Kellan Lutz Wants To Stop Cruel Crustacean Slaughter Methods

| Filed under: Sad SadKellan LutzPETASea CreaturesDisgusting!Animal Cruelty

Kellan Lutz wants to save lobsters from a painful, agonizing death!

Kellan Lutz is so hunky, strong, caring, hunky, talented and hunky.

He also cares about animals that most people wouldn't think need a champion.

After seeing a video of a slaughterhouse in Maine shelling lobsters while they're still alive, Kellen knew something had to be done.

So he penned an open letter to the Linda Bean factory, writing:

"I’m not a vegetarian, but I know cruelty when I see it. I watched as conscious lobsters were torn apart by your employees, who then threw them into dumpsters to die slowly and painfully, treating them as if they were trash rather than living beings."

Kellen, along with PETA, is calling for the slaughterhouse to consider a more humane system, giving the creatures a quick, painless death.

It's the least we can do for them!

Check out the undercover video AFTER THE JUMP!! but BEWARE it is GRAPHIC!

Geri Halliwell Liquors Up With A Camel's Humps!

| Filed under: Geri HalliwellPETAAlcoholCamel

Did Geri Halliwell really feed scotch to a camel??

WHOA! Geri Halliwell! What are you doing?!

We understand wanting to feed cutie animals but Johnny Walker Red Label??

Even if that's what they asked for, clearly that camel has a drinking problem!

You shouldn't be an enabler! Help that camel out! LOLz!

Obviously we're joking, that's clearly milk in that bottle.

Why the bottle is an old scotch bottle, we do not know.

Maybe someone thought it was funny. All we thought was to call up PETA and have them helicopter in and snatch up Geri and take her away to animal abuser jail.

Luckily, Geri is a total sweetheart who loves animals! She'd never feed scotch to animal! And if she did we bet she'd at least make it Black Label! Ha!

| Filed under: TV NewsPETAElephantsDisgusting!Animal Cruelty

NRA-sponsored TV show about killing elephants get canceled!!

The National Rifle Association (NRA) sponsored TV show Under Wild Skies has been canceled!

The show came under fire after it showed an elephant being shot to death and its host, Tony Makris' awful commentary.

He said things like he killed the elephant "in its bedroom" and that it was "cheeky" when it tried to escape death, only to be shot.

Animal lovers everywhere have obviously been calling for the show's cancelation for a while now.

Thankfully, it was the host's own dumb words that got the show pulled from the air.

Speaking about his critics, Tony said:

We previously mentioned that PETA wasn't too happy with Katy Perry's animal filled music video.

She recently dropped the video for her new song Roar and in it, and there are several animal actors.

PETA's Merrilee Burke was upset, saying things like:

"What you may not know — as most people do not — is that animals used for entertainment in film and television endure horrific cruelty and suffer from extreme confinement and violent training methods."

But as we already knew, Katy is a HUGE animal lover and so of course she wouldn't do anything to endanger or overly stress an animal!

So she fired back in a letter from the American Humane Association, saying:

PETA has seen Katy Perry's Roar and they did NOT like what they saw!

Earlier this month, the seksi singer released the official music video for her hit single, and it featured tons of animals from tigers to tarantulas to elephants as she makes her transformation into Jane Goodall!

However, PETA spokeswoman Merrilee Burke criticized the use of animal actors in the music video and said they are often forced to live in terrible conditions:
