Stacking Food on Dogs & a Monkey -

This was on Youtube - it is a Japanese game show where they see how much food they can stack on their pet before the poor thing snaps and devours the food. Watch the monkey at the end - unbelieveable!

I fail to find the humor in teasing animals so humans can get a laugh. Would you do this to your children and put it on YouTube..."Stay, Jimmie, while Mommy stacks 17 cookies on your nose for this video so everyone can see what a good boy you are." If you wouldn't do it to your children, why do you think it's funny to do it to pets?

If I were to try this, my furbabies would sniff, take the food and probably bite me for being so stupid in teasing them!!

Just to clarify, I'm not stating that I think the video is hilarious, I think it is weird. I also can't believe how incredibly well trained the animals are to wait so patiently for their treats. The monkey was panicing - poor thing.

It has been pointed out that this is supposedly a family site, although I don't know just how many members below the age of 18 that actually spend any time here. If that's the case, we should be giving them good examples of our interactions with animals, and not "weird" examples. Hey, it's only a dog and a monkey, so I guess it's really no big deal as long as a few folks get a laugh from it. The line must be drawn somewhere else...

If you actually have empathy for the monkey, why would you leave this video up to promote the emotional abuse of the animal? Maybe I'm the one who needs some enlightenment that this is wholesome and worthy of a family website.

This is not animal abuse Joe. These are animal tricks. This is not different then going to the circus or watching stupid animal tricks on David Letterman. No animals were hurt doing this. This is quite different from your post about kicking dogs.
