PETA is not happy with executives behind The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, as they are displeased with the use of caged wolves at an after party for the film.
At a party at L.A. Live on Monday, three cages wolves were on hand to celebrate the end of the vampire/werewolf franchise.
A spokesperson for the organization told The Wrap “Didn't it dawn on the Twilight event organizers that real wolves do not belong at a party with blaring music and flashing lights?”
PETA also made it known they weren’t happy with their using Hollywood Animals to provide the animals.
"The wolves were provided by Hollywood Animals, a notorious exhibitor that has been cited for numerous violations of the Animal Welfare Act for repeatedly failing to provide the animals it exploits with basic veterinary care, proper shelter, food, and water," they continued to say. "We hope the rest of the promotional events surrounding Breaking Dawn celebrates the brilliant work of the cast and crew and shows enough respect for wildlife to leave animals out of it."
The Huffington Post reports that ironically, one of the film’s stars, Christian Serratos, was in a PETA ad not too long ago, saying "These animals are ripped away at very young ages and trained to do really ridiculous stunts and tricks that most people don't even actually enjoy. They're beaten and essentially tortured for something that a 2-year-old won't even understand."
