Following the release of a disturbing (make that horrifying) video, which showed a live puppy being fed to a large snake, a zoo in China has vowed to stop the practice. According to the South China Morning Post, the Riverside Zoo in Pingdingshan, Henan province, bore the brunt of outrage from animal lovers after the video began circulating on the internet.
The video behind the outrage showed a live puppy sitting near a python in a snake enclosure – “bulges” in the snake implied that other puppies had already been served as meals to the reptile.

Did you know that if you want to get updates from a Facebook page, you have to do more than just “like” it? To get recent postings in your Facebook feed, you must also hover your mouse over the word “following” and then click “see first” from the drop-down menu. You may want to check back with your favorite pages on occasion because Facebook often changes your settings, no longer having your favorites among those to “see first.”
