Second Giraffe On Death Row Is Getting Offers To Go To A Zoo To Be "Saved?" Where Should He Go??

Filed under: ZooCrazzzzyGiraffe

The Chechen President and two members of the Moscow Circus have offered to save the second Marius!

Ever since word got out that a second giraffe, who shares the same name as a previously murdered giraffe, was possibly going to be killed at a Danish zoo, people started going nuts.

All sorts of offers to save him started flooding in, along with threats and petitions to not kill the beautiful creature.

Jyllands Park Zoo, current host of Marius the giraffe (the living one), assured everyone that unless a female giraffe was brought in for breeding purposes, Marius would be safe.

But that still means if a female giraffe shows up, they're gonna kill the hell outta Marius.

Thankfully, the Chechen President, Ramzan Kadyrov, has offered to save the giraffe, saying:

Russia's Recently Captured Orcas Won't Go To Sochi After All, But Where They're Going Isn't Much Better!

Filed under: Sad SadOlympicsSnow SportsWhales

Russia's killer whales aren\'t going to be on display at Sochi after all!

We previously mentioned that Russian hunters had captured two wild orcas and they were going to be put on display during the Sochi Winter Games.

We also mentioned how freakin' awful that is and how was can't believe people are still treating whales this way.

Hasn't anyone in Russia seen Blackfish!?!

Well, apparently, they have. Or they have a heart at least, because it's reported that the orcas will NOT be on display during the Olympics!!

Hooray! The whales can go free now… right?

WRONG. The orcas were shipped to Moscow and instead of being shuttled over to Sochi, they're going to just stay in Moscow.

Seeing as how Moscow isn't the ocean, we're still not too happy.

Also there's the fact that the aquarium is "still in the process of being built," according to a whale conservationist with some inside knowledge.

We're glad they're not going to the Games but we wish they'd just RELEASE THOSE MAJESTIC CREATURES!

Sochi Kills Thousands Of Stray Dogs For Winter Olympics To "Clean Up The City!"

Filed under: Sad SadOlympicsAnimal RightsDogRescueDisgusting!Animal Cruelty

Sochi kills thousands of stray dogs for Winter Olympics cause they're just awful.

This isn't the first time we've heard of a stray dog genocide happening in an Eastern European country.

Sadly, it probably won't be the last either.

Russia doesn't have the right idea about a lot of things generally when it comes to rights - both human and animals rights.

That's why the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics are so controversial. Not only is the country not changing its ridiculous anti-gay laws, they're killing dogs.

Sochi officials announced they'd cull 2,000 strays cats and dogs in an effort to clean up the city.

People obviously flipped out and the city called it off, but unfortunately

Russian Librarian Cat Wears The Cutest Bow Tie!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueCuteness!Cat

Russian librarian cat wears super cute bow tie!!

Kuzya is a cat who lives in Russia.

There are tons of cats all over Russia, so what makes Kuzya special??

Kuzya is an assistant librarian at the Novorossiysk Library!

The cutest part about this kitty cat is that the lil feline wears a bow tie!!

There are restrictions about keeping animals in libraries but Kuzya literally got a "cat passport," which is a real thing in Russia.

We're not joking, there are signed documents in the cat's name. Ha!

So now Kuzya is an official assistant to the library!

We're not sure how much work he actually does, other than keeping the mice away.

He's super cute in his little bow tie, so he's an adorbz sight to see at least!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayDogAmazing

Gay rights dog!!

Way to take an incredible stance!

The president and CEO of the American Kennel Club (AKC), and the chairman of the board, have written an open letter, in hopes of having the 2016 World Dog Show moved out of Russia!

They want the show moved out of the country because they seriously disagree with Russia's ridiculous laws regarding homosexuality and transgendered individuals.

The letter reads:
