The elephants are now free to roam around their 2,000-acre reserve!

Bob just couldn't let those elephants rot at the zoo, saying:

We previously mentioned that Bob Barker was trying to get the University of Washington to stop using live cats as part of their pediatric training program.

Instead of using live babies, obvi, the university needed a stand-in… so they went with live cats!!

Most schools use mannequins for training, instead of poor, sedated kitties, so Bob tried to get them to switch.

He offered the school $75,000 to change to state-of-the-art simulators, if they'd stop using cats…

Bob Barker Speaks Against Live Pigeon Shoots

| Filed under: Sad SadBirdsBob BarkerHunting

Bob Barker is one serious animal advocate!

But now, instead of asking pet owners to make sure their animals get spayed or neutered, Bob is campaigning on behalf of pigeons.

In Pennsylvania, a barbaric event takes place… live pigeon shoots!

People go to literally shoot at live pigeons as targets.

What's awful is that many of the birds aren't instantly killed.

They're left to wallow on the ground, many drowning in their own blood. Some take hours to die.

It's all just so terrible.

Check out the video (above) to hear Bob's plea and see some GRAPHIC footage from an actual live shooting event.

Bob Barker Pays For Toronto Zoo Elephants To Be Airlifted To California!

| Filed under: ZooElephantsBob Barker

barkerBob Barker loves helping animals of all sizes!

Three aging elephants - Toka, Thika and Iringa - currently reside at the Toronto Zoo, but it is getting to the point where the zookeepers, animal activists, and Bob Barker want to retire them over at California.

But that's a long trek!

And Elephants can't drive, so it isn't like they can go on a road trip.

Luckily, Canadians are known for their generosity - so the elephants will be getting an air lift from the Royal Canadian Air Force C-17.

And they'll get by with a little help from Mr. Barker!

bob barker stands up against ag gag billsBob Barker recently had Wyoming's House Bill 126 thrown out, which would've protected animal abusers, but considering that he's a big animal lover, he still has more ag-gag bills to take on!

The former Price Is Right host is now going up against Arkansas, Indiana, New Mexico, Nebraska, Tennessee and Pennsylvania because congressmen in those states are considering bills that would keep people who commit animal cruelty under wraps.
