Reader unhappy with haunted house picture

If I wanted to see dead animal carcasses hanging up, I would visit a slaughterhouse and meat packing plant.

If I wanted to see gruesome scenes from a horror flick, I would go to a horror movie.

If I wanted to go to the 22nd annual Zed 99 Haunted House to be grossed out, I would do so. However, I do not choose to be grossed out in any of these ways.

I do not expect to pick up a newspaper and see a human, bloodied carcass hanging from a pole, in the name of entertainment.

I found the picture on page 13 of the Oct. 17th Red Deer Express disturbing, offensive, tasteless, and inappropriate in a public newspaper.
