PETA slams 'Twilight' bosses over wolves
Animal rights activists have taken aim at Twilight bosses for bringing live wolves to Monday night's Breaking Dawn - Part 2 premiere after-party in Los Angeles.
Three wolves prowled around a cage by the entrance to the party, upsetting many party guests - who alerted People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
Angry PETA bosses tell HollyScoop.com, "Didn't it dawn on the Twilight event organizers that real wolves do not belong at a party with blaring music and flashing lights?
"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.
"We got calls, emails and photos from people at the party."
