Five WTH moments of the week

Number 1 :

11 monkeys poisoned in Hibberdene

I have no words for this video posted by Tracy Rowles of Umsizi Umkomaas Vervet Rescue Centre showing one of the monkeys suffering after eating poison deliberately put down in Hibberdene this week.

Extremely disturbing, to say the least!

A R5 000 reward has been offered for any information on WHO could could done such a despicable thing.

This is what a poisoned monkey looks like, the suffering almost unbearable. Today was a tragic day for a small troop in Hibberdene on Wood Grange Rd, where someone deliberately put out fruit which was poisoned for the monkeys. Brought eight bodies home and one male who is in bad shape. Our vets did an amazing job and hope he pulls through, he's looking stable at present. If anyone can help toward his vet costs and the lab tests on all eight monkeys stomachs (which is going to cost approx R3000) which are all being sent to Onderstepoort for toxicology tests to help the case. Our details are Umsizi Umkomaas Vervet Rescue Centre, First National Bank, Umkomaas, cheque account, acc no : 62498732158. It would really be appreciated .

Not a single woman representing women in Saudi Arabia council

WHAT a joke! Just when I got all excited!

Saudi Arabia launches girls’ council – without any girls.


According to a BBC article, it was an encouraging initiative for a country not known for giving women a platform in public life.

But when Saudi Arabia wanted to show off its inaugural girls’ council in al-Qassim province, they overlooked one thing: the women. Pictures released to mark the first Qassim Girls Council meeting showed 13 men on stage, and not a single female – BBC

The women were apparently in another room, linked via video.

Number 3:

Egotistical man slaps snake around

This video is just not impressive! But it went ‘viral’ – as they say!

Even more concerning is that he shoves the poor python into a small basket.

It’s not funny – but despicable! Shame on you, man!

A pity the snake didn’t slap him back, or even better, eat him alive.

Number 4:

Photographs that went in viral in 2016

Need a good laugh? It’s is Friday, you do!

Then go have a look at these wacky and wonderful photographs that turned heads in THAT year, called 2016.

Number 5:

Did you say, La pooch! 


Posted by The Fantastic World of Animals on Wednesday, 1 March 2017

If only I could get my two hounds to behave like this.

Just to wash them is a drama.

Wash time is me racing around the garden with the hosepipe, yelling.

I don’t even want to know how the woman at the ‘pooch parlour’ copes with my fur balls.
