| Filed under: Exclusives!Courtney StoddenPETAAnimal RightsAnimal CrueltySheep

Courtney Stodden is all about animals!

On Tuesday Courtney Stodden donned her tiniest white tutu to fight for animals' rights, because not all heroes wear capes.

The blonde beauty took a trip to the Hollywood & Highland shopping center — dressed as Little Bo Peep — to raise awareness about the horrors of sheep shearing for PETA's Save The Sheep campaign!

Now, the 21-year-old is speaking to us exclusively about the true terror these poor animals endure during this painful process, saying:

"The shearing industry is heartbreaking. Not many people are aware of how torturous it really is. Sheep are deprived of food and water before being sheared, in part so that they'll be too weak to put up resistance. But when these naturally nervous prey animals do panic, the shearers stomp and stand on their heads and necks. Workers throw scared sheep around and slam their heads and bodies against hard wooden floors. It's terrible."

Terrible is a total understatement! That's just absolutely cruel and heartless!

What's worse is that the humans putting these creatures through such cruel conditions are so money-driven that they don't even consider the sheep's safety and comfort.

So many stars have stripped for PETA!

Sure, Joss Stone's latest PETA campaign is slightly terrifying. The 28-year-old's body is literally painted in scales, for crying out loud!

However, it's the strongest statements that make the biggest impacts, right?

For this SKINtillating shot, the organization had its sights set on Hermes, because the fashion line came under fire for receiving its animal skins from farms that keep reptiles in terrible conditions.

But the singer isn't the only celeb who has stripped down to protect animals' rights! In fact, while Joss is still wearing some painted panties, plenty of stars have even gone full-on NUDE!

An unnamed park representative, speaking on the webcast for investors, said of the decision to cut back on the park's killer whale shows:

"The main point is we are listening to our guests. We are evolving as a company, we are always changing."

While the park can say they are listening to their guests, this news may actually be in direct response to recent changes of the law in California.

German Tourist Reportedly Pays $60,000 To Kill One Of The Biggest Elephants Zimbabwe Has Seen In Decades

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooWacky, Tacky & TrueAnimal RightsElephantsAnimal CrueltyHuntingViral: Animals

The elephant was supposedly over 50 years old.

Not another one.

On Friday, wildlife groups in Zimbabwe revealed that a German tourist paid top dollar to kill one of the biggest elephants the nation has seen in years.

According to reports, the hunter shelled out $60,000 to fatally shoot the giant creature, who was believed to be more than 50 years old.

Emmanuel Fundira, chairman of the Safari Operators Association of Zimbabwe, said the animal was murdered on October 8 just outside Gonarezhou National Park.

He explained that, because of the elephant's size, it shouldn't have been gunned down. Rather, he feels it should have been considered a "national treasure," saying it was:

"so huge its tusks were almost hitting the ground while it was standing. We have never seen any animal that big."

He added that humans need to stop being so casual about taking the lives of innocent wildlife:

"We need to discipline ourselves and hold such iconic things sacred."

A spokeswoman for Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority says the hunt was legal only if the proper paperwork was issued, and added that she was not aware of the incident.

Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force chairman Johnny Rodrigues is disgusted by the unnamed tourist's actions, commenting that the country hadn't witnessed an elephant that large in decades:

"The last time one was seen (of such size) was more than 40 years ago. The hunter should not have shot it."

It'll be interesting to see if this sparks the same kind of outrage that Cecil the lion's death did. What do U think, Perezcious readers?
