American Humane Association Agent Lets It Slip That Life Of Pi Tiger ALMOST DIED During Filming!!!

American Humane Association agent lied about the safety of a tiger on the set of Life of Pi!!

This is just awful!

Whenever we saw that "No Animals Were Harmed" tag at the end of a movie, we felt confident that no animals suffered any sort of abuse.

But according to an internal email from American Humane Association (AHA) monitor Gina Johnson, who was on set during the live tiger scenes in Life of Pi, during one of the few scenes when a live tiger had to be used, the animal almost DIED!

Even though, Gina gave the film the "a-okay," that wasn't the case - and she even let it slip in a confidential email! Hmm, first you put a treasured living creature in harm's way and then you try to cover it up, and admit to malpractice in an email! SUCH A FLAWLESS HUMAN BEING.

They were filming a scene where the tiger was swimming in a giant tank and things went bad. According to an email from Gina:

National Zoo's Tiger Cubs Have A Swim Test

Filed under: SwimmingCuteness!ZooTiger Tiger

Ahhhh! Baby tiger cubs are so stankin' cute!!

We're so glad the government shutdown is over!

Because now we can watch cute baby tigers play around!

The Zoo's two Sumatran tiger cubs took a brisk swim the other day for their own safety.

It was part of a swim reliability test and it's super important!

Zoo keepers have to know that if one of the cubs falls into the pool, they can safely keep their head above the water and they can swim to shore on their own.

Do both cubs pass the test? Do they both drown, forcing the zoo to start over with new cubs??

Check out the video (above) to find out!!

Cute Chubby Puppy Meets Tiger For The First Time

Filed under: Cuteness!PuppyTiger TigerDog

There are few things cuter than puppies playing around with big animals… like tigers!!

This tiger had already had several companion dogs and this puppy needed to learn not to fear the tiger.

So the cuties met!

This is the first time this Caucasian Mountain Dog puppy is meeting a big cat and its so cute how the chubby little guy looks so happy to be meeting a new friend!

We'd do anything to be there hanging out with those fuzzy cuties! Seriously, that's the fuzziest tiger we've ever seen.

So amazing to watch a giant murder beast be all sweet and gentle with a puppy dog!

Check out the video (above) to see a chubby lil pupster meet a big, scary tiger!

Swimmer Sets Record With 15-Foot Shark Chasing Her!!

Filed under: Tech TalkSwimmingSharkAmazing

A swimmer set a record while a 15-foot tiger shark was tailing her!!

Meredith Novack is the first woman to swim the almost 20-mile round trip between the Hawaiian islands of Lanai and Maui.

Not only did she complete the swim, but she did it 44 minutes faster than the men's record!!

Oh, and she was being tailed by a 15-foot tiger shark the whole time!!!

The 37-year-old had no idea the monster was right behind her… because her crew didn't tell her!!

Though she was apparently glad they said nothing. She wanted to concentrate on the swim, and, besides, she felt protected because of her Shark Shield!!

What's Shark Shield? Their website defines it as:

"Two electrodes that emit electric waves, creating an elliptical-shaped field around a swimmer or diver."

This electrical field shield really bugs sharks and forces them to keep their distance.

Thank goodness for her Shark Shield or else that 15-footer might've had himself a tasty swimmer snack!

Though maybe if she knew that shark was behind her, she would've knocked another few minutes off that record! LOLz!

Tiger Had Surgery For Four-Pound Hairball!!

Filed under: HealthSurgeryTiger Tiger

A tiger in Tampa Bay, Florida had one heck of a tummy ache… he had a 4-pound hairball in his belly!

Ty, the 17-year-old Tiger, had to undergo an operation after ultrasounds showed he had a basketball sized obstruction in his stomach.

The staff at the Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation center realized something was wrong with Ty when he basically refused to eat for two weeks.

The founder of the center said:
