CGI Lions for Food Lion

New technologies could mean the end of cruelty towards animals for entertainment´s and advertisement´s sake. In the Movie “Dawn of the Planet of Apes” you can see how wonderfully movies can be produced without the torture aspect included.

“Despite receiving information from PETA about how captive lions suffer when used as “actors” for commercials, grocery chain Food Lion continues to use lions in its advertisements. Lions and other wild animals used for entertainment are typically confined to small cages and deprived of everything that is natural and important to them. Many are torn away from their mothers shortly after birth and subjected to abusive training methods, such as electric shocks and food deprivation. Many people assume that the American Humane Association prevents the abuse of animals used for commercials, but the organization doesn’t monitor preproduction training, living conditions for animals, or the disposal of animals when they’re no longer useful to trainers. Please Urge Food Lion to ban the use of lions and any other wild animals in future ad campaigns. Please forward this message to friends, family members, and coworkers.”
