Steve Wynn Will Includes Animals But Not Like Ingrid Newkirk

Written by Vegetarian Star on November 9th, 2010 in Animal Issues, Business.

We’ve already discovered that Steve Wynn has changed his will to include donations to the Humane Society if he should go to that big casino in the sky anytime soon.

Wynn insists he’s nowhere near that point, but still wanted to show his concern for animals.

He told Las Vegas Weekly:

“I’ve become an animal rights activist. I’m taken care of myself for the rest of my life. So I decided to change my will the last few days in case I croak. I’m not about to, and I’m not planning on that for a long time. But I’ve changed my will to show my concern for animal rights.”

Wynn explained that conditions found in factory farms were some of the motivators to change his diet and will.

“I don’t want any more concentration camps for animals that are cruelly treated, force fed to fatten themselves up for our consumption.”

We don’t have a copy of Wynn’s will, but we’re sure it reads nothing like PETA’s President and co-founder, Ingrid Newkirk‘s, does.

Newkirk wants her body donated to animal rights–literally. A few statements from the will.

“That the “meat” of my body, or a portion thereof, be used for a human barbecue, to remind the world that the meat of a corpse is all flesh, regardless of whether it comes from a human being or another animal, and that flesh foods are not needed.”

“That one of my eyes be removed, mounted, and delivered to the administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a reminder that PETA will continue to be watching the agency until it stops poisoning and torturing animals in useless and cruel experiments; that the other is to be used as PETA sees fit.”

“That my skin, or a portion thereof, be removed and made into leather products, such as purses, to remind the world that human skin and the skin of other animals is the same and that neither is “fabric” nor needed.”
