EXCLUSIVE! Courtney Stodden Dresses Up As Little Bo Peep To Warn Us All About The Horrors Of Sheep Shearing!
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!
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.
The Celebrity Big Brother alum also told us:
Well, this isn't the usual kind of lamb we see, but it's still a miracle!
This two-headed lamb was born five days ago at Slope Point Backpackers accommodations in New Zealand — and the owners Andrew Wilson and Justine Parker gave it the best name ever:
This is so amazing! We wish all animals could breed and make crazy hybrids!
Our favorite as of now, right next to liger, is the geep.
No, it's not a giraffe/sheep combo or something crazy… It's a goat/sheep! And it's stupid cute!
Irish farmer, Paddy Murphy, who found one of his sheep looked a little
There was a sheepstorm in Paris but it certainly wasn't in the weather forecast.
French farmers wanted to protest the European Union's agricultural policy, so what better way to get the people's attention than by marching sheep into a public space.
But not just any public space… the Lourve!!
Several farmers and one seriously cute sheepdog herded
HA! Omg that sheep is HIGHlarious!!!
We've seen about a billion screaming goat videos but this guy is special!
He doesn't just yell or making weird noises…
He screams his face off for a really long time!!
It kinda sounds like if Ray Romano got punched in the nuts by Mike Tyson.
Close your eyes, and picture that image as vividly as you can and listen to just the audio of this video, you'll see what we mean.
Check out the video (above) to see a Barbary sheep yelling like a nut-punched Ray Romano!
This is just so awful!
Two men from Tecumseh, Ontario are facing several criminal charges in one of the largest farm animal cruelty cases in years!!
The Windsor-Essex County Humane Society said they found over a dozen dead animals: ten pigs, two ducks and two sheep at the farm just east of Windsor.
The poor piggies who remained alive were starving, and many of them had turned to cannibalism to survive!
Holly Chugg Jones and Julian Light suffered an awful tragedy when their dog Dobby fell off a cliff in the UK!!
They had to go home, sad and alone, after they searched but found no sign of their dearest doggy.
"The coastguard were there within 15 minutes but it was getting dark and so we had to go back to the campsite although I didn't want to leave. I didn't sleep a wink, I was so upset. The next morning the search started again but there was nothing we could do but sit in our car and watch. It was awful. I kept imagining Dobby dead in a ditch or washed out to sea."
Then, miraculously two days later, a lifeboat crew found the one-year-old pup!
