 **********WARNING DISTURBING IMAGES***********

   A few weeks ago my younger cousin showed me a flyer. It was so thoughtful of her to think of me and remembered to tell me about this flyer...

Yep, It's a flyer trying to make Halloween night, "National Kill A Pit Bull Day". In the flyer it speaks of how pit bulls have a high threshold for pain, and use items like bats, poison knifes and bricks to kill the dogs. The flyer also mentions if you can't find a pit bull then kill any big dog you find. 

   This is a post from a guy named "Terry Jordan". Who knows if Terry Jordan is a real person, and if it was him who actually posted this. But regardless of the social media name and picture, there is a real person behind this. Someone out there wrote these words. He sat down and took the time to type this post about killing dogs on Halloween.

   Newspapers and tv broadcasts have covered this story, and have marked this story a Hoax. But regardless of what the media has deemed a "hoax". Someone out in this world still posted those disgusting words and had to realize this world is full of stupid people and those simple words he wrote could have ended countless dogs lives.

   As a dog owner, those four red letters stamped across a paper doesn't erase the horrid words beneath. 

    Call it bad timing, call it ironic whatever you want. But this year at your local Sears and Wal Mart you could pick up this Halloween decoration for only $125.39

   Skinned from nose to tail, the prop was described on WalMart's website as a “foam filled latex prop of a skinned dog with a large tire track squished through its mid torso. Chain attached for dragging purposes," according to The Consumerist. "You have seen bloody road kill, this is bloody road kill.”

  I love Halloween and I'm all for making it fun and gory. But in my personal option this crosses the line. Not only is it Gross to look at and in very bad taste but the dog also looks like a pit bull. Maybe I'm a little sensitive right now about the pit bull issue because of the "National kill a pit bull day" but either way this Halloween "prop" is horrible. 

  Walmart, Sears and Amazon have all pulled the "dead dog Halloween prop" from their shelves but Sears is the company to offer an apologise to the public. 

   I know my little blog isn't going to change the world and I know even if I were to boycott Walmart for the rest of my life and my children's life and grandchildren's life, it wouldn't even make a noticeable ripple to a huge company like Walmart. But It makes me feel better sharing all this info with you, whoever you may be.
