Bob Barker News Archive
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 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!
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.
Earlier this week, Bob Barker sent out a letter to the legislators in Wyoming on behalf of PETA urging them not to pass House Bill 126, which would protect animal abusers… and thanks to the former game show host, the bill kicked the bucket in committee on Tuesday!!
We're so excited about this that we don't even know what to do with ourselves. LOLz
Barker is definitely an inspiration, and we love that he LOVES animals just as much as we do.
Go 'head with your bad self, Bob!!
