PETA Wants New Matt Damon Film to Carry a Warning

Matt-Damon-in-We-Bought-A-Zoo

The new Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson film titled “We Bought a Zoo” has become the subject of a special request by PETA in the wake of the tragedy in Zanesville, Ohio involving more than 50 wild animals.

The film stars Damon as a father who moves his family to the countryside to help save a struggling zoo. Johansson plays a keeper at the animal park, which is home to an assortment of lions, tigers, zebras and bears, among other creatures.

PETA says it has sent a letter to Zoo director Cameron Crowe urging him to include a warning at the end of the movie about the dangers of owning wild animals.

“We Bought a Zoo conveys the misleading and downright dangerous message that no special knowledge–just a lot of heart–is needed to run a zoo,” PETA Vice President Lisa Lange said in a statement. “As the tragedy in Ohio gruesomely illustrates, wild animals aren’t Disney characters. They have very special needs that all too often aren’t met by people who buy them on a whim because they think it would be ‘cool’ to own a tiger.”PETA has asked Crowe to also insist that 20th Century Fox, the studio behind the film, include warnings on all marketing materials, including movie posters.
