This Haunted House Is Terrifying for Rats!

Scandia—a “family fun” center in Ontario, California and Pennhurst Asylum, a Halloween attraction in Spring City, Pennsylvania—reportedly use live rats as “props” at their annual haunted house events, scheduled to run until the first weekend in November. 

According to attendees, rats are being used to scare people!

rats-arent-props-imageWTF?! Here’s the deal: Rats are highly intelligent animals who are extremely sensitive to noise, vibrations, and lighting—and being subjected to the chaos of haunted houses, without being able to escape or defend themselves, is pure torture. Let these companies know that it’s cruel to use rats as props, and ask them to stop! Polite comments can be directed to:

DO MORE: Also leave a message on the Scandia and PennHurst Facebook walls asking them to stop using rats. All animals matter, and no animal deserves to be treated as nothing more than an inanimate prop!

    I’m going to submit what I typed to them on the Facebook page, but I also took a screenshot of it. Do I need to send that to anybody?

    Honestly, you can buy realistic-looking toy rats! There’s no need to use real rats!
