Is there a way....?

There is this person in youtube (https://www.youtube.com/user/fighterbettas888/featured) and he also has a website (http://fighterbettas888.wordpress.com/). He sells plakats for fighting. He puts videos of them fighting and sells them saying they have "powerful bite" and "stamina".... I was wondering if there are ways to get them to take down the sites, at least the youtube channel?

Report it to youtube. Hopefully they will take action. Actually, I'm pretty sure it's illegal across most of Asia.. Including there. Early 2000s the laws changed

If the bettas are actually fighting on Youtube, you may be able to flag/report it as animal abuse.

Unfortunately, there isn't really much else to be done. There's still problems with things such as dog fighting in countries where such activities are illegal, and people treat fish with a lot less consideration and empathy than they do dogs.

That photo is resized. It says: "My past does not define me. My strength is an illusion. My calm hides a storm. My innocence is not ignorance.
