We don't blame the "Twilight" party planners for wanting to get wild, considering that Monday marked the franchise's last film premiere in Los Angeles, but they lost us by bringing in a few four-legged attendees.
Apparently, the franchise's Monday night after-party at L.A. Live had an ambiance that included three wolves, which hung out in a cage near the entrance to entrance guests upon their arrival.
Animal rights organization PETA, which we're guessing wasn't invited to the shindig, isn't pleased.
“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, which stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, said in a statement.
"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," the statement continued. "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.”
robin also went with taylor a few years ago. hee hee
PETA has lost any credibility it may have had at one time...especially
after it was revealed they kill animals that are in their care.
So much for "ethics".
Eeff PETA! They can go eat a PETA! I got a mink wrap that was my mom.......what cha gonna do about it? (I thought so)
When I think of PETA, I think of the boneheads who went mental during the filming of The Perfect Storm for the barbaric fashion in which the crew treated those poor RUBBER fish. LOL
But this time they are absolutely right. I wouldn't stress my dogs out like that–let alone undomesticated canids that belong in the wild.
PETA is a dumb organization. But I have to agree with them on this one. Subjecting live wolves to that event was stupid, cruel, and just plain wrong. Shame on whoever made that call.
i have a pair of donna karon size 18w jeans–i'm back to a size 14 now and trying to get to a size 12. you know what that goes. i also have a pair of calvin klein underwear size x large brand new in the packs.
let me know.
took da bait..she so stoopid
It seems amazing that so many people like this Twilight crap - well maybe not so amazing when you relaize most of them are female
how are you married to such a fat pig for so long.
Jack Clauss was my favorite of the Claus Gang.
I think they got it backwards. The wolves should be free, Kristen Steward, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner should be the ones in cages.
I agree with PETA, there is a place for all of the animals in the world..............Right beside the mashed potatoes and gravy on the plate..... :)
I'm sure the wolf feels exactly the same way about people.
oops leaving again bye.
is my favorite-
"PETA, are you peeing in that skull?"
"No Lois, Im going all the way to the bathroom and doing it there....jeez."
I hate people. I love animals but hate, hate people.
Couldn't find any vampires instead?
I don't like PETA, nor other fundamentalists. As an avid meat eater who supports hunting, I have to admit they're right on thus one. What a stupid and arrogant thing to do.
Hehe...They said PETA
F-ING Hollywood morons..not a single brain cell firing out there.
I'm not a fan of peta in general.
However, having live wolves at a party is just stupid. Mean, ignorant, selfish, and stupid.
My god you people with that twilight crap peta is right.
I agree with Steve. How are you a true animal lover if you advocate putting a wild animal in a cage for some lousy party. A true animal lover knows that they need space to live, not just food and water, shove it.
How do these PETA people know what the wolves like. Maybe they like the attention, the music and even the party atmosphere. Many animals, even in state parks, like the food that the evil humans give them.
Oh, yeah, justiz guitar - I am sure you could see the overall excitement and eagerness to get out of the cage and enjoy the party. Seriously? The fact that you had to ask the question is evidence that you know nothing about wolves.
Peta are nothing but terrorists People for Eating Tasty Animals
I have to agree with PETA on this one. Wolves belong in the wild, not in a cage at some loud Hollywood party in the middle of downtown LA. This is just wrong!
OMG PETA needs to get a life the animals were fine no abuse and they were being feed properly PETA makes true animals lovers like me sick.
Regardless of how annoying PETA is, anybody who has a basic understanding of animals knows the wolves shouldn't be in that situation.
Sorry but based upon your comment you are certainly no animal lover
Sorry Lee, you are not an animal lover, based on your ignorant comment.
sorry gotta leave see you wednesday
People who claim to be animal lovers and make comments like that make me sick. Before you make any additional comments to that effect, I strongly suggest you do a little research.
Pretty mean thing to do. The wolves were probably scared the entire time. Good for PETA to complain-right thing to do.
see you next week
Stupid move by the twilight folks, but Peta will never get any serious attention from a lot of people as long as they keep painting nude women like tigers & sticking them in cages to protest circuses & zoos. Animal exploitation, No Way!! Female exploitation, eh, still cool.
All fine and good, but, has anybody been following the stuff going on along Euphrates River and the book of revelations in Bible. People get ready!
Really?! Listen Bible freak, this is an article about PETA. Go join the other End of the World freaks in your cellar and lock yourselves in until God knocks and saves you. Weirdo.
Wolves are becoming endangered due to ignorance. They didnt belong there. PETA is right. Dumb people may try to rationalize exploitation of animals but it was called for what it is. HOW DO WE EXPECT OTHER COUNTRIES TO BE CIVIL WHEN WE ARENT? just a thought
Wolve are becoming endangered? We have plenty of them here. Take em! They're causing too many problems. Those teenybopper vamps should have used stuffed wolves and taken a few of those damn things outta the woods! I wonder if PETA thinks that most of our food comes from magic happy land.
They shouldn't have had wolves in that situation. Trained or not, all that light, sound and activity would overwhelm the senses of almost any animal. Bad call from whoever organized that. But still, f#<k PETA.
The poor animals, must have been scared with all the stupid loud music. I wish they would have gone out of the cages like king kong did and take a bite out of the crowd as a lesson. Stupid people.
and be a good girl like you always (s)–
I think they should put all of the PETA people in cages and give them plenty of veterinary car, food and water.
PETA= People Eating Tasty Animals...
Yeah, because old lame jokes NEVER get tired...
PETA is the most humorless group of people on earth.
They are entirely devoid of self-awareness.
WE SWIPD BACK GOT IT WE GOT IT!!!
