We should all know by now that shark finning is the worst thing ever.
We've had numerous celebs try and put an end to shark finning (like Bo Derek and Leonardo DiCaprio) but people still eat shark fin soup!
Thank goodness Aaron Paul has thrown himself behind the cause so hopefully now some real change is coming!
He recently tweeted:
There's a film called Extinction Soup trying to put an end to shark finning.
Shark finning is cruel and awful and we really hope people check out this movie's indiegogo page and donate to get it off the ground!
Save the sharks!!
Check out the trailer for the movie AFTER THE JUMP!!
We previously mentioned that an American Humane Association (AHA) monitor named Gina Johnson let slip that a tiger almost died while filming Life of Pi!
So even though the movie had a "No Animals Were Harmed" tag, that wasn't exactly true!
A tiger nearly drowned while swimming in a giant tank when he got lost trying to swim to the side.
Life of Pi director Ang Lee opened up about the incident, saying:
Steve Irwin is one of those universally respected icons, and we're happy to see that Bindi — who we saw as a very little girl featured on her dad's show — is growing into such a beautiful young woman (above), one who loves to honor her father!
At 15 years old, she still calls Steve the "greatest dad on the planet," and plans to continue his legacy! Awwww!
Here's what she said about her late dad:
This is just awful!
Whenever we saw that "No Animals Were Harmed" tag at the end of a movie, we felt confident that no animals suffered any sort of abuse.
But according to an internal email from American Humane Association (AHA) monitor Gina Johnson, who was on set during the live tiger scenes in Life of Pi, during one of the few scenes when a live tiger had to be used, the animal almost DIED!
Even though, Gina gave the film the "a-okay," that wasn't the case - and she even let it slip in a confidential email! Hmm, first you put a treasured living creature in harm's way and then you try to cover it up, and admit to malpractice in an email! SUCH A FLAWLESS HUMAN BEING.
They were filming a scene where the tiger was swimming in a giant tank and things went bad. According to an email from Gina:
Ricky Gervais is so funny and talented and smart.
He's really got it together. Especially when it comes towards his view on animals and animal rights.
He went on a twitter rant (which has since been deleted) calling out hunters everywhere!
Poor South Dakota!
It's bad enough they're perpetually forced to play power bottom to North Dakota, a.k.a. our country's other most uninteresting state, but now they're suffering through this!!
Joan Jett signed a contract with state officials to rock out with her lady-c**K out atop SD's Mount Rushmore float at this year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, but some residents think she's bringing shame upon their great state!!!
Believe it or not, the I Love Rock 'n' Roll singer has the gall to be a card-carrying member of PETA! Joan actually supports animal rights!?!
Oh, the indignity! Oh, the horror! Oh, the… what?!
What's wrong with that? Isn't everyone against animal cruelty in this day and age?
Apparently not the South Dakota Cattlemen's Association!
James Cromwell is a talented actor and a huge animal rights activist.
Hell, he's even been arrested during a cat abuse protest!
He's willing to put his freedom on the line for the animals! He's so great!
James narrates a GRAPHIC video of hidden camera footage from within a pig factory farm captured by a Mercy for Animals agent.
The pigs are subjected to beatings, violent medical procedures without pain killers, mama pigs stuck in gestation crates and more awful things.
This is where Walmart gets its pork.
So many other companies and even the entire European Union don't use gestation crates, but Walmart is heartless and awful.
Check out the video (above) to see this awful cruelty, but be aware it is very GRAPHIC!
