Katy Perry's ROAR
Los Angeles - PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is not impressed with Katy Perry's furry friends in her ROAR music video.

In a statement sent to Gossip Cop, a representative's spoke out against the cruelty perpetrated on trained animals in the entertainment industry.

"Animals used for entertainment endure horrific cruelty and suffer from extreme confinement and violent training methods. They often become stressed and anxious when hauled around and forced into unfamiliar or frightening situations."

The organisation also pointed out that the company from which the animals were hired, The Serengeti Ranch, has had previous issues with inspectors from the Department of Agriculture.

In previous years, especially with her ex-husband Russel Brand, Katy has been commended by PETA for her vegetarian ways and PETA uses a lot of star power in their pro-vegetarian and anti-fur advertisements.
