    Sick ice bucket challenge arseholes dunk puppy headfirst into freezing water

    The RSPCA has launched an investigation after a young man dunked his puppy in freezing water as part of the ice bucket challenge. Shocking footage shows a teenage lad thrusting the black pup into a green bucket, reports the Sunday People.

    The dog can be seen squirming in the boy’s arms and then yelps as she is dunked headfirst into the water. As he performs the stunt, in a brief 19 second clip, the youth - who is believed to live in London - can be heard saying: “Here’s my dog and she’s doing the ice bucket challenge. She wants to nominate all the others dogs here and all the cats as well, yeah.”

    He then asks the puppy “you ready?” before throwing her into the bucket, which stands on a small table placed in the road. 

    [As a side note, this charity tests on animals. It’s probably worth knowing that most of your raised cash will go on testing on animals, which has been proven multiple times to be ineffective. Please consider donating to a kinder charity that looks into research for ALS and other diseases, such as the Dr Hadwen Trust.

    You can find a list of kind charities here at Humane Seal.]

    Pamela Anderson challenged this too, she wrote on Facebook: ‘Sorry - I can’t bring myself to do your Ice bucket challenge. I enjoy a good dare - It’s always good to bring awareness - in fun, creative ways. I don’t want to take away from that, but it had me thinking. Digging a bit deeper, I found that we may not be aligned - in our messages. So I thought Instead I’d challenge ALS to stop Animal testing. Recent experiments funded by the ALS Association, mice had holes drilled into their skulls, were inflicted with crippling illnesses, and were forced to run on an inclined treadmill until they collapsed from exhaustion. Monkeys had chemicals injected into their brains and backs and were later killed and dissected.”

    ALS uses all the funding people give to torture animals. DO NOT do the ice bucket challenge. Do NOT donate to ALS.

    Are you fucking joking? Don’t donate to ALS because they test treatments on rats? Instead let thousands of human beings die because their life is not worth saving if it means the testing of possible treatments on a few animals?

    You are absolute scum.

    And you are uneducated. Multiple sources show that animal testing with regards to ALS/motor neurone disease do not give ANY benefits - no treatments, no cures, nothing. The results they ‘find’ are barely even passable as to be included as a ‘benefit’. 

    There are several alternatives to animal testing including using human tissues and organs grown in labs that are far more effective at treating neurological and neuro-muscular diseases than testing on creatures that are totally different from us. If you think torturing animals for no reason and ignoring the knowledge from scientists and researchers who repeatedly say that animal testing is ineffective is acceptable rather than using effective and safe procedures that do not involve animal abuse, then you are the fucking scum. Educate yourself on vivisection before shooting your mouth out because you look like a dickhead.

    Do you hate vegans because you love animal suffering or because they remind you that you contribute to it? Are you annoyed by vegan activism because you want animals to continue to suffer needlessly or because you don’t want to change anything in your life to lessen animal suffering?

    I think people take the unlimited calories to serious. I see it as I can eat without counting calories and eat until I'm satisfied, not until I feel sick. But I see how many people can take it wrong. Don't overcomplicate things. Just eat whole foods until your satisfied, eat fruit if you want, eat cooked starches if you want and stay vegan :) <3

    We don’t notice because once we have been “numbed” – we can be “dumbed” down and controlled. The number of times I hear these objections to animal brutality – “Oh no don’t tell me that – don’t show me that – I don’t want to know that” - tells me just how successfully we have been numbed and dumbed.” - Rosemary Wright
