A decapitated giraffe. A smothered rooster. Dead dogs.

These are just a few of the incidents milked for laughs by Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Ken Jeong and Zach Galifianakis in the upcoming Hangover 3, and a rep for PETA tells that it's simply unacceptable.

"We regret that unlike most Hollywood directors, Hangover 3 director Todd Philips remains insensitive to what animals are put through to make a film, and that despite evidence given to him about the abuse and stress inherent in training wild animals such as giraffes, monkeys and tigers, he is still including them in his movies," a rep for PETA told

Although the scene featured in the trailer of a giraffe being decapitated alongside Zach was computer-generated, PETA claims that they have knowledge a giraffe was used in a studio.

"Phillips filmed a real giraffe in the studio to create the character," the rep says, "an entirely unnecessary stressor for the giraffe, given what is now possible with CGI."

"Giraffes are extremely delicate creatures who are easily upset and become nervous in surroundings that are unfamiliar and therefore frightening to them," the rep explained.


The film opens this Friday.
