I just heard about a new show that's going to be on Animal Planet, called Rat Busters NYC. Being a rat and animal lover, I am completely appalled by Animal Planet having a show like this where the rats are going to be killed and not even in a humane way.
What were they thinking?
Obviously they were not. It seems money talks though and they must think they can make some money from a show like this one or they wouldn't have it on a channel that is about animals. What does this say to the people who watch Animal Planet?
It says, Animal Planet doesn't really care about animals, they only care about their profit margins. What were they thinking adding to the ever growing animal control shows on an animal related channel like this. I realize that most people consider wild rats in places like NYC to be pests that need to be exterminated, but they are live animals who have as much right to life as anyone else.
I don't know about you but I am going to be contacting Animal Planet and telling them that as long as they have shows like this on, I will be boycotting their channel and telling everyone I know to do the same.
