Baby Bison Had To Be Put Down After Yellowstone Tourists Put It In Their Car To Keep It Warm

no title

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:

PETA Files An Official Complaint Against Justin Bieber's Dad For The Controversial Tiger Display At His Engagement Party!

PETA is NOT happy with Justin Bieber's dad Jeremy!

On Thursday, it was revealed that the animal rights organization submitted an official complaint to the Toronto Animal Services' Enforcement/Mobile Response unit in regards to a potentially unlawful exhibition of several exotic animals at a party thrown for the Sorry singer's father. Yikes!

Apparently, a tiger, lion or tiger cub, lemur, and camel were all present at the controversial bash. Eek!

According to the group's complaint, the city's law prohibits the possession of these kinds of animals — which means Mr. Bieber could be slapped with a fine up to $5,000. Well, that's not SO bad!

Brittany Peet, the organization's Deputy Director of Captive Animal Law Enforcement, shared:

AWFUL! Footage Shows Stressed SeaWorld Orca Banging Head Over And Over Against Enclosure!

no title

This is so infuriating!

An orca (AKA killer whale) at an aquatic attraction in the Canary Islands was captured on video in distress, banging its head against the enclosure as it tried to escape its small confinement.

Ric O'Barry's organization, Dolphin Project, captured the video (above) at Loro Parque, an attraction in the Spanish island territory just off the coast of Africa, and it shows some distressing moments.

The attraction apparently has six orca whales on premises, all of which are owned by SeaWorld. Four were sent there to breed, while one was born at the park, and the sixth was rescued from the wild.

It's that sixth whale — named Morgan — that O'Barry's activists believe is the one banging its head against the enclosure wall in the video.

Activists contend that she is stressed and scared in her enclosure, with one citing a study that observed her having trouble with a larger, more aggressive male orca that is affecting her quality of life:

Justin Bieber Slammed By PETA After Posing With Captive Tiger At His Dad's Engagement Party

Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber took a pause from his Purpose World Tour and partying with Drake to celebrate his dad's engagement on Saturday.

And what may have seemed like an innocent photo op with a Bengal tiger is receiving some heat from animal rights group PETA.

As we reported, Jeremy Bieber popped the question to longtime girlfriend Chelsey Rebelow back in February while vacationing in St. Barts — and the two celebrated the impending nuptials with an engagement party held at a private art show in Toronto.

Attendees included costumed superheroes, former boxing heavyweight Lennox Lewis, Canadian opera singer Meghan Lindsay, and of course, the large tiger (above).

We hear the 22-year-old graced attendees with a small performance while playing the piano.

But what seems to be getting the most attention is the fact that the Sorry singer hung out with the beautiful cat — who PETA claims comes from Bowmanville Zoo.

Yes, that zoo whose owner was just charged with

Courtney Stodden Lays In A Pool Of Blood Dressed As A Sexy Mouse To Protest PetSmart's Allegedly Cruel Pet Trade

Courtney Stodden

Courtney Stodden is "dying" for people to stop buying live animals from PetSmart.

The 21-year-old dressed up as a sexy (dead) mouse on Thursday and joined PETA in an El Lay protest against the pet store's allegedly cruel pet trade.

According to a 15-week PETA investigation, a PetSmart supplier has been accused of gassing animals in plastic bags and setting them aside "to die and waste away." Additionally, the organization says that small animals are being warehoused in plastic bins and even frozen alive.

This is so horrific if true!

Miz Stodden — who laid on the sidewalk in a pool of fake blood — said of the protest:

"It's heartbreaking to think that countless mice, rats, bunnies, and lizards are dying in filthy bins for PetSmart's stores. My friends at PETA and I urge everyone to refuse to shop anywhere that sells live animals!"

Doug Hutchison's bride took to her own Instagram to say:

Life Of Pi Animal Trainer Charged With Five Counts Of Animal Cruelty After Whipping Video Surfaces

no title

This story breaks our hearts, but at least there will be some justice here.

Back in December we showed you the upsetting video of Bowmanville Zoo owner Michael Hackenberger, who has provided animals for several productions including the award-winning Life Of Pi, allegedly striking a young Siberian tiger.

In the clip released by PETA, Hackenberger appears to be repeatedly lashing the large cat with a whip and then later explaining the most effective places to hit the animal. The animal trainer later denied PETA's "lies."

In new developments on Wednesday, the Ontario SPCA has charged the trainer with five counts of animal cruelty after thoroughly reviewing his zoo's practices.
