PETA in Up'ROAR' Over Katy Perry's New Video

Katy Perry‘s music video for her latest single, “Roar,” has the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) in an uproar over her use of animals in the video.

The “Roar” video takes place in a jungle scene with Katy Perry living among and interacting with jungle animals such as tigers, a monkey, parrots, and an elephant. PETA has always been opposed to animals in the entertainment industry, and Perry’s video is no exception.

“Animals used for entertainment endure horrific cruelty and suffer from extreme confinement and violent training methods,” said PETA representative, Merrilee Burke, to the Daily Star. “They often become stressed and anxious when hauled around and forced into unfamiliar or frightening situations.”

Burke also said that PETA believe the animals in the video were supplied by The Serengeti Ranch, who has been inspected by the US Department of Agriculture 22 times since 2001.

We wonder what ex-hubby and animal rights supporter Russell Brand thinks of Perry’s inclusion of captive animals…
