since i wasnt allowed to post this on ONTD i'm saving it for my own journal
ICYMI: Yesterday, a raccoon was spotted climbing the USB building Minnesota. The photo taken from the 13th floor went viral, and the world watched with bated breath as the raccoon climbed higher and higher. Traps were set on the building's rooftop in the hope that the little guy would make his (or her) way to the top of the building. All the drama unfolded in real time, as local Minnesota news live-streamed the raccoon's climb up, then back down, then back up again. The #mprraccoon made it as high as the 23rd floor before getting ontop of the roof to safety. Even famous folks found themselves caught up in the spectacle:

There is a lot of ugliness in this world. Sometimes I cannot believe how bad it is.
Today I received a phone call in the early morning, and that person told me that her dog had just been brutally murdered a few hours ago by her partner. And that this person also had beaten her up, threatened her with a gun, and would have killed her if she had not escaped. He chose the dog instead. I don't want to say who it is at this point, and please don't comment on my facebook because she doesn't want anyone to know right now.
If you or someone you know or an animal has been a victim of abuse, please get help or encourage them to get it. Please tell the victim that it is not his or her fault. It is important to remember that anyone capable of hurting or killing animals is also capable of inflicting grave harm on a person, and that victims not only suffer from physical, but also emotional and mental abuse, and that it is very hard for them to reach out for help. Please be gentle and patient with victims, and please do not blame them. They already feel bad enough.
Also, please consider looking up your state's laws on animal cruelty and if you feel like the law is inadequate, e.g. the crime for harming or killing an animal is merely a misdemeanor, contact your legislature.
It is important that we advocate on behalf of animal and human victims of cruelty. The two are often linked.
It's because I really want the $600 scholarship (my full time internship will be unpaid this summer, fuck), but I can't be considered for that unless I place in the 150. My photo is currently ranked 808. Oh no!
Also this one, if you don't mind, because it's ranked in the top 150, but I need to stay there!
