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]

  1. This is absolutely disgusting, what barbaric scum bags. Shut their shitty restaurants down! I have just warched the recent David Attenborough programmes on the ocean and the octopus is so clever it can disguise itself from predators by covering itself in shells, it’s curious, intelligent, has to be provided with ‘toys’ in activity to keep it stimulated, it can even problem solve! Yet here are these monsters butchering it so it dies in agony. You absolute evil scum, who in the western world would sit at a table and watch and eat this and think it’s ok? Evil, evil, evil

  2. what do you expect from asians they eat anything that breaths whether it’s dead or not all they do is torture animals and kill them dogs cats horses donkeys now this the poor things every living thing has feelings and can feel pain this is disgusting but then look who’s doing it the sick bastards and the ones that eat it are just as bad

  8. Nooshin Perla says:

  9. Rose Coffey` says:

    I have always thought this is a barbaric practice. This needs to be stopped. It’s ignorant and horrible.

  10. Alexandre Engelen says:

    If these sushi restaurants have been informed and they still do their business, they should be closed down. What is the administration waiting for?

  11. Fkng ASIANS!!! It’s always the DISGUSTING FKN ASIANS!!!!

  12. All so pregnant bitches(because that’s what we need-to add to the human overpopulation crisis!)can eat and murder another living animal, as SO-called “safe” sushi.

  13. I HOPE THAT EVERYONE THAT WORKS AND EATS THESE INNOCENT CREATURES GET SO SICK AND DIE A VERY PAINFUL DEATH. THE IS SO BARBARIC AND ONE OF THE HIGHEST FORMS OF CRUELTY. I HOPE THESE RESTAURANTS BURN TO THE GROUND WITH THE OWNERS AND WORKS IN SIDE.

  14. They do feel pain and this is disgusting. I have a small breed in my aquarium, they have heart and personality. Please stop.

  15. all those who benefit from the animals will die
    with extreme pain

  16. OMG!
    Let’s have these customers slice off a finger and use that for sushi! One by one, all of their fingers, then an ear, an eyeball…Nice and fresh!…
    A barbaric display of ignorance and cruelty.

    However, I noted a number of racist comments about Asians, which I cannot agree with. I’m still arguing with my (non-Asian) mother about the common practice of boiling alive crab and lobster, which is an EQUALLY barbaric display of ignorance and cruelty.

    Sadly, the human race is far from “humane”.

    Disgusting barbaric people will eat Anything and everything. If your such a civilized country why do you promoted this animal cruelty.?????? Hopefully those eating sushi of live creatures will soon drop dead of some parasite disease.

  18. Elaine Milbourn says:

    How the hell can you be referred to as civilised when you treat living creatures in this way. Shame on you, you are disgusting. Join the 21st century and end this dreadful cruelty.

  19. Agree with all the above comments. So over stupid, over-breeding humans and now only support animal, conservation and environmental organisations. Bring on the next big pandemic!

  20. Graham J. Knox says:

    The entire human race has degraded into cruelty by letting its stomach rule. We need to fight this shit tooth and nail. STOP boiling, burning, or cutting up animals alive OR dead! There are pathetic losers who delight in committing this crime against lobsters, octopuses, cats, dogs, pigs, etc. and the list goes on. I wish murdering such slime was legal. I wish nothing but stage 4 cancer upon these cunts.
