Justin Bieber’s Dad Invited a Leashed Tiger to a Party, PETA Is Not Having It

There are two laws of nature. We can expect two things to happen every single day. The first one, the sun will come up. Nothing’s going to stop that. The second, Justin Bieber is going to say/do/be something earth-shatteringly douchey and not understand why everyone is upset.

On today’s episode of S**t Justin Bieber Did, we find out that Justin Bieber’s father, Jeremy Bieber, threw an engagement party for he and his soon-to-be bride, Chelsea Rebelo. They invited a leashed tiger from the Bowmanville Zoo so everyone at the party could have the best instagram photos. PETA got wind of it and like they do all things, they got angry. PETA isn’t the most reputable resource for animal rights knowledge (shocking, I know) but here’s their open letter to the patrons of the Bieber party:

What Justin and other party guests probably don’t know is that Michael Hackenberger, the owner of that zoo, was recently charged with five counts of cruelty to animals because of PETA’s undercover footage, which shows him viciously whipping a young tiger during a “training” session and then bragging about it. Hackenberger has supplied tigers for films such as Life of Pi and The Interview.

Exotic animals used for entertainment are usually torn away from their mothers at a young age, beaten into submission by trainers, and forced to live in cramped enclosures. They may even be fed sedatives so that they’re docile during events and parties like the one Justin attended. Tigers used in this way are denied everything that they need to be happy, and we can only imagine that the tiger Justin posed with has experienced a life of misery. Justin and other guests are lucky that they weren’t attacked by the wild animals. In similar situations, animals have been known to lash out because of the stress of their miserable lives.

Everyone is lucky that they didn’t get mauled by that dangerous beast.
