Fabulous Furry FriBei the 13th

From now on, Fabulous Furry Friday will be known as Fabulous Furry FriBei, in honor of our favorite DC Panda boy, Bei Bei, known to his Panda Chronicle Fans as Bubba!

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, an alert Twidder friend posted this news about three suspected rhino poachers being…wait for it…eaten by lions! The original story I saw was by The New York Post, which is sometimes…um… of questionable veracity, but when I searched for the story this morning, I found citations by the NY Times and the BBC, among others, so, I’m going with it! Of course, that brings to mind this group of ‘toons chronicling another instance of animals taking matter into their own paws.

Karma is such a bitch!

You just can’t trust crocodiles.

Don’t be endangered, be dangerous

And our favorite…Whatever Happened to KittySue?

Want to know how KittySue “disappeared? Buy my book The Pinky Defense and find out! Buy the rest of them while your at it! Paper doesn’t grow on trees, you know! 😀

We are heading in to American Panda birthday season! Stay tuned to celebrate all our junior pandas!

While we are on the topic of making the world safer for animals, we also must bid a not so fond farewell to Scott Pruitt, former “head” of the EPA (Eradication of Population Agency) as his petty (and not so petty) alleged thievery got to be too embarrassing for #45 in the run up to the 2018 elections. Never fear, because you know who wants to nominate an actual coal industry lobbyist to the post. It’s not like we thought things were going to get better, right?

    Happy FriBei! Your crocodile lunch on the Limpopo reminded me Secretary Zinke’s Wildlife CONSERVATION Council. It’s a hunting council, if I’ve added up the following bits correctly….

    Secretary Zinke Announces the Creation of the International Wildlife Conservation Council 11/3/2017 Variations on the words “hunt” are found seven times in the press release. https://www.doi.gov/pressreleases/secretary-zinke-announces-creation-international-wildlife-conservation-council

    U.S. International Wildlife Conservation Council — a 16 member board appointed by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. “Appointees include celebrity hunting guides, representatives from rifle and bow manufacturers, and wealthy sportspeople who boast of bagging the coveted “Big Five” — elephant, rhino, lion, leopard and Cape buffalo. Most are high-profile members of Safari Club International and the National Rifle Association…” https://www.pbs.org/newshour/politics/trump-wildlife-protection-board-has-many-trophy-hunters

    IUCN Red List of Threatened Species (2018):
    Critically Endangered – Black Rhinoceros, Javan Rhinoceros, Sumatran Rhinoceros.
    Vulnerable – Indian Rhinoceros (and the Giant Panda!)
    Near Threatened – White Rhinoceros. Most are the Southern White. There are only two (2) Northern White Rhinos left in the world.

    The Merriam-Webster definition of CONSERVATION: a careful preservation and protection of something; especially : planned management of a natural resource to prevent exploitation, destruction, or neglect.

    Looks like threatened species need some help and some votes, too. Panda on!

      Thank you again for this excellent source of information.
      I certainly hope we all survive, but I’m not feeling especially hopeful this week.

        It has been a tough week! I’ve been having to take lots of media breaks and fill them with cuppycakes (lots!) with extra frosting (just a little extra!). Pinky in Wonderland sure does help, too 🙂

          Glad it helps! I think I need to take a news diet myself. Is it just me, or has it been particularly bad this week?
