Well, Sunday 9th February has been a pretty shit day if you're a member of the animal kingdom; and I don't include humans. I think they are a race apart.
I heard and read on the news today that six lions at Longleat Safari Park were killed last month, because of 'health risks'. Too many of them was the reason given, and they were becoming aggressive.
Then this morning, at Copenhagen zoo, an 18 month old giraffe was killed by a bolt gun in front of a crowd of people; including children.
The reason? He was surplus to requirements.
Despite online petitions, and a couple of offers from various places to re-home him, Marius was slaughtered, and later used to feed the lions at the zoo.
And finally, it was revealed today that prince Wanker; oops, I mean prince William, and his brother Harry, were off to Spain to hunt Deer and Wild Boar. This, the day before he is due to make a high profile appeal to stop the illegal hunting of wildlife.
I'm sure his mother would be very proud of the little shit.
Let's have some sun to try and brighten what's left of the day.
