Ban violence against animals!

This petition made change with 626,834 supporters!

We call on Facebook to change their Community Standards to stop the glorification and inciting of violence against animals. Only the inclusion of those terms will allow users to report specifically on certain Facebook pages. This way, violence against animals could be banned from Facebook.

There are plenty of pages, groups and events where animals abusers post pictures of sadistic and cruel violence against animals. These pictures show animals being trampled alive, stuffed into jars, burned alive or being sexually abused.

No matter how often you report these pages, groups, events and images, you always get the same answer:

"Thank you for taking the time to report something that you feel may violate our Community Standards. We reviewed the comment you reported for containing credible threat of violence and found it doesn't violate our Community Standards." (source: Facebook)

Obviously Facebook think, that violence can only be executed against humans and not against animals. But violence against animals is also unacceptable and morally wrong. This doesn’t seem to be the case for Facebook and some of their users.

We call on Facebook to change this and consider animal welfare. Facebook should not encourage potential imitators by allowing sadistic content online. By changing their Community Standards they can show, that society doesn’t tolerate such behaviour.
