- A volunteer intern was killed by a lion, who was then killed, for being a lion. This happened at Cat Haven, a facility which “breeds and keeps lions, tigers, jaguars, lynx and other exotic cats and takes them out for public appearances.” I feel so bad for Dianna Hanson and her family, and the big cats and human staff at Cat Haven. Maybe one day humans will focus our efforts on preserving natural habitats, rather than keeping big cats in captivity.
- Humans continue to consider cow flesh mixed with horse flesh to be “tainted” and are deciding if they should give it to the poor rather than throwing it out. The linked article includes a graph showing what animals people prefer to eat, by species. My conclusion: Please stop all of this and go vegan.
- Surviving isn’t always thriving.
- Humans may be creating a new geologic age which may or may not be comprised of our fossilized cities. The future will tell, I guess. Now would be a good time to give up beef and air travel, if you care about future generations and such. Via Natured on Twitter.
