You know what. It was such a repugnant thing, and i wanted to share it with you all, yet now I'm sorry that I posted it. I seem to have ruined the days of a lot of people now with that story, and the animals involved have not benefitted from our distress. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">. Meanwhile, hearing about an awful abuse like this makes it more difficult to feel compassion for our fellow humans, as awful as they sometimes act. I wrote something in the article's comments, to the effect that the author and the website should avoid publicizing articles like this, as increasing their exposure only promotes them for most people. However, they are simply exploiting something that somebody else did. I might see if i can find the contact information for the original studies authors, and share that with you all. Then we can write them and express our dismay, and request that they discontinue further studies. Thanks everyone for your support on this issue, and I'm sorry to have just shared something so upsetting with no positive action associated with it.

It's okay. It's important to be informed about the bad things going on in the world just as it is to know about the good. Knowing what we're up against makes us stronger. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
