Meet Carter Blanchard, an 8-year-old boy who developed a skin disorder known as vitiligo and started hating his looks - until he met a special friend with the same condition as his.

Photographer Rob MacInnis gathers barnyard animals that we selected for consumption and production, and turns them into majestic portrait subjects. Everything started when Rob came back from a long journey through South America. Taking photos in places that suffered from extreme poverty made him rethink photography's role in his life and society: "I had a tough time dealing with my relationship to photography after this trip," Rob told Bored Panda. "I felt it irresponsible to ignore the exploitative aspects of photography, especially when making artwork in such a privileged position. I found that photographing animals enabled me to critique both myself and the photographic field."

21-Year-Old Inspires People To Share Photos Of “Vicious Pit Bull Attacks”, And It’s Just Too ‘Scary’

Pit bulls - the breed that probably suffers most because of widespread prejudice against them, implying they are aggressive and vicious. This particularly affects vulnerable bully breeds that end up in a shelter and have lower chances of being adopted if people see them as dangerous. In fact, bully pibbles are the number 1 euthanized breed in the US. Maybe that's why 21-year-old Brittany, who works at the Humane Society in New Braunfels, Texas, couldn't help but post some pictures of adorable bull pooches she met at the shelter - a puppy named Spice and her sister Sugar. To add a little bit of irony to the whole 'pit bulls are to be scared of' situation, Brittany wrote a following caption: "ACTUAL VICIOUS PITBULL ATTACK".
