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!

According to an investor's webcast that took place on Monday afternoon, SeaWorld is phasing out their orca shows at their San Diego location after guests responded strongly over the past several years.

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?

Cecil The Lion's Killer Is Cleared — Zimbabwe Says Dr. Walter Palmer's Infamous Hunt Was Legal!

One of the biggest stories of the summer may have finally come to a conclusion.

Walter Palmer, the infamous dentist at the center of the Cecil the lion killing back in Zimbabwe earlier this summer, has been cleared of any wrongdoing in the hunt.

Zimbabwe's Environmental Minister announced on Monday that Palmer was not doing anything illegal when he killed Cecil, and that the Minnesota dentist's papers were in order before the hunt began.

This comes after Zimbabwe officials had earlier hinted they wanted to potentially extradite Palmer back to the African nation to face charges over the hunt — but now, after being cleared by the government, it would seem a potential extradition obviously won't come.

What do U think — did Zimbabwe make the right call on Palmer? Or does he need to face punishment for killing a well-known lion in the manner he did??

Is This The Last We Will Hear Of Dr. Walter Palmer??

Animal crush is a bizarre and awful sexual fetish where small animals like kittens, puppies and bunnies are maimed and/or killed by a performer (in this case, Richards) for the sexual gratification of those watching the video.

The story of Richards' torture is disgusting:
