Los Angeles: Pop star Katy Perry`s music video `Roar` has been slammed by PETA for featuring and supposedly exploiting exotic animals.

Perry`s video is an animal-filled frolic through the jungle in which the 28-year-old singer befriends a monkey, showers with the assistance of an elephant and brushes a crocodile`s teeth, reported Radar online.

"Animals used for entertainment endure horrific cruelty and suffer from extreme confinement and violent training methods. They often become stressed and anxious when hauled around and forced into unfamiliar or frightening situations," said Merrilee Burke, PETA spokeswoman.
