Mom-to-be Jenna Dewan Tatum joined a PETA petition against animal cruelty done by Californian animal dealer Global Captive Breeders
PETA discovered that the animals in the breeders' warehouse included 18000 rats, mice and reptiles, E! News reported. This lead to one of the largest animal rescue efforts in California history.
The American actress wrote a letter to Riverside Country District Attorney Paul Zellerbach, demanding for animal justice.
"I was discouraged to learn that your office has yet to take any action against the owner of GCB or its employees, despite having been presented in December 2012 with compelling evidence—including expert veterinary reports, video footage, and photos—that a huge number of animals at GCB had died or were dying and enduring unimaginable suffering," Dewan-Tatum wrote.
She then exposes that she is heartbroken to see photographs of ailing mother rats with open wounds, who stands guard to protect their dead or dying babies in filthy plastic tubs.
"They were confined to without access to adequate food, water, or even moderately fresh air to breathe," Channing Tatum's wife continues.
She demands for justice, "I implore you, too, to take action and send the strong and compassionate message that cruelty to animals is taken seriously and will not be tolerated in Riverside County. Justice must be served for the unspeakable suffering endured by countless animals at GCB."
This is not the first time Jenna Dewan-Tatum joins PETA to go against animal cruelty.
According to the website, she previously endorsed PETA's campaign to discourage the usage of animal skins/furs for fashion.
