The Humane Society hosted an art contest for apes, judged by THE Dr. Jane Goodall, and the winning

Talk about a life sentence!
Chief, a wolf-dog hybrid, was on death row after neighbors complained about his aggressive behavior.
Now, he'll be guarding death row!
A Louisiana judge signed an order for the pooch to join Louisiana's maximum security prison team.
The prison sits on an 18,000 acre farm, so Chief will have lots of room to roam and police.
And he has the perfect name for the job!
With Chief on duty, we wouldn't want to get on his bad side now!

Robert Pattinson was giving an interview where he was talking about how he can't compete with Taylor Lautner's abs.
He then went on to the cuter subject of his and Kristen Stewart's dog, Bear!
He said that they had a lot of down time during the shooting of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Parts 1 and 2.
"We got a dog when we were filming 'Breaking Dawn' as there was a lot of waiting around. We were in Louisiana, so we spent time training him there."
That's so sweet!
Can't U just picture the two of them training their cute doggy together on set? Holding hands, making Bear roll over.
We wanna be in Twilight!

It's a REAL LIFE CHUPACABRA!! LOLZ!
Some Minnesota residents are sure they've found themselves a genuine mythical creature.
We don't believe it because we
don't believe in Chupacabras watch True Blood we know that stuff only happens in Louisiana.
This creepy piece of roadkill kinda looks like a dog to us. But on a closer inspection we saw his badger-like claws and random tuffs of dark hair scattered around his white body and have to agree the animal is a little mysterious!
Chupacabras, or "goat suckers," are described as something between a dog and a wolf, reportedly kill and suck the blood out of livestock.
We thin this might just be a carzy nastyass honey badger / dog half breed!
See a take a closer look at the roadkill below.

Tony, the 10-year-old Siberian Bengal tiger who's been kept in a small cage at the Tiger Truck Stop in Louisiana, for four years has finally been granted freedom!
On Friday, a District Judge granted the Animal Legal Defense Fund's (ALDF) request for a permanent injunction against the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF), preventing them from renewing the annual permit that allows the gas station owner to keep Tony after December 14.
Unbeknownst to Tony, he's garnered the attention of people around the world who have been fighting to have him freed from the concrete cell he's spent his entire life in.
