I Would Have Shot the Parents Too

The tragic death of Harambe the gorilla at the Cincinnati Zoo is the direct result of negligence by the parents of the child who ended up in the gorilla enclosure.

Yes accidents happen. Small children do things and go places they are not supposed to. But any good parent would have rounded up their child before they even thought of getting close enough to the gorilla enclosure to fall in.
As sad as I am about the death of the gorilla I feel the Zoo had no other choice. A tranquilizer dart wouldn't work fast enough on an animal that large. Entering the enclosure, even a trained professional could have frightened the animal.
They did what they could to do save the child's life. Now if they could only do something about his parents.

I Hope We Find Them a Nice Warm Jail

A bison calf had to be put down after a pair of tourists to Yellowstone National Park put the animal in their car because they thought he was cold.

The idiots took him away from his herd, and efforts to reunite him were unsuccessful and he had to be euthanized for his safety and the safety of others because he kept approaching people and cars.

The tourists, who are not American, say they found him alone, thought he was freezing and wanted to drive him to a park facility.

That's bullshit. I don't know if they wanted to take him home, or just have a good instagram picture of a bison calf in their rental car but everyone knows you don't fuck with nature.

The park rangers said the tourists thought they were caring for the animal. I am not forgiving. They should be prosecuted.

Brothers Don't Shake Hands

Definitely the best part of having a new baby is seeing how the big brothers are reacting.
The first night we had him home Chase said to me "I don't know why, but I just love him so much."
And we sometimes find Julian randomly sitting near Lincoln's seat or bassinet with his book or his iPad, just looking at him, being near him.

Mrs. Poop bought these shirts with their names on them, as a set, before we 100% decided on the name. Good thing we stuck with our first choice.

Song of the Week

"Keep You in Mind" - Guordan Banks
Love finding a good, lesser-known R&B/soul singer.
