Here's taking a stand!

Willie Nelson has cancelled an upcoming concert at Florida’s SeaWorld due to criticism from animal rights activists, surrounding the controversial doc Blackfish.

The event was scheduled for next year and it was supposed to be a part of SeaWorld's Bands, Brew & BBQ events.

Officially, he blamed scheduling conflicts, which is true if the schedule conflicts with his moral code! Ha! No, but really, it seems like it's just a growing trend in performers thinking twice before going ahead and performing at a park that keeps animals in captivity.

In fact, interestingly enough, The Barenaked Ladies have also snubbed the event over animal rights issues, saying:

Willie Nelson Stands Up For Pitbulls In Ohio

Filed under: PolitikPetsDogPit Bull

Animal lover Willie Nelson is asking for change in Ohio.

In the Midwestern state, pit bulls are labeled as "vicious" by law while other breeds are labeled IF they have killed or seriously injured a human or another dog.

The music legend has written an email asking the Ohio Senate to appeal the law he calls "archaic.

Willie sent the following email:

Ohio is the only state that discriminates against dogs who share a cluster of physical characteristics by classifying this group as ‘vicious’ without any regard to individual dog behavior…These dogs are considered ‘vicious’ at birth, even though there are countless dogs of unknown heritage who are deemed ‘pit bulls’ who are wonderful family pets. In addition to being beloved pets, many ‘pit bulls’ are show dogs, search and rescue dogs, and service dogs. The current law infringes on responsible dog owners’ rights to own any dog they choose, no matter what the dog’s appearance. Dogs, like people, are individuals and should each be judged on his/her own merits.

Toledo, OH has spend a large amount of money euthanized dogs resembling pit bulls.

The bill has currently passed the Ohio House by a 69-29 vote.

Supporters have also asked that each breed of dog be judged individually as well.

Way to go, dog lovers! Teddy says thank you!
