New York, May 4, 2016: Justin Bieber posing with a chained tiger has animal rights organization PETA fuming.
Father of Justin Bieber had on April 30, 2016 hosted a party in Toronto, Canada.
During this party many animals were apparently brought in from the Bowmanville Zoo, says PETA, to amuse the guests.
However, this act angered PETA and in a statement it said that:
“What Justin and other party guests probably don’t know is that Michael Hackenberger, the owner of that zoo, was recently charged with five counts of cruelty to animals because of PETA’s undercover footage, which shows him viciously whipping a young tiger during a “training” session and then bragging about it. Hackenberger has supplied tigers for films such as Life of Pi and The Interview.”

Not stopping at this, PETA also said that:
“Exotic animals used for entertainment are usually torn away from their mothers at a young age, beaten into submission by trainers, and forced to live in cramped enclosures. They may even be fed sedatives so that they’re docile during events and parties like the one Justin attended. Tigers used in this way are denied everything that they need to be happy, and we can only imagine that the tiger Justin posed with has experienced a life of misery. Justin and other guests are lucky that they weren’t attacked by the wild animals. In similar situations, animals have been known to lash out because of the stress of their miserable lives.”
Another video shared by PETA with regards to Justin Bieber posing with tiger, to prove their point:
The animals rights organization is now calling on Justin Bieber and his family with the request to never to use animals as selfie props or party entertainment again.
