Justin Bieber Pets Tiger At Dad's Engagement Party And World Goes Crazy
Another day, another scandal...
Rarely a day goes by when Justin Bieber isn't doing something to make the world go 'wtf'? And now he's angered animal right activist group PETA after posting a photo to Instagram of him petting a tiger at his dad's engagement party in Toronto, Canada.
PETA claims that the tiger belongs to an owner who had been charged with animal cruelty and that the Biebs is promoting this type of cruelty by posing with the big cat. After the pic was posted, Twitter was sent into chaos as thousands of people complained about the image.
A spokesperson said: "Justin Bieber is lucky not to have had his throat torn out by this stressed captive tiger. Tigers used for photo ops are torn away from their mothers shortly after birth, and the Bowmanville Zoo, in particular, was caught whipping one tiger more than 17 times, even after the cat was lying on his back in a position of submission and fear."
"This is why PETA urges everyone to stay far away from cruel and dangerous big-cat photo ops and also why we're asking Justin to vow that this will be his last time promoting these types of abusive outfits."
Well Justin, we all remember what happened to poor Mally the monkey. Maybe you're just not an exotic animal kinda guy?
