Norfolk, Va. – Following the newest episode of Joel McHale’s Animal Management, which featured a sloth and a capuchin monkey, PETA despatched a letter at present to FOX President of Scripted Programming Michael Thorn urging the community to cease exploiting dwell animals and as a substitute use the present’s platform for good by serving to to curb the animal overpopulation disaster.

Under, please discover a assertion from PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange:

The one factor “humorous” about Animal Management is that producers don’t perceive the problems plaguing actual animal management officers and overburdened shelters attempting to fight the ever-growing homeless-animal disaster. Not like Joel McHale, monkeys and sloths aren’t determined to be on TV. They merely need to be left alone in nature, as a substitute of being torn away from their moms, confined, abusively educated, and compelled in entrance of cameras. PETA urges the general public to skip this outdated spectacle of exploitation and encourages FOX to assist—not hinder—the work that animal management businesses do by selling spaying/neutering and the adoption of animals at native shelters.

A screenshot taken from Animal Management actor Michael Rowland’s Instagram web page. Research have proven that depictions of monkeys alongside people similar to this could improve the demand to have them as “pets”—a merciless commerce that the TV present even props up on this plotline.

Sloths are nocturnal and intensely shy animals who usually shun contact with people, and research have proven that depictions within the media of primates alongside people can improve the demand to amass these animals as “pets,” which might gas unscrupulous primate sellers. Moreover, PETA and law-enforcement investigations have documented that animals used for movie and TV, together with monkeys who have been stored in waste-strewn enclosures, are sometimes whipped, disadvantaged of meals throughout coaching, and housed in deplorable circumstances.

PETA factors out that animal shelters are overflowing, and a few of them with misguided insurance policies are warehousing canine for months and even years and abandoning cats to die in horrible methods on the streets.
