Renowned comedian, actor, presenter, and all-around swell guy, put his money where his mouth is. Ricky Gervais, the host of the 2016 Golden Globes, is not only part of Hollywood’s A list, but he is also a staunch advocate of animal rights.
Gervais, or Ricky to his friends, gave out a rather personal commendation. An award that had nothing to do with the fanfare of Tinsel Town, but was perhaps far more important than the ego stroke that’s so common in that community.
Killer, a Belgian Malinois tracking dog, was the recipient of this medal. A medal that honors his dedication, hard work and, above all, his valor. Killer’s efforts have prevented the poaching of rhinoceros in South Africa’s Kruger National Park.
The dog’s relentless pursuit of bandits has napped over 110 would be animal poachers. Each capture not only stopping a senseless slaughter but helping the ecosystem recover the rhino’s population without the ill interference of vile villains.
‘Killer does fantastic work in Kruger National Park,’ Gervais told the BBC. ‘He helped capture dozens of poachers in the last year alone, thanks to his amazing courage and dedication.’ Go to the next page to see the rest of the story.
Gervais’ support is greatly appreciated by South African authorities and different Animal Protection groups of that area. A publicity stunt that helps shed some limelight on an ongoing plight.
