Slaughter Porn: PETA Slams Charity Calendar Featuring Dead Animals

A new calendar, reportedly to benefit an association that trains guide dogs for the blind and disabled, is causing a stir in the Czech Republic where it’s slated to be released in a few weeks.

In one image, a scantily dressed model holds onto a freshly-killed pig while chickens pecks the blood-soaked ground around her. In another, a women has supposedly just slaughtered a pig in half with an axe.

Understandably, PETA has slammed the images, calling the calendar “slaughter porn”.

“Only a sociopath could find sexual excitement from the depiction of horrific and violent acts against frightened living beings,” the UK Metro quoted the group as saying. “Such imagery is likely to get the public to consider that real pigs used for meat are sensitive beings who suffer violent, bloody deaths and who do not want to die.”

Diana Kobzanova, a former Miss Czech Republic featured in the collection, hit back at the animal cruelty allegations saying that all the animals featured are models built specifically for the shoot.

Um, ok — but why that theme? If you’re raising money to train guide dogs, why not something a bit more “aw, dogs!” related. Or at least something someone would want to hang on their walls. This is just…depressing.
