    Bowing down to dog lovers this takes the cake as Distortions says they will pull the prop... I would tell them to take their dog for a walk into a lake and stop picking on small business owners. These people are idiots!

    Larry,
    It is hard to argue with STUPID. It is like banging your head up against the wall. I don't think Distortions should pull the prop. "If you don't like the show turn the channel!"

    If you give in on this one thing they will want more. I really can't believe Ed would turn his back on items that made him what he is. He may as well gut half his line. As for the "Animal Lovers" that feel offended get a life. I would say that 99% of these people are not his target audience anyway. His continuing success with Making Monsters is proof enough of that. I love animals too but I am not STUPID enough to be offended by a fake prop. Yes STUPID

    Yah, you'd think that activist had more...constructive things to do than to put the pressure on Ed and his crew. That's pretty lame. It's a hard spot for Ed though - because he may have felt like he was in a no-win situation. On one hand he has an activist group breathing down his neck and on the other the haunt industry. Either way you piss someone off.

    I'd think though that activist have some more "real" problems to fight, like you know, actual abuse on animals...not a Halloween prop.

    All I can say is, has Ed become a TV star and not a prop builder. The only reason to give in is to satisfy the viewers of the TV show, not haunters. If his concerns were for the people that buy his products this would not be a consideration. Sorry Ed but when ratings are more important than artistic freedoms then it may be time to decide if you are a hauter or a TV personality. They tried to do the same with the guys from Duck Dynasty and their response was shove it where the sun don't shine. Maybe you could send the molds over to Creepy Colection or Dark Ride and they can make them, I am sure they won't bow down for TV ratings. I just lost a little respect for the Distortions crew, I thought they were hard core horror guys, but I was wrong.

    First of all let me say that not all dog lovers are stupid, and the people you are refering to are more like animal extremists. The whole thing is absolutely ridiculous, these people are fine with all the blood and gore until that blood and gore belongs to an animal. I don't understand the thought process! The prop doesn't offend me at all, and I love my dogs. From a business point of view, Distortions probaly did the right thing. It takes the heat off of them and they can go back to peacefully doing what they do best. I just saw this today and have been posting good comments on their page to counter these lunatics. I think everyone should go post something good on their page, they have got to be sick of being bombarded by all the negative crap. We all know them to be a great company and great people, we should show some support.

    What concerns me the most is that this has set a precedent and given this group of animal activists/extremists a victory. I'm sure it won't stop now, now that Distortions has empowered this group and the media has picked it up. Watch out for the next National headlines: "Animal Activists who WIN Animal Cruelty fight with popular TV show now turn their attention to the atrocities seen in Haunted Attractions". Just in time for Halloween.

    Of course, it could all be great for business.
