Minnesota Roadkill Or Legendary Chupacabra??

Minnesota Roadkill Or Chupacabra??

ZOMG!!

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 Gas Station Tiger, Gets His Freedom

tony the tiger wins freedom

Grrrrreat!

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.

Bald Eagle Found Decapitated

Filed under: Sad SadDisgusting!Animal CrueltyEagle

Bald Eagle found dead

Ugh! Just days after the amazing footage of our national bird hatching out of it's shell was caught on camera, another has fallen victim to a disgusting crime.

Authorities have found a bald eagle shot and beheaded in northeast Louisiana and are offering a $2,000 reward for information about the crime.

The wildlife officials believe the bird was shot several days before it was discovered in a ditch on Sunday.

What a stupid and senseless crime. If convicted for killing or beheading an endangered bald eagle, the perpitrator can be fined up to $250,000 along with two years in prison.

We hope someone comes forward with information and justice gets served.

Lone Louisiana Dolphin Survives Oil Spill

Filed under: TherapyRescueDolphinsWildlife

Louie The Dolphin

Louie, the only living dolphin collected off the coast of Louisiana after the worst oil spill in history, is doing great!

The young 2-year-old dolphin was found covered in oil with injuries sustained from another dolphin and an estimated 2% chance of survival.

He was transferred to the Audubon Aquatic Center in New Orleans where it took over 2 weeks for the little dolphin to show signs of improvement.

Louie was finally declared healthy after a 5-month period of rehabilitation which included 700 hours of care!

Michele Kelley, who oversees the rescue of stranded animals in Louisiana for the Audubon Aquatic Center, said:

"You cry. You shed tears. You put five months into this animal, his rehab and seeing him everyday and taking care of him. Then it's time for him to go and we know that it's the best thing for him."

Although healthy, it is still too risky to release the young dolphin into the wild, so he was transferred this week to the Dolphin Research Center in the Florida Keys which cares for rescued dolphins.

We're happy to hear Louie, the only surviving dolphin out of 62 found off the coast of Louisiana since the oil spill, is healthy and on the fast track to a full recovery!

The beautiful Ali Landry graces the cover of K-9 Magazine this month with her family's dog Toulouse!

They make a lovely pair if we say so ourselves!

In an interview for the magazine, Ali says her love of animals started when she was a kid because she grew up on a dairy farm in Louisiana, explaining:

"I was constantly surrounded by animals. We had everything: chickens, cows, birds, bulls, cats, dogs, and even a hamster."

That's quite a collection. We wish we had her childhood now!
