It's in Dutch, but the story is: one sheep jumps off a cliff (in Turkey) and the rest follows. 500 casualties. Meeh.

Sounds familiar? They're almost human.
Methinks that first sheep had orange hair and a bad comb over.
Let's make wool great again?

If you're looking for a perfect present for an animal lover, this facebook group organises auctions of paintings and other pieces by young and like-minded artists to support small animal welfare organisations: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1934306 ... tion=group

This week one can choose the donation for Lion's Heart charity looking after the zoo animals in Taiz, Yemen, or several other similar initiatives. I've posted about the Taiz zoo project in the forum several times over the past 2+ years, which is how long the Lion's Heart provided for them so far.

These Guinea pig and vulture expose themselves to you for money they need for medicines and food for themselves and their 300 friends in the Taiz zoo. The Saudi Arabia-led coalition supported by UK, USA et al. bombed their country, pushing them to this shameful act.

They so do! Pollinating, controlling the population of other insects, etc.

300 elephants gather to mourn the death of their leader

When you look in the eyes of an elephant in the wild, they have such an ocean of warm feelings in them, that if they weren't so thick-skinned they would get mortally upset and die.
