Last week Ecorazzi told you that PETA was investigating the death of Stephan Miller, the 39-year-old animal trainer who was fatally attached by Rocky — the grizzly bear featured in Will Ferrell’s film, Semi-Pro. Now it looks like PETA’s going right to the source and asking Ferrell to stop using animals in all of his movies. 

In February, PETA sent a letter to Ferrell’s agents warning of both the dangers of working with wild animals and how many of these animals are cruelty treated, but the warning went ignored and now PETA is giving it a second go. PETA recently sent another letter to Ferrell and his camp stating, “We know you to be a compassionate person, and we are hoping that this deadly incident will make you have a change of heart about acting with animals in the future.”

Many celebrities are adamant about not working with animals, including Pamela Anderson who recently refused to shoot a scene with a trained Labrador.  Is Ferrell going to give up his animal wrestling ways? Only time will tell. Stay close Ecorazzi readers — we’ll keep you posted as the story unfolds.
