Ladies, go ahead and swoon (or swine) because the Canadian actor (and now director) has just partnered up with the Farm Sanctuary and Humane Society International/Canada to help more than one million breeding pigs on Canadian farms.
What is this Hollywood hunk calling for? The elimination of gestation crates—metal cages that hold breeding pigs so tightly that they can't even turn around—in the Code of Practice for the care and handling of pigs.
"I applaud NFACC for working to improve life for Canada's pigs," Gosling wrote it a Globe and Mail opinion piece, "and hope it will close this dangerous loophole by disallowing the pork industry from confining pigs for weeks at a time–something that I would never dream of doing to [my dog] George, and that no compassionate Canadian would ever do to any animal."
