Demand Justin Bieber Apologize for Posing With Abused Tiger

Target: Justin Bieber

Goal: Donate to a tiger sanctuary after posing with a captive tiger at a party.

Justin Bieber attended his dad’s engagement party where he petted and posed with a captive tiger who was allegedly brought in from the Bowmanville Zoo by trainer Michael Hackenberger. Hackenberger is currently facing animal cruelty charges after PETA released footage of him whipping an animal.

The fight against using animals for entertainment and props has become a mainstream issue, so Justin Bieber should have known better. The situation gets substantially worse now that it’s known that the tiger was brought in by a trainer who is currently being charged with animal abuse.

When wild animals like tigers are used for entertainment, they’ve usually been abused since a young age in order to teach the animal submission. Wild animals should not be tortured and kept captive for the entertainment of humans.

It’s not enough for Justin to be criticized for this. Demand that Justin apologize for hanging around this poor animal and that he donate to a tiger sanctuary to make up for his mistake. 


Dear Mr. Bieber,

At your father’s recent engagement party, you posed with a captive tiger who was allegedly brought in by an animal trainer who is being charged with animal abuse. Animals used for entertainment like this have usually lived miserable lives where they’ve been abused from a young age and forced into captivity and submission.

As a public figure, you can take a stand against this abuse and fight for wild animals to actually be wild. I demand that you apologize and, as part of your apology, make a donation to a tiger sanctuary.

    This snotty nosed, over paid, trouble making BRAT not only posed with the tiger, but has also had other “pets” he’s just abandoned along the was because he was “tired” of them. All we can do it HOPE that someday he grows up & will maybe right his wrongs….

  2. Katherine Evers says:

    Justin Beiber should apologize for posing with this innocent animal that was being abused. Tigers should free and in the wild where they belong, not being petted and gawked at by bratty superstars. This tiger should be taken away from the cruel animal trainer if it has not been already.
