Animals Were Harmed in the Making of ‘Zookeeper’

PETA US members converged on the Hollywood premiere of the new movie Zookeeper to remember Tweet, a giraffe who collapsed and died on set during the movie’s production.

An elephant used in the film may also have been abused. Animal Defenders International took video footage of elephants as they were beaten and shocked by trainers at Have Trunk Will Travel, the company that provided the elephant for the movie.

Moviegoers may be surprised to learn that the presence of American Humane Association (AHA) representatives on a movie set is no guarantee that animals were not exploited, hurt, or even killed during production. AHA representatives only monitor what occurs during filming, not what happens during off-set training sessions, where abuse is most likely to occur.

Please don’t reward the producers of Zookeeper – which, incidentally, is receiving scathing reviews – for exploiting animals. Don’t buy a ticket.

    LOS ANIMALES DEBEN VIVIR EN SU MEDIO NATURAL . HACERLES TRABAJAR ES CRUEL E INMORAL

  2. OMG a giraffe, how dare they, i love those animals they are my favourite of all times, well i love all animals but to do that to anything repulses me to the core, i wish human beings would be kinder to living things and stop being so ignorant to animals and also their own kind as well !!
