In case you need another reason to love Ryan Gosling, here you go. Last week, proud Canadian, actor, eye-candy, and animal lover Gosling wrote a charming letter to The Globe and Mail to declare his outrage at the inhuman treatment of pregnant pigs, and praise Canada's National Farm Animal Care Council for trying to help stop it.
He noted that he was "so heartened to learn that Canada is taking steps toward improving the treatment of animals in the food supply." Including stopping the horrifying treatment of forcing mother pigs to spend most of their pregnancy in a "tiny cage so small they can't even turn around."
Even worse? As soon as they give birth (in another crate) they are reimpregnated and forced back in the tiny cage! Gosling also breaks your heart with this: "These extremely social and intelligent animals lose their minds from being denied any social or psychological stimulation at all." How terrible! We can help to by joining the Humane Society International!
Way to go Ryan Gosling, and way to go Canada! Read the whole piece HERE.
