Stop Animals From Being Killed, Tortured, and Eaten Alive on YouTube

Target: Susan Wojcicki, CEO of YouTube

Goal: End the torture, abuse, and killing of animals for human entertainment.

YouTube is profiting from animal cruelty. Videos of the abuse and torture of animals are on the rise in popularity, with dramatic consequences for the victims. An investigation on an online platform called “Lady Freethinker” published the shocking details of the promotion and encouragement of animal suffering.

Many of these disturbing videos violate YouTube’s own community standards, as well as U.S. and U.K. laws such as the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act. Nevertheless, the company condones videos of sentient beings suffering for human pleasure, including captivated and chained up monkeys and animals that succumb to injuries after being run over by vehicles. Additionally, the platform presents videos of dog- and cockfighting, animals that are eaten alive such as octopuses, staged videos where animals are put in life-threatening situations to be “rescued” live on camera, and numerous hunting videos that show illegal actions.

With over 1 billion views, these horrific videos might be worth $15 million for the people who post them and up to $12 million in advertising revenue for YouTube, based on an average cost per 1,000 views taken from a Business Insider survey. In the United States more than half of children between the ages of 8 to 12 watch online videos every day, mostly on YouTube. Animal cruelty videos convey a wrong message to kids and could have a traumatic effect on some.

The multibillion-dollar company YouTube has the responsibility to review and regulate the content on its platform. It has to step up to protect animals, children, and our society.

Sign this petition to urge YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki to implement a no-tolerance policy toward all animal cruelty, use a mechanism to discover videos with abusive content, and willingly remove any video in violation of this policy.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Miss Wojcicki,

Animal cruelty is on the rise on your website. Videos promoting cruelty towards animals violate your company’s community standards, as well as U.S. and U.K. laws such as the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act. Nevertheless, videos of cockfights, animals that are eaten alive, and dying animals are found on your platform. As the CEO of YouTube, you are directly profiting from the abuse of these thousands of animals. Additionally, countless children watch these videos that can have devastating effects on their mental health.

You must implement a no-tolerance policy toward all animal cruelty. This should entail employing a mechanism for quickly and accurately discovering videos featuring animal abuse, and promptly removing all videos in violation of such a policy. Govern the videos on your platform and protect animals from abuse now.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Dirty, inbred bastards. So sick of YouTube turning a blind eye to these bastards. This shows the depravity of these sick inbred inhumane pricks. They are mutants who have failed in life so they torture something helpless to give them an imagined upperhand. Too bad the tables couldn’t be turned on these disgusting oxygen thieves. I hope karma brings each of you a slow torturous death.

They need to be treated the same way and let them to c how it is.

    Why can’t or don’t you tube help track these evil pieces of crap and help report them and/or get them reported to the law. Anyone who recognize it k is these useless punks, alert the authorities. Oh lord,I wish I could kick each and every one of their asses. Breaking their.limbs would also make me feel good. PATHETIC!

  5. Michelle Stewart says:

    Animals being tortured, killed, eaten alive is disgusting and barbaric and must be made illegal all over the world. Anyone caught doing those types of videos should be executed

  6. Sharon Slocum says:

    This is disgusting and very sick. It takes very sick subhumans to do crap looks this. This is animal torture and killing almost at its worst. These lowlife subhumans need criminal animal abuse torture and killing charges filed….hefty fines and jail time.

    • Jeannie Russell Frank says:

      This allowance of these people to continue to do these terrible inhumane vicious crime against innocent,vulnerable animals MUST BE STOPPED NOW.These horrible,disgusting individuals have no place anywhere except to lose their pathetic lives!!

  7. Those who did this need to have the same thing done to them that they impose on these innocent animals. They do not deserve to live!!!!

  8. Susan Wojcicki You indeed are a SICK INDIVIDUAL since you condemn this and allow it in YOUTUBE. I never want to use YouTube and will tell all friends and family not to use it because of your demented mind!

  9. Youtube cancels political content they disagree with but okays Animal Cruelty! Animal Cruelty is a FELONY in the U.S. Google owns YouTube and should remove this barbarity now!

  10. It also helps that it’s posted more views means someone will speak out or it can go unseen and ongoing regardless. Online is how most get caught. Let them incriminate themselves. At same time I see how it can be encouraged just 4 views from the mentally unstable people doing this. Just being censored isn’t enough

  11. Raymond Stevens says:

    This sick shit must be ended. The scum that do it should be ended.

  12. Leaving these videos air is enabling more crazy people to abuse living creatures. Why are these videos not censored?! These companies need more and better policing in regards to offensive media. Torturing and killing ANY creature is NOT acceptable entertainment!

  13. Any cretin who harms an animal must have the death penalty implemented and nothing less. I am disgusted with pathetic You Tube, who encourage and do not prosecute these evil vermin.

  14. Cynthia Bernett says:

    Please report these people to the authorities!

  15. This is beyond sickening to me! First, authorities need to use these horrible videos to track down these low lives. Then, go and rescue all animals. Then they can focus on arresting these monsters and work on removing these disturbing videos.

  16. Simonetta Scott-Crossley says:

    Well said. I agree. These are EVIL SCUM SAVAGES WORSE THAN FILTH VILE ROT OF THE EARTH MONSTERS!!!!!

  17.

  18. These disgusting and sickening videos promoting EXTREME CRUELTY must be BANNED NOW!!! YouTube is a DESENSITIZED, DEHUMANIZED, SADISTIC AND PARANOID SCUM to allow these horrific videos to continue.
    Susan Wojcicki You indeed are a SICK INDIVIDUAL since you allow this PSYCHOPATHIC HORROR to continue. BOYCOTT YouTube, the true SATAN on this planet!

  19. We have PSYCHOS in our midst — CRIMES against ANIMALS MUST be taken SERIOUSLY — YOUTUBE has responsibility not only NOT to post BUT to inform the Police — The more new evil exposed every day regarding horrific cruelty to Animals, the more I KNOW we must rally & ACT — the IDIOT-ABUSERS-KILLERS will repeat their brutality unless we STOP them – We NEVER want repeats – WHAT KIND SOCIETY would allow for such torturous suffering & death to Animals? – And, for WHAT!? — our Entertainment?! — YET, there go the MENTALLY DERANGED — continuing with their unconscionable, sadistic EVIL to Animals — I want to hurl — we MUST put a STOP to this horror.
