This Film Is Rated ‘R’ … for ‘Reckless’
After four dozen animals were shot and killed in Ohio last week, PETA has reached out again to director Cameron Crowe, asking that he insist that 20th Century Fox producers put a disclaimer on his upcoming film We Bought a Zoo, stating that keeping wild animals as pets is dangerous for both people and animals. The movie’s trailer recklessly implies that all it takes is heart to operate a zoo—reinforcing the irresponsible idea that anyone can own and properly care for tigers, bears, lions, and other wild animals.
Don’t forget to ask the Ohio Department of Natural Resources to exercise its authority to declare emergency regulations to prohibit the keeping of wild animals, seize all such animals over which it has jurisdiction, and ensure that they are placed in reputable sanctuaries.
