stop allowing animal cruelty images from Hunters and Fur trappers

    1. Petition by

      concerned citizens

The photo sharing website Instagram.com is a wonderful resource. They are very strict in their rules and have blocked many tags you can use to promote your photo such as using the word "sexy" or "porn". One can only assume this is to stop children from seeing images that are only ment for adults.

Then why does Instagram allow images of dead animals that have been brutally killed by fur trappers and hunters? Are these images not harmful for children?

Contact Instagram and tell them to stop allowing Hunting and Trapping images to be allowed and shown on their website. If you wouldn't want your children exposed to porn why would you want them exposed to what is basically Porn for Hunters.

      I have an instagram account that is to raise awareness about animal abuse. Me and my followers try hard to educate others about animal abuse, but we always seem to stumble across an account that is purposely abusing animals and posting their hunting photos. One of the worst accounts I have ever seen is @young_animal_killas . This person and their friends are ganging up on people who are against hunting and animal cruelty and people who are vegan! He called vegans gay, and he told one girl to choke on her lettuce, which is rude and stereotypical. This person was posting pictures of killed animals and saying things like "haha good kill today! Hahaha it's dead now. Lol"

      Me and some other accounts told others to report and block this guy, and we are trying our hardest to get instagram to notice.

      I really want the abusive and hunting accounts to be shut down, because it is rude and offensive!

      My instagram account is @stopanimalabuse00 we try our hardest to stop animal abuse and raise awareness!

      INSTAGRAM ! Me and my family urge you stop allowing Hunting and Trapping images to be allowed and shown on your website. If you wouldn't want your children exposed to porn why would you want them exposed to what is basically Porn for Hunters.

      There are more than enough madness and misery in this world. Do not let crazy people view their images of animal cruelty. Perhaps it iwill be unattractive ...
