Green Jihad

Two animal activists thought they were doing the world a favour by sneaking into a home and releasing a caged bird. But it ended in disaster.

By Ben Graham,

A seasoned veterinary nurse has hit out at the “despicable” actions of two animal rights activists who snuck into her mother’s home to “rescue” a caged bird — which was then fatally mauled by a cat.

Who approved that crap

Don’t forget they ran this in a poll week. Want to bet it makes the TV News at 6? Mission accomplished!
