Vladimir Putin Shoots Whale with Crossbow

Heads up, Sarah Palin: Crossbowing-Whales-From-An-Inflatable-Raft is the new Shooting-Wolves-From-A-Helicopter.

Just yesterday, Russian President Vladmir Putin “took part in a wildlife experiment” (Read: tough guy photo op) where he fired a crossbow dart into an endangered grey whale to gather a skin sample.

He later bragged to cameras, “”We tried to work with three or four whales, but we only got one … I had a rush: three times I missed, but the fourth time I hit it.”

Meanwhile, all of Russia is on fire.
