Rihanna

Photo Triggers Arrest

Over Cute, Furry, Deadly Creatures

Rihanna flirted with death and then triggered arrests after posting a pic of an adorable little animal ... that can kill you.

Rihanna was in Phuket, Thailand and posed with a loris.  Seems innocent enough.

Here's the problem.  The critter is an endangered animal indigenous to Southeast Asia and there's a law that says you can't charge tourists money to take pics with endangered primates.

Rihanna Instagrammed the photo and people started bitching in Phuket.  Authorities corralled the 2 guys who took the photo -- ages 16 and 20 -- and busted them.

FYI -- Loris carry poison that can be deadly.  When they get pissed off they release the toxins from their elbow, put the juice in their mouth and if it touches humans they can go into anaphylactic shock.

P.S.  Rihanna also went to some sex shows.  That can kill you too.

I think the loris looks like Chris Brown. I wonder if poison comes out of his elbow . . .

How do you pronounce the name of that town? It looks like what Rihanna was thinking when she was posing with poisonous furry creatures and then attending sex shows.

Sumbody is holding that animal FOR HER. If you look at her right hand, it's like she's just putting it by the loris to just show off her nails or sumthin...Duh

You see those people in tourist areas of Thailand all the time. The poison really isn't something to worry about if you are just snapping a picture. The problem, and why it is illegal, is the people with them go out in the forests and capture wild ones. They are so slow that they can't run away if found.
