Katy Perry has incurred the wrath of animal rights activists for featuring exotic animals in the video for her new single ROAR.

The singer is seen onscreen with animals including tigers and monkeys in the promo, and in one scene, she even appears to paint the toenails of an elephant with bright pink polish.

Perry has now been criticized by officials at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), who are furious with her decision to feature the creatures onscreen.
