Parents upset after tiger brought to Prom

Christopher Columbus High School an all-boys Roman Catholc institution held the annual senior dance at the Double Tree Hilton Miami Airport Convention Center on Friday

Students and teachers have condemned a Miami high school's decision to feature a caged tiger in its jungle-themed prom.

"Wild animals are not amusement props, they are sentient creatures with complex physical, mental and environmental needs who deserve to be treated with dignity and respect", Higgins said, adding: "None of these can be met by a silly prom stunt, but I'm heartened that numerous students seem to have realised that this tiger didn't deserve the stress of providing their amusement". "They don't like the fire, the cages, the music, the teenagers with the cameras, they didn't ask for that, they don't have voices", she told CBS4's Joan Murray.

Saturday night, the school's marketing director said the tiger was one of several animals brought in by animal professionals who assured her they're well cared for and are used to these types of performances.

"Upon reflection, we regret the decision to have live animals at our prom".

Cate Blanchett led a Cannes red carpet women's march
At the end of the signing ceremony, the audience sang "Happy Birthday" to Cate Blanchett , who was in attendance. Cannes became the first film festival to sign the pledge but it is expected to be followed by others.

Magill said he was shocked that the school chose to bring a caged tiger to its prom and "didn't know what they were thinking".

In addition to a lemurs, two macaws, and an African fennec fox, there was a caged live tiger brought in and placed in the middle of the dance floor.

Magill explained, "He was surrounded by people, cell phones, lights, jugglers juggling fire". Exploiting animals for entertainment at parties - that time has passed.

"The body language of the tiger showed he is not happy with the situation", the sister, a 19-year-old college student, said. "We know better; we've been educated", he told the Herald.

Drake's massive tour with Migos hits Boston in September
Drake & Migos famously previously teamed up in Walk It Talk It , which has more than 130million views on YouTube. The tour will end in Atlanta, Georgia, with two shows on November 16 and 17 at the Philips Arena.

"The animals were provided by facilities that are licensed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission", the statement read. "It's going back and forth, back and forth; its tail is slashing back and forth; its ears are going into helicopter mode - all signs of distress". Thus men owe them kindness.

The Catechism goes on to state very clearly, "It is contrary to human dignity to cause animals to suffer or die needlessly".

Pope Francis has underscored in his writings that humans do not have absolute dominion over animals, which means animals must be treated with kindness, given freedom, and left in their natural habitat as much as possible.

As Magill pointed out, the tiger displayed obvious signs of distress.
