PETA Wants An Investigation Into Doc Antler’s Zoo After Larsa Pippen Paid A Visit To It 

January 26, 2021 / Posted by:

Doc Antle was featured in the Tiger King docu-series, and in it, Joe Exotic, who is serving 22 years in prison putting a hit out on Carole Baskin, accused Doc of killing tigers in gas chambers to make room for further breeding. Doc has also been hit with dozens of violations from the US Department of Agriculture for mistreating animals. And now, TMZ says that PETA is coming for Doc and wants the USDA to open an investigation. It seems what tipped them off was a picture of Larsa Pippen, former Real Housewife of Miami and ex-friend of the Koven, in a pool with tigers. And PETA isn’t specifically mad that the tigers were abused by being forced to pose with Larsa Pippen, but they are mad that tigers have been forced to pose with the public, which is something the USDA warned Doc about years ago.

PETA’s letter to the US Department of Agriculture requests that the safari be investigated for alleged violations of the Animal Welfare Act.

In the letter, obtained by TMZ … Debbie Metzler, PETA’s Associate Director of Captive Animal Law Enforcement, cites Larsa’s visit there this week and her photos with adult and juvenile tigers showing direct public contact.

She claims the USDA warned Antle 15 years ago his methods of photographing the public with large adult cats was a violation of the law … and she wonders why the “USDA has apparently refused to take any meaningful action to prevent Antle from allowing these types of dangerous, direct contact stunts.”

PETA’s also worried Larsa and her children’s close contact with the tigers and an infant chimpanzee put the animals at risk of contracting COVID-19, claiming the encounters are another violation of the law.

But Doc assured TMZ that PETA was not getting the whole picture and that Larsa was filming a PSA with him about wild tiger conservation and it was totally safe:

But, Doc says PETA’s got the wrong idea about Larsa’s visit … he claims Larsa took a tour, which included goofing around with tiger cubs and primates, before shooting footage for a PSA on wild tiger conservation.

Doc tells us it was a closed set with larger adolescent tigers in a pool, with strict protocols in place that are compliant with USDA guidelines and recommendations.

And of course here are the pictures which pissed off PETA. There’s also a video on TMZ where Larsa is in the pool with Doc and the tiger and they say: “Save the tiger, save the world.” And I guess that’s the PSA? LOL! Bitch… that was nothing.

Well, this isn’t actually the worst thing that’s happened to someone who was caught with Larsa Pippen when they weren’t supposed to be. At least this can’t end in the breakup of a marriage. …Unless… is that tiger married?!
