In Reply to: PETITION AGAINST TORTURE OF SNAKES ON TV SHOW FEAR FACTOR! posted by ram on December 30, 2002 at 15:52:27:
torture and mis-use/abuse of the snakes on several of the showings/taping of this show for a minute. Now if one of these contestants came down with SALMONELLA....? That would be a story and raise some eyebrows. Of course I KNOW that contestants have to sign a waiver of somekind but can anyone think the way it would go if indeed one of these people came down with a bacterial disease or something else like a bite from the caiman and or snake episodes. Also while we know that the episodes of scorpions and turantulas was of the lesser venomous species, even these could cause a severe reaction to some individials. It blows my mind that one of these contestants haven't gotten serious ill from eating some of that crap that they are forced to eat in order to stay in the running of winning. It also blows my mind that the AHS hasn't stepped in as they are soooo adherent to on the filming of any animal on movie sets. I just don't get it !
