What is Pixoto's stand on the use of possible cruelty to animals in order to stage photographs

The staging of animals to create images has been around for a long time. If done humanly and in a natural pose/environment i have nothing against this type of photography.

When looking at some of the images (mainly frogs/lizards) there seems to be a number of images that have been staged , the animals have been put into unnatural comical positions for human consumption, i assume this is done by some form of restraints (string/thin wire) which is later removed in photoshop
