Animal Activists Get Chinese Circus Shut Down!

Filed under: Animal RightsHorsesLionsBearCircusAnimal Cruelty

Chinese circus shut down for animal cruelty!!

Believe it or not, China regulations ban animal performances in circuses.

Though that doesn't stop illegal circuses from still having them.

The Jinan Animal Carnival Festival had promotional materials that made it look like there were fire juggling bears, goat riding monkeys and tigers riding horses.

That all sounds ahmayzing for a cartoon or something but ridiculously dangerous and cruel in real life.

Animal rights activists estimate that hundreds of these illegal performances go on each year!

A member of an animal protection group in Asia that's been documenting the use of animals in shows said:

Filed under: CanadialandSad SadHuntingMoose

Hunters killed a spirit animal albino moose!!

Horrible!

Three hunters in Nova Scotia sadly murdered a rare albino moose, which is considered to be a spirit animal by the indigenous Mi'kmaq community.

The white moose has been living in the Belle Cote forest for many years and even though killing the spirit animal isn't illegal, it's still sad, and is considered blasphemous to the indigenous people.

…Especially considering the fact that the hunters posed pics gleefully with the dead animal and posted them on Facebook.

A Mi'kmaq hunter explained why their community would never harm the albino moose and it's importance, saying:

Over $5 Million In Endangered Species Contraband Seized In Hong Kong

Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadEndangeredHunting

Illegal Endangered Animal Contraband

Customs officials in Hong Kong have seized $5.3 million dollars worth of illegal ivory, rhino horns and leopard skins earlier this week.

What's crazy is this is only the second biggest bust this month!!

After being tipped off by mainland China customs officials, Hong Kong's port grabbed 1,120 ivory tusks, 13 rhino horns and five leopard skins.

Everything was hidden inside a container full of wood that originated in Nigeria.

The illegal ivory trade has literally doubled since 2007!!

We seriously cannot believe that people are so willing to senselessly kill such beautiful creatures.

Apparently no one has been arrested so we're hoping someone gets tracked down and tossed in the slammer because this is disgusting!!

Let's hope justice is served!

People Keep Illegally Riding Manatees!!

Filed under: Legal MattersAnimal CrueltyManatee

Manatees are beautiful, gentle creatures and are protected by law.

So it's totally illegal to touch them, let alone ride them.

But that's exactly what happened on the north side of Siesta Key in Florida.

This isn't the first time someone has tried to ride a manatee either.

Not only is it bad for the manatees and dangerous for people, it's illegal too!

You can be fined $500 or even spend 60 days in jail!!

So if you're in Florida and you see manatees, make sure not to disturb them by staying at least 100 feet away!

Check out the video (above) to see some cruel people riding a manatee.
