Cecil The Lion's Bones Will Be Used To Make An Anti-Poaching Memorial

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadLionsAnimal CrueltyViral: News

Cecil the Lion's death will not be in vain.

In the past couple days there has been a ton of international outrage over the death of Cecil The Lion, a beloved big cat that was killed by a U.S. hunter in Zimbabwe.

But it appears Cecil's death wont be in vain, as local officials are saying his bones will be used to create an anti-poaching memorial.

Johnny Rodrigues of the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force recently revealed plans to place the memorial in Hwange National Park in hopes of raising awareness about the perils of poaching.

Cecil's body is currently out in the open so vultures and other carnivores can make use of all of the meat before they decide to build the memorial.

We can't wait to see the final result and it's amazing to know that this beautiful creature's death isn't going to waste.

Minnesota Dentist Spent $50,000 To Murder One Of Africa's Most Famous Lions! Now He's On The Run!!

no title

This is absolutely disgusting.

Police are looking for an American dentist who spent $50,000 to kill one of Zimbabwe's most famous lions!

Earlier this month, Cecil the lion was beheaded and skinned after Walter James Palmer, a dentist from Minnesota, paid to shoot and kill the beloved creature with a bow and arrow.

Conservation groups were outraged after learning the 13-year-old animal was murdered on July 1 in Hwange National Park — partly because Cecil was lured out of the park and shot.

Johnny Rodrigues, the head of Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force explained that Cecil seemingly enjoyed human contact, saying:

"He never bothered anybody. He was one of the most beautiful animals to look at."

A spokesperson for Palmer said that the hunter admits he may have shot the lion, explaining:

no title

***WARNING: Extremely Graphic Video Below***

What absolute filth.

Video of a pet store worker beating his animals is going viral, and it might just be the most grotesque thing we've ever seen.

Employees at Maskota Pet Store in Pachuca, Mexico were featured in three separate videos where they can be seen slapping chihuahuas and actually crushing a hamster to death.

It's absolutely vile, but luckily, Mexican citizens are protesting the Plaza Galerías where the store is located and the company itself has filed a complaint against the workers.

Additionally, one of the abusers was attacked by protesters when they recognized him from the disgusting clips…

We definitely don't condone violence, but getting punched in the face seems like very light punishment considering how terrible the videos are.

Check out the least disturbing video of the trio (below):

Ryan Gosling Demands Cage-Free Eggs From Costco After Seeing 'Abhorrent' Investigative Footage! Read His Passionate Plea HERE!

no title

Hey, chicks… Ryan Gosling is here to help.

Earlier this month, The Humane Society revealed extreme animal cruelty by one of Costco's primary egg suppliers in an investigative video report.

Naturally, the shocking video sparked public outrage.

And this morning RyGos lent his support with a passionate letter to the corporation, writing:

"Video footage revealed abhorrent cruelty including rows upon rows of birds confined in filth-laden cages with the mummified corpses of their cage-mates —eating, sleeping, defecating, and laying eggs on top of dead birds — and hens' wings, legs, and necks trapped in the corroded wires of their battery cages."

The "appalling" footage reveals that chickens spend their entire lives on the space of an iPad, many times sharing a cage with a dead chicken corpse.

But the worst part is Costco's misleading packaging. Gosling continued:

"It is appalling that Costco has been selling these eggs with deceptive labeling on cartons featuring graphics of birds living out in a green pasture. You're already eliminating cages for veal calves and pigs — don't you feel that chickens also deserve the same mercy?"

The Notebook star concluded the message with a call for action:

"So many corporations are meeting public demand for more humane products and transparency in the food chain. I sincerely hope that Costco will set plans now to go completely cage-free for its eggs."

While Costco has yet to respond to the letter, we applaud the actor speaking out for those who cannot!
