Now we gon' talk about abuse. Abuse can happen no matter race, age or sex/gender, but it's true women and kids suffer the worse. That does NOT mean men CAN'T be abused! It can happen to anyone and the abuser can be anyone, even the sweetest person you know could be hitting his parter or kid(s).
Two years after Cecil the lion was killed by a trophy-hunter in Zimbabwe, prompting global outrage, his son may have met a similar sad end.
Xanda, a six-year-old lion with several young cubs, was reportedly shot on a trophy hunt. He is said to have died outside the Hwange National Park in northern Zimbabwe.
Xanda, like his father, wore a tracking collar as part of Oxford University research.
"It was monitored almost daily and we were aware that Xanda and his pride was spending a lot of time out of the park in the last six months, but there is not much we can do about that," Andrew Loveridge, a scientist involved with the research, told the Daily Telegraph.
Zimbabwean professional hunter, Richard Cooke, reportedly saw the collar after killing Xanda. He later returned it to researchers.
The names of the clients on the hunt have not been revealed.

This is what is being hidden in our society. The only way we can put a end to it is if we stand up and fight against it. Speak up about it. Seek the help that you need. Your voice matters. Don't die in silence. Parents be more aware of who is around your children. Be involved in their lives and ask them questions but more importantly listen when they are speaking to you. No one deserves any type of abuse. #ReinaRose17#enoughisenough#youarenotalone#domesticviolence#domesticabuse#childabuse#sexualabuse#rape#stopabuse
Domestic violence in India is not only limited to rural areas. Urban setups too crowded with the educated masses face as much as physical, mental and emotional abuse. The voices of such women are silenced by the monsters of patriarchy. And a minor chunk of them only are able to protest against such heinous acts. The rest suffer in silence considering the future of their children! Even family members of some women refuse to take action lest they should be entangled in the legal procedures! Amidst all these, the children of such disturbed families are left behind. Seeing their mother suffer in silence since a tender age has an adverse impact on their overall well being. In future it can have drastic consequences of depression in children among other psychological disorders.
To all those women out there. It's high time you should silence the voices of patriarchy and create your space in this world, to fight for your justice and most importantly to secure the future of your children!!! You have every right to live with honour and dignity rather than being under the clutches of patriarchy!!! GO AND STOP THOSE HANDS OF PATRIARCHY.... Inspire other such women to take a step and change their lives!!! #domesticviolence#patriarchy#womenempowerment#speakup#justice#equalrights#crushpatriarchy#womenrights#mirakee#writersnetwork#stopabuse#girlpower#enddomesticviolence
Rescue of the Day!
Our rescue of the day is sweet studly. He was a bull calf that we rescued. When he came to us he had major pneumonia and had gone through treatment repeatedly. He would get better, then sick, better, then sick. He was a sweet calf that fought hard to live, but sadly he had passed away. Let me tell you something, rescuing animals is not always sunshine, puppies, and baby animals. It is heartbreak, tears, anger, sadness, and if you're lucky you will find joy in it all. I can't begin to count how many times I've cried just because of the condition some of these poor babies are in. These animals have no voice, which is why I speak I for them! Studly lived in a horrid place with god knows how many other sick cows there had been in those pens before him. He was covered in poop, flies, and in a pen right next to a pack of pigs that had dead babies laying around. It was heart wrenching. Studly also came in with the gorgeous bessie, whom is pictured with him in the second photo, but that's a story for another day. #bull#rescue#calf#hopeforall#hopeforallrescue#betheirvoice#stopabuse#baby#bullcalf#rip
Work and business can be so stressful, I agree. So parents are compelled to say these words to their children. But, hey, your little child may not understand the meaning of those words. They just want to download to you, all that happened when you were away! Many parents have lost the opportunity of hearing their child tell them about inappropriate touches. No matter how tired you are, pls take a few minutes to listen. Mummy, invite them for a chat in the kitchen. Daddy, rather than watching that football match or reading the newspaper, take a few minutes to chat with your child.
Listen! I know im going to sound so "dramatic" to a few people (I don't give a flying fuck)! Just because you lost weight (yes congradulations) , doesn't mean you have to put others down based on their appearance! Stop telling me "you'll look prettier if you looked thinner!" Or "you're a fatass! , etc. Stop questioning me about what I put in my mouth. Then start lecturing me about all this dietary shit:
1) you're not my f****** nutritionis!
2) mind your f****** business, stop hovering over me!
3) I get that you care about me but at the same time your opinions are unnecessary!
4) no matter if you are skinny, averaged, or plus-size there's always going to be some type of health issue. Literally it's an all-way Street! Fat shaming is just as bad as skinny shaming, clearly not many people umderstand that!
5)before you start judging people by the shape of their body or their size just make sure you are 100% perfect scratch that 300% perfect! Always remember your "Roots!" What I mean by that there is a time when you had size too. If you want to help people change their lifestyle I suggest you not to be such a fucking asshole and shut the fuck up! 💯💯 Lastly, I'm @roux_londonla !! I'm a powerful strong, plus size, black woman! I am comfortable in my own skin! I may have my low self-esteem times but I am not afraid to flaunt my curves! when I'm ready to make the change I'll do it!! 💯💯💯💯💯💯 #endbodyshaming#endhate#rouxla#edmlifestyle#stopabuse#love#happiergirlsshinebrighter#healing#fightyourfight#armadamusic#armadaradio#curvesaresexy#loveyourself#makeadifference#amazinglife#truth#plur#actionsspeaklouderthanwords

Sometimes, artists are artists because they are most afflicted. And the pain is alleviated through their art. But to all my artists, escape to your art but don't run from talking about your pain. Run towards positive things. Chester(frontman) was truly talented. Brought their kind of music even when others doubted them. Painful to hear he was afflicted with pains brought on by childhood sexual abuse which led to a great deal of sorrow. Rest In Peace Chester🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾 #linkinpark#music#mentalhealthawareness#mentalhealth#restinpeace#stopabuse#art#artist
Traveling the world brings serious truths to light. While staying in the elephant sanctuary the truth of the pain and abuse elephants face because of tourism and logging became apparent. Elephants are very smart, social, family oriented, beautiful creatures that deserve our care and respect. So I'm passing on some truth that some people don't know. Riding elephants, going to the elephant circus and trafficking baby elephants on the street is abuse. This kind of tourism supports the pain, abuse, suffering and the forced breeding rape of thousands of elephants forced into tourism. The @elephantnaturepark is working their hardest everyday to save elephants from these abusive owners and it was an honor to have give our time and money to them. Truths can be heartbreaking, and we have had to see many heartbreaking things on this trip alone. It brings me hope to know people like Apple and Ten at the Elephant Nature Park fighting tirelessly for freedom and love. #stopabuse

Delighted to have given my love and care to these beautiful Asian Elephants. Certainly a highlight of my life. Thank you @elephantnaturepark for all the work your incredible staff, mahouts and volunteers do. #realfriendsthrowpoop#elephantnaturepark
