Crocodile killing - complaints to Channel 4

Post by MooBag » Mon May 19, 2014 10:43 am

If anyone would like to complain to Channel 4 about the cruel, needless, and inhumane killing of a crocodile on "The Island with Bear Gyrlls" for the purposes of 'entertainment' here's how:

Go here: http://www.channel4.com/4viewers/contact-us" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Channle: Channel 4
Programme: The Island with Bear Gyrlls
Broadcast date: 12th May 2014

Needless to say, I have complained, (even though I didn't watch it, the trailer was barbaric enough for me!)
Any extra pressure might make them think twice before funding this sort of cruelty in future.
thank you!

I didn't know anything about this programme, but I have now complained.

Following on from the complaints about the killing of the caiman crocodile, there is now a petition calling for Channel 4 to stop killing animals in the name of 'entertainment', as follows:

"On 12th May there was a programme called the Island with Bear Grylls, The programme premise is that men are flown out to an island to learn 'survival' skills. This programme showed a caiman (small crocodile type reptile) being caught, trussed and then killed in the most barbaric way, having a knife put through it's head whilst fully conscious. Complainants to Channel 4 have been fobbed off with inane responses. Please tell Channel 4 to STOP this barbaric and unnecessary animal abuse for entertainment and pledge nothing of this nature will be done again."

Sign the Petition Here:

Complaints can also be made to OFCOM. The RSPCA are also contacting Channel 4 over this issue, in response to a number of complaints regarding the caiman slaughter.
Please cross post to any other animal-friendly forums, thank you!
