Animal rescue is a messy, heartbreaking, unpredictable undertaking by its very nature. All honest and ethical rescues know this. They all accept the reality that with the great highs there will also be devastating lows, but it doesn’t stop them from taking the cases that need their help, any case. It is lives that they are trying to save, not people they are trying to entertain.
At least that’s how real rescue works. How does Viktor Larkhill Entertainment do it? How does that reality show with the bloated host and low production values guarantee a good episode for his adoring fans? How does it guarantee its questionably high success rate? Well, you do it the Viktor Larkhill way: You pick and choose only the cases that will give you the highest probability of success.
Don’t believe us. Don’t ever believe us. Just believe the man himself. He has a bad habit of writing down his sins to people in secret groups as some sort of bonding ritual.
This little gathering of his flying monkeys and the “man” himself are in a secret group discussing Patrick, a recent Let’s Adopt Global rescue in Indonesia. The clone of Viktor Larkhill, Rima Nur, mentions Lady. Odd to mention Lady as an example of success when Lady died because Viktor Larkhill illegally brought Rocket into Spain from India without following any quarantine protocols or vaccinations resulting in the avoidable death of both by distemper.
He also mentions Leo. It’s a good thing that the beloved internet darling, Leo, was “predictable” or the “Great Extreme Rescuer” would never have taken his case on. It begs the question: How many suffering victims of violent abuse and torture, or illness have been ignored by Viktor Larkhill because their cases weren’t “predictable”, because their cases weren’t optimal for his success. And, well, it’s obvious that if Viktor Larkhill were still running Let’s Adopt Global that Patrick would have been ignored and dead right now. Instead, Patrick appears to be thriving. We think we are beginning to like the new Let’s Adopt! Global without “predictability”.
Why is “predictability” and control a main factor in Viktor Larkhill taking on cases? Again, the man tells you himself. “[He] refuses to put [his] name behind it.” In other words, it is about style, brand, image and presentation to maximize donations. Donations he needs to keep feeding his life and at last check he still is not employed anywhere else, so literally feeding him. What it is not is actually about saving lives. If it were, this qualification — to have a predictable outcome — would not even be on the table. Life and death decisions are made in rescue everyday. Should predictability and guaranteed outcomes really be a part of that decision process? It is if you are entertaining fans.
