Stop Cutting Up and Serving Live Animals at Restaurants

Target: Kate MacDonald, CEO Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals

Goal: Enforce the current laws which prohibit cutting up and eating live octopus.

Two Canadian restaurants, Gal’s Sushi and Marado Sushi, are apparently serving a Korean dish called “sannakji” which translates into wriggling octopus. Unfortunately, the dish is as cruel as it sounds. Octopus are cut up alive and then served while their mutilated tentacles still move.

According to biologists, there is no doubt that octopus can feel pain. In fact, many believe octopus can anticipate and remember painful situations as well. Dubbed the “primates of the sea,” octopus are incredibly intelligent and feel each time their tentacles are severed.

Sign this petition and demand the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (OSPCA) enforce the laws that protect octopus from this cruelty. We must prevent restaurants from serving this barbaric and inhumane dish.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. MacDonald,

It recently came to my attention that two Toronto restaurants, Gal’s Sushi and Marado Sushi, are serving dishes which consist of cut up, living octopus. Octopus, also called the “primates of the sea,” are incredibly intelligent animals and are protected by Ontario’s cruelty to animals legislation.

According to scientists, there is no doubt that octopus feel pain. At these sushi restaurants, octopus are taken right from the tank and chopped into pieces bit by bit. Typically, chefs will go from the bottom of the tentacle to the top, so the octopus can feel every hack in their flesh. The tentacles are still moving when the dish is served as each tentacle in an octopus has its own series of neurons that serve as a brain.

Reportedly, the restaurants have been informed of the current laws, but are continuing to serve this dish. Please take a stand for these octopus and enforce the current laws that protect these amazing animals. This cruelty should not be allowed to continue.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    what fucking revolting people on this earth I hope they die a terrible death too.

  2. A lot of humans SUCK!

  3. What type of person would enjoy eating a live animal? That’s beyond sick and disgusting and totally depraved. Any restaurant that participates in this horrendous activity should be shut down – permanently.

    • The type of subhuman who should be killed off, that is who, wicked, barbaric retards- someone put a bullet in them. God Bless the animals

  4. What the hell is this practice doing in Canada?!

  5. What kind of vile sickness do these so-called human beings have?! The restaurant owner, the preparers, the servers, the customers are ALL depraved!! They know that they are causing these poor live very intelligent marine creatures immense suffering–and yet?!
    Doesn’t Ontario, Ca have any standards of humaneness or do they believe that intentional cruelty toward some live beings is acceptable and can be ignored?!
    This deranged activity must end, and the restaurant closed!!

    stop it! please go vegan.

  8. THESE LIVES ARE NOT OURS TO BE THIS WAY TO NOW. BAN THIS INHUMANE TREATMENT ON THESE GREAT LIVES NOW.

  9. I have heard about this practice, and It is absolutely horible. I like eating meat, but this is insane! Butchering a creature while it is still alive is just horible. At least cows get killed before they are butchered!

  10. Alice Knight says:

    This is a disgraceful way in treating any live animal.
    shame on you and your establishment. There is no need to make any animal suffer in any way shape or form in this capacity as to satisfy one’s palate and to make money.

  11. How do some people such as these animal torturers sleep at night? Barbaric and horrific and has no place anywhere – stop this evil gluttony now!

  12. Disgusting faggots.we need global war to weed these faggots out.I would carve them up without any problems.I watched a slanty cutting a cuttlefish with a pair of scissors on youtube the poor thing was trying to stop his hand with its tentacles.I hate slanty eyed faggots for what they do to cuttlefish.dogs.and foxes plus racoons and live feed at zoo’s
    And their sick behaviour toward girls and women.

  13. Anne Moeller says:

    If all of us live a vegan and vegetarian life style- As I du- there will be NO demand for any living creature to be tortured for people to eat- So come on people start living this lifestyle and let these creatures live!!!!!

  14. SOME PEOPLE HAVE NO HEARTS…THIS IS SICK…SHAME ON SOME PEOPLE…WHAT HAS THE WORLD COME TO…SAD

  15. SADISTIC PSYCHOPATHS ONLY CAN DO SUCH HORRIFYING THINGS! STOP THIS MADNESS AND PUT THOSE WHO VISIT THIS DISGUSTING “RESTAURANT” IN JAIL INSTEAD. THIS MENTALLY DERANGED HUMAN SCUM ARE FUTURE MURDERERS AND TORTURERS !!! STOP THIS INSANITY IMMEDIATELY. THESE ATROCIOUS EATING HABITS ARE NOT WORTH A CIVILISED COUNTRY AS CANADA !!

    The two sushi restaurants in Canada must be IMMEDIATELY shut down and put out of business with their licences NEVER EVER to be issued again! The exploitation, cruelty and appalling abuse of these, and probably other creatures, is despicable. PROSECUTE Gal’s Sushi and Marado Shushi and make an example of them with as much publicity as can be mustered. These evil profiteers must pay for their truly shocking cruelty that they have subjected these innocent creatures to. How any members of the public can just sit at their tables and witness such disgusting abuse of innocent, harmless and vulnerable living creatures is beyond comprehension. The OSPCA MUST IMMEDIATELY enforce the law to protect all octopus and other sea life from this barbaric unacceptable abuse. Ontario’s cruelty to animals legislation is questionable and needs to be investigated. As for the chefs who carry out such barbaric, tortuous and despicable cruelty to a living creature – words fail me! KARMA! Come on Ontario, take steps to put this evil wrongdoing right, without delay!

  17. What kind of person would want this and what kind of eating establishment would serve it, both kinds of sick minded inbreed morons they are the pits of the earth. Not only should this insane horror end also boycott every restaurant who serves it.

    There is NO place for this kind of abuse it is pure senseless evil.
