An Animal Shelter Turned A Chewed Up Dog Toy Into A Murder Mystery

Wisconsin animal shelter Fox Valley Humane Association is the host to an adorable chocolate lab named Hank, who is in love with his favorite toy, a stuffed animal named Fuzzy Purple Hippo.

That love was put in serious jeopardy, however, earlier this month, when Fuzzy Purple Hippo was discovered one morning with serious injuries. Animal shelter employees feared the worst: ATTEMPTED MURDER.

Luckily, Fuzzy Purple Hippo survived.

But the investigation into Fuzzy Purple Hippo’s apparent assault continued.

Fuzzy Purple Hippo, meanwhile, went to see a therapist. 

But even after Hank’s arrest, protesters asserted that the adorable four-year-old dog was innocent.

Investigators began to study the case further.

And what they found surprised everyone. Hank was not only innocent—he had been trying to save Fuzzy Purple Hippo’s LIFE!

Fuzzy Purple Hippo and Hank will presumably live happily ever after in their new family, but if you want to support the other critters living at Fox Valley, you can donate to the organization through its website.

Britain's New Bank Note Contains Animal Fat And Vegans Aren't Happy

The United Kingdom recently released a new £5 note with new security measures to try and put a stop to counterfeiters. But recently, a rumor started that the polymer of the note contained traces of tallow, a hard fatty substance made from rendered animal fat, often used in candles and soap. 

The Bank of England, the UK’s central bank, confirmed the suspicions on Twitter when asked by a vegan if the claims were accurate. 

And this realization hasn’t gone down well with the vegans of Twitter.

While others were quick to criticize those that were outraged.

A petition calling on the Bank of England to come up with a new design that doesn’t contain tallow has so far attracted 55,000 signatures.

689021529804b3a77e8194458266905e

The petition, started by Doug Maw, reads:

“The new £5 notes contain animal fat in the form of tallow. This is unacceptable to millions of vegans, vegetarians, Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and others in the U.K.” 

“We demand that you cease to use animal products in the production of currency that we have to use.” 

What do you think should happen?

These 3-Piece Animal Rings Let You Rock Your Favorite Wildlife In Style

I’m not the biggest fan of jewelry. I find it kind of useless to deck yourself out in a bunch of little trinkets and stuff for seemingly no reason. Yeah, I guess it looks nice and all that, but the idea of having a bunch of superfluous stuff hanging off of me is annoying enough. I don’t even like wearing too many clothes, let alone hanging a bunch of metal or leather off my body that doesn’t need to be there.

However, I’ll concede that there are some people who can rock a good piece of jewelry and make it look amazing. But most of that is because the person rocking said jewelry is responsible for it being so awesome.

With these cool 3-piece animal rings, however, I don’t think you need to be cool at all. Hell, you could be Jon Lovitz from The Wedding Singer and they’d still look good.

Like this sleepy little sloth just chilling on your finger. “Ayo, don’t move them digits, B.”

These aren’t the official names of these products, in case you thought I was being entirely serious – because I wasn’t.

Doesn’t change the fact that they’re pretty awesome, though.

32 Animals Taking A Break Because Being An Animal Is Hard

I used to have a dog that would sleep for around twenty hours a day. The remaining four hours were spent looking for a good space to sleep. He would normally settle for the same spot where he always slept. 

My family and I would always wonder what he was doing that was so exhausting. Being a dog sounds like a pretty sweet gig. 

As it turns out all animals need to sleep. (Who could have guessed?) So we have collected some of the best sleepers. Please enjoy. I am going to take a nap.
