Victory

From Melanie Neer: My petition concerning the "Dead Dog" prop was by no means the only one to protest against the sale of this item. Due to the collective efforts of many who expressed their disgust with such a prop, the item was removed from sale from Walmart, Amazon.com, eBay, Sears and a host of other websites. Here is just one such article about how websites removed the Dead Dog prop. http://consumerist.com/2013/09/17/walmart-amazon-sears-pull-dead-dog-prop-from-online-listings-amidst-social-media-furor

ATTENTION;  UPDATE ABOUT THIS AT END!!

I recently became aware of a product that is currently being sold on the Walmart website, but suppled by UnbeatableSale.com, and that being of a "Halloween" item called Costumes For All Occasion DU2351 Dead Dog Prop.  The description of the item is as follows: 

Costumes For All Occasion DU2351 Dead Dog Prop

Item Description:

You have seen bloody road kill, this is bloody road kill. Foam filled latex prop of a skinned dog with a large tire track squished through its mid torso. Chain attached for dragging purposes.

Item can be seen here:
http://www.halloween-mall.com/mc740043.html

While the item was removed from the Walmart on-line site, it still remains on the UnbeatableSale.com site and am urging the removal of this "item"

While Halloween is supposed to be a fun time filled with a bit of "gore", I as well as many others find absolutely nothing amusing in the sale of such a gruesome and disgusting "prop" as the Dead Dog Prop.  Day in and day out people in the animal activist and advocate community are trying to bring awareness to the realties of horrific issues concerning animal abuse and this "prop" only seems to condone the idea of such abuse. There actually have been known cases of dogs (and cats) being tortured, and yes skinned alive.

Therefore, I as well as many others, urge  UnbeatableSale.com to discontinue and pull off this most offending and disgusting item from your website and therefore discontinue it's sale.

I urge people who sign my petition to also flood both Walmart and UnbeatableSale.com with emails to get this product removed.  Here is the contact information for UnbeatableSale.com

      I am an animal lover, of course; and this product is utterly tasteless.

      NOTHING should glorify the mistreatment of pets/dogs/animals!

      I too, think this so called PROP is EXTREMELY offensive!! There are too many dogs that are being TORTURED in the EXACT same fashion that this PROP displays!! There is NOTHING that says HALLOWEEN with this PROP!! :)

      For WALMART to even THINK about selling this, let alone MAKING THE ACTUAL DECISION to sell it, makes me, once again think twice about ever shopping at WALMART again! I have JUST began shopping at Walmart after telling myself I would never shop there again... Now THIS!!

      I know that I am only one person, but I am going to show this PROP to everyone, and I am hoping, if this PROP is not discontinued asap, then I was fine shopping at other stores, and I am sure everyone else will be also! Who ever decided to let this PROP be sold, should be ashamed of yourself!! It tells me what type of CHARACTER & INTEGRITY you have!! You are a person who I personally wouldnnot want as a neighbor, let alone a friend!! Totally disgusting!!

      As an animal lover and rescue I find this prop to be unacceptable. It appears that you need to see an actual animal in this condition. You can make money in a different way.
