And its no exaggeration to say its pointing to a threat facing all humanity. The pig in question is Peppa, beloved by children everywhere.

Comments are off for this post.

In the 12 years since YouTube was created, it's become a place for everything—a hub for gamers, livestreamers, music videos, vloggers, The Rock, breaking news, "Despacito," feature films, and whatever you call that thing Logan Paul made last year.

It’s Not Just Elephants. Trump Rolled Back Regulations On Lion Trophies, Too.

Comments are off for this post.
Wildlife officials began issuing permits for lion trophies from Zimbabwe and Zambia sometime last month, ABC News reported on Thursday, pointing to a new page on the FWS website that details the regulations and calls hunting a “conservation tool.” Trophies from wild and wild-managed lions from South Africa are also acceptable under the import rules, and hunts from Mozambique, Namibia and Tanzania are under review.

In 2014, the White House banned elephant trophy imports from Zimbabwe, citing a lack […]
