Canada's Former 'First Lady' Destroys Cougar-Hunter With Emasculating Comment

Laureen Harper is the wife of Canada’s former Prime Minister Stephen Harper and although she comes from a family of hunters, she is absolutely disgusted by the idea of someone hunting for sport.

Something that Twitter saw on full display when Harper commented on Canadian TV Show Host Steven Ecklund’s recent cougar hunt.

People were shocked that Ecklund would proudly display his kill of the big cat.

It left many wondering what someone would gain from shooting down a defenseless animal in the first place, and what would the situation be like if the tables were turned.

Harper’s comments, however, were a bit more straightforward, delivering an emasculating insult directed right at Ecklund online on her Twitter account.

That’s right, she went there.

Her response went viral, garnering over 16,000 likes and over 6,000 retweets, with tons of responses that sparked a conversation on the ethics of Ecklund’s killing of the cougar.

Harper clarified that she’s not against hunting: she believes it’s perfectly fine to hunt for purpose.

She also pointed out that not all sport hunters are bad.

But again, what was the point of stalking and killing a big cat?

Does it matter to you that Ecklund ate the meat and “used” the cougar he killed?

I don’t know what it is about big cats that makes me not want to see them killed. Maybe it’s because they’re viewed as more “majestic” or are less prevalent in nature than, let’s say, chickens or ducks. What do you think?

Barack Obama Tweeted His Own Biden-Obama Meme For The Former VP's Birthday

So much so that Obama even joked about the special relationship he shares with Joe before awarding Biden the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

And it was just in time for the former Vice President’s birthday.

Twitter absolutely loved the post and gave Biden some Happy Birthday wishes of their own.

Others were just stunned that Obama created a meme.

For some, the tweet was a sign of true friendship, a bond that stands the test of time.

Former 'Buffy' Star Perfectly Recreates Iconic Celeb Looks And Instagram Can't Get Enough

Tom Lenk is likely a familiar face to any fans of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. He played nerd boy Andrew on the series, a creative individual with a habit of making up stories at every opportunity. An actor doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with their character’s direction, but Lenk is clearly as dramatic in real life as he was on TV. 

His Instagram account is a deluge of creativity in the form of mocking other celebrities:

It’s doubtful that Lenk considers it mocking, actually; each photo really looks like an homage to favorite looks sported by (mostly) female stars. The handmade creations assembled from what appears to be largely household goods are inspiring, hilarious and fierce as hell:

This Poor Pup's Former Family Showed Up To Her Shelter To Adopt A Different Dog

Usually, pet adoption stories are the kind of news that brighten your day and remind you that there’s still some good left in this world. Unfortunately, the most recent news in the realm of rescue dogs is about as heartbreaking as it gets. 

Meet Zuzu, a 2-year-old German Shepherd currently residing in the Downey Animal Care Center in California.

Shelter volunteers describe the pup as “beautiful and loving” and “amazing” — which is evident from her sweet profile photos on ShelterMe, a site dedicated to matching prospective pet owners with shelter pets. 

Unfortunately, Zuzu’s life hasn’t been easy, thus far. According to her former owners, she “cried” constantly after her father passed away. Eventually, the distressed doggo jumped the fence into a neighbor’s yard and the neighbors called animal control.

Shelter volunteers had previously assumed Zuzu was a stray — until her former owners showed up at the shelter and Zuzu couldn’t contain her excitement. 

“Doing dog intros we got interrupted by a distracted and overly excited Zuzu,” shelter volunteer Desi Lara wrote on Facebook. “With her fast wagging tail seeing her owners Zuzu lite up like a Christmas Tree. She looked like the happiest dog. Yeah, she’s going home.”

In a heartbreaking turn of events, though, Zuzu did not go home with her former family. In fact, they were at the shelter TO ADOPT ANOTHER DOG INSTEAD.

“Their reason was because she was crying and sad since her father passed away. She wasn’t a happy dog anymore,” Desi wrote. “Their solution for her unhappiness was just leaving her here. And [to] go get another dog.”

Obviously, people are outraged by poor Zuzu’s situation and calling for her former owners to be banned from taking another dog.

Most importantly, though, people are sharing the video to make sure Zuzu gets adopted by a deserving family.

“Let’s get her into the perfect home please,” Desi requested. 

While Zuzu’s story is heartbreaking, we should be glad that she’s being taken in by a shelter that will find her a good forever home. 

“[I was] honestly sad but glad,” Desit told Buzzfeed of Zuzu’s situation. “I knew the rescues who come to [the shelter] would find her a good home where she would be a family member.”

We can’t wait to see Zuzu go home to a family that loves and appreciates her! (h/t buzzfeed)
