“The metal devices, also known as “rape racks,” are utilized to limit female dogs so that they can’t resist as they’re installed by males,” a PETA representative said.

PETA lodged a problem with the Bentonville, Ark.-based business on Feb. 23 and within 3 weeks the $139.61 racks were noted as “out of stock” on the website.

Walmart did not right away react to an ask for remark.

“Breeding stands for dogs have been used worldwide with breeders for years, but that cannot justify their use alone,” according to a March 12 post on The concerns concerning the safety of the bitch throughout the procedure and the morality of its usage are all part of a raving dispute that has actually been going on for many years.”

The stands are normally utilized by breeders who “want to mate two aggressive dogs,” according to the post.

“Profit-hungry breeders use these stands even when a female dog is not ready to mate,” according to the post, which calls out breeders who utilize dogs that are simply 6 months old instead of the appropriate 2 years-old.

Animal Activists Have Describe Dog Breeding Restraints As “Rape Racks.”
Walmart explains a dog that’s required to mate when its not “ready” as “utterly gut-wrenching.”

“Nobody has any business breeding more dogs into the world already bursting at the seams with homeless ones,” PETA said in a declaration. “Walmart’s decision to stop selling these despicable racks sets and example of compassion and responsibility.”

Nevertheless, the gadgets are still being offered on significant e-commerce websites consisting of Amazon and eBay.
