Default What ?????

I don't know whether you guys have this in the US but there is a purile third rate program here where they dump a dozen or so failing career has been "celebs" in the Australian jungle. Now for me they should just leave them there and not bother going back. Anyway viewers, blonds I think, phone in and vote them to do "trials" or "tasks" and each few days one of the idiots is voted out, the final one left in the jungle winning say £100,000. Anyway all this pre-amble it because two of the contestants, one a chef killed and ate a rat, this has happened on other similar programs and since they expect them to find the bulk of their own food totally understandable. Big difference this time, the two guys concerned have been charged with cruelty to a rat - EH ?? I kid you not cruelty to a bloody rat !! Some dumb arsed Australian animal rights "officer" has decided they treated the rat badly and they are to be taken to court. Well DERR, it's a rat that's what you do !!!!
I hope his house becomes infested with them 'cos he'll struggle to re-home them with caring sensitive new owners.

WTF is the world coming to ??

I have actually drawn checks from Peta. We had the landscaping contract for the waterfront condos right beside Peta, and charged them $40.00 for driving a mower about 50 yards along the curb. What a friggin freak show those people are.
How was the chef "cruel" to the rat? Did he mock it before killing it? Put a cat's panties over its head?

BBC News - I'm a Celebrity... producers avoid cruelty charges

From that article it seems pretty clear to me this is just an attempt for the RSPCA to get publicity. Basically the law says you can't kill animals on TV for entertainment, ok fair enough. But they did it for food, they ate the animal. What's the problem then?

Rat, squirrel, what's the difference, IMO. I remember my brother-in-law and i placing an operator-assisted call to Beijing in an attempt to contact a restaurant that specialized in farm-raised rat recipes for potential squirrel cooking use.

They ate it, seems like BS to me. Had they slow-roasted a kitten on TV and NOT eaten it, that would be more prosecution-worthy, IMO.

I didn't think Rats were even considered animals?

That is a new one to me.

Let me guess they want you to trap and relocate to a wild area for them to live free right.

The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

Mohandas Gandhi

Could be that the people in PETA are just trying to get people to work to earn that greatness.

What a load of hooey.

If outlawing the eating of farm animals, wild animals and any meat is greatness, then I will remain mediocre. Ghandi also believed that ancestors were reborn as cows.
