My alert friends and readers are always making sure I’ve heard of all the stories of animals misbehaving around the world. These stories almost never disappoint, and this one is no exception!
A herd of about 15 asian elephants have been running amok in towns and farmlands in south Yunnan province, where most of the endangered elephants live. They don’t know why these elephants have gone on walk-about, and they are trying to find a suitable place for them to settle.
Of course, the intrepid roving reporter at ZooNooZ is on the scene!
We are in the midst of a heat wave here in the upper left coast! Temperatures in Seattle and Portlandia hit over 100, but here on a small island off in the Puget Sound, we have managed to stay below 100 (at 99) I hear there is not a fan to be found, or an air conditioner, so I am getting up close and personal with every ice pack in the freezer! Temperatures are predicted to drop over night, which will be a welcome relief!
It’s Day 4 of 31 Days of Pandas! The panda socks have arrived, and I’m going to spend this evening packing and organizing (and then watching movies and felting pandas!) Tomorrow there will be another new ‘toon and then on Friday, there will be more from Pinky in Wonderland.
The post about the lions that ate the rhino poachers showed up on Twitter this week, so I thought that today’s encore presentation could be this series from The Animal Justice League!
This storycame to me from one of my alert pandas fans, who like to keep me informed about amusing animal stories that abound on the internet! There have been MANY stories about bears lately, so I have been collecting them and they will show up eventually! Frank and Mikey have been busy bears!
But meanwhile, today is Bubba’s Birthday, so I have to share this ‘toon once again!
Bubba flunks “cake”
Meanwhile, Put a Penguin on it!
Rogue penguins! Hahahahaha!

BTW: I’m expecting Mr. Wu pins et al tomorrow, so stay tuned! If you supported them on Kickstarter, they will be coming your way soon, and if not, stay tuned on how to get yours!
Yeah, you may think all those big eyed deer that you see in Disney movies are so sweet and adorable, but here on Whidbey, the deer are totally cheesed off at people and aren’t afraid to let you know what they REALLY think! I read of several instances in our local paper, where deer attacked both cats a dogs, and killed at least one dog and a cat.
Seriously, Bambi! get a grip!
Don’t get mad. Get even.
I don’t know. Maybe the average rate of one deer a day getting hit by a car was starting to make them mad!
So… when I work on my ‘toons, I pretty much schedule them in the order that I drew them, and if there is a time sensitive subject matter (like the ‘toon I’m going to run on Thursday), I try to draw them in that order. in my obsessive compulsive way, I even write the date and day on the page in my sketchbook where I write the ‘toons.
But this ‘toon cracks me up so much that I couldn’t wait for the whole two and a half weeks till its turn to run came up in the ‘toon schedule.
Because, when it comes to fierce animals, you don’t mess with grizzly bears!
Don’t (*snorf*) look like food!
And then there was the news that HWMNBN was going to get his way in regard to tanks in his military dictator parade. Oh….um…did I say that outloud?
Do we HAVE to go?
Don’t forget to go check out the Mr. Wu Pin Kickstarter! I have a really great stretch goal that I’m just dying to tell you about!!!
Somehow I got out of sync with my ‘toons, and left the tail end of this story (that was a pun, get it? Tail end?) hanging while we wrapped up the second Panda Pin project! We’ll be doing a third one this summer, to celebrate that cubby among cubbies, the one true Wu Self!
But first, I have a bunch of organizing to do, along with the making of lists, the ordering of pins, and the gathering of information. If you missed the Bubba and Ping Ping Pin projects, hold on to your cuppycakes. after I get all the Kickstarter pins sent out, I can field requests from here or you can wait till the next project to catch up, sometime around late June.
Thanks again to all who participated!
Meanwhile, don’t turn your back on those lions!
If you go out in the woods today, you’re in for a big surprise!
