The following is to put things in perspective.
to IDA (In Defense of Animals) and its members, the San Francisco
Art Institute suspended an "art" exhibit titled "Don't Trust Me"
consisting of six televisions displaying video images of six
different animals -- a doe, a goat, a horse, an ox, a pig, and a
sheep -- being bludgeoned to death with a sledgehammer.
I'm not sure if the exhibition was "classified", as in movies -
G, PG13, Restricted, X, XXX, etc... Anyway, even without
resptrictions, I can't imagine parents bringing their children to
see this exhibition. Nor can I see parents buying a DVD at the
exhibition and bringing the snuff movies home to show their children
for entertainment or art appreciation.
Can you? Probably not. But this is just a hypothetical question,
right? Wrong. Guess what? Some parents do even worse. They do it
LIVE. Not only do these parents show their children how to snuff out
an animal, live, they make their children do it themselves.
It is called HUNTING.
How obscene and depraved can some people get?!
