Other Countries Version Of "Pigeons"

Pigeons. They're everywhere and unavoidable. However, in some countries, pigeons may not be their main animal sighting. Instead, they have their own versions of "pigeons" with a variety of different animals that are everywhere and unavoidable. 

And though pigeons are actually everywhere and there's no comparison, it's fun to see what other countries have to deal with when it comes to wild animals.

Crazy Safari Encounters of A Furry Kind

Living in suburbia, there is nothing like getting away from it all and going into nature, and experiencing everything that urbanization can't offer. Some take it a step further, and seek out foreign lands in order to experience the real wild. So they go on a guided Safari tour with guides and cars that gives them the most authentic experience possible.

But there is no doubt that being up close and personal with animal is an incredible opportunity they probably won't have again. And for some of these people, after their experience, they might never want to again.

Wales Is Banning Wild Animal Use In Circuses

Finally! Things are changing for the animals in captivity who are forced to perform for our amusement -- and we couldn't be happier! 

With more than 6,5000 responses from the public, this new law was "overwhelmingly backed," said the Welsh Government. The Welsh Government rural affairs minister, Lesley Griffiths, agreed with the ban and stated that wild animals should be "treated with respect". 

Wales will join the circus ban that has been passed in Scotland, Republic of Ireland, and what is currently passing through Parliament in England.

The world is coming to realize that wild animals shouldn't be exploited for our entertainment. Claire Lawson of RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) said that keeping wild animals in traveling circuses has no place in modern Wales. And Dr Chris Draper, Head of animal welfare and captivity at wildlife charity Born Free Foundation, added, "Great Britain may soon be free of circuses with wild animals."

We certainly hope so! At least we know things for wild animals in performance roles are heading in the right direction!

An equally compelling tale is that one time a squirrel came near my window and I was gonna give it a nut but then I put on my glasses and it turned out it was actually just a pinecone the end.
