Doc Antle from the Tiger King Netflix series is getting into more trouble with PETA over a visit from rapper Lil Pump. PETA sent the United States Dept. of Agriculture a letter requesting that they launch an investigation. “On Nov. 4, Antle posted a video to social media documenting rap artist Lil Pump in direct physical contact with a juvenile tiger at Myrtle Beach Safari,” the letter reads. “Antle also posted a video of Lil Pump climbing on Bubbles the elephant’s trunk, during which he loses his balance and falls.” In the video, Lil Pump says: “Save the tigers, save the world.” Additionally, he’s seen sitting on an elephant and wearing a MAGA hat.
The letter was written by PETA’s Associate Director of Captive Animal Law enforcement, Debbie Metzler. Metzler said that the video shows Lil Pump violating a law that requires “dangerous animals such as… tigers… or elephants must be under the direct control and supervision of a knowledgeable and experienced animal handler.”
The videos of the visit to Doc Antle’s Zoo in South Carolina were posted online this week.
