This man is a 'knight' in latex armor for countless death row animals | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Chris Van Dorn dons the cape and mask to rescue animals through his nonprofit, Batman4Paws.
Al Cannistra's insight:

Weird story I guess – so cut me some slack…  actually sharing to recognize the superheroes out there and to honor a close friend, one of the most intelligent guys I know – he too does the rescues (sans costume – I think) and has in his personal plane for many years….  The folks that fly animal rescues at their own time and expense are very special people – thank you MB, thank you all...
