My name is Wendy and l am doing this petition about the ITV programme lm a celebrity get me out of here, while I have no objection to the actual programme I am disgusted at the continual escalating abuse this programme is allowed to carry out against the various animals used in the programme, most especially the arthropod species which are squashed, and eaten by their thousands over the course of the series, purely for "entertainment" purposes with little if any regard that arthropods are just as important in the world as any other kind of animal, in fact if we had no arthropods in this world we would not survive. They have also taped up or bound with elastic bands the mouths of young crocodiles that have been used in other "trials" again this is wrong and unacceptable. I have therefor decided to go outside their studios in London at the end of February and protest about this complete abuse and disrespect for animals shown on this programme, this will not be just a few hours of protest to make a point l intend to stay there gathering signatures, etc. until a representative of the programme agrees to meet with me however long it takes. l have set up a facebook group which l am trying to update as often as possible the link of which is http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=206489702472&ref=mf there is a link on there to the poll l have set up too. lf we can have animal circus's banned as being inhuman, fox hunting banned as it is animal cruelty then why is it that this programme is allowed to kill and abuse animals and get away with it?? Their treatment of animals on this programme is also teaching children that it is "ok" to use animals in this way for fun and THAT IS WRONG!!! I am looking for as much support as l can get in my venture whether it be with a better website facility, people that would be prepared to come down outside the studios with me, give me other contacts, get me some publicity, in fact any help would be welcome. lf you have any expert knowledge in arthropods, reptiles or horses then Im even more in need of your support and back up, if you could join the group, write an email explaining your experience etc. and that you agree with the reason of my protest, any extra information you can add from your expertise would be very welcome, also to vote on the poll as often as possible and get as many people as possible to do the same things it would strengthen my protest greatly. lf you or anyone you know would like to be further involved l would be only too happy to accommodate, please message me on the facebook link. Thank you for reading this and l hope you will add your vote of support.
