Witch Zoos Are Selling Disney "Fairy Tales"

Now we're grandstanding the killing of lions, too? Who gave this self-righteous Dr. Death control over these animals?

Maybe next time we plan a family day out, we should go to a hospital to watch strangers die. It's about time my kids quit living in this fairy world called happiness.

Nutsy was the vulture from Robin Hood. The dog who gets hit by the carriage is Trusty. And he doesn't die.
