Animal crush movies have made their appearance, showing defenseless animals being crushed and killed for viewers’ sick enjoyment. The crush film is the latest in depravity.
Crush films . . . just when you think you’ve seen it all, the human race sinks to deeper levels of depravity and cruelty.
Animal crush movies show small animals such as kittens, puppies and rabbits crushed when someone steps on them. Those perpetrating crush film material are apparently providing these movies to titillate an audience.
Why would anyone watch a gentle animal being killed in an incredibly painful fashion? Who would sell these films?
It comes down to dollars. Those who make animal crush movies hope to profit from people’s curiosity or from people who derive enjoyment from watching animal suffering.
There’s another side to crush movies, one slick marketers utilize to make animal crush video’s saleable. In some crush movies a pornographic element is incorporated, showing sexual acts with the animals prior to their deaths via crushing. Marketers combine the two hoping to deaden compassion by first introducing a sexual element.
In 1999 the U.S. government banned animal crush movies but the law was later overturned under the auspices of free speech. What this means is that crush films are legal and sold to the masses. Should free speech be used as a platform to publish material that is harmful to mental and moral health? That promotes and encourages cruelty to animals? Free speech should not be thinly disguised carte blanch, allowing for profiteering from inhumane practices that cause needless suffering to animals.
What can be done to put an end to crush movies that undermine viewers’ innocence, that harden perception and feed appetites for senseless violence?
The Crush Film–What Can You Do?
- A petition is now being circulated through Facebook. Interested parties can sign the petition to get this practice stopped.
- Those who come across any website promoting or selling crush videos, can post the links to anti-animal cruelty sites, so that these organizations can take appropriate action.
Built on the suffering and death of defenseless animals, crush movies are alive and flourishing.
