This isn't just inhumane; it's inhuman.

In the first known European case of poaching from a zoo, a rhinoceros named Vince was brutally murdered in his enclosure at Parc Zoologique de Thoiry's African Animal Park Reserve, near Paris.

Poachers apparently broke into the zoo and shot the white rhino three times in the head before cutting off one of its horns with a chainsaw. The other horn was only partially cut, leading investigators to believe the criminals may have been interrupted.

In a Facebook statement, Thoiry gave details on the tragedy:

Disgusting! Beloved Hippo Gustavito Beaten To Death In El Salvador Zoo!

no title

Gustavito the Hippo was a beloved denizen of El Salvador's National Zoological Park for more than 12 years, ever since he was just three years old.

And he was taken away in just one act of cruelty.

In one of the most shocking crimes we've heard of in some time, unknown assailants broke into his enclosure on Wednesday night and beat him with sharp and blunt objects.

On Thursday, the zoo staff noticed Gustavito's unusually sluggish behavior and took him to veterinarians, who found "bruises, lacerations on the head and body, cramps and abdominal pain."

They also found stab wounds on his cheeks that may have been from an ice pick and additional injuries inside his mouth — which they believe show Gustavito was trying to defend himself.

Despite the best efforts of medical staff, Gustavito died on Sunday, leaving a country to mourn on Twitter:

Nope. Nope. Nope.

A body artist in Russia, who goes by just the name Aleksandr, is under fire for a video that surfaced online of him drugging and tattooing his hairless pet Sphynx cat. Poor thing!

According to The Sun, Aleksandr admitted to giving the kitty (named Demon) an anesthetic so that he could "stand the pain" of the ink needle — and that he knows he might've been in the wrong.

A Dog's Purpose Crashes Hard At The Box Office As M. Night Shyamalan's Split Keeps The Top Spot!

no title

What could have been a cute movie tugging at your heart strings has turned into a controversial little flick that just isn't connecting with viewers at the box office.

A Dog's Purpose, mired in controversy over the film's mistreatment of dogs on set while shooting, came in far behind expectations this weekend at the box office, debuting to just $18.3 million from a little more than 3,000 theaters across North America.

In its place, Split — a sleeper hit directed by M. Night Shyamalan — came in first for the second straight weekend, taking in $26.3 million over the last three days and rising up to a two-week domestic total of about $78 million.

It's a good winner for Split, even if the other films opening this week were fairly light, but the real story here centers on A Dog's Purpose (pictured, above), and the Gavin Polone-produced flick that has been rocked after animal abuse allegations.

From a financial standpoint, A Dog's Purpose cost just $22 million to make, so it's still on track to get its money back and the financials are good — but the social damage done to what should have been a very popular, family-friendly feature film, cannot be understated.

Nevertheless,

We were shocked by the behind-the-scenes video of a scared dog being forced into churning water on the set of the upcoming film A Dog's Purpose.

And according to Ellen DeGeneres, so was she. But she's surprisingly still on the movie's side!

On Monday's show, the beloved host had star Dennis Quaid on to talk about the movie, which she said she absolutely loved. But she also took a moment to address the (probably abused) elephant in the room, asking the Parent Trap star to comment on the controversy.

Dennis talked about his own experience on set, which sounded a far cry different from the second unit video, saying:
