'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.

Juma The Jaguar Shot Dead By Soldiers After Rio Olympics Torch Ceremony

This is so awful!

A jaguar was shot dead in Manaus, Brazil on Monday after attempting to escape following a torch lighting ceremony en route to the Olympics in Rio.

17-year-old Juma was brought out of her military-run zoo habitat for the event, along with a sibling, because they are the mascots of Brazil's Olympic team.

When the torch passed by the zoo, handlers brought the cats out to be photographed. Shortly after, as she was being moved, Juma attempted to escape.

Soldiers tried to put her down with four tranquilizer darts, but they took too long to take effect. When Juma turned on one of the zoo's veterinarians, she was shot dead. Colonel Luiz Gustavo Evelyn said:

"To protect the handler, it was sacrificed."

The military says they are investigating the incident further.

RIP, Juma.
