PETA angry over wolves in cages at 'Twilight' after-party

A group even angrier than Team Jacob fans at an Edward rally? PETA. E! reports that caged wolves were at the after-party for Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 on Monday night.

In a statement to EW, PETA said: “A PETA staffer was in attendance at the Twilight premiere and was told that the exhibitor was “Hollywood Animals,” a notorious exhibitor that has been cited for numerous violations of the Animal Welfare Act for repeatedly failing to provide the animals it exploits with basic veterinary care, proper shelter, food, and water. PETA has written to Summit Entertainment and the premiere party organizers urging them to not use live animals as part of their future Twilight promotional events….”
