Stop torturing pet snakes for entertainment

On this TV show, pet breeds of snakes are dumped into a vat of ice water with a frightened, thrashing contestant. None of these snakes are swimming species. They are at risk of immediate injury and death from the temperature, drowning, and the contestant's thrashing. After the show they continue to be in danger of respiratory infections from breathing in the water, as well as prolonged risk of death from the cold temperatures. This is inhumane and blatant animal abuse.

To:

Stop torturing pet snakes for entertainment. Whatever made you decide to dump snakes which can't swim into a vat of ice water, it is animal abuse and it is disgusting. As a consumer of entertainment, I can assure you that this is not entertaining in the least. It is reprehensible. Stop torturing animals.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      There is an unconfirmed rumor that the "ice" in the vat is actually stage ice, which would not lower the temperature of the water. Nonetheless, these are heavy terrestrial snakes which are at grave risk of pneumonia and drowning, as well as injury from the contestants. Furthermore, people watching this may easily assume that it is safe to treat pet snakes in this way, since PETA has declared that the snakes are not at risk in this show. This is simply unacceptable.

      Why isn't this important to me. These snakes are being tortured for entertainment. Many will die from respritory infections ect. I will stop watching this whole network until this show is removed.
