Queen legend Brian May penned a recent letter on his Instagram page and shared a heart-wrenching photo about enslaved animals.

Here is what he said:

Who cares if a highly intelligent and sensitive non-human mammal is kept in chains, condemned to slavery, denied any access to their family, and made to perform tricks for the amusement of humans? Who cares?”

Brian also shared another photo on the same post and intruduced the founders of Non Human Rights Project Gail and Steve Wise to his followers:

“Steve and Gail Wise. They care. And so do we. Steve, founder of the @nonhuman.rights.project has dedicated his life to changing the way the Human Race treats animals. He has championed individual elephants like this, and primates too, in a coordinated campaign to assign them rights in law which would prevent them being denied their freedom, and kept in painful and degrading situations.

These are the people in the world that @anneatsaveme and I are proud to collaborate with, changing the world inch by inch for the benefit of the creatures we should be sharing this planet with, and treating with dignity. You’ll be hearing more of Steve Wise here. Follow the @nonhuman.rights.project if you care.”
