Actual Presidential Nominee Jill Stein Is Losing To 'Deez Nutz' In Polls — And Is Tied With Harambe The Gorilla

no title

We're so glad the electoral process is being taken seriously…

While the 2016 Presidential election has effectively come down to a race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, there are still some candidates who don't belong to either major party.

Unfortunately for said candidates… it doesn't look like Americans are paying them very much attention.

According to a survey released by Public Policy Polling on Tuesday, only 2 percent of voters would ever consider voting for Green Party nominee Jill Stein.

While that sounds bad enough on its own, that number ties Jill with

Caught On Camera: Dad Of The Year Helps Little Boy Climb Into The Rhino Enclosure At Dublin Zoo!

no title

Regardless of how your day's going… you're doing better than this guy!

It's been just over two months since Harambe the Gorilla was killed after a child fell into his habitat at the Cincinnati Zoo, but unfortunately, people still haven't learned from the accident.

In fact, a father at the Dublin Zoo is currently under scrutiny for helping his kid climb into the park's rhino exhibit!

Apparently, the adventurous father wanted to take a good picture of his son on Saturday, so he helped the VERY YOUNG boy over the fence — despite obvious warning signs against such an act.

Srsly?? Doesn't he realize he's endangering his child AND the animals??

The zoo is "reviewing" how the child could have possibly climbed over the fence… but it's literally just a four foot wire fence with wood planks holding it together, so we think we've solved this one.

Who do U think is really at fault here??

'RIP Taylor Swift' Mural Gets ANOTHER Facelift — Now It's Kanye West! And Another BIG Kim Kardashian Is About To Join Him…

no title

This is too funny!!

Although the wild feud between Taylor Swift and Kanye West may have died down a bit — well, for now, at least — somebody is STILL fighting over Swift's "memorial" graffiti tag, and the changes continue to be hilarious!

If you remember from two days ago, an Australian street artist named LushSux created a "memorial" to Swift on a wall to commemorate her notable feud with Yeezy.

Then, on Thursday we told you that the mural had already been changed to a gorilla from SpongeBob SquarePants and a reference not to Swift or 'Ye, but to Harambe, the Cincinnati Zoo gorilla killed in May after a three-year-old boy fell into his cage.

Now the mural has been defaced AGAIN — and the new picture is absolutely ridiculous!!

Ch-ch-check out the Instagram shot LushSux posted informing the world that, yes, his mural has AGAIN been defaced and altered… this time, as a shrine to "Haramye"!!!

There's even a video of the re-do, and it's set — very appropriately — to the Yeezy song that kicked off the entire feud (below):

'RIP Taylor Swift' Mural Gets A Creepy Face Lift To Become An Actual Memorial For Harambe The Gorilla — And SpongeBob SquarePants?

no title

Much better!

Earlier this week, Aussie street artist Lushsux shared an image of his faux "RIP Taylor Swift" mural that was made to memorialize the pop star's figurative death in the wake of her Famous feud with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

Shortly after it blew up on social media, TayTay's team contacted the artist with threats of legal action if the mural wasn't swiftly removed.

While it looks like the request was already complied, we're not sure the songstress will be satisfied — because "Taylor Smith" has turned into the bizarre hybrid creature "Taylor Gorilla SquarePants."

On Thursday, the artist shared an image of the updated mural on Instagram featuring a cartoon gorilla face seen in SpongeBob SquarePants painted over Tay's face — with the caption changed to: "In loving memory of Harambe, 1988-2016."

Harambe the gorilla became a popular cultural reference earlier this year after being killed at the Cincinnati Zoo on May 28 when a young child fell into its enclosure.

This time, however, Lushsux isn't taking credit for the work.

In the caption of his post, the artist asked "WHO DID THIS?!?!" — but of course, that could just be his way of avoiding more legal threats from Team Swifty:

'World's Saddest Polar Bear' Arturo Dies After 22 Years In Unbearable Living Conditions

no title

A sad tale with a tragic end.

Arturo, often called "the world's saddest polar bear", has passed away after being trapped inside an unbearable Argentinian zoo for 22 years.

According to reports, the 30-year-old animal died at Mendoza Zoological Park on Sunday due to unknown circumstances… but surely the 100+°F South American heat didn't help the creature naturally found in the North Pole.

Arturo had been the subject of numerous petitions from animal rights activists — including public protest from Cher herself — but sadly, the zoo never seemed to care about his well-being.

In fact, Assiniboine Park Zoo in Canada tried to take the creature away from his captors, but Mendoza lacked even the basic medical information necessary to guarantee safe transport.

To give you an image of what he endured, the wild animal's enclosure only featured a 20-inch pool and solid concrete slabs… but things took an even more depressing turn in 2012 when Arturo's cellmate Pelusa died from cancer.

How many more animals need to die in order to teach the world to treat our furry friends better??

Rest in peace, Arturo.

Remembering Cecil The Lion A Year After His Tragic Death — Find Out Where His Cubs AND His Killer Are Now!

no title

We can't believe it's been a year.

As you surely remember, Cecil the Lion was mercilessly killed by an American dentist at the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe on July 1, 2015.

Now, a year to the day later, we have some great news about the majestic wild animal that was taken too soon in honor of the anniversary of his death.

While Cecil's brother Jericho was initially thought to be dead, not only has he survived the entire year without the leader of the pride… but all three of his lionesses and all seven of his cubs are alive as well!

Unfortunately, not everyone is as excited about Cecil's family thriving — in fact, the lion's shooter Dr. Walter Palmer doesn't seem to care at all!

According to a Daily Mail report, the Minnesota dentist was actually spotted driving around Minneapolis in his brand new $120,000 Porsche Cayenne Turbo this week, smiling and laughing.

So sad that no one can even charge him with a crime after all this!

In just the past couple months, we've seen the slaughter of both Harambe the Gorilla and Juma the Jaguar, so there's clearly more work to do in regards to wildlife preservation.

Rest in peace, Cecil, Harambe, and Juma.

Cincinnati Zoo Builds Higher Barriers & Reopens Gorilla Exhibit After Harambe's Tragic Death

The zoo is improving its safety precautions after Harambe's death.

The Cincinnati Zoo's Gorilla World exhibit has reopened for the first time since the tragic death of Harambe the Gorilla.

Late last month, the 17-year-old silverback gorilla was shot and killed after a toddler fell into the enclosure. Officials said tranquilizing the animal would agitate it, so the best thing for the child's safety was to end the creature's life.

The beautiful primate's killing caused quite a bit of controversy, as people began to criticize the kid's parents, as well as the zoo's protocols.

And after a police investigation revealed the tiny tot's mother would not be charged over the incident, zoo director Thane Maynard has decided it's time open up the exhibit once again, telling Cincinnati.com:

"It's been a very difficult time, as you can imagine, with the loss of Harambe…. Losing Harambe is just like losing a family member. People that work at zoos care about their animals very much. And so we are leaning on each other and sticking together, but of course it is time to move on and to see gorillas again."

But he didn't just reopen Gorilla World. Mr. Maynard and his team put in a new, taller, barrier that has wood beams at the top and bottom, as well as netting in between.

The zoo has also installed three security cameras.

And even though Thane increased the enclosure's safety measures, he defended their old perimeter, saying:
