JnK

New York JnK Tiger Rescue http://youtu.be/1TK4MTqnG7E http://youtu.be/CRuyvdIYWJk DejaVu is all I can say.

Someone wants to “rescue” wild animals because that seems like glamorous work, so they buy animals (and just prolong the problem) until the really bad guys find out there is a new place to dump last year’s photo cubs, and then the “rescues” become more legitimate, in the eyes of the “rescuer” Read More
