STOP THE AIRING OF "EATEN ALIVE" - BOYCOTT DISCOVERY CHANNEL.

STOP THE AIRING OF "EATEN ALIVE" AND BOYCOTT THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL.

The Discovery Channel is now committing animal abuse for creating a show called "Eaten Alive." A grown man in a "special suit" is planning on being eaten alive by a Green Anaconda.

This is animal abuse to the highest degree and absolutely disgusting, and could kill the snake - an adult green anaconda cannot fit the width of an adult man's shoulders into it's body.

It once again reinforces the negative stereotype of snakes, which one would think would be the opposite of what Discovery should be trying to do.

Please sign this petition and boycott the Discovery Channel and get this show taken off the air.

I've been fascinated by snakes my entire life, and feel this stunt is void of educational value while ruining Discovery Channel's credibility. The show promotions even show the host holding an anaconda by the head as if he's about to be attacked. That's perpetuating stereotypes that condition people to fear these animals. Humans are not their natural prey!

No matter how it ends, this is animal cruelty from start to finish so I hope you will support me.

This is the same network that 20 years ago brought us Steve Irwin, The Crocodile Hunter. Steve educated and excited people with his passion for reptiles, and made me and many viewers feel that same love for them and support conservation efforts. It is sad to see that this has what become of Discovery programing.

I would like everyone to tweet and post to the Humane Society so a prominent organization can take action.

Please also CALL 1-571-262-4899 to voice your displeasure directly to The Discovery Channel.
