered Johari… right in front of zoo patrons!!
That's so awful! We really hope no little kids were watching!
Check out the video (above) to learn how it went down and find out what's going to happen to those murderous lions.
