Survivor, 48 Hours and My Wife and Kids made The Ark Trust
Inc.'s top-10 list of those delivering 'anti-animal' messages.
The nonprofit animal-protection group's Foe-Paw Report cited
Survivor for killing a pig with a knife, CBS newsmagazine 48 Hours
for its sympathetic profiles on rodeo heroes and sitcom My Wife and Kids

'crushing and stressing' rats, among other things.
A CBS spokesman said the network 'had no beef' with the report. NBC and ABC
executives had no comment.
