But honestly, it wouldn't surprise us in the slightest. Miley Cyrus is such a huge animal advocate that we could totally see her making the switch one day.
But for right now, she knows she needs to be the voice for her furry friends.
The pop princess has been speaking out on social media about the wolf cull in British Columbia, Canada a lot lately, but she and her brother Braison recently took a trip up to the Great Bear Rainforest to visit scientists and activists and get an up-close glimpse at the wildlife the government is trying to regulate.
Canadian officials are hoping to increase the number of wolves killed this year, in order to protect the endangered caribou population.
So, Miley joined forces with Pacific Wild to raise awareness about the cull and how she thinks it should be stopped. While she was there, she explained that sometimes she gets upset that her career is in music and not animal research, saying:
