PETA is urging director Cameron Crowe to include a warning about the dangers of owning wild animals.
His new movie, We Bought A Zoo features a family, with no real training, taking care of wild animals.
PETA fears that people will think that it takes nothing more than a lot of "heart" to take care of exotic animals.
Due to the recent Ohio tragedy, where around 50 exotic animals were shot dead, PETA released a statement:
"We Bought a Zoo conveys the misleading and downright dangerous message that no special knowledge—just a lot of heart—is needed to run a zoo.
As the tragedy in Ohio gruesomely illustrates, wild animals aren't Disney characters. They have very special needs that all too often aren't met by people who buy them on a whim because they think it would be 'cool' to own a tiger."
You hear that people? Just because you want a tiger, doesn't mean you have the time, training or resources to take care of it.
And even if you do you still shouldn't get one. Wild animals belong in the wild.
