I did not watch the video, I could not bring myself to do that so if you do not want to watch the video please just send an email to the district attorney of Fulton County GA who will not investigate the cruelty being carried out on these poor animals. We need to shout as loud as we can to ensure this company is closed down, please take a minute to add your own personal comments at the front of the email. Thank You Guys.

As you may recall, video footage obtained in a PETA undercover investigation earlier this year revealed disturbing living and dying conditions for hamsters and other animals at Sun Pet Ltd., a wholesale animal dealer that supplies animals to PETCO and PetSmart stores.

PETA is now able to release to the public more graphic footage and photos from this undercover investigation. View the never-before-seen photos and video footage from the investigation now.

Animals at Sun Pet were confined to dark, extremely crowded containers that were like tombs. They were forced to eat, sleep, urinate, and defecate all in the same cramped space. PETA’s investigator also recorded the violent killing and abusive handling of hundreds of animals. While training PETA’s investigator, Sun Pet’s supervisor said of mice, “You could throw them against the wall and they’ll stand back up again and keep on running.”

Shockingly, Paul L. Howard Jr., the district attorney of Fulton County, Ga., has yet to file cruelty-to-animals charges against anyone in the case, including the worker who put live hamsters in a bag and bashed the bag against a table in an attempt to kill the animals inside—which left at least one animal panting and suffering for several minutes. Despite the disturbing video footage captured at Sun Pet, PETA has received information indicating that Howard has instructed his office to halt its investigation of animal suffering at the facility.

Please view the horrific video footage and just-released photos from the investigation and then tell Howard to investigate and file suitable cruelty-to-animals charges against the worker caught bashing hamsters against a table and all others responsible for the suffering of animals at Sun Pet. Ask Howard what constitutes cruelty to animals if not bagging them up, bashing them against a table, and then leaving them to suffer and die slowly from the trauma and injuries.

Thank you for your compassion and continued action for the pet trade’s animal victims.

    you need to explain why charges are not being placed against these people

    Hi Judi,
    The action is from Peta – and like yourself, we cannot believe that the DA has not filed charges of animal cruelty. It is sad to see how little people value life regardless of whether it is an animal or a human. It seems power corrupts and they choose to ignore crimes that are easy to convict, preferring high profile cases which will get them re-elected.

    could not bring myself to watch the clip, just hearing about it is enough. you should be ashamed of yourself as americans to enable such sick and depraved cruelty to go uncharged, you are not a first world counrty while you allow such acts to go unpununished. it is this sort of tolerated evil that separates america from other civilized countries. shame on you, do something or just keep sitting on your hands and keep breeding wonder your counrty has school shootings and multiple serial killers, no wonder other first world people see your double standrds and wonder …start now and show some initiative!!!!

    You would probably have had much more success if you had left PETA out of this. I personaly could not watch the video. It is horrible to think that a reputable company would not have supervisors watching the employees. There is absolutely no excuse for anyone treating an animal like that. However, PETA is better suited for saving chickens or having anti-fur campaigns. They are considered a joke to most individuals. I have personaly had several go rounds with PETA over very serious issues where they took the side completely opposite the animals lives. I will elaborate further if anyone cares. Get PETA out of this and get someone who has the genuine interest of the animals in their heart rather than the publicity they can get over a situation. I will also send an email to Mr. Howard.
