Youtube issues...

feel free to move/delete if duplicate, ect.

how did i not find a page on here about youtube's biggest issue:

betta fighting.

i search "Betta" often, to see if there's any stunners out there, or see if anyone needs a bit of help with a sick one, or education on proper care, but today, i found something that angered me so greatly, i wanted to slap someone.

some teenage boys stuck three stunning bettas in a glass cup(with what looked like a chunk of pineapple. o.0?) and laughed and joked as they fought. sad thing was, in video 1, the poster questioned if it was legal! i wanted to go off on them SO BAD, but i've done that before and got ganged up on about it. >.>; so, i held my tounge, gave them a thumbs down, and flagged them. i don't come across fighting videos often, since i don't search "Betta Fight", but when i do, it makes my blood boil!

once, i came across a video of a kid who put FOUR in a half-gallon/gallon Kritter Keeper, and laughed as they fought!

i dunno what else to do, other than post them here and on other betta forums, and get them flagged and removed. could we possibly get youtube to do something about them? :< i hate seeing stunning bettas, not just PKs either, fought when i'm trying to help people keep their bettas happier and healthier.

Posting youtube videos of bettas fighting or any other animal cruelty is against the forum rules. I understand that the reason people want to post links to these videos is to make people aware of the videos so they can flag them. Watching these videos is very upsetting to a lot of members. Here is a link to the youtube video rule.

You can still talk about these issues. You just can't post the links.

I agree.

I once saw a series of Betta fighting video by the same person showing a 30 or 40 minute fight... I was sooo angry... then I see a locked door in the background.

Some kids fighting their fish when they know they'd get in big trouble if their parents found out... And most comments say things like "Don't get angry it's their culure in Asia!" SERIOUSLY? It was in a locked bed room.........
