Depressing facts about humanity: People swerve to hit animals - The chances are that on any given day, you’ll walk past the kind of person who would intentionally run over an animal on the side of the road. In an experiment conducted by Mark Rober, an engineer for NASA, a bunch of rubber snakes, tarantulas, and turtles were placed by the side of a highway, just to see what would happen. Rober found that out of one thousand passing cars documented, as many as sixty went out of their way to squash them. The drivers made a conscious decision to swerve beyond the roadside boundaries in an attempt to kill the rubber animals. Perhaps unsurprisingly, eighty-nine percent of such cases involved SUVs. On the flip side, a good number of people did pull up in an attempt to help the animal—but that doesn’t change the fact that when presented with a innocent little snake just trying to go about its business, more than one in twenty people risked their own lives to destroy it.
People are monsters legitimately tho

Swear to god, some guys are terrified that girls are faking common interests to impress them and act really hostile towards anyone they even SUSPECT of doing such a thing
but then they turn around and fake a whole friendship in the hopes of getting sex out of girls, and get mad at them when it doesn’t work
and they super do not see the irony in that
I reblog this every time I see it, no question.
Can’t stop laughing…

Wolf Haven International in Washington has a few wolfdogs, and they’ve all got similar backgrounds - people wanted them for pets, found out quickly that they weren’t domestic dogs, and immediately wanted to get rid of them.
On more than one occasion, employees at Wolf Haven have showed up to work in the mornings to find wolfdogs (and even a few purebred but poorly-behaved Nordic dogs) chained to their front gates by irresponsible owners.
The worst case I saw was a wolfdog (there was a chance she was pure wolf, but most of us weren’t convinced and it was hard to tell with her injuries) that was beaten so severely “for obedience” that her jaw became set incorrectly, she had cigarette burn scars all over her body, her canines were worn down from being kept in a crate without proper training, and she had a permanently crippled elbow from jumping off the apartment balcony. Luckily someone in an obedience class with the wolfdog noticed the injuries each time and called someone about it and she was placed at the sanctuary. The saddest thing? This animal freaking loved humans. It put tears to my eyes thinking about her story every time she was curled up next to me, or someone else, or was losing her mind with excitement when we’d enter her enclosure. I always wondered, “How can you even look at a human with joy after what you’ve been through?”
THIS IS WHAT CAN HAPPEN WHEN YOU CLAIM YOUR DOG IS A WOLFDOG.
Some asshole goes out and buys an actual wolfdog, thinking that it will act just like the husky/malamute mix next door, and when it acts like (surprise!) a legitimate wolfdog, they think that it’s because there is something wrong with it, so they beat and abuse it repeatedly simply because it’s following its nature.
How can anyone think that this okay? How can anyone sit idly by while someone else contributes to a problem which routinely results in dead and abused animals, all so that a person can have a bit of an ego boost for keeping a “majestic wolf beast!” in their home?
This is why real wolfdog owners keep the content of their animals on the down-low when walking around in public, and why they will usually be the very first to tell you that keeping a wolfdog is a BAD idea.
And it’s the reason many of us are so passionate about the topic of misrepresentation. I wish that EVERYONE could see this, and know that this is what can result when people make false claims about their pets.
