Police Brutality Apparently Extends To The Animal Kingdom… Cops Could Lose Their Jobs Over Killing Of Helpless Groundhog

no title

This is becoming pretty par for the course…

Police in America took a break from killing unarmed black people and elderly volunteers last week when they decided to kill a groundhog during a golf tournament in upstate New York last weekend.

While some may argue they were exterminating a pest, it's actually against Frear Park Golf Course rules to kill the animals since they do not bother humans. And it's the way they mistreated the animal before killing it that has the department investigating…

According to eyewitnesses, Officer Tyler Sammon of Troy apparently chased the rodent on foot until the animal could no longer run. That's when he decided to get back into the cart and drive over the helpless animal.

Rensselaer Police Chief Rick Fusco called the killing "really bothersome."

Officer Mike Spath, Tyler's passenger in the cart, did not directly harm the creature, but we guess he's being viewed as an accessory. Both officers are now on paid administrative leave — the exact same punishment as the men who killed Alton Sterling and Mary Knowlton. Ugh…

Ch-ch-check out local news coverage of the disturbing incident (below)!!!

This story is as disgusting as it is tragic.

In what's just the latest in a series of never-ending violence against zoo animals, Pinky the Flamingo from Busch Gardens Tampa Bay was put down on Tuesday after she was randomly attacked by a park visitor.

According to witnesses, Joseph Anthony Corrao, 45, allegedly reached over Pinky's fence, grabbed her by the neck, and forcefully threw her to the ground at 6:45 p.m. EST… for no apparent reason!

While the Chilean dancing flamingo did not die upon impact, park veterinarians had no choice but to euthanize her due to her injuries being too severe.

The park released a statement remembering Pinky shortly after her death, saying:

Tyga Refuses To Pay Or Take Care Of His Former Pet Tiger!

no title

Even though he's named after one, Tyga SUCKS at keeping a tiger!

In case you missed it, in 2014, the rapper almost faced criminal charges for possessing an exotic animal. Ultimately, no charges were filed, and the animal was sent to a shelter.

Does the Rack City artist still care for the feline?! It turns out…


According to Lions, Tigers & Bears — a non-profit rescue facility — the cat (now known as Maverick) is completely taken care of WITHOUT any help from Kylie Jenner's boyfriend!

Founder and director Bobbi Brink says feeding Maverick costs more than $10K a year. This isn't even including vet costs and flea control. Without Tyga's help, the cat must depend on public donations to survive.

Poor kitty!

Kaavan The Elephant Is Finally Free After 30 YEARS In Chains!

no title

Look how happy he is simply to be swimming around!

If you've never heard of Kaavan the Elephant, then you're probably blissfully unaware that the 32-year-old Asian elephant has spent nearly all of the past 30 years locked in chains at the Murghazar Zoo in Islamabad, Pakistan.

Animal rights activists only just started fighting for Kaavan's freedom in 2015 after an American tourist in Pakistan learned about his captivity… but we're happy to say he'll no longer be living in pain.

That's because it was announced on Monday that the Pakistani Senate has ruled in favor of the Help Welfare Organization that the Capital Development Authority who house him must release the animal to a sanctuary to live out his remaining years with other elephants!

Kaavan's chains were initially removed in September of 2015 when tourist Samar Khan first started the petition, and she spoke to The Dodo about the AH-Mazing news on Monday, saying:

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

no title

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?

Mountain Goat Drowns After Humans Scare It Into Jumping In Ocean

no title

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.

Former K-9 Cop Now Linked To Deaths Of THREE Police Dogs… Including 2 Shootings!

no title

This is truly sickening.

An ex-cop who was already being investigated for the deaths of two K-9 unit dogs may have actually killed a third animal as well.

Former Cherokee County, Georgia school resource officer Dan Peabody was charged with animal cruelty last month when it was discovered that he left his 4-year-old Belgian Malinois to die in the backseat of his hot car.

Inca was found dead on June 10, nearly four years after a Yellow Lab named Dale was also reported dead by the officer.

Peabody, 50, originally claimed Dale had simply choked to death on a toy after five years of service back in 2012 before admitting to shooting the animal… but when police searched his Canton home following Inca's tragic death on Tuesday, they discovered remains of a third dog — Inca's 10-year-old grandmother!

Unfortunately, Dale's remains have yet to be found, but Dan is likely going to be charged for all three deaths.

Forensic veterinarians are now looking into the possibility of even more dead pets in Peabody's home, and while Inca, Dale, and the third dog didn't need to die, hopefully their losses will save other K-9s from similar fates.

Rest in peace, pups.
