Beyonce's Murdered Animal Shoes Broken Down By Skin And Cost

beyonces shoes broken down by skin

We previously mentioned that Beyonce just teamed up with shoe customizer PMK to come up with the cruelest shoes imaginable.

The King Bey sneakers are made from exotic animal skins, including stingray, ostrich, calf hair, crocodile and anaconda!

When broken down, you can really see how needlessly cruel and expensive these shoes are.

Trace Cyrus TOPLESS In New PETA2 Ad!

Filed under: Music MinuteMiley CyrusPETAAnimal RightsAnimal CrueltyFur

trace-cyrus-in-new-peta2-ad.jpg

Trace Cyrus, the tatted up brother of Miley Cyrus, is in a new ad for PETA2!

Peta2 is peta's youth division and Trace is in their "Look Good in Your Own Skin, and Let Animals Keep Theirs" ads.

The ad says "Ink, Not Mink."

We get it! It's a reference to that fact that people shouldn't be wearing real fur because it's cruel and that Trace is covered in about a bajillion tattoos!

How much does that even cost?!

Letter From Ke$ha To Lady Gaga Faked, But Still True

Filed under: Sad SadLady GaGaKe$haAnimal CrueltyFur

kesha-lady-gaga-fur-fight-real.jpg

There is a letter going around the internet that is supposed to be from Ke$ha to Lady Gaga calling her out on wearing real fur.

This letter has been called "not legit" by Ke$ha's management team, saying she didn't write it, but that doesn't make it any less true.

Ke$ha LOOOOVES animals! She's the Humane Society's Global Ambassador!

The hoax (but still true) letter said:

"It upsets me to see you, a role model to many, especially those who are fashion forward would openly endorse such a cruel and inhumane practice. Animals are skinned and tortured for hours in order to make the fur that you, and other individuals of the upper class, lavishing wear around proudly."

The letter then begs Gaga to change her ways, saying:

"I can not begin to explain the amount of torture, harm and cruelty that is used when handling these animals that are ultimately killed for your pleasure. I hope this note has struck a chord with you and you strongly reconsider your decision to wear fur again."

Again, we know the letter is fake but everything it says still rings true.

Wearing fur is wrong and cruel and should not be done by ANYONE.

Especially someone others might consider a role model.

TAKE OFF THE FUR!

Couple Spends $13,000 On Plastic Surgery For Their Dog

Filed under: HealthDog

An English couple spent $13,000 on plastic surgery for their dog!

When we first started watching this we were ready to be disgusted with these people.

But we were proved wrong.

They spent the $13,000 on plastic surgery because their dog has a condition that causes extra skin to grow around his face and midsection so he couldn't see.

The tummy tuck and face lift has allowed their dog to finally live an easier, more normal doggy life.

We love happy endings.

Scientists Recreate Actual Dinosaur Skin

Filed under: Science!CrazzzzyDinosaur

Scientists have actually found the mummified remains of a Hadrosaur.

That means that some of its skin was actually intact!

So now using a gross, burnt, smashed chicken, scientists were somehow able to come up with a good idea for what the dinosaur's skin might have actually looked like.

Check out the above video to see them working on a computer rendering of a real life Hadrosaur.

Q&A: Skin Tags On Dogs

Filed under: Q&ADogDr. Patrick Mahaney

Any unknown lumps or bumps on our pet pooch can be worrisome.

A reader sent in a question to Dr. Patrick Mahaney about some skin tags they found on their dog, saying:

I have a question regarding my 7 year old Manchester Terrier Mix. Recently i've discovered these little flesh colored, mole like bumps on her back, ears, and legs. She's never had them before. They look just like skin tags. I tried tweezing them out, thinking it was a tick, but it was just her skin. She's super friendly and in the 7 years i've had her has never once tried to bite me, but when i tried to remove another one she yelped and then bit me. It's obviously painful to her and the last thing i want to do is hurt her, i was just curious as to what these skin tags were and what i should do about them.

To be more specific the bumps are not rounded or smooth, rather they stick out and look like a black head after you've popped it, only it's flesh colored and hard. Kind of looks like a raised scab, and also you can flick it around. Sorry if my description of it sounds stupid, i just have no other way of describing it. I hope you guys know what i'm talking about and can give me some answers as to what these bumps could be. I love my girl and i pray it isn't anything serious or life threathing. I hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks.

Dr. Patrick responded:

Thank you for your question about skin masses.

Skin masses can potentially have many underlying causes, some concerning and others. Skin masses can be cancerous (abnormal cells growing at a faster rate) or non-cancerous (such as a cyst, scar tissue, folliculitis, imbedded foreign body, etc). Cancerous skin masses may be benign (less likely to cause any significant illness) or malignant (more likely to spread and cause severe illness, even death).

Without seeing your dog in person and performing a physical exam (in the sate of CA, as that is where I am licensed), I cannot give a diagnosis or recommend treatment. Although, I can speculate based on your description of the masses in your seven year old dog. They sound most consistent with sebaceous adenoma (see Veterinary Partner).

It is best that you pursue an examination with your veterinarian. Pending their evaluation, removal of the masses and biopsy may be indicated. Especially if any are getting crusted, inflamed, infected, painful to the touch, or changing in shape/consistency. As many middle aged dogs also have underlying dental disease, perhaps her dental health can also be addressed (anesthetized teeth cleaning).

Good luck,
Dr PM

Another Reason For Us To Love Pigskin!

Filed under: HealthPig

Another Reason For Me To Love Pigskin!

A crunchy snak, football, and now boobies!!

Yes, scientist are pioneering new breast reconstruction technique for cancer patients, using pigskin.

When a cancer patient's breast undergoes reconstruction the implant doesn't um… age the same way her natural breast does.

In this new technique, normal implants are still used to rebuild the breast, but the pigskin graft works like an internal bra, cradling the implant and allowing some of the natural droop of a normal breast.

According to The Daily Mail 1,200 patients in the UK have had their breasts reconstructed in this way.

We hope they smell like bacon when they work out!!!
