Hello Fellow Catsters!
If you have not heard the story of the YouTube kitty, it is a sad one. Last week I was browsing through funny cat videos and came across one in which a 16 year old boy was torturing a cat. Outraged, I asked my fellow Catsters for help (The thread is in Laws and Legislations forum). Of course, they responded and with the help of fellow Dogsters, we were able to pressure the kid to remove the video and also we contacted the parents! The parents have informed us that they are getting the kid the help he needs.
The problem is, this video was on YouTube for almost 4 months! Hundreds of users flagged the video to be removed and YouTube took no acton to do so!!
We have created a petition asking YouTube to enforce their own codes of conduct by not allowing videos of animal abuse to be shown. Sadly, the video I found was not the only one depicting cruelty to animals.
Mr.D has created a video on YouTube asking users to sign the petition, it can be found here-
Please sign the petiton and help keep videos of animal abuse out of YouTube!! The petition can be found here- http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/956629011
We only need less than 300 signatures! When we hit 1,000 signatures I will hand deliver this petition to the CEO of YouTube myself!!
