Shut Up and Take My Money of the Day: A Guinea Pig Armor Suit
Need your guinea pig to be battle ready? Sean McCoy from Virginia has got you covered with a custom set of scale-mail! Originally custom tailored for his deceased pet rodent Lucky, the item was put up on eBay last week with the initial bid starting at $5, which has since skyrocketed to $15,100 as of this afternoon. McCoy says that he will be donating all profits to the Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue in Virginia, which aims to rescue, rehabilitate and find homes for animals in need.
Very intrigued by this trailer for Blackfish, a new documentary about Tilikum, a performing whale at SeaWorld that swallowed its trainer whole.
“Directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite, the film attempts to uncover what caused the incident, exposing never before seen footage and interviews from the scandalous but widely hushed up case. We also see the true nature of the corrupt and profitable sea-park industry, including the disillusionment of workers who have had their safety jeopardised and the extraordinarily cruel treatment of orcas in captivity.”
The film is scheduled to be released in the UK in July.
