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
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:
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
