Joe Jackson Invests In Five-Star Hotel And Amusement Park…In Vietnam

joe jackson invests in vietnam amusement park and hotel

Is it just us, or is this kind of strange?

Back in December, we were pretty skeptical about Joe Jackson's persistent efforts to pursue the wrongful death lawsuit against Dr. Conrad Murray. Seemed to us like Joe was looking for a pay day.

Now, it appears that we've learned why Joe might have wanted some extra $$$ - to invest in a five-star hotel/amusement park in Vietnam called Happyland.

That's right, folks. Jackson invested in the $2 million billion 1,000-room hotel/amusement park in the southern Long An province in Vietnam, which is scheduled to be completed in 2014.

Here's what Jackson had to say about it:

"I like discovering different cultures in the world. I like this project the most because it is located in a beautiful cultural and natural space."

We certainly can appreciate the desire to discover different cultures, but when Joe Jackson originally filed the wrongful death lawsuit on Michael's behalf, he never stated that the money would be going towards an amusement park and fancy hotel…in Vietnam.

Weird.

10,000 Cattle Die In Vietnam!

Filed under: Scary!Danger!Cow

Mass cattle die in Vietnam

Earlier this week we reported news of 200 cows dying in Wisconsin, but now in other weird, disturbing dead animal news 10,000 cattle have died nationwide in Vietnam!

Vietnam government is saying the deaths are due to an intense winter and harsh weather conditions.

Our question is, if the weather is so harsh how come only cattle died? Why not other animals?

Lately, we've had a lot more questions than answers about all these animals dying and we hope we'll get some answers soon from our own government!

Thoughts???

Conservationists Are Outraged At Sale Of Tiger Paste In Vietnam

Filed under: EndangeredTiger Tiger

A conservation group in Vietnam is not happy at all after they found out that 6 pounds of tiger paste, that was confiscated from traffickers is being auctioned off.

Vietnam has banned the hunting or trafficking of tigers, since they are in jeopardy of extinction, however they still do allow its use in making traditional medicines.

The director of the conservation group said that a loophole was found in order to allow the sale of this paste. She explained, "We had recommended that the paste be destroyed to send a clear message to the public that the authorities do not encourage the consumption of wild animals' products."

We totally agree. The tigers need to be protected at all costs.

When will people realize that these tigers will become extinct if we don't help them??
