Nearly 40 of Jungle Jack Hanna's Animal Ambassadors die in fire

Posted: 11:26 PM ET

Sad News:

As many of you know, we've had Ambassador-to-the-Animal Kingdom Jungle Jack Hanna on the show numerous times over the years.  Every time he comes to our LA studio, he brings some of the most amazing animals with him (my son Chance can vouch for the leaping frogs!).

Jack has worked with an organization called "Zoo to You" that bring all these amazing animals to the studio. Unfortunately, "Zoo to You" suffered a tremendous setback this past weekend when a fire ripped through one of its buildings, killing nearly 40 animals.  If you want to help them out, you can visit HERE

Lisa Lulu, a Royal Thai macaque, was one of the animals that died in the fire – and HERE's a clip of Lisa on the show with us.

You can also check out some behind-the-scenes pictures of Jack's last visit HERE

Many of us overlook the real ministry that animals have-Jack Hanna and his staff know this fact very well and are grieving the loss of these highly individual friends...............................

Misleading comment from Lars Larson health care

If the US today has the best and most competitive health care system, then ask him why 300,000 Americans die (of unrelated illness, died of something else than the care they were seeking) every year in hospitals around the country published by the American Journal of Medicine, so his comments on social health care are misleading....

Naming the virus contest might be a good idea. My suggestion is Dar fur Fever. I know, it has nothing to do with H1N1 or Mexico, but that is the whole point. This name wouldn't offend the poor Mexican people that have got to put up with all the attention. At first it doesn't sound politically correct, but, the name would draw attention "On A Global Scale" to a problem looking for a solution. And, I doubt anyone in Dar fur is in a position to complain.

I watch CNN news every day and follow the latest topics. I have a question for the doctors: " What is being used to clean suspect and potential suspect areas(lysol, bleach, etc.) and how effective is this in controlling spread of the virus?

Thank You,

Animals should not be kept in captivity! I have visited several zoos when I was younger and my heart broke everytime to see so many animals just hanging around in cages. Overtime they lose their basic annimal insticts such as hunting for their own foods, mating, and defending for themselves and their youngs. They should be set free. Please don't support keeping animals in captivity for research purposes or for entertainment purposes.
