Tonight, 27 February 2010 I was watching Australias Funniest Home Videos and sadly watched how
1. A parent videoed a child pull a kitten into a bath full of water
2. Listened while an audience thought this was very funny.
This is not the first time that this particular video clip has been aired and it concerns me that Chanel Nine and the Funniest Video Team can view this clip as funny.
There is enough cruelty to animals in Australia without promoting a cruel act on a TV show.
I feel very sad for the kitten that is now going to grow up in a household that finds such actions funny. I wonder what other awful actions this family will make their kitten go through. I really believe the RSPCA should investigate whether this family should really have an animal in their home at all!
Pets innocently doing funny actions is all very well but when humans force them into cruel situations that is just not on.
