Read my diary entry that includes a letter you can cut and paste and change up to send amazon.com, who support animal fighting through the sale and distribution of animal fighting publications.

It's all about- me, me, me

Yes, read my sister's entry and tell Amazon.com that you won't buy from them until they stop supporting the animal fighting industry!

I think this should be a petition with some backing from the Humane Society or Peta or other animal rights group

PETA is opposed to the existence of domestic animals. They literally believe that your pets would be better off dead than living with humiliating fact of being your pets. Their involvement damages the credibility of any animal welfare activity they choose to support.

Addy is right, PETA cannot be utilized by serious animal activists. If you march with them your as good as supporting them (In my eyes) Same with the HSUS. Lets just get the ASPCA involved, they are good decent animal folk.

And here is Amazon.com's disgusting response:
Thank you for writing to Amazon.com with your comments.

We have great respect for your concerns. One of our goals as an onlineretailer, however, is to offer our customers the ability to purchase a wide variety of products on our site. It is unfortunate but inevitable that some of our customers may find a few of these items objectionable.

We always value customer feedback, and we have passed along your desire that we exclude items of this sort from our site. Thank you again for taking the time to contact us at Amazon.com.

Does that get everyone angry enough to write?

Luna, thanks for your well constructed letter. I sent a copy off to Amazon. Good work...lets keep the pressure on.

Also thanks for the info concerning Peta and their stand on animals. I feel the same way, but my parrot , other birds, and two dogs are not amimals, they are just well covered kids in disguise.

What kind of books are they? I searched "dog fighting" but I was afraid to click on the links because you know when you search for stuff on Amazon, then they think you want to search for more like that in the future? Are they history books, promotional, how-to?
