Kellan Lutz Defends 'Twilight' Against PETA Claims: 'Wolves Were In A Loving Environment'

17 November 2012

Actor and animal rights activist Kellan Lutz, who stars in the 'Twilight' movies, has spoken out about the organisation's recent claims against the franchise, saying that although there WERE real wolves used at the movie premiere, but they were all cared for and loved.

As the final 'Twilight' movie has hit our screens, festivities for the Los Angeles premiere included caged wolves, as a reference to the werewolves in the movie. However, PETA were quick to take the issue with the treatment of the animals, releasing a statement at the film's premiere on Monday (November 12).

"Didn't it dawn on the 'Twilight' event organizers that real wolves do not belong at a party with blaring music and flashing lights?" a PETA spokeswoman said in an interview with TheWrap.

However, Kellan Lutz has since told Huffington Post: "I would love to know where the wolves came from"

"If those are someone's personal pets and they're trained that way, then to each their own to do what they want. It's not like they took them out of the wild."

Lutz has appeared in ad campaigns for PETA and helped raise money for the organization.

"Not to step on PETA's shoes or anything, but they were in a loving environment, they were treated very well -- I don't think we can point fingers at anyone for having a collar on too tight or anything like that," Lutz continued.

Adding, "Those wolves were so sweet and I think it was a good addition."

Do you think Kellan has a point? Or do you agree with PETA?
