Edie Falco is a big animal lovers and a lover of big animals!
She starred in a video for PETA recently, urging parents not to take their kids to the circus.
No, it's not because she doesn't want kids to have fun or parents to do nice things for them.
It's because circuses are so so so cruel!!
Specifically, elephants get it so bad!
Since a very young age, they are tied down, poked, prodded and beaten into submission.
So Edie did a video with PETA and said:
"It was important for me to team up with PETA to speak for the elephants because there's still so much that goes on that I don't know about. What actually goes on behind the scenes in regards to animal abuse. The more I hear, the more I'm shocked."
We're so glad she gave some of her valuable time to do something for the elephants!
Animals everywhere (and caring people) thank you, Edie!!
