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.

      All animals should have an equal chance. Stop using animals for sport!! Quit poaching!! Quit abusing!!! Animals feel emotional and physical pain just like humans.

      Because animals have an unconditional love they give us. Man's motives are selfish and inhumane for the most part. My step day was a very abusive man to me and my mom, but he was very cruel to animals too! Evil people are cruel to animals!!
