Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.

Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.

Please guys, if you could sign this it would mean a lot. I’ve been following this case for months and it’s infuriating how little this zoo and our goverment care about this poor guy. Let’s give him a happy ending.

I know this is not Big Bang related, but this is just horrendous and shameful

this doesn’t fit with my blog at all, but it’s something that’s been bothering me immensely for quite some time and i knew that tumblr was the place where this would probably get the most recognition.

This is Kendall Jones. In her spare time she travels to Africa with her family and hunts endangered animals for her own pleasure. 

Jones, a blonde cheerleader from Texas Tech University, takes pride in hunting big African game, including elephants, lions, tigers, buffalos, leopards and rhinos — including a threatened white rhino, of which there are only 20,000 remaining in the world.

Once these animals have been killed, she posts images of her “trophies” to her facebook page to show off and boast about the innocent life she has just taken.

In January 2015 she is launching her own television show, where you can follow her around Africa yourself and watch her in action.

A petition has been put together by Mark Zuckerberg to have her facebook page removed, to stop her promotion of killing endangered species. You can find the link here to sign the petition.

Please spread the word and help save the majestic creatures.

The Veterinarian Stomach


There’s a simple way to know whether you’re cut out for veterinary medicine. Let me tell you a story.

I work long days. Most vets do. Often we’re too busy to eat lunch, because when the shit hits the fan you pull up your sleeves and (a) get that poor animal onto some newspaper or into the sink…
