While laying in bed watching YouTube videos on a late Saturday evening, I decided to scroll through the new "Shorts" category. The first video I clicked on was a funny TikTok, then I kept scrolling a few more times until I came to a guy making ice cream. Everything was all innocent until I scrolled once again and came across a video titled "crocodile eats a dog". This completely ruined my night and left a sour taste in my mouth.

YouTube has had its fair share of animal abusers on the platform and they preach their community guidelines so far to the point that it's restricting to the creators that provide a lot of its income. As a creator myself, I feel incredibly held back by some of YouTube's more harsh guidelines, and it's hypocritical when a channel that posts mainly rap music decided to one day post a video of a dog being eaten alive by a crocodile while a cameraman stands around and watches. It's appalling to me that they let this content sit there for months and garner 30 million views, 300k likes, and only 150k dislikes while most creators on the platform are afraid of a simple swear.

This content should not be allowed on YouTube, period. It's not an educational animal planet-esque video, it's simply gorey and cruel for the sick and twisted. While the source of the original video is debated, it still should not be uploaded. It's depraved entertainment for some, especially with the eerie sound playing over it that's obviously edited in from a live event of some sort. This video has no place being on YouTube and should be removed from the "Shorts" category and YouTube as a whole as it's edited, made, and uploaded for shock value and it is done in poor taste.
