About Animal Crush Video

For those who do not realize, animal crush video does indeed, exist. The videos generally feature, but do not limit themselves to, small live animals, such as kittens, puppies, mice and bunnies being slowly tortured in the most horrific ways imaginable.

They are burned alive, cut with pruning sheers, nailed to the floor, skinned alive, beaten, stabbed and most often, they have their limbs crushed and broken, just to invoke more screams of agony.

The majority of these videos share a common theme, the animals are incrementally crushed by scantily clad women in high heels. Those who purchase these videos, view them for sexual gratification. Basically speaking, the animal crush interest is an atypical sexual arousal toward the the horrific torture and distress of another life-form. The sick, twisted, prurient animal crush industry has become increasingly popular all over the world. It will continue to escalate the degradation of our society if nothing is done to curtail the sadistic underground industry.

It is not as difficult as one might believe, to find websites that house animal crush video on the internet. Some mask themselves within pornography websites where minors can access these materials with the click of a mouse button. Freedom of speech has its limits when it promotes violent criminal acts and places a society in danger. Please realize that those who are capable of such acts of violent behavior, do not always limit themselves to brutality against animals.

There is nothing socially redeeming about animal crush videos or animal torture videos used for entertainment purposes and the people who produce, buy or distribute them, are simply dangerous. Please read “The Link Between Animal Abuse and Serial Killers” in regard to FBI psychological reports exposing the link between brutality toward animals and humans HERE.

Child pornography is obvious violence against children and it was banned for blatantly promoting heinous, illegal acts. Films that exploit, torture and kill anything for sexual entertainment purposes have absolutely no place in a civilized society. A child can be severely emotionally damaged by these forms of depictions and that can lead to mental disorders or antisocial behavior.

Consider the effect that animal crush video has on both human and nonhuman lives in a society on a global scale. It causes a desensitization toward life, in general and whilst there are many factors that contribute to the generation of the serial killing mind, nearly all serial murderers share a common history of animal abuse, in their youth.

On Thursday, December 9th, 2010, President Obama signed into law, Congressman Elton Gallegly’s initiative to ban animal crush videos in the Unites States of America. Through grass roots efforts, both here and abroad, people united to make a last minute push in order to pressure the United States Senate to pass the Animal Crush Prohibition Act during “Lame Duck” Sessions. This proved to many who had fought for the law, that in unity, we can make a difference.

Now that Animal Crush Prohibition Act is law in the United States, we must turn our attentions globally. It is time that we honor our promise to everyone around the world who supported us during our fight. Stopcrush.org international branches have begun to develop and we need help in every nation. Please visit stopcrush.org to connect with us in the global fight to put an end to animal crush video. We owe you our gratitude.

ashamed to be human, PROUD to be VEGAN !!!

Marci Jacobson says:

I have never heard of this before but I can now see how low humans can go. Thank you for educating me on this issue!

Kate says:

I am speechless about how sick this industry is. I’d never even heard of it until yesterday and I’ve never felt so strongly for a cause such as this. I hope with all my heart that those involved with the industry are brought to justice. Keep fighting!

Rob says:

I agree 100% that these activities are horrific and disturbing, but I think blaming the Internet is wrong and irresponsible.

The Internet is neither good nor bad on it’s own, it depends how we use it. Some incredible things have happened since it’s invention that would never have been possible without it.

Anyone who has done their REAL research knows that child abuse, torture and ritual murder has been going on for thousands of years for the entertainment of society’s elite. Only a fool would deny it.

The point i’m making here is that the Internet is not at fault, society is. We live in a world controlled by unbelievably sick people, and until that changes, i’m afraid this will never completely go away.

Anthony Damiano says:

This isn’t about “blame”, Rob. This is about cutting crush producers off, cutting crush consumers off, which in the end, will save countless lives and stop promoting this sadistic filth.

“damn!!! this has to stop. deffinitly. its gay!! …”

Brooke says:

Ive heard about these videos for a long time! The first time I heard about it I couldnt even describe my horror in words! I just remember stumbling for words and shaking my head the walking away from the computer.

Im gonna make it my mission to get as many people aware of this and stop these videos being made!
I think a lot of people just thought it was just a ‘one of a kind’ video and that was it. I know a lot of people who will be shocked to realise that its still going on!!!

I love the article, however the only addition I do have is that you see our society is in complete decline from whatever angle you look at it. In as much as I support you fully, I do have to say however that you are focusing on a tree and completely missing the whole forest. Cutting down one tree unfortunately won’t solve the complete decline of the moral values in our society. Arguably it could make a significant impact, however eliminating one thing will only create a void in which new morally wrong things develop. Unless the void is filled with something good (not going to get into what that good thing is, that is another topic), something bad will fill it. Much like in a forest, cutting a tree down will not prevent more weeds growing and eventually becoming a very strong thicket. (My name and email is omitted due to spam sorry)…

STOPCRUSH.ORG is an innitiative of AELLA which you will find at http://www.aell.org where we deal with the “rest of the tree”…thank you so much for reading…

CH says:

There are no words strong enough to express my feelings of how sick this is. For those sick sub humans that do this to beautiful animals….there is only one place for these mentally ill people…someone needs to “CRUSH” them or my best hope is that they burn in HELL>

“,’ I am really thankful to this topic because it really gives useful information *`~

I cannot see how these films/videos can be considered as falling under the freedom of speech protection,The torturing and killing of animals of any kind for the sick gratification of these sick sub humans must be stopped , made illegal and punishable by at least 10 years in prison with out parole or early release !!!

Guest says:

I am quite ignorant of this… I had not heard of this type of animal abuse… I never want to see these videos… I am starting to cry just by reading what these DEMONS do to these poor helpless animals… I want to know why… Why is God allowing this to happen… I thought I had seen and heard it all but after this… I was totally wrong. If Obama doesn’t pass this I have lost any little faith that I already had in him. I am wondering if people don’t get ideas from movies bc there is a movie that is called Untraceable… A killer videotapes people he kills and via how many people view the site is how fast they die…however when he started the site it was a kitten… So sad… I love my animals and i live in a pretty good community (knock on wood) but I fear someone taking them… if that ever happened and this was their fate or anything else that was short of a plush home I would go to jail bc they wouldn’t be alive when i found them…

Sarah-Jane says:

THIS IS SICK ! I cant believe peopel actually do this crap it is not right at all! It is cruel sick wrong in so many ways!
All people who get off on this deserve to be thrown away imagine what else could get them excited and aroused or whatever it does for them THEY ARE SICK! Plain and simple!!!

This is a good site ! and I hope yoo pass the bill for it to be stopped! If not then who ever dont let it pass deserves to be thrown away as well !

Daniel Thompson says:

I think that everyone involved in trying to stop this are incredibly kind, thoughtful people. I remember seeing something like this online a few years ago in china though. I was horrified. Ive never felt such sadness inside me and I just wanted to do that torture to the horrible bastards that did that to these innocent animals. There is not reason why this should happen to animals. How would they like it if we did this to their parents? In inexcusable. I pray that this type of animal torture and anyother as well will stop as soon as possible.

Thank you all who is involved in this campaign.

Jessy says:

Pfff… I still can’t believe what people are able to do… All the suffering, all the pain that those creatures have to feel… Those animals love & respect us so unconditionally and all we do is torture them?
People, what is wrong with the world? I sure hope there is something called judgement day…
And for all the persons who hurt animals in one way or another: I hope you return as the animal whom you hurted or killed even… And I hope, there’ll be one sick f*ck doing the same to you…
The animal isn’t the one in the cage, it’s the one in front of it…

Alexandra says:

I feel so helpless and i can only cry when i read and see this… sick sad world… Give me only five minutes with one of those monsters………………………………

Caz says:

I am from South Africa and we don’t have the same legal structure as you guys over in America. It is very very hard to get hold of anyone in the political system.

I wanted to know if anyone has other ideas as to what one can do to stop this sort of disgusting act against animals. I feel that if this stuff were being done to humans there would be a mass outcry and perhaps we should do something similar because people don’t realise that doing this to an animal (or seeing it being done) makes you know better than the average sadist or murderer.

People need to realise that animals are capable of feeling just as much pain as we are and even if it is not some sort of cute animal, that still doesn’t give anyone the right to hurt it.

brittany says:

this is messed up! WHO EVER DID THIS IS SICK!

Emmy says:

We should make a crush video and crush these motherf**ckers for being so horrible :'[ Makes me sick

Joey says:

This really pisses me off. I cant believe people are so selfish and greedy and soulless that they would do shit like this for money and that people actually get enjoyment out of it i mean who the fuck does that seriously those bastards should be shot there the scum of the earth. But unfortunately this happens all the time just follow some of the links below to see for yourself the torture of innocent helpless animals that goes on in this world also i’ll put a few quotes for people to read and think about.

The fact that man knows right from wrong proves his intellectual superiority to the other creatures; but the fact that he can do wrong proves his moral inferiority to any creatures that cannot. ~Mark Twain, What Is Man, 1906

Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight. ~Albert Schweitzer

Life is life – whether in a cat, or dog or man. There is no difference there between a cat or a man. The idea of difference is a human conception for man’s own advantage. ~Sri Aurobindo

Nothing more strongly arouses our disgust than cannibalism, yet we make the same impression on Buddhists and vegetarians, for we feed on babies, though not our own.
–Robert Louis Stevenson

Imagine living in a cage in the dark, unable to move, day after day. The suffering of today’s American farm animals is almost beyond belief. They don’t have a choice, but you do, and their lives depend on it. ~ Casey Affleck

From beasts we scorn as soulless,
In forest, field and den,
The cry goes up to witness
The soullessness of men.
~M. Frida Hartley

admin says:

I would not blame the internet in regard to these cruelties, we can only blame the humans who engage in the act, however, you are not wrong to say that viewing these videos can influence an already damaged mind. The internet has helped us to spread information and educate one another on a global scale. This is necessary for humanity to rise out from the dark ages of its existence.
Only together can we stop crush and only by educating each other can we defeat apathy.
The animals do eventually die in all of these videos. I have not heard of one where the victim lives but they do keep the animal alive for as long as they can. It is horrific.

Nadine says:

I will write a paper letter and call my representatives. This has nothing to do with freedom of speech and the Internet is greatly to blame for the spread of this abomination and others like it. Although I do support freedom of individual expression and enterprise worldwide, in this regard, I advocate much greater regulation online. Any web site that is discovered to be violent and abusive toward any living being, human or animal, should be immediately reported to the FBI or other appointed governmental authority, reviewed and blocked whenever possible, and all access to those sites monitored for exactly who is online and where they are located with legal penalties imposed. An awesome task, certainly, but with our current techynology, it could be done. Keep up the good work!

Denise says:

This is the first time I’ve ever heard about this sick behavior. Just unbelievable!!!!! Animals are God’s creation just like all of us…. Apparently the Supreme Court Justice’s have their heads dug deep down into the sand. I’m posting this site to all my FB friends. I will be writing and calling my legislative representatives. We vote them in, they are accountable to us in advocating for what is right and just!

Orban Cristina Andreea says:

I am devasted when I see an animal being mistreated, much less tortured; I still cannot recover since I saw on TV a cat beaten to death by two teenagers (those images are still haunting me). I am from Romania and, unfortunately, we also do not have proper strict laws concerning animal cruelty.
It is my belief that as long as we allow those kind of “people” to leave after torturing and/or killing an animal, there will be no significant change – it doesn’t matter what’s their age, they are all the same and there is no excuse in the world that could justify what they’re doing. I am truly convinced that there are people who deserve and have to die (the rapists, the torturers/sadists, the serial killers, the pedofiles) – the world will definitely be a better place for us and for the animals!

silvana says:

unfortunately all these evil activities have one thing in common, which helps them exist and grow – the INTERNET. The modern society -worldwide – has become even sicker since the Internet exists. As much as it has proven useful for business, freedom of speech and unlimited communication and information possibilities, the Internet since its existence has provided an audience and a way to express all kinds of human perversion – allowing them to develope to previously unimaginable levels. Many forms of violence would probably not even exist if it wasn’t for internet. I so wish we could go back to a PRE-INTERNET world. but this will never be so the innocent pay the consequences and the price for all this . How can we, the human race, expect pardon from God for all this, is just beyond me.

Jenny says:

The evil of the world is incalcuable. This shows there is really no limit to the depravatiy of mankind. I did not have any idea this kind of sadistic thing existed until hearing a political commentator on Fox News briefly mention something about it; I then did a google search and found your site. Thank you for the information I will be writing my representative. Great effort!

Ingrid says:

This is unthinkable, unimaginable cruelty! How can anyone hurt a baby animal, for entertainment. Its shocking how EVIL the world is becoming. How can I help as a Canadian? Do we know if any of this is taking place hear?

Cat.S says:

I am absolutely heartbroken and disgusted. I am horrified at what some humans are capable of, I highly doubt that the offenders have been abused themselves yet show immense cruelty to these poor helpless animals, why? Is it to get some kind of enjoyment or thrill from these acts of cruelty, or is it simply to show off and look good. Well it doesn’t look good, it’s disgraceful and I wouldn’t even call them animals as animals have beautiful souls, they only kill to eat from hunger or fight for territory, these human are monsters and need to be punished as monsters, not humans, they have lost that right when they committed these sadistic acts of cruelty.

Chloe says:

I want to know what the fuck is wrong with society.. all of these people who find this as a fetish should be skinned alive and stepped on as well. Who the fuck does that? AND WHY ISNT THIS FUCKING ILLEGAL? Good god I wish the human race would just die! Animals would be better off without pathetic disgusting vile repulsive inhuman people, anyway.

sarah. says:

my heart breaks just from that one pcture! ths depresses me. ive had cats in my life since childhood and believe all life is sacride. but because all animals have been given into our care to take care of and love. we should treat them thus.although i am deeply hurt for them they are in a good place now. all i can think is some people never had a chance and dont know why they do it…and that there is another way to release themselves from what they do. And It Doesnt Have To Be Ths!!!! they are innocent balls of life.

Robert says:

This is sick, disturbing and very upsetting. Can not in my wildest imagination understand how anyone thinks this is okay. I’m scared of humanity and what they are capable of. Wish you best of luck in getting this stopped.

Dawn says:

if this was passed in the supreme court, the judge who passed it obviously was on a mission about freedom of speech or indulged in this themselves!!!! this is wrong, plain wrong. infact evil and should NEVER be allowed to happen let alone film, let alone sell and be able to be watched! END IT NOW… its a disgrace!



pippa brannan says:

Evil. This is the first time I heard of it so I am ignorant of this “fetish”.

In describing what “Crushing” is, I do not see anything hinting at the animal’s DEATH. Why is this? I find it hard to believe an animal can be skinned alive, slowly crushed, etcetera, and ALWAYS survive.
Can someone answer this question for me, please?

It seems to me that if the victims of this torture end up DEAD, then would not these films fall under the same ban as “SNUFF MOVIES”?
Also, how can I, as a canadian, help stop crushing?

Maz says:

This is horrible and such a disgrace,it as to STOP RIGHT NOW.It’s sick,how could people do such a thing? These videos are really showing what’s going on out there and if these peoples see their own videos being published,i just hope reason will get through them and they’ll stop.Would you crush your own kids?..so why crushing animals..they’re living things also.

This is absolutely DISGUSTING. Indulging in cruelty and brutality towards small animals such as puppies and kittens is completely unacceptable. It is equal to killing a small human baby, by causing it severe pain and torture. Which HUMAN would do such a thing; much less WATCH it?

Miriam says:

This ,must stop!!!Those sick videos!!!Its abusing the animals right & also the human rights.

I enjoy your article – great effort!
