PETA has seen Katy Perry's Roar and they did NOT like what they saw!

Earlier this month, the seksi singer released the official music video for her hit single, and it featured tons of animals from tigers to tarantulas to elephants as she makes her transformation into Jane Goodall!

However, PETA spokeswoman Merrilee Burke criticized the use of animal actors in the music video and said they are often forced to live in terrible conditions:

"Animals used for entertainment endure horrific cruelty and suffer from extreme confinement and violent training methods. They often become stressed and anxious when hauled around and forced into unfamiliar or frightening situations. The Serengeti Ranch, the animal exhibitor that we believe supplied the animals for the Roar video, has been inspected by the US Department of Agriculture 22 times since 2001."

If Katy's animals were kept as they claim, this is definitely an argument we can see both sides of.

Under no circumstances do we think it's OK to keep animals in poor living conditions that might cause them unnecessary stress.

However, we doubt Katy would knowingly agree to such conditions.

    Stupid video to start with, the fact she terrorized animals to make it, makes me hate it and her more

    Is there anything at all that PETA doesn't get upset about? If we listened to them everytime they start whining, we'd all be vegans.
    They're just bitching for no reason. Do they have any proof that those animals weren't treated correctly? This is 2013. The standards of the entertainment inductry are quite high when it comes to animal well-being.

    Really? You really, truly believe that? Animals used in productions spend the vast majority of their lives crammed in cages. There is no law that says they must be let out. They are beaten into submission. They have no quality of life. This is all legal. And somehow, you think that's "high standards." Appalling.

    PETA is an organization that has killed on average 5 cats and dogs per day since 1998 and in 2012 killed 86 animals for every 1 they placed in adoption.

    I use to have SOME respect for PETA until I actually met a girl who was an adherent of their doctrines. She said, in effect, "i like animals better than people. I hate people" and that confirmed TO ME what I had kinda suspected about the psychology of people who support that group. They arent people who love animals. They are people who hate people (in my opinion). They will walk over the heads of 100 modern congolese african slaves in africa to get to one dolphin on a japanese harpoon because modern african slaves are….. lower than dolphins.

    I love animals but I love humans more and humans want to see movies with animals in them. Couldnt give a F about their cages. They just better be able to act.

    I've been to the ranch that supplied the monkey, tigers, and tarantulas seen in the video. The trainer talks them for unleashed walks in the hills. They live a really nice life. PETA are talking out of their asses as per usual and maligning a group of animal lovers for no reason.
