Royalty Brown’s Safari Trip Causes Beef Between PETA And Doc Antle

That was unexpected.

Royalty Brown was having the time of her life over the weekend when she visited American animal trainer Bhagavan Antle’s Myrtle Beach Safari. However, her fun visit has led to some objections against Doc Antle by animal rights organization PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).

Royalty Brown recently visited Doc Antle’s Myrtle Beach Safari with her mom Nia Guzman. Royalty, 7, was having a lot of fun as she played with some tiger cubs, as well as riding on top of an elephant. Despite having a great time in a safe manner, PETA thinks that Doc Antle is responsible for letting Royalty carelessly take a joy ride on an elephant.

PETA gave their thoughts about the recklessness of the trip, pointing to a specific moment when Royalty Brown jumps off an elephant’s head into the water.

The animal rights organization sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, where it asked for a probe into Doc Antle’s zoo, saying that Royalty’s cute swim with the elephant called Bubbles, is in breach of the Animal Welfare Act. Not only that, PETA even issued a statement last Friday asking Nia Guzman and Royalty Brown to set a better example and delete the photos and videos of their trip to the Myrtle Beach Safari.

“Baby chimpanzees, hyenas, and tigers are stolen from their mothers for photo ops like Royalty’s at shady facilities such as ‘Doc’ Antle’s Myrtle Beach Safari, and it’s common in this industry to cage, sell off, or kill animals once they’re no longer profitable babies. PETA has asked Royalty’s mom to put herself in these mothers’ shoes and set a kind example for families everywhere by deleting these posts, committing to never visiting another roadside zoo, and teaming up with us to condemn dismal parks that tear animal families apart.”

As of now, Royalty Brown is yet to delete the photos and videos of her amazing trip to the Myrtle Beach Safari.

Doc Antle responded to the allegations against him by PETA stating that this was not the first time that PETA has sent a letter to him concerning the situation. PETA had sent a similar letter back when rapper Lil Pump visited the zoo.

“Not a thing came of that elephant complaint after USDA investigated it. Just a huge waste of time and resources for the federal veterinarians who have to check out these erroneous allegations. We are in no ways in violation of the animal welfare act. We have continuously perfect inspections. We are well aware of the USDA protocols to conduct this type of filming; as we have been involved in film work of this nature for decades, including more than 500 films, documentaries, television productions and advertisements,” the doc says.

“Animal Rights activists that are unfamiliar with USDA film protocols routinely report these regulated activities to federal and state regulators as if there has been a violation. Rest assured that we are in full compliance with all federal and state regulations. USDA is our partner in animal welfare and we share a passion and commitment to providing the highest possible care for our animal ambassadors at the preserve.”
