This is really sad to hear.

Olivia Munn isn't just beautiful, smart and famous… she's also compassionate — her best quality if you ask us!
Last week, she wrote a plea for help on behalf of a poor elephant named Nosey.
Nosey the circus elephant suffers from debilitating arthritis and Olivia took it upon herself to write a letter on PETA's behalf to Tom Vilsack, the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture. It read:
Olivia Munn, being of Chinese descent, felt compelled to do something about the fur trade.
China is the largest exporter of fur and they kill dozens and dozens of animals every day.
They kill the animals in some of the cruelest ways possible and even skin some alive, then leave them to die in a bloody pile of still living, breathing, skinned creatures.
There's nothing that gets Olivia Munn more excited than three elephants being set free!
Ok…maybe there are some other things, but we're sticking to our guns!
Olivia sent a victory tweet about three Toronto Zoo elephants and their transfer to a sanctuary.
Olivia Munn is a woman of many talents. TV star, movie star. Basically you name it - she can do it.
So when her and PETA learned that Groupon had partnered up with circuses, like Barnum Brothers, that are known to abuse their elephants - Munn picked up her pen and became an activist for a worthwhile cause.
Here's what she said:
Olivia Munn got totally naked for the latest ad in PETA's "I'd Rather Go Naked" anti-fur campaign.
There will be a billboard in el lay featuring only the top half of Munn. We guess because the rest of her was too hot for the average billboard viewer to handle.
The ad reads:
"Who needs fur to feel beautiful?"
About the ad, Olivia said:
"When you think about even that little tiny trim of fur on your gloves or on your collar, that is still coming from an animal that had to endure so much pain just for you.
There’s nothing good about pretending like you don’t know."
Show a little skin, get a little publicity, help save some animals… sounds good to us!
Lookin' good, gurl!
Olivia Munn is a big animal lover and activist. She even stripped down for a PETA billboard calling for circus boycotts.
Now she has taken to twitter to support a bill that calls for a ban on exotic animals in traveling circuses.
"THIS would be THE PERFECT way to start 2012"
Then she shared a link to an article about the bill.
The bill would add to the Animal Welfare Act and restrict the use of wild and exotic animals in traveling circuses.
The Rep. who introduced the bill to Congress last November said:
Olivia Munn has done a PSA for PETA on behalf of Sarah the elephant.
Sarah is arthritic and suffering from a chronic infection.
Oh and did we mention she is actively performing in the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus?
She is still forced into tight boxcars, made to keep up with the other elephants and one time, even collapsed while being loaded onto a train, and still performed in the show the next day.
Check out the above PSA to get some more details on this sad story.
