Urge Manhattan Producers to End Cruel Frog ‘Hunt’
“Accomplice: The Village” is an interactive show in Manhattan that calls itself “part game, part theater, part tour.” One requirement of participants is that they obtain frogs from a live-animal market in Chinatown and deliver the animals in plastic bags to another destination, where the animals’ fates remain unknown. Animals sold at live food markets are wild-caught and suffer unimaginable stress and physical pain during transport. Survivors are crowded together in bins or stacked on top of one other in crawling piles. They are deprived of sustenance and medical attention and are forced to languish, often immobile, for hours or even days. Many are violently bludgeoned or hacked to death. These businesses never should be patronized!
PETA has asked the show’s creators to do away with this aspect of the show, but our request has been dismissed. We need your help today! Please urge “Accomplice: The Village” to replace this task with one that doesn’t support a cruel industry. (You may receive a reply stating that the frogs are being “rescued,” but purchasing animals from live markets simply enables these businesses to restock their stores.)
