Ewan
McGregor
 caught praise from PETA for going “salmon fishing in the Yemen” with fake fish, and now he’s helping ocean animals of the larger variety. Ewan
was one of the many people who were affected by acclaimed marine park exposés The Cove and this year’s Blackfish. And he urged all parents
to get educated about marine parks
 before they consider buying a ticket,
tweeting, “‘Black Fish’ and ‘The Cove’ should be watched before deciding
to take your kids to any sea life parks.”

Apparently, a lot of parents are
listening. SeaWorld’s
share price has dropped 25 percent since July
, likely owing to the parks’ plummeting attendance. PETA had purchased stock in
SeaWorld
 during its initial public offering so that we could propose shareholder
resolutions in favor of the animals held captive there. But we’re more than
happy for this investment to take a nosedive.

And elsewhere on Twitter, everyone was
talking about Los Angeles’ bullhook ban, Meatless Monday, and the unconditional
love of dogs:

  • Maybe
    parenthood will make Kim Kardashian and Kanye West more compassionate. PETA sent them a faux-mink throw for their engagement in hopes that they will see the light and switch to warm and warmhearted faux fur.
  • As
    the Spanish senate prepares to vote on a bill that would protect bullfighting by granting the cruel spectacle “cultural heritage status,” Pamela Anderson wrote to the senators to stress that bullfighting doesn’t need protection—bulls
    do. “Tormenting bulls for entertainment
    belongs to the Dark Ages, not the 21st century,” she wrote. “Please
    take a compassionate stance against this cruel pastime by rejecting the bill to
    protect bullfighting.”

  • Freida Pinto made sure her birthday was happy for animals, too—she celebrated with a vegan
    red velvet cake.
  • We
    weren’t at all surprised to learn that top-notch environment and animal rights
    advocate Daryl Hannah has
    gone vegan
    . In
    an interview at the Environmental Media Awards, she explained her decision,
    saying that factory farms are “inhumane” and that they “are producing massive amounts of
    pollution and methane into our atmosphere, which is a more potent greenhouse
    gas than carbon.” 
  • And
    congrats, too, to our buddy Lance
    Bass
    , who has gone vegetarian. He’s wanted to make the switch for a few months, and his friends at PETA were
    confident that it wouldn’t take long for him to transition to the happy,
    healthy meat-free life.
