If The Walking Dead can use animatronics and computer-generated imagery (CGI) to stun audiences with the image of a tiger and not use a real animal, so can Zoo. From CGI ants and cockroaches to a beautifully conceived CGI panther, CBS has proved that it can produce the show without using live animals. With rampant animal abuse in the industry, the network is obligated to do its part to help end it, and if it agrees to use only CGI next season, PETA staff, members, and supporters will be the first to tune in.
