Stop Animal Cruelty on YouTube

YouTube is still airing many videos of animals being tortured, abused and killed in the name of entertainment. This form of senseless violence is unacceptable, especially when packaged in the form of "entertainment".  Murder and torture of animals is NOT entertainment and should not be promoted as such. Many of the violent videos that have been flagged for removal stay on the website for several months afterwards, often encouraging "copycat" videos of the same, and in some cases, worse violence toward animals.It is a proven fact that abuse of animals often leads to the later abuse and killing of people. This kind of entertainment needs to stop, and we need to be taken seriously.
