The love for this man knows no boundaries.
Back in 2001, Robin Williams met Koko, a 43-year-old gorilla, and the two had a close encounter that left them both deeply moved.
Well, when the Gorilla Foundation in Northern California received the news of the actor's death earlier this week… Koko picked up on what happened and her reaction is incredibly heartbreaking.
When a baby rockhopper is born at the Shedd Aquarium, it's kind of a big deal.
Such a big deal, in fact, that they throw a whole party when the time comes to reveal the baby's gender!
The aquarium announced on Monday during a gender-reveal party that their youngest penguin is a
Remember when the Copenhagen Zoo killed the sh*t out of a healthy giraffe named Marius and then dismembered him in front of children?

A second zoo in Denmark, Jyllands Park Zoo, might have to euthanize one of their male giraffes!

Zoo Basel has lion cubs and they're so cute we're about to quit everything and go run away to live in their lion enclosure.
There are four young, male lion cubs running around the zoo because two of the zoo's female lions, Okoa and Uma each gave birth to two cubs.
The babies were born only four days apart. Zoo officials will eventually need to DNA test the cubs and mamas to figure out whose baby is whose.
What's nice to see is that the cubs are all raised together by the females of the pride, just like in the wild.
The cubs' father (just one father) Mbali, has actually stayed in the picture, even though the males are normally removed from the nurturing environment.
He must be a total sweetheart! No danger is posed to his babies.
These lil' cubbies are part of the European Endangered Species Programme and so they're super important to creating sustainable lion populations!
So great, so cute, so totes amazeballs! Go lions, go!!

New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has got the right idea!
The governor signed a bill that will allow local municipalities to enact and enforce their own laws regarding commercial dog breeding facilities, aka puppy mills.
The law not only allows them to regulate themselves, but also makes it easier to crack down harder on breeders than ever before in New York, which now means that pet dealers will be able to oversee how the pups are raised as far as health and safety conditions are concerned.
Local governments can even require that pet shops only sell dogs raised in a healthy, safe environment, basically denying puppy mills the ability to sell dogs.
The bill was supported not only by the Humane Society of the United States but also Lea Michele!!
Lea had literally written NY's governor a letter only a few days before he signed the new bill, writing:
