Victory

From Deena Howe: As one of the founders of a dog rescue this product enraged me, we had to do something so we started up this petition and networked it on our fan base on Facebook. Our rescue (Save My Tail - based in Durham Region and Peterborough Ontario) but we have a loyal following. I also work with a group of ladies in Operation Sled Dog which is spread out across Canada. Between all my local and canada wide contacts and my amazing friends in the rescue community we plastered this everywhere! We needed Walmart, Sears to know that it is NOT ok to sell products like this. This leading to letters being written to the manufacture as well.

This product ONLY encourages and teaches kids that dragging a dead skinned dog on a chain is okay!!! It is SO important to teach love and compassion of animals to children.. That Walmart thinks this is an acceptable product is DISGUSTING!!! Any Parent who would buy this product shouldn't have kids..

To:
Stop selling " dead Dog Prop " for Halloween

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      This dead dog prop shows a complete lack of regard for what is acceptable and unacceptable. The prop implies and tacitly accepts abuse & cruelty against animals.
