Steve-O Protests Zoo, Isn't Such A 'Jackass' After All

For a guy who makes his living being flung into the air in a used outhouse, “Jackass” daredevil Steve-O is a pretty cool guy. Why? He’s a committed vegan and often spends his spare time championing animal rights! He has even sounded off on breast cancer awareness in the past.

Steve-O recently joined PETA to protest outside the Edmonton Valley Zoo. The star stood in the cold with other protesters to send a message to the zoo: let Lucy the elephant go free!

“I’m sympathetic to Lucy because I know that elephants in their natural habitat will walk some 30 miles every day,” said Steve-O. “I don’t understand how the zoo’s able to keep her. It seems so black and white.”

Lucy has been kept in the zoo for over 30 years, and is experiencing a number of health problems as a result: she suffers from arthritis, chronic foot problems, and a respiratory illness, all most likely caused by her inability to walk the ranges that she would out in the wild. Because she lives in the cold of Edmonton, the zoo must keep her in a barn for months out of the year. Additionally, Lucy is kept alone and is without the company of other elephants.

Steve-O’s involvement with PETA goes a long way back, as the “Jackass” star has protested everything from fur to frog dissection. This time around, Steve-O joins William Shatner, Bob Barker and NHL pro Georges Laraque in his fight to get Lucy out of the zoo and send her to a sanctuary. We applaud you all!
