Baby Armadillo Drinks Water (Video)

About ninety percent of Texas is in a state of severe, extreme, or exceptional drought, according to Drought Monitor. Near the Rio Grande River and Laredo, most of the land has received less than two inches of rain since October 1. To make matters worse this is oil-drilling country and fracking consumers huge quantities of water. The maker of this video said they haven’t had rain for months, and a baby armadillo came right up to the hose to get a drink and get cooled down. Temperatures there have been over 100 degrees.

Until or unless the drought is over, there should be NO fracking. The wildlife and the people of Texas are more important than oil.

Enough with that mindset already! How stupid can you be? No rain = plenty sun. Fracking = wasted water. Sun = solar power.

I don't know how much more simple I can make it.

It really pisses me off that the armadillo had to ask for water! Dammit, put a dish out there for him. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRrrrrrrrrr.
