Cigarettes can and do contain animal parts or bodily secretions. One example: beaver sex glands are used to produce a nice musky/smoky aroma. Another show-stopper: urea, which is commonly referred to as pig urine.
Let's assume that the beavers were spayed and neutered with love and affection. I still don't want to inhale the testicles of a beaver!
Pig urine? Yuk, forget about it.
I have even seen whale vomit as a common "flavoring" used in cigarettes. Just search for 'ingredients of cigarettes' and you can find pretty detailed lists. Have you ever noticed that cigarette packs do not have the ingredients listed? Guess what? It's on purpose. The FDA can't make a company list its ingredients if they are neither food nor drugs. So this has been hidden as a trade secret for a very long time and only recently has the actual ingredients come to light.
To answer your question in brief: Yes.
