Ape Shoots Himself on Camera?!

Not everyone who ends up in Hollywood wants to be an actor. Not sure why you should boycott movies, TV shows, and companies that use animals? This new video should clear it up.

Unlike humans, no ape ever dreams of being a celeb. To them, acting is stressful, confusing, and sometimes torturous. Chimpanzees and orangutans destined for use in television, film, and advertisements are torn away from their mothers as infants and subjected to harsh beatings in order to make them perform unnatural behaviors on cue. At the end of their “careers,” apes are usually dumped at shoddy roadside zoos and other substandard facilities, where they may spend the rest of their long lives in small, filthy cages—often without proper companionship.

    Why use real animals when you can use computers?! The only time I want to see an animal on film is when it is happy and in the wild.

    Screamingly amazing video! No animals should ever be used for entertainment, especially now that we can do all the film stuff with computers and animal circuses can be replaced with human circuses and zoos…well, zoos should just be abolished. Live and let live…respect animals’ rights to enjoy life in their native lands, protected from exploiting humans!
