Comedy Shows Dog Flushed Down Toilet

Unfortunately the movies are again mining laughs from animal cruelty.  The tv stations SPECIFICALLY EXTRACT those portions of the films as commercial 'draws.'  Right now the TV stations are airing a cat sprayed with water and subsequently frozen in the snow (CHRISTMAS WITH THE KRANKS), a small lizard is slapped off a man's hand and goes flying (THE LIFE AQUATIC) and a small dog accidentally jumps into an open toilet bowl, struggles to get out - and is flushed down the toilet (MEET THE FOCKERS)...all for a laugh.  

These commercials are on at all times and can easily be seen by children (they shouldn't be seen by adults either).

Please contact the following tv stations in and urge them to remember that if you teach children that cruelty is funny, you'll have cruel children.
