One can intervene when witnessing animal abuse. Write letters to the editor of newspapers, speak before classrooms to impressionable young people, treat animals well and encourage others to do the same, site local, state laws which pertain to animal abuse, neglect, abandonment,...enforce these by using a citizens' arrest if necessary, write/call your legislator and representatives on local, state and Federal levels, sign petitions, campaign for those politicians who are sensitive to animal issues, stop using products which test on animals, speak out, have strength to stand up for our animal friends, support laws against animal abuse, work towards strengthening these laws, the list is endless. Wherever you see a need..,.fill it when it comes to helping end animal abuse.
VERY IMPORTANT: READ THIS!! MAKE CONGRESS ENFORCE AND (IF NEEDED) CREATE LAWS WHICH FORCE WEB SITES LIKE YOUTUBE AND CRAIGSLIST AND OTHERS TO MONITOR THE UPLOADS, FORCE THEM TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR DISPLAYING/ALLOWING VIDEOS SUCH AS "CRUSH VIDEOS," AND OTHERS WHICH SHOW ANIMAL ABUSE. THEY MUST BE MADE TO BE RESPONSIBLE / ACCOUNTABLE AND PUNISHED! FOR BEING THE VEHICLE WHICH LETS PERPETRATORS POST THEIR PICTURES/IMAGES/VIDEOS SHOWING ANIMAL ABUSE. THEY MUST NOT ALLOW THESE TO BE PLACED ONLINE...ON THE INTERNET..NOWHERE!!! IF WE ALL INSIST ON THIS, THOSE HORRIFIC VIDEOS WILL BE STOPPED AND THE SICK PEOPLE WHO PRODUCE THEM WILL HAVE NO PLACE TO DISPLAY THEM.
