Yeah, I love that the lions ate those a**holes.  Actually they DID eat their a**holes. ;D

The real big pisser is that the rhinos are being driven to extinction so a few mis-informed people can use their horns as an aphrodesiac, not knowing it is the same material as fingernails:

Unfortunately, it isn't a few people, but a WHOLE LOT of people, especially in Asia.  And it isn't just limited to fingernails... I mean rhino horn.  All kinds of wild animals are being killed to, or near to extinction, due to stupid, hocus-pocus.  Elephants, sharks, pangolins, tigers, buffalos, sun bears, musk deer, hawksbill sea turtles, Chinese alligators, and so many more for "decorative objects".  Then there is overfishing, habitat loss, pollution, noise...

I often think humans are a plague on the world.  How many are "enough"?  In just 200 years we went from less than 1 billion to 7 billion and on track for 11 billion by the end of this century.

I agree with you, Max.  In fact, I have a hard time disagreeing with just about any of your opinions (Except your opinion of the best color for the Concours!  I mean, silver is sooo boring!).  The sad truth is, it is in mankind’s nature to destroy himself.  It won’t happen in our lifetime, but eventually man will succeed in destroying this planet. 

How’s that for optimism?  Enjoy your weekend!!

Wisconsin man's plan to 'upskirt' women ruined after shoe camera explodes: police

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/06/30/wisconsin-mans-plan-to-upskirt-women-ruined-after-shoe-camera-explodes-police.html

A Wisconsin man who planned to use a “shoe camera” to capture footage under women’s skirts was injured when the camera battery exploded, the Madison Police Department said.

The man, a 32-year-old unidentified male, “purchased a shoe camera that he intended to use to take ‘upskirt’ videos of females,” according to a report from Madison Police Chief Michael Koval. Before the man was able to capture any footage, however, the camera battery exploded, injuring the man’s foot.      :rotflmao:

The incident reportedly occurred when he tested the camera at home, the Wisconsin State Journal reported. He was later treated for minor burns.

According to Koval, the man wanted to turn himself into police after he opened up to a clergyman about the incident. The clergyman, also unidentified, told the man to go to authorities and accompanied him to the police station.

Since no illicit video was taken, however, no action was taken against the man -- though authorities said they are still investigating.

In 2015, the Wisconsin State Assembly voted to make upskirting a felony.

Suspected rhino poacher is killed by an elephant and then eaten by lions in South Africa

https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/07/africa/south-africa-rhino-poacher-eaten/index.html

(CNN)Only a skull and a pair of trousers remained after a suspected rhino poacher was killed by an elephant and then eaten by lions in Kruger National Park, South African National Parks said.
The incident happened after the man entered the park with four others to target rhinos, according to a parks service statement released Friday.

His family were notified of his death late Tuesday by his fellow poachers, and a search party led by Kruger's regional manager, Don English, set out to recover the body. Rangers scoured on foot and police flew over the area, but due to failing light, it could not be found.

The search resumed Thursday morning and, with the help of added field rangers, what was left of his body was discovered.

"Indications found at the scene suggested that a pride of lions had devoured the remains leaving only a human skull and a pair of pants," the statement said.

Glenn Phillips, the managing executive of Kruger National Park, extended his condolences to the man's family.

"Entering Kruger National Park illegally and on foot is not wise, it holds many dangers and this incident is evidence of that," he warned. "It is very sad to see the daughters of the deceased mourning the loss of their father, and worse still, only being able to recover very little of his remains."

The four individuals who joined the illegal hunt were arrested Wednesday by the South African Police Service, and officers continue to investigate what happened.

The African rhino is targeted for its horn because of the belief among some who practice Eastern medicine that the horn has benefits as an aphrodisiac, making it more valuable than cocaine in parts of the world.

Of special concern is the black rhino, which is considered critically endangered after its population tumbled from about 65,000 to 1970 to 2,400 in 1995, according to Kruger National Park. Conservation efforts have since boosted their numbers, and the world's remaining 5,000 or so black rhinos live predominantly in South Africa, Namibia, Kenya and Zimbabwe.

In 2016, there were between 349 and 465 black rhinos living at Kruger and between 6,600 and 7,800 white rhinos, who also suffer from poaching, South Africa's Department of Environmental Affairs said.

Kruger is considered an intensive protection zone, and the government employs a range of resources to deter poaching, including aircraft, dogs, special rangers and an environmental crime investigation unit.

Of the 680 poaching and trafficking arrests made in 2016 by South Africa Police Services, 417 were in and around Kruger, the department said. In September, the department announced that six men -- including two syndicate leaders, two police officers and a former police officer -- had been arrested for trafficking in rhino horns.

One Lion crouching in the brush whispers to another:   Psssst.  See those poachers over there?  Wonder if they're any good to eat?

Other Lion replies:  I hear they taste a lot like chicken.

The suspect in Pinky the flamingo's death is struck by a truck and killed

https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/26/us/anthony-corrao-dies-trnd/index.html

The man who drew the ire of animal lovers after he was accused of causing the death of Pinky, a beloved Chilean flamingo at a Florida them park, has died.

Joseph Anthony Corrao, 48, was struck by a pickup as he crossed a road in Orlando, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Corrao was taken to a hospital, where he died June 5. The truck driver has not been cited, though authorities are investigating the incident.

Corrao was scheduled to go to trial in August on felony animal cruelty charges, according to court records.

In 2016, Corrao was visiting Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay with his family when he grabbed Pinky and threw her to the ground, nearly ripping one foot off, witnesses told police.

The 19-year-old flamenco-dancing bird received traumatic injuries and was euthanized.

dirty rotten... bastiche.....
there are local places here in Ohio, where you can "hire" them to come and "stick" them in peoples yards, for a birthday JOKe...

I think it would be appropriate, to surround his gravesite, and someone probably will soon.. just like that...



wish I had a picture a pal took of me, when Frank Zappa came to Cleveland, and I was front row/center, wearing a Pink Flamingo glued to a pink construction helmet, and he walked onstage.... wearing all pink... looked at me and asked me for my helmet, and wore it for half the show..damn Priceless.. someone stole it (helmet, signed by him) from my house at a party.. double bastiche..

So true.  While someone is out there 'becoming one' with them, they are looking thinking: "That looks like lunch"

A recurring problem I see is with humans is we want to anthropomorphise animals.  They hate it when we do that.
