Allow Instant Capture of Animal Abusers on Social Media

Target: Paul Ryan, United States House Speaker

Goal: Pass legislation to demand instant capture, investigation, and arrest of animal abusers on social media.

There is a particularly disturbing brand of animal abuse taking place: not only the mistreatment of animals, but the capture of it on videos posted to social media. The most recent incident involves two teenage girls who allegedly posted a video of themselves setting a dog on fire to Snapchat, shortly on the heels of the MTV star who shot a shark.

This trend amplifies the already reprehensible crime of animal abuse via people threatening or even ending the lives of innocent creatures just to gain views on social media. “Crush” videos involving people stomping on small creatures, pets being shot, and sharks being used to open beer cans are only a small sampling of what this trend has to offer.

However, there is one thing to be said for such a practice: those who post the videos on social media are easier to catch and investigate, and even punish. People who harm animals to gain views and attention can easily have their methods used against them, which will hopefully lead to the trend dying out. Sign this petition to urge lawmakers to create legislation requiring sites start reporting these videos to authorities.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Representative Ryan,

Animal abusers have recently been posting videos of their actions to social media as a ploy for views. These people are all too happy to sacrifice or endanger the lives of innocent creatures for the sake of internet notoriety; two girls are recently under investigation for setting a dog on fire, and several sharks have been used as props or target practice.

However, the posting of these videos makes it much easier for the abusers to be caught. It is imperative that all social media sites report these videos to the authorities immediately, so that the perpetrators can be caught, investigated, and punished. Please do everything in your power to pass legislation putting this into effect as soon as possible; the more animal abusers are instantly caught, the greater the chance that this trend will die out.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. We need to get a petition going to social media sites where people posting such atrocities get banned from using the site for life. This would be easy to police as each abuser would have plenty of people who know and hate them and could report them if they registered under a fake name. They would soon be stopped if they were racist and animal abuse should rate just as highly. Bunch of sick wankers, should be locked up for life.

  2. there should be strict laws outlawing videos of animal abuse of any kind to be shown. these sub humans are doing this for attention.the ones that are doing the videoing should be hunted down and arrested. they should be punished severally. there should be no plea bargaining. just the death penalty. the gas chamber would be good. there is NO EXCUSE for this kind of abuse.

  3. GET THESE ABUSERS NOW.

  4. PUT THESE COWARDS IN PRISON AND TORTURE THEM!

  5. LETS PUT ALL THESE KILLERS FACES UP SO WE CAN SEE THEM JUSTICE NEEDS TOO BE DONE ONE WAY OR ANOTHER AND LETTING THESE MONSTERS KNOW WE ARE LOOKING FOR THEM KILLERS NEED TOO BE PUT AWAY BECAUSE THEY WILL KEEP ON DING IT UNTIL THEY KILL ALL PEOPLE SO THESE PEOPLE THIS PERSON NEEDS TOO BE CAUGHT AND SERVE TIME WITH KILLERS THAT WILL FEED ON THEM.

    Really we shouldn’t need to be signing petitions for this heinous behaviour. The companies should be taking down these videos and reporting these perpetrators to the authorities, and then, banning them from all social media groups.

  7. SIGNED TO END CRUELTIES OF INNOCENT HELPLESS Defenseless AND VOICELESS CREATURES FROM GOD. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE AND Unlawfully DISGRACEFUL AND RIDICULOUS TO DO THIS BRUTALITY INHUMANE KILLINGS OF INNOCENT ANIMALS and ALL ABUSERS MURDERERS AND TORTURING TO DEATH THE INNOCENT HELPLESS AND VOICELESS CREATURES SHOULD BE punishment into prisonment.
