Punish Man Who Forced Cats to Fight Scorpion on YouTube

Target: Suthisak Sucha, Thai Society of the Prevention of Cruelty Director

Goal: YouTuber who posted video of his cats being forced to fight scorpions must be prosecuted.

A young man took a video of his two cats being forced to fight with a scorpion. The cats can be heard crying out in pain, but he doesn’t bother to stop. The scorpion latches on to the naturally curious cat’s mouth, and laughter can be heard as the cat tries desperately to shake the creature off. The owner, Nate Bartling, uploaded the video, titled “Cat vs. Scorpion” to his YouTube channel, which has over 3 million subscribers. He also said that he purchased the live scorpion from a shop, but later found his cats playing with it. Other videos uploaded by Bartling show his cat being tied to helium balloons and being tossed into the air. The cat is in clear distress throughout the entire process of both videos. In yet another video, Bartling is seen holding the cat by its arms and legs, holding it upside down in the air before cruelly dropping the cat over a pillow.

Multiple people, including another YouTube channel owner, reported the cruel video to the police. Before filing a police report, one viewer said that she consulted with a veterinarian who told her that scorpions can be deadly to cats. “If you look at the clip, you can see that animal cruelty was committed,” said the Lieutenant Colonel of Huai Khwang Police station. The issue is being investigated, he added. As one of the people who reported the cruelty stated, there are a lot of young people who watch the channel and they’re going to want to follow this man’s example. That’s why we must pressure the authorities to make sure that this animal cruelty case is treated seriously. Please sign this petition to demand that Bartling face serious repercussions, if the investigation concludes that he’s guilty of animal cruelty.


Dear Suthisak Sucha,

A young man posted a YouTube video called “Cat vs. Scorpion,” where his cats are seen being forced to fight with a scorpion. Laughter can be heard when the scorpion latches onto the cat’s mouth as the animal tries desperately to shake it off. Despite the cat’s visible and audible distress, the owner never stops the “fight.” Other videos also show this man being cruel to his cats for entertainment purposes. In one video, he’s holding the poor animal above a pillow by its arms and legs, belly-up before letting go.

There are over 3 million subscribers to this man’s YouTube channel. That means millions of people, including young people who are easily influenced, have been exposed to this so-called entertainment. This is no way to treat pets, and there’s no reason innocent animals should be used like this for entertainment and views. We, the undersigned, are calling on you to see to it that this man faces repercussions for his actions, if guilty of animal cruelty.


[Your Name Here]

    Hope the bastard gets scorpions all over his body & suffers greatly❗️?
    Signed & shared ?

  2. Where are the cats now ??

  3. C.A. Rose says:

    Scum bastards. I haven’t had much contact with Thais but the little I have had is not positive. Cruelty to animals seems to be as acceptable as fireworks are on the Fourth. NO concept of depraved cruelty and NO concern for a sentient creature’s pain or terror.

    When the hell are the morons who own YouTube, Facebook, etc. going to forbid this sick junk from being posted in the first place?

  4. Lilian Caughlin says:

    Put him in a glass cage and attach a scorpion to his ba$$s.
    Eye for an eye is the only way to get results. Everybody knows who he is, I’m surprised he is still able to walk and talk.
    Get rid of this a$$hole. Detriment to society. You Tube shouldn’t allow those types of videos to begin with.

  5. This guy needs to be shut down NOW. He craves attention, a little mindless dummy who will continue to abuse animals with no thought to the harm he does. He pretense was “Missionary” and Huffington did a blurb on him.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/sara-ruthnum/meet-the-american-mission_b_10134814.html. So he thinks he is untouchable. When you hear innocents cry out….something is definitely wrong-and this MORON should have at least known that.

  6. Bonnie Douglas says:

    This has got to stop humans are abusing more and more animals we need very strict laws NOW.

  7. Bartling is clearly mentally unstable — WHERE are the authorities? — Get these cats, who suffer 24/7, out of that horror house immediately & bring them to Cat Rescuers — Criminals like the idiot-monster Bartling should not be walking the streets appearing as if normal — they’re a danger to society — we MUST stop them permanently & ensure no copycats are realized! == CRIMES AGAINST ANIMALS MUST BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY — PUNISHMENTS & PENALTIES MUST BE SEVERE!! — REMEMBER, we do NOT want repeats of these crimes!

  8. Chrissie Johnson says:

    He should be castrated so he can never breed.

  9. Susan Fong says:

    Nate Bartling is evil. He should be convicted of felony animal cruelty, pay the maximum fine, and rot in jail for as long as possible.

  10. Patricia Dumais says:

    This man should permanently loose the right to have animals.

  11. Stick this piece of shit in a pit of poisonous vipers and videotape it. I’d watch and share that! With popcorn!!


  13. Darlene Avery says:

    Find and prosecute this psychopath. This is horrific animal abuse and these poor cats deserve a new loving home. Nothing like this torture and abuse should EVER be allowed on line.

  14. Nooshin Perla says:

    GOD DAMN THESE F. WHO CALL THEM SELVES MAN!!!!!!!!! If you have video of them, how come you can not arrest them???????? Why do you even show their sick videos in the first pose, and giving them what they want????? That make you part of their sickness. STOP wasting time on these evils. Just give them what they deserve. GET RID OF THEM!!!!!!!!!!! GOD.

  15. this piece of inhuman waste has to be found if they know his name why isn’t he arrested for animal abuse and the sickos that watch this kind of cruelty is just as bad as him put this creep away and make sure his cell is full of scorpions these poor cats have to be found he’s just going to keep on doing this and probably escalate to more crueler things

  16. horrible and sadistic .Please get this monster and please create higher prison sentences for animal abuse everywhere .

  17. He deserve a permanent ban from YouTube, but that won’t stop these sicko’s from posting on any other sites. One has to really sick and evil in the head to do such things. What is it with these Asian countries and their cruelty towards animals, I really don’t understand. Is it really entertaining to hurt another being? If you think that’s okay than you are a danger to anyone not only to animals, sadists, that’s what you people are. He deserves to be permanently banned and the cats should be taken away and replaced to a new loving home. He should not be able to have any animal/pet.

  18. filthy evil scum need hanging!!!! NOW!!!!

  19. I want this little shit KILLED OFF.

  20. I’d like to see all those scorpions shoved up his ASS and then plug up his putrid hole! DIE YOU POS!!
