Woman in rabbit killing 'crush video' apologizes

By Kim I. Hartman     Nov 25, 2010 in World
An Asian woman filmed killing a rabbit by sitting on it has issued an apology online. The woman's apology has been met with criticism from individuals, animal activist groups and online communities, who are not convinced, and believe it to be a lie.
According to online reports, an insider from "crush-fetish" - the organisation the woman allegedly belongs to - said this is often a tactic employed by such fetish groups to deflect the anger from outraged viewers who see the video and demand action and prosecution.
Women who have appeared in previous animal abuse videos, which garnered an equal amount of Internet coverage, also apologized in an attempt to shift public opinion, but they were not being honest and in-fact continued the practice - out of the view of the camera's lens.
Chinese netizens, who have posted on the AsiaOne Forum, are calling for legal action to be taken against individuals and groups who are profiting from these animal torture scenes in the 'crush' video that has horrified millions of people around the world.
Outraged bloggers who have commented on that forum and others say that despite such apologies, whether sincere or not, presently China does not have any relevant laws to punish those who abuse, torture and kill animals.
In the widely-circulated video that is in the news today, and reported on by Digital Journal, the woman picks up a small white rabbit and proceeds to kiss and stroke it before she kills it by crushing it to death, shocking viewers who are demanding an end to the abuse and killing of small animals like rabbits, kittens, puppies and more and are asking for news laws and regulations to be created to prosecute those who profit from this type of fetish industry film.
AsiaOne says, "While many would believe that this is a single incident, it turns out that there is an entire syndicate dedicated to producing and selling such “crush” videos, which are then exported overseas."
A group of twisted individuals who subscribe to such fetishes say, as reported by AsiaOne, "these practices were merely an extension of sado-masochism and that there is no need for netizens to be upset." They also say "people who pitied the animals tended to be awkward around others, hence these animals were their sole concern in life."
Their flippant attitude and these types of comments have been met with threats, warnings, curses, condemnation and promises of future prosecution on blogs around the globe.
The majority of the world will have to wait, watch and see what develops on the front of the horrific 'crush' video scene in China and other countries where this type of disgusting entertainment is allowed.
