Fear Factor Put Rat in Blender

Last night, 11/8 on NBC Channel 4 on FEAR FACTOR (8 pm - 9 pm in NYC) they put a dead rat in a blender.  

This was not a rat in the street that they found dead somewhere (which would STILL BE UNACCEPTABLE): this was a specially-bred rat as is sold in stores.  

This animal was killed for a damn game show.  And if it wasn't real, it still sends an incredibly bad message.  

I'm trying to make time to make our annual visit to NBC.
