Hunter Becomes The Hunted! Black Rhino Hunting Permit Auction Winner's Family Threatened!!

Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadFamilyScary!EndangeredRhinosHunting

Hunter who won endangered black rhino hunting permit auction is having his and his family's lives threatened!

Would you pay $350,000 to put your family's life in danger AND murder an endangered species??

Sounds kinda way ridiculous but that's pretty much what's going on for Corey Knowlton.

Knowlton paid $350,000 to the Dallas Safari Club Auction for a super rare permit to hunt an endangered black rhino.

Animal conservationists everywhere are freaking out that this hunting permit even exists.

Knowlton has tried to explain to his critics how letting him buy the permit has sent hundreds of thousands of dollars to a cause that will actually SAVE more black rhinos, but also how it's okay to kill one… as long as it's specific.

The Namibian government has apparently picked out specific rhinos that can and SHOULD be killed because they're not only too old to breed but they're also grumpy old men who pose an actual threat to healthy, young rhinos.

Puffin Population Rebounds All By Itself!

Filed under: AnglophiliaMama NatureScience!BirdsAmazing

Puffins are making a comeback!!

Puffins, super cute penguin looking birdies, were thought to be in real trouble, with dwindling numbers.

From 2003 to 2008, the puffin population dropped by about one third!!

So of course environmentalists were worried!

But it turns out that the population has made a real comeback all on it's own! They've turned their own fate around!

The puffin population on the UK's Farne Islands has made a serious recovery with a puffin boom, even though winters have been tough and brutal.

Why can't all species of animals just save themselves??

If only rhinos could take their own horn powder and start reproducing like rabbits, there'd be no issues.

Check out the video (above) to see these cutie puffins just puffining around their island.

Zebra Bites Zookeeper! Attack Literally Scares Nearby Gazelle To Death!

Filed under: Sad SadAttack!ZooEndangeredZebraGazelle

A zookeeper was attacked by a zebra so violently it literally scared a gazelle to death!!

Wow this is so crazy and pretty sad!!

A veteran zookeeper was attacked and bitten several times by a zebra at the National Zoo a few days ago.

The zookeeper was okay, but bleeding pretty badly (check out the blood covered zebra above, the red stain on his shoulders). The attack must've been intense.

All the commotion must've scared a young gazelle in an adjoining enclosure because he ran away super fast, sprinting headfirst into
