Ryan Gosling Speaks Up for Animals (Again)
The Academy Award-nominated actor also leapt to the defense of chickens and turkeys on factory farms. Gosling wrote a letter to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) on PETA’s behalf calling on the agency to revoke its approval of a foam-based extermination method that kills birds by submerging them in foam to slowly suffocate them. This process can take up to 15 minutes and is as traumatic and panic-inducing as killing birds by choking them, strangling them, smothering them, or burying them alive.
This isn’t the first time that Gosling has flexed his impressive muscles in birds’ behalf. He previously wrote to KFC and McDonald’s urging the fast-food chains to adopt PETA’s proposed animal welfare reforms.
