CW's Capture Equals Hunger Games Plus Tag…But Mostly Tag!

Filed under: TV NewsHunger GamesReality TV

The CW hoped that the ratings were ever in their favor last night.

The premiere of Capture was on Tuesday, a show which is essentially an enormous game of tag, but that's billed as the Hunger Games incarnate, except that no one dies and uh, there are literally no mutations! Say wha?! (Cue: sad trombone music)

However, the host of the show, Luke Tipple, CAN shut down zones of the enormous 4,000 acre arena, just like the Hunger Games Game Maker, and the contestants DO wear polymer onesies, just like the Hunger Games, but is it the Hunger Games? Not really.

It's like saying "hey, let's make the Hunger Games, take out all the violence, and deathly booby traps, and poisonous berries, and add the CW instead."

Whatevs! We'll probably be hooked with the show anyway, seeing how we have to wait until November for Catching Fire to come out!

Heck, CW, we'll volunteer…we'll volunteer as tribute!

Orphaned Baby Polar Bear Is Rescued!!!

Filed under: YouTubeSafetyAnimal RightsAwwwwwPolar Bear

If you cried after watching Bambi, you're going to need a lot of tissues before reading this story.

A sad hunter, who killed a baby polar bear's mother, carried the orphaned baby polar bear 40 miles through the Arctic Circle to safety.

Here's what the hunter said when he found the young cub. He recalls:

"I'm not going to hurt you, I'm going to take you home. Just don't bite me."

The local citizens LOVED the little polar bear, and lets be honest who wouldn't, and have named the white furry ball of cuteness - Kali.

Check out an amazing video of this adorable baby panda bear (above) !!

Dozens Of Turkeys Overrun Staten Island Community

Filed under: BirdsCrazzzzy

New York is a melting pot, where anyone is welcome to come and call it their home.

Unless you're a wild turkey.

Every year, residents of Ocean Breeze say sometimes it gets so packed with turkeys, they can't let their kids outside to play, let alone drive down the street.

Officials say about 100 turkeys wander the area.

Crazy.

The problem started in 1999 when a woman released her 9 turkeys, and they've been multiplying ever since.

Area residents are frustrated because nothing is being done about, also, city law protects wild turkeys from hunters, so there'll be no vigilante justice either.

Looks like the turkeys are there to stay.

We guess the residents and turkeys will just have to learn to coexist.

Save The Wolves, Idaho!

Filed under: Wolf

In a terrible turn of events, Idaho removed Northern Rockie wolves from their endangered species list.

The decision could mean a mass killing of these majestic creatures, considering that hunters will be allowed to conduct aerial hunts of the animals that could obliterate hundreds of packs at once.

The reason for the change came about when people in the area complained that the wolves were threatening their livestock and wanted the government to step in to help. This is what they chose to do.

Very sad. These poor creatures. Hopefully, the worst won't happen to them. Here's hoping.

Grizzly Bear Deaths Near Yellowstone On The Rise

Filed under: Sad SadBearGameHunting

grizzly-bear-deaths-rise-in-2010.jpg

Oh no! This is so sad!

Grizzly bear deaths near the Yellowstone region in Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho have risen to near record levels in 2010.

An estimated 75% of grizzle bears, which are protected animals, were killed or removed from the wild. Sources say that the deaths were blamed primarily on the grizzlies being pushed into inhabited areas where food is scarce, and where they become easily stalked by hunters.

In 2008, 79 Yellowstone grizzlies died or were removed, with only three of those deaths being natural.

"In general, if you were going to make a bet on whether a bear died because of people versus natural causes, it would be people," said Chuck Schwartz, a U.S. Geological Survey biologist who leads the multi-agency grizzly bear study team. "Eighty-five-plus percent of independent bears that die, die because of people," he added.

Hunting grizzly bears is still illegal, however at least 15 were killed this year by hunters.

This is terrible! We have to protect our wildlife!
