Those emotions can range from pure joy (think of kitten videos) to absolute rage.
A few high-profile retailers have pushed the “absolute rage” button.
The targets of animal lovers’ ire are Sears, Walmart, and Amazon.com. On their respective sites a third-party vendor posted an item called “Dead Dog Prop.”
It is exactly what it sounds like: “Foam filled latex prop of a skinned dog with a large tire track squished through its mid torso. Chain attached for dragging purposes. You have seen bloody road kill, this is bloody road kill,” according to the description.
This is a piece of foam, mind you. Not an actual animal.
Each company saw its share of negative Facebook posts (some choice samples of which you can find on the Consumerist website).
