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.

Even The Wall Street Journal
calls into question the film’s marketing following the mass slaughter in Ohio.
Experts have already appealed
to the director to stop using animals in his films.

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.
