Animal cruelty doesn’t seem to be nearing its end. From Yulin festival to circuses, animals are mercilessly being used for consumption and pleasure. And while animal rights activists are doing their best to make the world a better place for these creatures, they are still left speechless at the atrocities meted out to animals.
In a shocking revelation that comes straight from London, rich folks are installing anti-bird spikes on trees to prevent birds from pooping on their expensive cars. Because BMWs and Audis are so expensive, hurting birds seems like a noble idea?
People residing in posh neighbourhoods of Bristol say that the spikes have been installed solely to protect their cars. In their defence, they did try other measures to keep the birds at bay – such as hanging a “wooden bird of prey in the branches” but to no avail.
These anti-bird spikes, that can easily be bought online, are generally used on trees, windowsills, and ledges.
Critics feel that putting spikes on trees where birds usually perch is a really ‘shitty’ move.
Our war on wildlife: now birds are not allowed in trees…?! Pigeon spikes spotted in Clifton, Bristol above a car park. Has anyone seen this before? How is it allowed?!

This is quite possibly the most idiotic thing I’ve ever seen this year! Bird spikes on a tree, truly bonkers 🤨. https://t.co/oWGrftABpv

One critic, however, had a brilliant plan to hit back at these car lovers.
I might pop round with a bucket full of birdshit and just throw it on their cars. https://t.co/LDM8PRDDLV

This is not the first incident where people have been labelled as ‘cruel’ for hurting other creatures.
This image from a Russian circus has come under fire after people claimed that the lions and tigers were fattened on a junk diet before their performance.
Another incident revealed a horrifying discovery where a beer was reportedly mated with a dog. Images of the bear dog left animal rights activists shocked who slammed ‘cruel breeding’ of animals.
Is there an end to this horror? Will humans evolve and embrace every creature as part of nature, as nature intended them to be? The questions remain but without answers.
