Q:Hi! uumm I read your post about how the exotic fox got killed (which saddens me alot :( ) and the one thing that runs through my head is that in order for the animal control to have come to this person house, whoever sent the anon message either hacked the person computer or known them in order for the A.C. to have gone to this persons exact address. Has their been any updates on this person who lost their precious pet?
I have heard no updates, no. But I will check.
How Tumblr got an exotic fox killed.
From reddit user /u/Aeviegh:
Several days ago, a fellow fox owner and dear friend received an anonymous message through Tumblr threatening to report Vader as a vicious animal. Unfortunately, these threats are something nearly every exotic pet owner has experienced. Thinking it was just another internet crazy, she deleted the message. Like many foxes, Vader had never left his home property for anything other than a vet trip. One would assume in order to file a report, you would need some proof. Apparently that isn’t the case in North Dakota.
Last night, animal control officers and local police showed up at her door and, without a warrant, seized Vader. The reason given was that they had received an “anonymous bite report”. The person who physically took Vader was not a trained animal control officer, but rather a local cop. Wearing thick gloves, he cornered Vader and picked him up by the scruff of the neck. The cop had previously been advised multiple times on how to properly handle Vader (or any animal, for that matter) but decided to disregard the advice not only of his owner, but animal control officers as well. Out of fear, Vader bit his glove but did not puncture the material. Staff at Animal Control reported he was wagging his tail whenever he was fed and being friendly with everyone who interacted with him.
Vader’s owner made several calls to the North Dakota Board of Animal Health, Department of Health and local police department. All three assured her because they had no proof of punctured flesh in either incident, and that the cop had horrifically botched the seizure, Vader would be safe and they were just holding him to make sure he wasn’t exhibiting signs of any contagious diseases. A few hours ago, the police showed up with Vader’s collar. Animal Control had euthanized him without a hearing or proper medical screening, stating that they had evidence that the person from the Tumblr report had legitimately been bitten.
The “evidence” the animal rights activist from Tumblr submitted was a photo of an animal bite either doctored or taken straight from Google.
Tumblr….really? I know there are a lot (a LOT) of fuckheads on this site but this is a new low. This is absolutely sadistic and is complete abuse of the anonymity system this site so graciously provides.
I don’t care who did it, I want to know why. I mean, congratulations! You won! The fox got euthanized! GG, bro(ette)! In my eyes, this has become honestly the ultimate scumhole of the internet (even /b/ is starting to fall behind). Anon hate, keyboard warriors, bigoted arguments, people who can’t admit they’ve done wrong, absolute NUTJOBS who somehow have the audacity to say they’re “for equality” and now this.
I’m fucking done with this site. No, really. I’m done with it. This is absolutely wrong.
Oh, before I forget, here’s a picture of Vader.
Something in this picture is not like the rest.
I am so sorry.

What would your last meal be?
Only two slices of pizza? I would have the whole fucking pizza.
not sure how true this is but: the one olive guy thought that an olive tree would grow inside of him after his death. so his death would bring life and be a sign of peace.
