Tonight, on her CNN Headline News show, PETA pal Jane Velez-Mitchell is going after gun-slinging Go Daddy CEO Bob Parsons. Jane will be hosting PETA campaigner Ashley Byrne, who will talk about Parsons’ gunning down of an elephant in Zimbabwe, although anyone who is smart enough to pronounce the words “bloodthirsty millionaire CEO” can see that there are many ways to keep elephants from getting into villagers’ crops that don’t involve violence.

Also on tonight’s show, True Blood‘s Kristin Bauer will talk with Jane about a group of 14 chimpanzees who were “retired” to New Mexico’s Alamogordo Primate Facility after years of torment in cruel experiments, only to be dragged back to a laboratory by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to be used in more invasive tests. PETA and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine are working to get the animals retired for good.
Issues With Jane Velez-Mitchell airs tonight on CNN Headline News at 7 p.m. ET. If you take issue with cruelty to animals like Jane does, send an e-mail to Bob Parsons telling him you won’t be using Go Daddy’s services until he agrees to stop blowing away animals. And tell the NIH and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that the Alamogordo chimpanzees need to retire right now.
