Filed under: HealthZooOrangutan

smoking-orangutan-to-quit-copy.jpg

It took TEN YEARS but the Taru Jurug Zoo will finally get the smoking orangutan off cigs.

Tori is 15 years old but she's been smoking for a decade. Tourists would throw lit cigarettes at her and watch in stupidity awe as Tori puffed away.

Obama Admits To Eating Dogs, Snakes, And Grasshoppers In Book!

Ewwwww!!!!!!

President Obama had an…interesting childhood to say to the least.

After his parents divorced when he was two, Obama's mother married Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian student and the family moved to Jakarta.

That's when Obama's diet got VERY disturbing.

In his 1995 memoir, (and book on tape) Dreams from My Father, the POTUS admits to eating dog meat, snake meat, and fried grasshoppers!

Yuck!

We know this was a loooong time ago but let's keep these animals are OFF the menu!

KFC Thailand Apologizes For Insensitive Tsunami Ad

KFC Thailand

As they should!

It should have never happened in the first place, though!

KFC Thailand has had to do some damage control and apologize for posting a Facebook message that urged people to hurry up and order a bucket of chicken… during Wednesday's tsunami scare!

So basically as people were being told to evacuate from beaches, the company went ahead and said this:

"Let's hurry home and follow the earthquake news. And don't forget to order your favorite KFC menu."

That's extremely insensitive! Whoever thought that was a good idea — and then the person who gave permission to post it — should be fired. That's a no-brainer.

More than 8,000 people in Thailand died in the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami (230,000 in Indonesia), so you can see why people are so upset!

Indonesia's Biggest Zoo Is A Nightmare!

Filed under: Sad SadZooAnimal CrueltyGiraffe

terrible-indonesia-zoo.jpg

The tigers are starving, the nearly 200 pelicans can't even unfold their wings, they're so tightly packed in their enclosure.

A giraffe even recently died with a beach ball-sized clump of plastic food wrappers in its stomach.

This is all at Indonesia's largest zoo.

The breeding is uncontrolled, there isn't enough money to take proper care of the animals, and
