An injustice of galactic proportions

This is probably old news to my astronomer friends, but I can't believe that even as you read this post, our "galaxy", the Milky Way, is cannibalizing an innocent bystander, the Canis Major Dwarf galaxy.  

Here I thought our galaxy was pretty amazing in its own right, but it's really just a space hog.
