This story has been all over both animal and puroresu message boards the last 24 hours.  To make a long story short, Dragon Gate has a pet monkey at their dojo.  On Dragon Gate's website, Araken (formerly known as Kenichiro Arai) posted a blog with pics exposing the severe abuse of the monkey by Shingo Takagi, Akira Tozawa, and Yuki Ono.  Takagi in the past had actually posted pics himself of the abuse because he thought it was funny.  The monkey was, among other things, choked by the throat until passing out, thrown into a tub of hot water, burned with fire crackers and charcoal, and forced to drink sake until it passed out.  The monkey has been removed from the dojo and is now living with CIMA's parents.  There's major heat on Araken, but supposedly he was so disgusted by what he saw that he put his job at risk to expose the abuse.  This is a pretty major scandal just a month before Dragon Gate makes their U.S. debut and is a big story in Japan, and now it's getting big in the U.S. as PETA is spreading the word and has made this a big item on their websites.

What's wrong with these fucks? Now I'm no PETA  empathizer, but I seriously question how fucked in the head people have to be to do shit like that to any animal.

All sorts of other allegations are coming out about Dragon Gate now.  A tag team called The Young Bucks (Nick & Matt Jackson) did a tour of DG and said they've never seen such open use of steroids in a wrestling locker room before.  There are also charges of old school hazing the likes of which are detailed in "Ring of Hell" about Chris Benoit's time in the NJPW dojo.  If half of these stories are true, these guys are really sick.

Agreed with the entire post above, beginning to end.

Hey, the monkey has to pay his dues just like everyone else if he wants to be one of the boys.
