I don't like PETA either, but the point is made - Check out sanctuaries before sending ANY animal there. Something too few people do.

Anyway, the point I was trying to make is that PETA made this video. PETA is (from how I follow, or attempt to follow, their thinking) against sanctuaries. I no longer trust video tape. I have worked some as an extra in the television industry and you can put ABSOLUTELY anything in front of a green screen and make it look real. I had a friend who had a friend who worked on animal cops and the friend swears it is all staged - or maybe "mostly" staged - that there may be some issues but nothing like what is shown. I don't trust anything I haven't seen with my OWN eyes and I certainly am NOT going to trust a PETA video about ANYTHING.
