Vegetarian taxidermist is branded a 'disgusting murderer' by animal rights activists - but she says she's bringing new meaning to 'lifeless, forgotten animals'

***EXCLUSIVE*** SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, USA: This stunning young vegetarian artist has been labelled a MURDERER online for transforming ‘lifeless forgotten’ animal corpses into art but insists that they are never killed to fulfil her unusual TAXIDERMY hobby and that her work symbolises a ‘new beginning’ for the dead. Student, taxidermist and artist, Kady Rose (25) from Southern California, USA, first got into taxidermy when she started her biology degree at university. Kady, who has always been an animal lover, started to see deceased creatures in a new light and decided that they should still be taken care of and appreciated even after death.  Ever since Kady says she has worked on anywhere between 70 to 100 animals which range from coyotes, foxes and rats to domestic cats and dogs, goats, llamas, raccoons and lynx and even an alligator. An average piece can take anywhere between three days and two weeks to bring back to life. Beautiful pictures show Kady’s incredible art in all its glory which includes a coyote she transformed into the Egyptian god of embalming and the dead, Anubis, and her crystal fox, styled on Vulptex from Star Wars the Last Jedi. Kady is a vegetarian and keen animal rights activist and all the animals she works on are naturally sourced, having either died from old age or as roadkill. As well as this, farms, petting zoos and vets donate animals to her to work on. She spoke about the process she goes through with each animal.

6ft 4in Taekwondo star tells how hurtful whispers made her teenage years hell... and how she battles to find a man due to her height

***EXCLUSIVE*** COUNTY DURHAM, UNITED KINGDOM: This former Team GB athlete now stands proud at SIX-FOOT-FOUR after successfully representing her country in taekwondo and previously spending years hating her height and wishing she was like other girls but admits that dating can sometimes be a struggle as not many men are taller than her. Retired Team GB athlete, lettings negotiator and taekwondo coach, Jade Slavin (26) from County Durham, United Kingdom, has embraced her amazing 6ft 4 height after hating how she looked throughout her school years and being shy thanks to bullies who would poke fun out of her, calling her ‘ugly’ and ‘a freak’. Jade would often go home in tears to her mum, Catherine, thanks to cruel bullies and strangers who would whisper about her in the street and try to take photos without her knowing. This left Jade longing to be shorter like other girls her age but at 16 she decided to try modelling to boost her body confidence but her mindset soon changed for good when she was offered a place to represent Team GB in taekwondo at the age of 21. She went on to win the commonwealth championships in Glasgow in 2014, making two world championships and European championships. It soon became clear to Jade that her height contributed to her success in the sport as she had the leg length that other athletes longed for. Now Jade is proud of who she is and no longer slouches in photos with her friends nor looks down when she is walking down the street and she focusses on the positive reactions she receives for her height instead of the negatives. However, she admits that she sometimes struggles to find clothes to fit her gorgeous 49.9-inch long outside legs and men to date who are a similar height to her as there aren’t many tall guys in her area.

Teenager's family only discovers her secret boyfriend after she is left paralyzed in hospital following a devastating crash - and her devoted beau REFUSED to leave her bedside

***EXCLUSIVE*** CALIFORNIA, USA: This student’s life was changed forever when her car skidded across the road and landed on TOP OF HER, leaving her paralysed in hospital and causing her family to find out about her secret relationship as her boyfriend didn’t leave her bedside. Student, Ellie Skromme (18) from California, USA, was on her way home when she noticed her steering wheel’s alignment seemed off as she was having to steer the wheel towards the left just so she could go straight. Ellie managed as best she could to get home before having to leave for work, as she worked part-time at Kohls, the retail chain. Driving to work down the winding road she took each day, Ellie’s life changed forever as she was left paralysed from the waist down. The rear right tyre blew out and caused the car to roll across the road six times, with Ellie being ejected from the car through the passenger window and having the vehicle land on top of her. A man at a nearby car park overheard the crash and ran to the site, seeing Ellie face down in the dirt under the car. Firefighters dug Ellie out from the dirt and she was transported to a hospital via helicopter. Ellie had kept her boyfriend, Brady, a secret from her family because he was a couple of years older than she was, but once he found out she was in the hospital he didn’t leave her bedside, leaving Ellie’s family to find out very soon about their ongoing romance. Ellie suffered a collapsed lung, fractured collarbone, fractured spine and a brain injury, with bits of glass still to this day coming out of her body. It was clear that Ellie would never walk again as she lost all mobility and independence.  Despite this, Ellie has spent the last year in physical therapy as she is gradually regaining some feeling and motion, starting with wiggling her toes and now she can lift her ankle while standing.

Man, 44, who spent decades being 'controlled by his genitals' vows to stay celibate for TEN YEARS to try and heal himself

***EXCLUSIVE*** MAINE, USA: Meet the man who admits to being controlled by his genitals and embarked on a ten-year journey of celibacy after years of partying, drinking and having one-night-stands that came to a screeching halt when he paid a prostitute for sex. Self-employed entrepreneur and landscaper, Kevin Sullivan (44), from Maine, USA, grew up with no role models to look up to and this resulted in him developing unhealthy sexual behaviours from his early teenage years. He began drinking excessive amounts of alcohol that lowered his inhibitions that resulted in him having numerous one-night-stands with random women. It wasn’t until 2005, when he had his last one-night-stand while living in Maui. Upon waking up the morning after, the woman he slept with informed him that she had cancer and was dying. At that moment, he decided to live a life of celibacy as a means of addressing the issues. It wasn’t until 2013 that this abruptly changed. Kevin had broken deep internal vows that kept him together. Once the vows were broken, his sanity came into question and he was taken to a state psychiatric ward where he would enter and exit the system a number of times over the next two years. During his time in the hospital, he held it together enough to attend a liberal arts college in Vermont. While studying abroad on a programme in central America, he ended up paying a woman for sex. Over time, he met a man in Belize who would repeat a phrase to him that stuck with him until now, ‘what’s a life without a wife?’ This phrase inspired him to find a woman to settle down with. In the meantime, he has reclaimed his celibacy vow and has honoured it since 2015, although he is dating.
