Biden backs 'Tiger King's' Carole Baskin's 'Big Cat Public Safety Act,' a bipartisan effort to limit exotic animal ownership

  Biden backs 'Tiger King's' Carole Baskin's 'Big Cat Public Safety Act,' a bipartisan effort to limit exotic animal ownership The House is poised to hold a floor vote on the legislation that would restrict the ownership of large cats like tigers soon."The Administration supports H.R. 263, the Big Cat Public Safety Act, which would build on existing laws that protect big cats like tigers, cheetahs, jaguars, and other wild animals living in captivity in the United States," The Office of Management and Budget said in a formal statement of administration policy.

Anya Taylor-Joy and Chris Hemsworth are both in the middle of filming the Mad Max: Fury Road prequel, Furiosa. The film featured Charlize Theron in that role, which she was fantastic. Now, there has been a prequel film that sees Taylor taking on the role of a younger Furiosa. We have been given some great behind-the-scenes shots of both previously mentioned actors in their roles or costumes. The internet sleuths have now found another, this time by showing a good look at Taylor in the titular role. You can see the images below:

One huge distinction that we see is that Anya Taylor-Joy has hair. The Furiosa that we know was completely bald, which could have been a decision she made in her later years. Also, she is wearing a green screen-type wrap on her right arm, which is great considering we know that Furiosa is missing that hand in Max Mad: Fury Road. We have not been given the reason as to why her hand is gone, but we could be seeing that story unfold in the prequel film. Taylor does seem to be in clothing that would suggest that Furiosa is living in a post-apocalyptic world.

Tigers have nearly tripled in Nepal, but at what cost?

  Tigers have nearly tripled in Nepal, but at what cost? The country now has 355 tigers, but critics say the conservation focus has put human neighbors at risk.The country today announced that it has 355 of the endangered cats within its borders, almost tripling its known population since its estimate of 121 tigers in 2009.

Furiosa is meant to show the woman as a teenager into adulthood, we would presume. That could be why Anya Taylor-Joy was selected to portray the character. She can pull off looking like a younger woman, which is odd cause she also can pull off looking older too. The story will be detailing Furiosa’s journey, and how she eventually became under the employment of Immortan Joe. Interestingly, Nathan Jones is returning to portray Rictus Erectus. He was the machine gun-wielding big guy in Mad Max: Fury Road, and the son of Joe.

Everyone has been wondering what Chris Hemsworth’s role in the film is going to be, as he has been shown on set sporting a wild hairdo and beard. The orange hair makes him look like some sort of glorified lumberjack. He could be what Max is to Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road. However, his character is still a mystery. We know that Anya Taylor-Joy is set to portray Furiosa, but that is about all that is known about the plot. The good news is that George Miller is back in the directing chair. He famously directed the original Max Max trilogy, Mad Max: Fury Road, and now is returning for the prequel. Fury Road was highly successful in that the film won six Academy Awards.
