    South Africa: When Majesty Falls to Folly - Battle Lines Drawn in Zulu Kingdom Succession

    South Africa: When Majesty Falls to Folly – Battle Lines Drawn in Zulu Kingdom Succession

    While the burial and the special official provincial funeral for the late regent of the Zulu nation take place over the next few days, it will do little to dampen the royal tiffs about succession and the division of the late king and queen’s estate. For more than two centuries since the inception of the Zulu kingdom, the kind of acrimony, bitter fallouts, backbiting and backstabbing that played…

    @tokyotrain ok so i wasn't going to actually respond because some of what you said to me was actually so unbelievably stupid that i felt myself losing braincells reading it. I am an internet personality on tumblr. I do not owe you a mile long list of resources when google is free and can answer questions better than i can. But because im afraid you'll pop a blood vessel if you look at a search engine, I'll explain

    No, wild cats are not majority kept in Russia. And even if that were the case, i think I'd still be allowed to criticize and call attention to it regardless of the government situation. The problem starts in the countries these cats are native to, where trappers will trap and sell cubs on the market for thousands of dollars, actively destroying the biodiversity in that area for a quick buck.

    These are WILD cats. They arent domesticated. No matter if theyre as big as a lion or as small as a sand cat, you cannot breed the wild out of them in one or two generations. If the cat harms another animal in any way, the cat legally has to be euthanized. Doesnt matter if they were "just playing" or not. Its the law with domestic cats and dogs too, if you give a shit. Accidents will happen. People will put their other pets and friends/family at risk because they wanted a tiger. Or a puma. Or a caracal.

    Caracals, which big floppa is, are at risk, constantly being wild caught for the pet trade BECAUSE big floppa makes people want them.

    The point of tiger king is not to show you that hes a murderer, or a drug lord. I mean, it is. But its also to show people how those roadside zoos do not care for their animals, neglecting and abusing them constantly for money. There's a white tiger in the show that makes me sick to my stomach when i see it- white tigers are all inbred by the way. They dont occur naturally. We make them. We purposefully inseminate tigresses with semen from their relatives for a pretty cat- of which over 50% die as cubs. The white tiger in the show is morbidly obese, and can hardly move. Its disgusting. And before you say that it cant be on purpose because people dont know what semen theyre buying- they do!! We have charts of bloodlines to PREVENT white tigers!! People use them to do the opposite.

    Keeping wild cats is inhumane, dangerous, and actively destroys our natural ecosystems. But sure of course you have anger issues- you said- so what does all that matter? Oh and of course Russian suicide rates, how silly could i be. Jesus fucking christ. Dont continue this argument. youre only going to make yourself look like more of an idiot than youve already done.
