In researching the oh so hilarious comedy bits for an upcoming post on the extinctions of bats, I ran across other cataclysmic animal news from, like, back in April. I may be well behind the Fox News outrage curve on this one, but then, I don’t exactly scour the internet looking for cruelty-to-animal news, since in my house the cruelty is usually committed by animals on humans. Sucking chest wounds from late-night drive-by biscuitings, anyone? Check. Squooshy cat poop in the slippers one fine August morning? Check. Enough Friskies vomited on the computer keyboard to feed every stray cat in Boise? Check.
