Whilst in Paris, Reese and her Water For Elephants co-stars and crew did a radio interview for Cherie FM, and you can listen to it below:

I won’t be going to see your new movie and in fact I’ll boycott it. As an animal lover, I find using animals or any gentle beasts like elephants to entertain “stupid humans” to be abusive.

Recent article posted about “Water for Elephants”.

“An animal rights group claims that a video it has posted online shows the elephant that appears in the Robert Pattinson film Water for Elephants being beaten and given electric shocks.

Animal Defenders International (ADI) says the footage shows animals including the 45-year-old Asian elephant Tai, who plays circus animal Rosie in the film, being shocked with handheld stun guns and beaten around the body and legs with bull hooks while in the care of the company Have Trunk Will Travel.
The group claims Tai is the elephant that appears to cry out while performing a headstand in the video”

Did you think of how the elephants are trained to perform their “stupid human tricks”? Did you consider what methods are used to get them to perform? Do you know what a bullhook looks like and how it’s used? Their skin isn’t “insensitive” when it’s hooked and it does hurt. That’s why they scream-it’s in pain.

Since when would it be natural for an animal to do something ridiculous like stand on it’s head?Do you think allowing this kind of disrespect treatment is a good lesson to teach your children about how to treat animals?

There’s a book called “When Elephants Weep” and I suggest you read it. These are not massive dumb creatures but very sentient beings and I’m disappointed you would star in a movie that would support this kind of treatment to animals. Elephants remain in groups for their entire lives and yet here they are tethered and seperated. Completely unnatural.

Please consider this the next time you are offered a script in a movie that features animals.
