Is Animal Planet's Call Of The Wildman Drugging And Killing Animals For Ratings??

Filed under: Sad SadAnimal RightsAnimal CrueltyRaccoonZebraReality TV

Call of the Wildman may abuse animals

There are tons of nature reality shows out there.

And nature is unpredictable, and reality TV is super fake most of the time, so of course it'd make sense not every wild animal encounter on TV was actually that random, or wild.

Like on Animal Planet's show Call of the Wildman there are some disturbing reports claiming that the rescued animals are not only planted there by subcontracted handlers, drugs have even been used on them!

That's right, drugging animals just so they can be on TV easier!

A report by Mother Jones looking into the show said:

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:

Hunters Kill Rare 'Spirit Animal' Albino Moose! Ugh!

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:
