PETITION TARGET: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg

Animal cruelty videos are being allowed to spread like wildfire on Facebook, promoting horrific violence against monkeys, dogs, cats, and other species.

From baby monkey torture videos —  in which helpless macaques are beaten, mutilated, and terrorized — to fake “rescues” where innocent puppies are attacked by snakes or intentionally put in other painful and terrifying situations, animals are being deliberately harmed for views.

It’s time to stop the cruelty.

Allowing animals to suffer purely for entertainment, or to gain social media followers and subscribers, is unacceptable, and platforms have an obligation to ensure that the content they permit to be displayed is safe. Animal torture has no place on social media where it may encourage others to inflict violence on innocent creatures, or even reach the eyes of children.

We are calling on this social media giant to take action against the horrifying trend of animal abuse videos being posted and shared by the public.

Please sign this petition to urge Facebook parent company Meta to take swift and meaningful action to identify and remove all content that promotes or glorifies animal suffering, shut down the groups and pages that post this horrific content, and enact policies and technologies to stop such content from being posted in the first place.
