Safari Oleg Meerkat Trafficking?

edited January 2015 in The cake stop
On the advert, it appears that Safari Oleg has chosen to stay in Africa and his two accompanying male adults (of which I don't know if either are his father or a legally appointed carer) have 'gone with his decision' and left him there in Africa and started their own journey home, leaving him there.

If one of us took a kid to a foreign country and left them there when they expressed that they wanted to stay we'd be bang in trouble. Or, is this not what it seems and is in fact an example of meerkat trafficking of some kind where money has changed hands? Either way, surely the adult meerkats can't be expected to get away with it.

Unless I have missed some relevant back story or context to this then why is this on TV rather than being investigated by the powers that be?

  • Stop being so Meerkat-ist

    I don't know any meerkats and have no connection to them but I want to make a song and dance about how offended I am by proxy. It's just not PC enough.

    We can have a competition "I'm more offended than you are".

    I'm not that offended to be honest.
    I've used that bloody company since the meerkats came on the scene, and never had a one off them.
    I think its all a fantasy story and meerkats don't even exist. Or zebra's for that matter.

    I've got 3. Running two vehicles helps.

    When you claim one (through the dark underworld of Meerkat trafficking), you get an intriguing Meerkat tracker as it makes it's way to you - Moscow, Oslo, Paris, Copenhagen, Brussels, Glasgow...

    I'm not meerkatist. Some of my best friends are meerkats.

    That old line. Do you even know one Meerkat? What's their name?

    Perhaps they're politician or royal meerkats, I hear they can get away with this sort of abuse.
    All lies and jest..still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest....

    Say what you like about meerkats, they all seem to have very good powers of observation.

    I don't think this is a case of Meerkat trafficking, more a case of wilful abandonment.

    Don't break the suspension of reality, ffs. Some of the more senior members of this forum need a little distraction between pills and prunes.

    But surely it will only be a matter of time before either Madonna or Angelina Jolie adopts him.

    Adoption? He needs to be shot, after all he can't even eat a moth without bringing it up. I blame the Western upbringing which has caused allergies.
