Courtney Stodden is "dying" for people to stop buying live animals from PetSmart.

The 21-year-old dressed up as a sexy (dead) mouse on Thursday and joined PETA in an El Lay protest against the pet store's allegedly cruel pet trade.

According to a 15-week PETA investigation, a PetSmart supplier has been accused of gassing animals in plastic bags and setting them aside "to die and waste away." Additionally, the organization says that small animals are being warehoused in plastic bins and even frozen alive.

This is so horrific if true!

Miz Stodden — who laid on the sidewalk in a pool of fake blood — said of the protest:

"It's heartbreaking to think that countless mice, rats, bunnies, and lizards are dying in filthy bins for PetSmart's stores. My friends at PETA and I urge everyone to refuse to shop anywhere that sells live animals!"

Doug Hutchison's bride took to her own Instagram to say:

This story breaks our hearts, but at least there will be some justice here.

Back in December we showed you the upsetting video of Bowmanville Zoo owner Michael Hackenberger, who has provided animals for several productions including the award-winning Life Of Pi, allegedly striking a young Siberian tiger.

In the clip released by PETA, Hackenberger appears to be repeatedly lashing the large cat with a whip and then later explaining the most effective places to hit the animal. The animal trainer later denied PETA's "lies."

In new developments on Wednesday, the Ontario SPCA has charged the trainer with five counts of animal cruelty after thoroughly reviewing his zoo's practices.

| Filed under: ZportzAd CampaignsPETAFootballNFLVeganSexSuper Bowl

Ballsy.

Everyone knows that the two best things about the Super Bowl are the commercials and the halftime show.

But with Coldplay bringing out Beyoncé for this year's musical event, it seems like your favorite companies are really going to have to put their backs into nailing the perfect Super Bowl ad this time around.

Well, we may have already found 2016's winner because PETA's entry for the Panthers vs. Broncos matchup on Sunday, February 7 is not just sexy… it's practically porn.

The "Last Longer" campaign features a meat eater and a vegan each having sex, except the carnivore can't quite keep it up.

We totally see why CBS execs were reportedly left speechless after seeing the advert, but are they for sure banning it? PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange said:

Did Chris Pratt just invent the coolest new diet? No, not the Taco Cleanse.

On Wednesday, the Guardians of the Galaxy star took to Instagram to share a pic of himself (above) packaging some extra fresh deer meat following a recent hunt. Don't tell PETA!

Instead of simply just eating the meat, the Parks and Recreation alum pitch a brand new idea for a diet that he's titled, The Game Plan. Hmm, go on.

This does not look good!

Michael Hackenberger, who has provided animals for several productions, including the award-winning Life Of Pi, was allegedly caught on camera whipping a young Siberian tiger.

In the undercover video obtained by PETA, Hackenberger appears to be striking the large cat with a whip repeatedly as it practices stunts and leaps from one pedestal to another.

In one clip, another trainer holds the tiger on a leash as it rolls on its back as Hackenberger — the director of Bowmanville Zoological Park — seemingly lashes the animal several times.

Another clip showed Hackenberger talking to the person recording the footage, explaining the most effective places to whip the animal — and ironically noting how PETA could destroy them with footage of the training session:

EXCLUSIVE! Courtney Stodden Dresses Up As Little Bo Peep To Warn Us All About The Horrors Of Sheep Shearing!

| Filed under: Exclusives!Courtney StoddenPETAAnimal RightsAnimal CrueltySheep

Courtney Stodden is all about animals!

On Tuesday Courtney Stodden donned her tiniest white tutu to fight for animals' rights, because not all heroes wear capes.

The blonde beauty took a trip to the Hollywood & Highland shopping center — dressed as Little Bo Peep — to raise awareness about the horrors of sheep shearing for PETA's Save The Sheep campaign!

Photos: These Stars Strip To Save Animals!

Now, the 21-year-old is speaking to us exclusively about the true terror these poor animals endure during this painful process, saying:

"The shearing industry is heartbreaking. Not many people are aware of how torturous it really is. Sheep are deprived of food and water before being sheared, in part so that they'll be too weak to put up resistance. But when these naturally nervous prey animals do panic, the shearers stomp and stand on their heads and necks. Workers throw scared sheep around and slam their heads and bodies against hard wooden floors. It's terrible."

Terrible is a total understatement! That's just absolutely cruel and heartless!

What's worse is that the humans putting these creatures through such cruel conditions are so money-driven that they don't even consider the sheep's safety and comfort.

So many stars have stripped for PETA!

Sure, Joss Stone's latest PETA campaign is slightly terrifying. The 28-year-old's body is literally painted in scales, for crying out loud!

However, it's the strongest statements that make the biggest impacts, right?

Photos: These Celebs Are Vegetarians!

For this SKINtillating shot, the organization had its sights set on Hermes, because the fashion line came under fire for receiving its animal skins from farms that keep reptiles in terrible conditions.

But the singer isn't the only celeb who has stripped down to protect animals' rights! In fact, while Joss is still wearing some painted panties, plenty of stars have even gone full-on NUDE!
