Stop Cutting Up and Cooking Live Animals

Target: Ben Hueso, California State Senate

Goal: Prohibit animals from being prepared alive in restaurants.

At many restaurants in California, a dish called “sannakji” is served. Sannakji is Korean for wriggling octopus and that is exactly what the dish is: A live octopus has his sensitive tentacles hacked off one by one, and when there are no more limbs, the octopus is ripped open from the mantle to let his intestines fall out.

Octopuses feel pain just like humans, dogs and other animals do. Each time a limb is severed, the octopus can feel the new wave of pain. Octopuses are incredibly intelligent animals and are known as the “primates of the sea.” According to Cephalopod expert Dr. Jennifer Mather, octopuses “can anticipate a painful, difficult, stressful situation – they can remember it.”

Sign this petition and demand lawmakers prohibit animals from being prepared alive in restaurants. To continue doing so is incredibly cruel.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Senator Hueso,

At many restaurants within California, a dish called “sannakji” is served, which is Korean for wriggling octopus. The dish is often prepared in front of guests and the show is incredibly barbaric.

Chefs chop up an octopus limb by limb until they are all gone. When each sensitive limb has been hacked off, the octopus is ripped open from the mantle to let the intestine fall out. Octopuses, just like dogs, rabbits and other animals, feel pain and experience a new, unbearable rush of pain each time a limb is cut off.

Octopus are incredibly intelligent animals and should not be subjected to this unnecessary torture. Please consider introducing a new law that would protect animals and ban restaurants from preparing animals alive.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
