... the rats, snakes, frogs and crocodiles regularly abused on this programme ... So incensed was I, that I immediately sent an email to the ITV to complain.
Gino D'Acampo, the winner of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!, and fellow contestant Stuart Manning are facing criminal charges for animal cruelty after cooking and eating a rat on the TV programme.D'Acampo, 33, said in the show's video diary room: "I saw one of these rats running around. I got a knife, I got its throat, I picked it up."The group, including 30-year-old Manning, ate the rat and enjoyed the meal.Chief Inspector David Oshannessy, from the RSPCA in New South Wales, said it was not acceptable that an animal had been killed as part of a performance.

Foxes - You wrote: "Murder is not wrong to the individual murdered." This is an interesting perspective. I assume an attempted but unsuccessful murder would be wrong to the individual. But there is a converse to this when we consider, for instance, cows raised for food.
All the cows I have ever known had a pretty good life right up to the last few days. Early on suckling from mom. Then grazing obliviously under the sun in lush green pasture, well watered. Shelter available in bad weather, readily available medical care. Fed like royalty the last few weeks. Then KAPOOF - hamburger. The argument is these animals would never have had any of that good life if no one was willing to eat them at the end. They simply would never have lived at all.
