Yet another senseless animal death at the hands of humans…

A wild mountain goat in Alaska has died after jumping into the Pacific Ocean in an effort to avoid onlookers.

Apparently, the animal was walking around downtown Seward — a city completely surrounded by National Parks — on Saturday evening when people began crowding around for pictures.

Sensing danger, the goat started climbing down nearby rocks in order to escape, but after jumping into the harbor for safety, it was unable to leave the water and subsequently drowned.

While its death was completely avoidable, State Troopers used the tragic event as an opportunity to promote wildlife preservation, saying:

"It is imperative that wildlife is given adequate space to be able to leave a congested area like downtown Seward. People not giving the animal space and getting close to take photos resulted in a wild animal dying for no cause."

Such a shame

Rest in peace, little guy.

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

| Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadAnimal RightsLionsAnimal CrueltyWildlifeViral: Animals

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.

What a needlessly tragic loss of life…

A baby bison in Yellowstone National Park is now dead after some "good Samaritans" unknowingly isolated the calf from its herd last week.

Apparently, a father and son were visiting a stretch of park in Idaho when they noticed a newborn bison lying on the road.

In an effort to "save" the calf, the tourists proceeded to carry the animal to their SUV to "keep it warm," but unfortunately, authorities then had no way of locating the rest of his family.

Yellowstone public affairs specialist Charissa Reid spoke to People on Tuesday about their difficult decision to euthanize the little guy after some life-saving attempts, saying:

| Filed under: Film FlickersAlexander SkarsgårdWildlifeGorillaMargot Robbie

You can take the man out of the jungle…

But according to the latest trailer for The Legend of Tarzan, you can't take the jungle out of the man — as evidenced by the wild scenes featuring Alexander Skarsgård kicking some serious civilized ass!

Years after he left the jungles of Africa behind for a regular life as John Clayton III, Tarzan travels back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament — or so he thinks!

The newest trailer reveals that the jungle man is actually a pawn of evil mastermind Captain Leon Rom (Christoph Waltz), who ends up capturing his non-damsel wife (Margot Robbie).

But little do the bad guys know, Tarzan has some big forces of nature on his side — and unleashes stampedes and hordes of attacking gorillas on his enemies! Take that, civilization!

Ch-ch-check out the epic trailer (above) and go see The Legend of Tarzan in theaters July 1!

Your Jaws Nightmare Came To Life! Live Shark Found In Apartment Swimming Pool!

| Filed under: Scary!SharkWildlifeViral: Animals

no title

This is so scary — and could very well be the plotline for Jaws 5!

Last week, a woman in South Florida found a live five-foot blacktip shark in the pool of her condo complex!

According to reports, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers are still trying to figure out how exactly the shark got into the Mariner's Cay condominium pool.

The woman did tell officials she saw two young men running from the pool, which is close to the shoreline of the Intracoastal Waterway.

Thankfully, wildlife officials were able to remove the shark from the pool and brought it back to the ocean.

It's not clear if this was just a very poorly though-out prank, but thankfully the shark was spotted before any unsuspecting swimmers decided to take a dive!
