We feel like PETA is like a little kid trying to figure out which parent to ask for more ice cream. Who is more likely to satiate their sweet tooth… but for a pretty decent reason.

When PETA heard that Disney was remaking Dumbo, they asked that the studio change the film's ending.

The original Dumbo ends with the eponymous elephant becoming a hit circus act and everything ends happily!

Not alright, alright, alright…

People are up in arms over a ranch that Matthew McConaughey either owns or used to own (still very unclear) with his brother Mike that offers whitetail deer hunting in an enclosed 22,000 acres with high fences.

Basically, the deer are trapped, and animal rights groups claim that they mostly congregate around feeding areas, which means they're easy targets.

Here's the thing: the Mertzon, Texas ranch's website lists Matthew as a co-owner, but Matthew's rep stated that he hasn't owned the ranch since 2011.

Matthew's nephew Madison (who's the ranch cattle manager) had the following to say about the actor's involvement:

Kai was found tied to a railing outside of a train station. A suitcase of all his belongs (pillow, toy, food bowl and food) sat by his side.

That is the saddest image ever.

It's a New Year's miracle!

Brasstown, NC, has gained a lot of press over the past couple years because of their weird New Year's Eve tradition of dropping a live opossum as the clock strikes midnight.

However, it looks like PETA and other animal rights advocates are getting their Christmas wish because live opossums will no longer be used to celebrate the new year!
