Jenna Dewan-Tatum has joined PETA’s fight against the cruel animal breeder Global Captive Breeders (GCB) in Lake Elsinore, Calif.
The “American Horror Story” actress has sent a letter, along with more than 30,000 other concerned citizens, to the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office pleading that they please pursue criminal charges against GCB.
According to PETA and its undercover investigation, GCB has inflicted needless cruelty and neglect against more than 18,000 animals. The facility reportedly “reeked of death, decay, and ammonia from accumulated urine and feces.” A variety of reptiles and rats were mistreated horrifically.
“As an expectant mother, I was particularly heartbroken to see photos of ailing mother rats with open wounds on their bodies who stood guard protectively over their dead or dying babies in the filthy plastic tubs that they were confined to without access to adequate food, water, or even moderately fresh air to breathe… Justice must be served for the unspeakable suffering endured by countless animals at GCB,” Dewan-Tatum writes.
Thanks to PETA’s undercover photos and videos, law-enforcement officials seized the animals, but still no criminal actions have been taken.
For years now, the “Step Up” actress has supported PETA and has been very outspoken against animal cruelty. She even posed for PETA showcasing that “Wearing Exotic Skin Kills.” Dewan-Tatum is extremely against wearing any type of animal skin, so it’s no surprise that she’s uniting this time around with PETA.
