Over 500 Snakes & Rodents Rescued From San Antonio Home!

Ssssso Many Snakes!

Over 500 Snakes & Rodents Rescued From ONE HOME!

In what sounds like a segment on Fear Factor, animal control officials were forced to remove over 500 snakes and rodents from a San Antonio home this week.

According to The San Antonio Express-News, Animal Care Services removed 136 reticulated pythons and ball pythons, two of which were 10-footers, on Wednesday due to concerns about the animals’ living conditions. Over 400 rodents were also removed from the premises.

Investigators say the owner was breeding and selling the non venomous reptiles, but would not disclose how many snakes he had or what their living conditions were. This prompted authorities to get a search warrant and ultimately seize the animals.

Officers found snakes in cages and plastic tubs, some of which were stacked in a shed. 415 mice and rats that were being used as the snakes’ food source were also removed.

San Antonio’s animal ordinance does not have specific restrictions for non venomous snakes but does require the reptiles have access to fresh air, water, food, and shelter.

The owner must appear in court within 10 days to fight for custody. If Animal Care Services is granted custody, the organization will work with local rescue shelters and zoos to find placement for the snakes.

LAPD Investigating Death Of Sexually Abused Pit Bull

#JusticeForCargo

Pit Bull Died After Being Sexually Abused

We have seen a lot of cruel, disgusting behavior in our time on the Internet. This is… something else.

Last week, the police-founded dog rescue group Ghetto Rescue posted a heartbreaking story about a pit bull named Cargo who was found abused and despite hopes to the contrary, later died of her injuries.

Related: Just FYI, Donald Trump Apparently Hates Dogs…

Cargo was adopted on July 23 in Orange County and found two weeks later on the street with a rope tied around her neck, having suffered — and we can’t believe we’re writing this — sexual abuse.

Despite lack of obvious external injury, an exam showed a ruptured aorta, suggesting trauma to the chest area. There were also signs of vaginal trauma.

The sad story quickly went viral. And now the LAPD has taken up the case.

Detective Al Erkelens of the Animal Cruelty Task Force told the Orange County Register:

“There are two possible crimes, bestiality which is a misdemeanor, and intentional injury to the dog that was meant to inflict pain, suffering or death to the dog.”

We still can’t believe this is even a thing. But Det. Erkelens says:

“Sexual assaults with dogs does occur. Most cases are reported either because they are seen or someone tells someone about it.”

We hope they find this sicko and Cargo gets some justice.

Read the whole story from Ghetto Rescue (below):

Sad update, we really are having a difficult time writing this one. 💔 Cargo passed away about one hour ago, and we are in tears. We were all so hopeful, as were you. She was comfortable, and on pain medication. The only thing we can be thankful for is she did not die on the sidewalk alone. Other than her vaginal trauma nothing was obviously wrong. No scrapes or abrasions. When we got the desperate plea last night, GRFF gal D left home to pick up Precious Cargo. Although she was not walking D managed to lift her into her car and get her help. The Veterinary office was closed last night but employees left home and opened up to care for Cargo. Donors started chipping in for her treatment and foster offers were coming in. Thank you PCC. We asked for a necropsy to determine what exactly caused her suffering. She had no external injuries and none were seen in xray. While writing this post we were informed that her aorta was ruptured. Vet suspects trauma to the chest area. We know based on her sad demeanor she was mistreated in the short time she was out of the shelter. We are sorry but we can not reply to each individual comment on social media, but know we are reading your caring and passionate comments. We appreciate you and your fire! If you would like us to refund your donation please send us an email. We are going to pay her bill, pay for her to be cremated and we are taking a medical bully breed from the shelter this week in honor of Cargo. Cargo please rest in peace with all of our other special GRFF dogs. *She was chipped and had been adopted July 23rd from the Orange County Shelter. We contacted the person who was listed as the adopter but the person we reached out to is not the adopter. We will be contacting the OC shelter too. #grffpreciouscargo #RIP #sad #tears #abused #losangelesdogrescue #abc7eyewitness #grff #ghettorescue #dog #pibble #justiceforcargo

Ben Simmons & Kendall Jenner Duck Out On Cops After Her Dog Allegedly Bites Little Girl In Restaurant?

Ben Simmons & Kendall Jenner Duck Out On Cops After Her Dog Allegedly Bites Little Girl In Restaurant?

no title

UPDATE 8/6 3:22 P.M. EST: A source tells PerezHilton.com that once Kendall knew the girl was okay, she got up while the bill was being paid. Our source insists no one ‘vanished.’ No Police or EMT came to the scene, as the source says the dog never bit the girl.

UPDATE 8/6 3:04 P.M. EST: According to TMZ, “a source close to Kendall” says the dog, while startled by the child, never made contact with the girl. The source goes on to assert that Kendall didn’t leave until it was clear there was no physical injury.


Nothing worse than bad dog owners — and it’s almost never the dog’s fault, but always the oblivious/obtuse/un-aware owner who is the one causing problems.

To wit: Kendall Jenner is in some hot water right now after her Doberman Pinscher allegedly bit a little girl at an El Lay restaurant on Sunday morning.

Mother Orca Whale Who Went Viral After Mourning Calf’s Death By Carrying Baby Whale’s Body For Over A Week Is Now Getting Help From Family

Mother Orca Whale Who Went Viral After Mourning Calf’s Death By Carrying Baby Whale’s Body For Over A Week Is Now Getting Help From Family

no title

So, so sad…

Last month, the baby of an orca whale, known as J-35, died half an hour after its birth, according to the New York Times.

According to the CBC, the mother had been sparking worry that she might tire herself out after carrying her dead baby’s body for over a week. Now, members of her pod are taking turns balancing the baby killer whale’s carcass on their noses near San Juan Island, Washington.

The mother is currently on her tenth day of mourning.

Jenny Atkinson, director of the Whale Museum on San Juan Island, said:

“We do know her family is sharing the responsibility of caring for this calf, that she’s not always the one carrying it.”

Atkinson believes this could be the orcas’ version of a human wake or funeral.

“Ceremonies can go on for days to honor and mourn the loss of a loved one… I think that what you’re seeing is the depth of importance of this calf and the grief of the mother and the family.”

Unfortunately, the calf isn’t the only member of the 75-member family who is enduring a hardship.

According to ABC News, a 4-year-old female orca — known as J-50 — is so emaciated that federal biologists are now (more…)

It’s hard enough for celebrities to look after themselves, let alone the furry friends they take in on a whim!

That might be why so many stars have been called out for alleged animal mistreatment over the years.

Take Kylie Jenner, for example. The reality star was investigated by animal control in 2015 after fans noticed her Italian greyhound Bambi was looking alarmingly thin in her Snapchat videos.

Thankfully, Kylie was cleared of any neglect or mistreatment. But for some of these other celebs, things got kind of ruff…
