Facebook: Add animal abuse to reporting & deleting criteria for animal cruelty pages

    1. Petition by

      Friends Against Animal Abuse Pages

The animal abuse pages on FaceBook are graphic and sickening to the average Facebook member. They show (mostly) dogs being beheaded, boiled alive, beaten, starved to death, and many other horrid things. These pictures are repugnant to the "average" FaceBook user and do nothing but showcase sick minds and allow the abusers to gain notoriety.

There are processes by which one can report violent, hate-filled pages, and they will be removed. In the drop-down menu of reasons to report or delete the page, there is no mention of animals, yet you can see graphic pictures from FaceBook pages "Dogs Suck", "I hate Pit Bulls" "Kill Dogs" and a host of dogfighting pages.

Please add "animal abuse" to your reporting and deletion criteria, and please take it seriously. Facebook takes from 5-10 minutes to reject animal abuse pages, and about 3-4 months for human obscenity. This tells me that Facebook is automatically rejecting any reports of animal abuse without even considering the request.

      Animals are sentient beings and are naturally entitled to the same rights as humans. Facebook should reflect that. Thank you.

      Animal abuse is immoral, unjust and intolerable. It should not be allowed to be displayed on fb in any way, shape or form. Fb society is for sharing civilised information and those who are uncivil should be banished from sharing and posting on fb.

      Why encourage cruelty by showing these sites, you are only encouraging cruel sickness.

      Its is very important to all society as anyone who harms or defaces or finds humour in animals suffering are very sick individuals; this is a form of removing the value of animals and conscience of humans to be aware that it is wrong to harm in anyway. Would it be acceptable to show babies in the same way if not animals deserve the same attention for we all have a right to live peacefully and respectable. PLEASE put an end to the animal abuse page save humanity

      It shouldn't have to be explained why this is happening.
