PETA CALLS FOR INVESTIGATION INTO DOC ANTLE AFTER CHRIS BROWN'S DAUGHTER PLAYS WITH ANIMALS AT HIS SAFARI: According to Complex, PETA is calling for Myrtle Beach Safari owner Bhagavan “Doc” Antle to be investigated after singer Chris Brown‘s daughter, Royalty, was pictured playing on an elephant’s head during a visit. PETA is calling the trip reckless and illegal, specifically Royalty jumping off an elephant’s head into the water. The organization sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, requesting that it open a probe into Doc’s South Carolina operation due to the fact that Royalty’s swim with the animal named Bubbles was in breach of the Animal Welfare Act. Antle responded to PETA’s allegations, telling the site the organization tried the same thing when Lil Pump visited the safari. “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.”
