News not as bad as originally thought?

Well, regarding my last post, it seems that the horrific practice described may not be as widespread as initially reported. Nobody is saying it doesn't happen. But the practice, "while not unheard of", is not as common as the reports seem to indicate. Here's the Snopes link. Don't click on it unless you really want to know/see some horrible cruelty:

I sent off a quick note to PETA just in case they hadn't heard about it. They had. They replied back quickly with a form letter saying authorities on the crappy little French island where it was happening are aware of, and acting to end the practice, and prosecute those who may have taken part in it.

I still may not sleep well tonight.
