It's no secret that the city of Rio de Janeiro is ill-prepared for the Summer Olympics this week.

From human remains on its beaches, to contaminated water full of raw sewage, to sketchy police that kidnap travelers like something out of a Liam Neeson movie — the troubled country won't be the most glamorous host of the games in recent years.

And it looks like the city's olympic golf course is no exception, because the green is overrun with all kinds of wildlife!

Many of the world's top golfers have already tapped out of this year's games, but the competing athletes still have a lot to worry about on the course — including capybaras, mini crocodiles, monkeys, and boa constrictors!

Mutilated Body Parts Wash Ashore On Rio de Janeiro Beach… Just YARDS Away From Olympic Volleyball Courts!

We really hope this doesn't set the games up for failure…

Volleyball is usually one of the most anticipated events the Olympics have to offer thanks to the revealing athletic attire and beach-ready bodies… but the 2016 Summer Olympics may just bump the sport off the map.

That's because after a spiking number of other disasters — i.e. Juma the Jaguar being shot dead, Paralympian cyclist Liesl Tesch getting robbed at gunpoint, and a general fear of the Zika virus — Rio de Janiero just suffered its most grotesque setback yet.

According to reports, body parts were discovered on Copacabana Beach on Wednesday… just YARDS away from the Olympic Beach Volleyball Arena!

Apparently, a mutilated foot and a second unidentified piece of human remains were found by a runner, and while local police have no leads, this just serves as a another sad reminder of what we might be getting when the Olympics kick off on August 5.

Please stay safe if you're traveling down to Rio this Summer!

Juma The Jaguar Shot Dead By Soldiers After Rio Olympics Torch Ceremony

Filed under: OlympicsAnimal CrueltyJaguarViral: Animals

This is so awful!

A jaguar was shot dead in Manaus, Brazil on Monday after attempting to escape following a torch lighting ceremony en route to the Olympics in Rio.

17-year-old Juma was brought out of her military-run zoo habitat for the event, along with a sibling, because they are the mascots of Brazil's Olympic team.

When the torch passed by the zoo, handlers brought the cats out to be photographed. Shortly after, as she was being moved, Juma attempted to escape.

Soldiers tried to put her down with four tranquilizer darts, but they took too long to take effect. When Juma turned on one of the zoo's veterinarians, she was shot dead. Colonel Luiz Gustavo Evelyn said:

"To protect the handler, it was sacrificed."

The military says they are investigating the incident further.

RIP, Juma.

Missy Elliott Is Being Sued For Bailing On An Appearance To Promote TWO Concerts! Get The Deets!

The suit says Missy's no-show cost the concert booker a LOT of money!

Missy Elliott is caught in some legal troubles because she didn't Work It well enough to get people excited about a couple of her concerts!

That is, she didn't show up at all to the event that was supposed to promote two of her shows!

The papers say that in November 2012, the rapper was slotted to appear on Brazil's Rede Globo television network, so she could plug two upcoming performances in Rio de Janeiro and Porto Alegre.

But, the 44-year-old bailed on her TV spot.

And according to the docs, ticket sales ultimately did not do well, and it's completely because Missy never showed up to promote the gigs!

Jean Faustin, who was the one who booked her for the shows in the first place, said he had to cancel the concerts because the box office flopped.

So now, he's suing to get back the $75,000 deposit he paid her, and is also supposedly asking for interest! Woah!

The Lose Control artist hasn't commented on the controversy, so it'll be interesting to see if she can put her game down, flip it, and reverse it well enough to get out of this one!

Filed under: InspirationJohnny DeppAmber HeardCharity

It puts into perspective all that we take for granted!

On Thursday, Johnny Depp was in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to perform with his band The Hollywood Vampires at the Rock in Rio festival.

However, the 52-year-old and his wife Amber Heard took time out of their busy schedules to spread a little love and joy.

Teaming up with the Starkey Hearing Foundation, the actor and the 29-year-old handed out hearing aids to more than 200 deaf adults and children in the area.

The experience became extremely emotional for Heard who witnessed these individuals perceiving sound for the very first time in their lives.

In the (above) photo, the Magic Mike XXL star cried tears of joy with recipient Daniele Lopes.

What's even more miraculous is that some of the men and woman were then taken to Depp's show later that night and got to listen to music!

Again, for the first time ever!

We are completely touched by Johnny and Amber's charitable efforts, and we hope the donees are experiencing all the wonders that sound can bring!
