On Thursday, it was revealed that the animal rights organization submitted an official complaint to the Toronto Animal Services’ Enforcement/Mobile Response unit in regards to a potentially unlawful exhibition of several exotic animals at a party thrown for the Sorry singer’s father. Yikes!
Apparently, a tiger, lion or tiger cub, lemur, and camel were all present at the controversial bash. Eek!
According to the group’s complaint, the city’s law prohibits the possession of these kinds of animals — which means Mr. Bieber could be slapped with a fine up to $5,000. Well, that’s not SO bad!
Brittany Peet, the organization’s Deputy Director of Captive Animal Law Enforcement, shared:
“With a powerful adult tiger restrained only by a leash and a lion or tiger cub torn away from his or her mother’s side, this dangerous and inhumane party seems to have also been against the law. PETA is calling for an investigation into who was paid to parade wild animals at this event, and we urge kind people everywhere not to participate in disgusting exotic-animal photo ops like this one.”
Not to mention, the adult tiger is said to have been supplied by the Bowmanville Zoo. In case you forgot, this particular zoo received backlash after the owner/former director Michael Hackenberger was caught viciously whipping one of the tigers. That doesn’t sound good for J.B.’s poppa!
First the monkey drama, and now THIS… we think the Bieber family should just stay away from exotic animals all together. Just sayin’!
