Justin Bieber Instagram

Prada’s newest shareholder now has a bone to pick with Justin Bieber. The singer posted a photo of himself over the weekend — sporting a new, shorter ‘do — in which he appears to be petting a tiger tethered by a neck collar. The animal was allegedly brought in for a party hosted by Bieber’s father in Toronto.

“Justin and other guests are lucky that they weren’t attacked by the wild animals,” reads a statement released on People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ Web site. “We’re calling on Justin and his family never to use animals as selfie props or party entertainment again.”

Bieber hasn’t publicly responded, but the photo has garnered more than 42,000 comments and more than two million likes.

PETA recently invested in Prada Group in an effort to protest the company’s use of exotic skins, and has led an effort for fashion companies to drop angora products.
