It seems that after several decades, the mystery of the Beast of Dartmoor (and possibly the Beasts of Bodmin and Exmoor as well!) may have been finally laid to rest. In the 1970s, Mary Chipperfield (a circus owner) and her family owned Plymouth Zoo, and when it was shut down, she said she would give her five pumas to Mr Ellis Daw at Dartmoor Wildlife Park. However, upon arriving, Mr Daw claims to only have received two of the five pumas.  Danny Bamping, founder of the British Big Cats Society, claimed “Mary Chipperfield told Ellis she had broken down on Dartmoor and that somehow three of the pumas had escaped. We think she let them out on the moor.”

The three that had ‘escaped’ were her favorite breeding pair and another young male. Mary’s husband, Roger Cawley, denys this, saying, “We had no dealings with the old Dartmoor Wildlife Park all those years ago and certainly never released pumas or any other wild animals on Dartmoor.”

Mary Chipperfield and her husband were no angels when it came to animals, so the release of big cats in England would not be far-fetched. In 1999, she was fined £7,500 for 12 counts of cruelty involving a young 18 month old chimpanzee named Trudy; the acts of cruelty involved whipping Trudy with a riding crop and forcing her to sleep in a small box. Her husband was fined £1,000 at the same time for whipping a sick elephant around a circus ring.

Popular cab company Uber are facing safety inquiries after a US driver, Jason Dalton, committed a mass shooting from his car, despite several complaints about his erratic behaviour. Dalton was a popular driver who operated in  Kalamazoo, Michigan. He would often be accompanied by his dog, which customers loved. He shot 6 people over a five hour period on the 22nd of February and showed no emotion in his first court appearance.

This year, the hit-making band wore colorful suits and had “Love Me” scrawled across the singer’s belly. … Early in Sunday’s set, Healy leaned into a video camera so his image was blown up on the big screen pointing to himself, the implied message being: “Keep your eyes on this.”

Hi, do you have a favorite verse for feeling suicidal?

Psalm 23 is my fave. ♥

1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2    He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3    he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
   for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk
   through the darkest valley,[a]
I will fear no evil,
   for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
   they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me
   in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
   my cup overflows.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me
   all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
   forever.

Golam and Shamima Rabbi were a couple well-loved by the local community. The lived a quiet life and enjoyed doing charity work all across San Jose. On the 24th of April 2016, they were found dead. They were both blasted with a shotgun in their own home. On the floor, written in what appeared to be ink was a chilling message: “Sorry, my first kill was clumsy.” This indicates that San Jose may have a young, active serial killer that is likely to terrorize many more people before he or she is caught.

This reticulated python is thought to be the longest snake on record at 26 feet long and weighing in at just over 550 lbs. The snake was found on the island of Penang by construction workers. It was first seen on April 7th, 2016 and passed away on April 10th, 2016 after giving birth to a single egg. The snake has not been officially measured by record keepers and before it died it was due to be transported to Malaysia’s Department of Wildlife. The current world record for longest snake is 25 feet long.

Why do you believe in God? Don't want to sound rude or anything like that to be clear, I really like you and your blog. I just lost my faith and... Just want to know.

this is actually a nice question. it made me think a LOT. like yeah, why do i believe in God? i can’t say “because i feel Him”, cause there are times when i don’t feel Him at all. But maybe because I have tasted and seen His goodness, love, grace and faithfulness. I had a personal experience with Him that forever changed me. There are times when i feel so discouraged, mad, frustrated and angry with life that i wanted to backslide and just stop. But for some reason I always find myself bouncing back to Him.

I also had a phase in my journey when I questioned if He is real. Probably battled with it for 1-2 years? (I was a new believer then). What happened was when i’m striving to grow my relationship with God, that’s when the doubts are creeping in but when my Spirit is weak the doubts will stop. So i realized its the devil putting all those lies in my head and just fought all those lies. It was a hard battle but I prayed a lot and read His Word.

I don’t know what you’ve been through to start questioning about Him, you are welcome to talk to me off anon if you trust me enough. But rest assured, I am praying for you. God loves you very much.

also thank you for your kind words. I bet i’ll like you too. Keep fighting! God bless
