I dunno if any of you folks watch the TV show fear factor, but just
the other day they had for an event bobbing for plums in an acrylic
tank filled with snakes (a few dozen garters of various sizes and one
albino burmese that was a few feet) ...i was laughing my ass off at
the contestant's reactions on one hand and on the other lamenting the
treatment of the snakes (and thinking why dont i ever get on shows
that have snakes like that?)

I watched that too; it was apples they were bobbing for and I was
sickened by how they treated those snakes.

Lots of them were getting squished by the contestant's heads, and
considering how some of them were so small, I wouldn't be surprised if
more than a few snakes came out of there with their ribs broken.

It was sad.

The way they treat the animals they use in that show is disgusting.  I
wouldn't be surprised to learn that some animals have died as a result of
how they were handled.  *shakes head*  It's absolutely disgusting.

I agree, I agree... even with the insects. There's no reason for them to
be eating those bugs at all, why not kill them beforehand? It makes no
sense.
