Michael Jackson has big plans for his set of 50 concerts in London this summer, and those plans reportedly include a menagerie of exotic animals.

“He hopes to make it the most spectacular gig ever,” a source tells the Daily Mirror. “For the jungle section, he wants to ride out on an African elephant with panthers led on gold chains. Parrots and other birds will fly behind him. If it goes to plan it will look incredible.”

Jackson is reportedly “desperate to work around” Britain’s animal welfare laws that would preclude using some of the non-domestic creatures.
