Wild Foxes As House Pets??

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueFoxesPetsCrazzzzy

In frigid Siberia, the Russians have been performing an experiment in evolution.

They wanted to find out how wolves turned into dogs, so they started breeding foxes.

They selected the calmest, most docile foxes and bred them for years and years.

What happened?? The foxes became tame! So tame that they can actually be sold as exotic pets now!!

Each fox goes for about $8,000 and wealthy Americans looking for an interesting pet are scooping them up.

The foxes aren't wild animals, they're sweethearts!!

Check out the video (above) to see some domesticated foxes!

The tigers are starving, the nearly 200 pelicans can't even unfold their wings, they're so tightly packed in their enclosure.

A giraffe even recently died with a beach ball-sized clump of plastic food wrappers in its stomach.

This is all at Indonesia's largest zoo.

The breeding is uncontrolled, there isn't enough money to take proper care of the animals, and

Heidi Fleiss: Prostitutes to Parrots

Filed under: TV NewsParrot

Heidi Fleiss: Prostitutes to Parrots

OMG! Silliest. Show. Ever.

Animal Planet will air one-hour special Heidi Fleiss: Prostitutes to Parrots.

On Prostitutes to Parrots, Fleiss will juggle the difficulties of caring for twenty avian pals, the pressures of owning a laundromat, and the stress of her tenuous sobriety. Madam to Macaws is probably not as catchy a title, but it could have worked.

Heidi's passion for exotic birds was first documented in the 2008 documentary Heidi Fleiss: The Would-Be Madam of Crystal, and her need to be on reality TV was first documented on Celebrity Rehab in 2010.

It wouldn't surprise us if this became a regular series.
