He also, as noted above, talks extensively about how he enjoys hitting the tiger, and jokes that, if a montage of "the times I struck this animal" were released, PETA would "burn this place to the ground."
Of course, a tiger also wouldn't be afraid of a whip unless he had been extensively beaten in the past.
Peet said that the abusive training methods shown in the video are anything but rare.
"They physical abuse of tigers and other wild animals who are used for films and shows is standard practice," she said. "Animals who are forced to perform are undoubtedly subjected to abusive training methods to force them, out of fear, to perform."
