U.K. Parliament - Outlaw animal crush video by enacting legislation with severe penalties

This petition had 220,433 supporters

Animal crush videos generally feature, but do not limit themselves to, small live animals, such as kittens, puppies, mice and bunnies being slowly tortured in the most horrific ways imaginable.
They are burned alive, cut with pruning sheers, nailed to the floor, skinned alive, beaten, stabbed and most often, they have their limbs crushed and broken, just to invoke more screams of agony.
The majority of these videos share a common theme, the animals are incrementally crushed by scantily clad women in high heels. Those who purchase these videos, view them for sexual gratification. Basically speaking, the animal crush interest is an atypical sexual arousal toward the the horrific torture and distress of another life-form. The sick, twisted, prurient animal crush industry has become increasingly popular all over the world. It will continue to escalate the degradation of our society if nothing is done to curtail the sadistic underground industry.
It is not as difficult as one might believe, to find websites that house animal crush video on the internet. Some mask themselves within pornography websites where minors can access these materials with the click of a mouse button. Freedom of speech has its limits when it promotes violent criminal acts and places a society in danger. Please realize that those who are capable of such acts of violent behavior, do not always limit themselves to brutality against animals.
There is nothing socially redeeming about animal crush videos or animal torture videos used for entertainment purposes and the people who produce, buy or distribute them, are simply dangerous.
Consider the effect that animal crush video has on both human and nonhuman lives in a society on a global scale. It causes a desensitization toward life, in general and whilst there are many factors that contribute to the generation of the serial killing mind, nearly all serial murderers share a common history of animal abuse, in their youth.
Child pornography is obvious violence against children and it was banned for blatantly promoting heinous, illegal acts. Films that exploit, torture and kill anything for sexual entertainment purposes have absolutely no place in a civilized society. A child can be severely emotionally damaged by these forms of depictions and that can lead to mental disorders or antisocial behavior.
