FEAR FACTOR!

Post by Rosalin » Wed, 02 Jul 2003 19:53:36



What a sick programme! I watched it for the first time on one of the cable
channels the other night. On one of the tasks the contestants had to go into
a container of water containing hundreds of dead mice and get ones of
specific colours out with their mouths. To me the contestants are as sick as
the producers. All I could think about was all of those hundreds of little
lives that mean't nothing. In England where I live there would have been an
outcry if a stunt like that had been used. That's entertainment at it's
sickest. Everyone should boycott that programme.

That is sick!  I agree, and I'm glad I live in England where that stunt
would not get an easy time if it was aired here.

OMG, Rosalind, how awful.

That is the most disgusting thing I have ever heard of.  Where the hell is
the SPCA when these things are done?  Why don't people realize that these
are living creatures who feel pain and suffer just so a bunch of brain-dead
RealTV trash-heads can get their kicks?  Sorry for ranting, people, but that
really upsets me.  I wonder if there is some way of contacting the producers
of that garbage and letting them know this is not acceptable?  I can't
imagine they went around collecting dead mice, so they must have 'produced'
dead mice just for the occasion.  God, I can't even imagine the horror those
poor things must have gone through...   ARRRRGGGHHHH!!!!!!

Funny you should mention THAT programme.  We had a series of it here...It
was on one night (I was on the computer..of course) when I heard the guy
saying what they had to do..."eat different icky bits of a dead pig.  I
remember levitating about 10 feet in the air before I roared at the kids to
turn it off.  Needless to say that was the first and last time that garbage
will be seen in this household.
  No offence to Americans..but they seem to be able to make cheap
entertainment out of the most basest instincts a man has...

writing campaign against that show but it was much ignored!

  Even though I said I wouldn't get anymore girls until I settled in a
different place I couldn't resist.  I went to buy a male parakeet for my
female who was missing her late Blue II.  The rats were right by the birds
and I just couldn't help myself.
  I was just telling the young boy who helped me that I should make a
decision and leave because someone always comes in and buys a rat for
feeders.  And sure enough....I stopped him from buying a rat but he did get
a mouse.  He was decent enough to do that when I asked him not to buy a rat.
Still it upset me that anything was bought.
  Anyway, my point was that I was on a site somewhere and they were starting
a letter writing campaign to various "reality" shows (like reality is
picking a rat up with your mouth) and I thought if you all were interested
I'd try very hard to find the site again.  I really despise that show and
wonder what kind of human beings these people are.  Personally I think it's
frightening that anyone could do the things they do.
  I also wondered if anyone had heard of the snake food that was being
developed that wasn't moving and I guess didn't use any sort of animal in
it's making.  It's one thing in the wild and quite another to drop a living
creature in a tank.
  Rosalind,  I guess I am actually combining your two posts together in my
one.  But I really agree with you and like you said, "enough said"!
Thanks all for letting me vent about my pet store trauma!

The SPCA was mentioned in a post.  From what I understand they can't
intervene whether it is due to the type of animal or I don't know what.  I
vaguely remember reading something about the producers using their own
discretion. And that's not going to happen as long as the ratings are good.
That's it, I definitely need to find that web site because my memory is
sooooo bad.
