Pets that kill people on Animal Planet

Animal Planet wants us to believe that it is performing a public service of sorts with “Fatal Attractions.”

And yet there’s an undeniable element of exploitation of people who are less than mentally competent in this three-part series about people who keep dangerous animals as pets. People who are attacked and sometimes killed by those animals.

“We are not trying to present outrageous things,” insisted Marjorie Kaplan, president and general manager of Animal Planet. “We are telling stories that happen in the world. … This is intended to explore what it is that causes people to do this, not to glorify it.”

(The three episodes air Sundays at 8 and 11 p.m. on March 14, 21 and 28.)
