Looks like a circus may be busted after not being so kind to their elephants!

Ryan Gosling Stands Up For Chickens

Ryan Gosling Peta Chickens USDA

This man is a hero!

Not only did he stop a street fight earlier this month, he is also helping PETA urge the U.S. Department of Agriculture to revoke its approval of foam-based extermination.

The method kills birds in a torturous process that can take up to fifteen minutes. The stress they endure in their final minutes is like that of being buried alive.

This is unacceptable.

In a beautiful letter, Ryan Gosling wrote:

If dogs and cats were killed in this way, the person committing these acts would be charged with cruelty to animals.

He continued, asking the USDA to only approve of humane methods, including an alternative that uses carbon dioxide to painlessly render birds unconscious.

He's also written to KFC and McDonald's in the past too.

This man is amazing — on and off screen! Thanks for being such a great role model, Ryan!!
