Ban Dogfighting Videos on YouTube

Target: CEO of YouTube, Salar Kamangar

Goal: Ban all pro-dog fighting videos on YouTube

The brutality of dog fighting is a universal fact, yet every person with internet access has the ability to watch the violent sport. The video-hosting website YouTube features thousands of videos relating to dog fighting, many of which are gruesome and disturbing. These videos could be seen by children, or they could be utilized by someone hoping to start practicing dog fighting. By hosting dog fighting videos, YouTube puts both dogs and humans at risk.

Dog fighting is notorious for its barbarism, and there have been many steps made to end it. On YouTube, however, dog fighting enthusiasts post videos of recent fights, and, even more disturbingly, instructional videos on how to be successful in the bloody sport. This only encourages people to take up the sport, and so it puts dogs everywhere at risk. The bloody fight footage is a potential danger for children who might be playing on YouTube, as well.

These bloody and disturbing videos should not be allowed to be published on YouTube because they only promote violence and animal cruelty. They put dogs, children, and people of all ages at risk, and they encourage a barbaric sport that will hopefully soon be obsolete. Demand that YouTube ban all pro-dog fighting videos.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Kamangar,

YouTube offers millions of videos to billions of people, and while many of these videos provide entertainment and education, some of them promote violent practices. The videos published glorifying dog fighting, and instructing others on how to properly begin dog fighting, need to be taken down and banned.

Such videos promote a violent and barbaric practice that the world is trying to end. If there are no more videos published advocating this sport, there will be that much less information out there for people to learn from. These videos can also be seen by children and teenagers, and the footage is always disturbing. Dog fighting is an obviously brutal activity, and all videos advocating for it must be taken down.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  3. Any one who participates in this horrendous activity either dog owner’s or observers should be tried, found guilty and immediately executed!!! Absolutely no mercy for them…

  4. YouTube needs to come out of the Dark Ages and listen to the majority of people who believe that it is intrinsically wrong to allow dog fighting videos. Allowing this is just as bad as being at one of these cruel, money-making, horror events.

  5. Lynn Biddle says:

    When I don’t want to sign a petition, but know there are others after it which I do want to sign, how to I access these others?

  6. Maybe these people that use dogs for fighting o make themselves appear manly are a bit inadequate down the trousers

  7. Disgraceful!!!!!!!! The ppl that do this to dogs. Should have the same done to them. Let them get ripped apart by the dogs they are destroying by making them fight and see how they like it.. There should be more being done to STOP THIS HAPPENING. Also the gangs going around looking for dogs as bait should be punished big time. The POLICE should be doing more.

  8. STOP THIS SENSLESS ACT OF BRUTALITY!!!! THESE ARE BEAUTIFUL ANIMALS AND DESERVE TO BE LOVED AND CARED FOR!! CATCH THEM AND MAKE THEM PAY FOR WHAT THEY ARE DOING! SHAME ON THESE SO CALLED HUMAN BEINGS FOR BEING SO STUPID!

  9. Lori Sento says:

    Ban dog fighting videos. Unbelievable that u tube is not responsible in governing itself humanely.

  10. Carolyn Forrest says:

    I can’t believe Utube would allow this type of video to be broadcast.

  11. Thomas Coxon says:

    Maybe it’s time for the authorities to use the information that ISPs are now required to record, to identify and “interview” those posting such videos.

  12. Kathy Willis says:

    I am a former cruelty investigator. The practice of dog fighting as a sport is illegal in all states. YouTube is allowing illegal acts to be displayed on it’s website. I for one think this site should be investigated for giving permission to allow these inhumane practices to be shown. They should be forced to give all information on these cruel perpetrators so they can be prosecuted and all their dogs and other animals on the premises can be seized. Unfortunately there is no guarantee that they will be adoptable. Some areas in the country euthanize fighting dogs. All of us have a duty to report any suspicious activity. Do not approach any known fighters as some can be dangerous. If they have no compassion for their dogs, there’s a good chance they have none when it comes to humans.

  13. My God, my God… What kind of sick – or evil – or both – kind of people are there in this world! It makes me feel ashamed to be human! Please let all of us decent people who care about animals and suffering get together and do something!

    the huge increase in dog fights just shows how retarded society has become,primitive blood lust has taken over, breeding lions and tigers in africa just so some brain dead idiots can go and shoot them with no risk to their own lives,then they go home and boast about it,this is getting scary!!

  15. kathyknight says:

    I think I’ve signed this petition before and will willingly sign it 1000 more times. This whole thing is so terrible in my mind. Dogs are warm, loving animals, almost human in their mind set. DO YOU THINK THEY ACCEPT THE FACT THAT THEY WERE BREAD TO SUFFER?

    The only way to get these down is to bookmark this url to Peta. This is where you contact Peta to let them know of a page like this. This unfortunately will do nothing more than either them taking it down(where they will never be caught)or more traffic. In the Peta website they ask that you do not let them know you have reported them. There is also a link to the FBI, and they give instructions on how to contact them. Here is the url: http://www.peta.org/action/get-active-online/cruelty-on-the-internet.aspx. Please do not forget to bookmark it. This comes in handy to get the word out as I am doing, giving it to friends and of course, contacting Peta. PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT LET THEM KNOW YOU ARE REPORTING THEM. This is unfortunately the only way these POS’S are going to be stopped

  17. THESE BARBARIC SCENERIES ARE MONSTERSWORK, NOT HUMANDEGRADING, ABSOLUTELY WRONG & UNACCEPTABLE AND TO BAN IN THE MOMENT!

    Pure infantile primitivism – what kind of idiotic monsters are able to handle and destroy living creatures in that way is unbelievable – monsters deserves monsterwork too.

    People need to vote unacting dumb authorities and officials acting irresponsibly to futuregenerations out of occupations NOW AND FOR ALL!

    “While we ourselves are the living graves of murdered beasts, how can we expect any ideal positions on this earth?”
    George Bernhard Shaw

    “Compassion is the chief law of human existence.”
    Fyodor Dostoevsky

    HAVE YOU ALL LOST YOUR HUMANITY AND YOUR BRAIN, PERSONS RESPONSIBLE ??
