Dear .....:

This letter is in protest to your January 6th FEAR FACTOR segment involving contestants eating horse rectum on national television for prize money.

The segment not only made a mockery of our beloved horses but our American culture as well. In this country, we choose not to eat our pets, i.e. pleasure, recreational and sporting animals; animals not raised in this culture for the edible consumption of humans.

In the State of California where it was represented that the segment was shot, Penal Code 598c makes it a 'felony' to slaughter a horse for human consumption and a 'misdemeanor' to offer or sell horsemeat for human consumption. And in the State of Texas where it was represented that the horsemeat was purchased, Agriculture Code Sec. 149.002 makes it a 'crime' to 'possess or sell horsemeat for human consumption.' And bills are in Congress now to prohibit nationally the slaughter of any American horse for human consumption.

If contestants choose to degrade and humiliate themselves for money, that is their choice. If, however, FEAR FACTOR sanctions the cruel slaughter of American pet and companion animals, disrespects American culture and flaunts the law, that is the responsibility of the producers and sponsors.

Thank you.

Cathleen Doyle
