Representatives at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) are protesting the content of singer Katy Perry’s latest music video Roar. The music video features the use of exotic animals, including a monkey, an elephant and a tiger, according to E! Online.

“Animals used for entertainment in film and television endure horrific cruelty and suffer from extreme confinement and violent training methods,” PETA wrote in a letter the clip’s co-directors. Katy Perry, a prominent animal lover, was quick to release a response, according to Billboard.

The singer replied with a letter from the American Humane Association, explaining how their representatives were present all three days of the shoot.

The letter reads: “American Humane Association was on set for the filming of the above referenced music video, which used an elephant, a monkey, birds and a tiger. After reviewing the reports, we believe that the Guidelines for the Safe Use of Animals in Filmed Media were followed and that no animal was harmed in the making of this music video.”

It seems that PETA is watching everyone who gets too close to wildlife!

    It’s too bad, with all the real cruelty and inhumane treatment of animals going on in the world today and even in the USA, it’s a silly song, with no ill intentions, that gets all the press and people rise up to complain about.

    Frankly, I believe the less we involve or include animals in our everyday lives and portray these magnificent animals in a positive light the more people became desensitized and or forget about or ignore their plight.

    I did not see anything in this video, other than her leopard skin outfit, that was really negative or cruel.

    This video actually portrays these magnificent animals in a warm and appealing way. That is a good thing, not a bad thing. That is what is needed. What better way to reach the younger generation than through songs and visuals these days?
