USDA Investigating Doc Antle's Myrtle Beach Safari over Chris Brown's Daughter Visits?

According to TMZ and the Instagrams of Chris Brown, his daughter Royalty, and the page for the Myrtle Beach Safari, this past week the daughter of the rapper was documented swimming with tigers and diving into the water from an elephant's head.

After seeing this, PETA sent a letter to the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA), demanding an investigation of the 'Myrtle Beach Safari' owner, Doc Antle, stating he's violating the Animal Welfare Act by allowing the child to swim with their elephant, Bubbles. The animal rights organization claimed in the letter that their is a regulation requiring them to keep certain animals "a safe and reasonable distance from people with proper Barries to ensure the safety of the animals and the visitors." and the elephant should be included in this regulation.

If the name Doc Antle seems familiar to you, you may have seen the hit Netflix docuseries, "Tiger King" in the spring of 2020. Antle was highlighted in the series for accusations of animal endangerment, inbreeding and illegal trafficking of big cats, and polyamory,

Doc Antle spoke with a representative at TMZ, telling them that a similar inquiry took place when the rapper Lil Pump also visited. "Not a thing came of that elephant complaint after USDA investigated it. Just a huge waste of time and resources for the federal veterinarians who have to check out these erroneous allegations. 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; as we have been involved in film work of this nature for decades, including more than 500 films, documentaries, television productions and advertisements."

The USDA has stated that they received the letter from PETA and will be looking into the allegations soon.
