LAD Gets Drunk, Sponsors A Jaguar And Forgets All About It For 10 Months

LAD Gets Drunk, Sponsors A Jaguar And Forgets All About It For 10 Months

I think we're all responsible for making stupid purchases just after pay day - especially with the dangers of alcohol and online shopping. I once bought a spray tanning machine, while drunk, for about £120 and I've used it once. It happens.

However, Connor Mulloy went one step further when he was drunk and went ahead and sponsored a jaguar. Yup, you know the deal, the ones on the adverts that are very good at tugging on your heart-strings. They were clearly powerful enough to reel in a Connor, anyway.

Now, there's certainly nothing wrong with sponsoring a jaguar in the wild, it's a good cause, but the problem was that Connor had absolutely no recollection of choosing to adopt the jaguar, who is called Jev, by the way. None at all.

For ten long months, £3 was whizzing out of his account and off to help our feline friends. All without him even knowing.

He told LADbible: "I knew the money was going out since January, but I assumed it was something I'd signed up for, like Spotify or Playstation Plus.

"Then I looked into it the other day and I couldn't actually work out what it was; so I did a bit of research and found it was to a wildlife foundation for a jaguar called Jev.

"I can't remember doing it, in the slightest. It was only when I messaged my mate about jaguar adoption that we realised I'd adopted it on New Year's Eve." Quite a good New Year's Resolution, if you ask me.

So, is Connor some sort of big-cat-fanatic? Nah.

"I'd much rather have adopted a panda to be honest, he tells me. "But I'd feel rude cancelling now so I'm still paying for Jev."
