    Please, no. When my nephew was little, he said he wanted to be a penguin hunter. What a horrible thought, he didn't even own a toy gun, not even a squirt gun. Then he said he wanted to search for them, look for them all over the world, not kill them. I could live with that.

    Please, no. Also. However, it was the first thing that popped up in my demented mind.

    No updates/arrests in the theft and subsequent decapitation of the humboldt penguin that I could find, but it seems this wasn't the first theft from a German zoo. The thefts are being linked to organized crime.

    This thread really makes doubt humanity (and hate people) sometimes. Ugh! How can people do such things? So sad

    Ugh! It's clear in these cases that the wrong animals are behind bars.

    Maybe I should've titled this thread "Animal Abuse and Neglect." What could happen next?

    Well .... this, for one:

    Bear dies after plummeting from helicopter

    http://www.ibtimes.com/animal-tourism-thailand-bear-dies-after-falling-helicopter-2501348

    I don't suppose it was touring the jungle by air?

    IDK. Maybe the bear would've preferred taking the bus.

    :gaah:
