Remember Cecil the Lion, the sage 13-year-old lion from Zimbabwe who was shot by some dentist from Minnesota and everyone freaked the fuck out? Well Cecil is still dead and guess what? Now his son is too.
Walter Palmer, the Minnesota man whose many talents include drilling into human teeth and killing famous lions named Cecil, “will not be charged with any crime in Zimbabwe.”
On Sunday, Zimbabwe ‘s National Parks and Wildlife Management Authority announced that a Pennsylvania gynecological oncologist is also guilty of illegally poaching a lion in April, meaning that the turd dentist who killed Cecil will now have a pen pal in the prison of public ire.
Walter Palmer, a dentist and all-around piece of shit from Minnesota, is said to have paid $55,000 to kill a beloved 13-year-old Zimbabwean lion, nicknamed Cecil, who had been wearing a collar as a part of a long-running Oxford University research project.
Perhaps one of the greatest stories of Hollywood glamour and ego gone wrong is the one of Tippi Hedren and then-husband Noel Marshall illegally breeding lions on their California property. Hedren was insistent that the big cats—like lions, tigers and panthers—made great pets. Case in point, here's a lion cuddling…
I guess you could say they're just lion around. *Paws for applause*
As someone who loves sneaking up on friends and seeing how long I can stand within inches of them without them noticing, I can appreciate this big cat's stealth game. And honestly, I don't think the cub really meant to frighten the poor dog—the cub itself seemed startled by the dog's reaction. IT JUST WANTS TO PLAY…
A woman has been banned from the Memphis Zoo for trying to climb into a lion enclosure and feed them cookies.
Dear Seahawks Fans, even if you are destined to watch your team lose this evening, you will still always have this adorable video of a lion cub trying to murder some official Seahawks merchandise with its itty-bitty claws. Look how it tries to disembowel the football! Too precious. We could eliminate concussions by…
Well, this is really fucking sad. A female lion named Johari, 5, was attacked and killed by a male lion in her enclosure at the Dallas Zoo on Sunday afternoon. Another obvious example of the patriarchy in action, said some idiot making a terrible joke (me).
Everyone please stahp everything you are doing right now and just watch this video of BoneDigger the lion and his best bud, Milo the dachshund.
Unless you’re a ogre (and if you are, that’s completely fine, you do you), you can’t look at a lion cub without feeling that little instinctual twang to smother it with cuddles. But two lion cubs?? Rolling around, batting each other playfully?? This is the sort of irresistible propaganda dictators use to climb the…
Here's a lion at Big Cat Rescue eating some ice cream, because Lion's knows what's up re: delicious summertime treats.
Can someone please turn this into a cartoon about a dachshund dentist and his big cat patients? Everyday is a daring adventure at Doggie Denistry, LLC(ute). (The poster is those two, standing on hind legs and back to back, looking over their shoulders at each other. Do it!)
This video from Big Cat Rescue reminds many of us that we live with pint-sized kings and queens of the jungle. Damn, cats are awesome.
In 1919, the legendary actress Gloria Swanson was not yet legendary — she was just a young woman who recklessly insisted that Cecil B. DeMille not cut a scene from Male and Female that called for a real claws-and-teeth, carrion-breath lion draping its paws across Swanson’s back.
I have no idea if this is true or not, but we're gonna act like it's true because HOLY SHIT ANIMALS ARE MAGIC.
At long last Illinois is considering legislation to deal with its disquieting lion meat problem. Oh, you weren't aware that folks in Illinois were tearing into huge lion rib eyes at Fourth of July barbecues, washing down the gamey taste of proud African wildcat with onomatopoetic soft drinks and A1? Then you, my poor,…
Hey, little buddy. Don't cry. No, seriously, stop it before I citizen's-arrest you, because ever since these six baby white lions were born, CRYING IS ABOLISHED. I know you think you know how cute six baby white lions are, but you have no idea. You have no. Idea. Snugz.
In her classic article, Teddy Bear Patriarchy, Donna Haraway examined the arrangement of the taxidermied animals in the American Museum of Natural History mammal hall in the first half of the 1900s. She observed that the dioramas consistently featured nuclear families with strong fathers alert for dangers and…
