Angry Why I have no faith in humanity

you dont make betta fight like that just because its a sport in asia. The fighters there are actually taken very good care of versus these poor fish which will probably end up dying or getting flushes.
it irritates me people do this to fish. i bet in the wild the weaker male will just leave and no one would get hurt. it makes me want to find them and punch them. GAH!!! ok rant over

Flagged as animal abuse.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

The link was removed because it is against the forum rules to post videos depicting animal abuse.

None of those videos that I have reported have EVER been taken down. Youtube continues to condone fish fighting, fish being flushed down toilets, fish being killed right in front of the camera... it just disgusts me. People are even using the site to sell "trained" fighting fish and get in contact with other fish fighters. Don't people see that allowing this to continue endangers other animals as well? Why does everyone get to hyped up against dog fighting, but not fish fighting? It's pretty much the same.

Robert Falcon Scott - Red salamander HM plakat
Passed on- Friedrich "Freedy"

OTHER CRITTERS:
Four African Dwarf Frogs - Dorkus, Sporkus, Baron(ess), and Bubbles!

IDK which video link this is, but I have seen Betta fight videos. It's just terrible, in one video this person called it "Bettas behaving badly" Because he assumed you could house Bettas together and they were doing this wierd thing where one was biting on the others lip and flipping it! They both had torn fins, naturally, but at least the guy didn't do it on purpose unlike other videos of Bettas, mainly Plakats, fighting. I always flag and the videos are never taken down. It's just terrible.

If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows

I think we should all write an email to youtube complaining about these videos.
