I logged into Facebook this morning and was scrolling through my newsfeed when I had the unfortunate experience of seeing a video of a girl throwing tiny puppies across a field as far and hard as she could 🙁 the worst part is that I didn’t even click on it, you know how the videos just start playing as you scroll over them now? (Anyone know if there’s a way to turn that feature off?) I was disgusted and outraged and while I know my friend shared it because it upset her and “she wanted authorities to find her” sharing it only promotes it. Anyways I reported it and to my horrifiying surprise it’s totally acceptable on Facebook. This is really upsetting, I know a friend recently posted a tasetful photo of herself breast feeding (a loving, natural act) and fb removed it. What kind of double standard is that?! Anyways I’m mainly venting. If you are unlucky and come across it too, please report it, maybe if enough people do they’ll take that garbage off. I feel sick to my stomach and cannot stop picturing it 🙁

I really hope I don’t see it. I mean, if I can’t do anything about it, it’ll just make me sick and upset.
Any idea where the video took place? What state?

@BurlapnLace: Someone responded with a link but I was afraid to click it. The headline said something about it taking place in Bosnia.

@ImaStarr: Ugh, what kind of SAVAGE does that? And yes, I would like to know how to turn off that video auto-play feature as well. It’s annoying.

I saw that a couple weeks ago. My jaw dropped! I couldn’t believe so many people were reposting that, it was disgusting

I saw something similar, it was a woman in Europe (I think) somewhere throwing puppies into a river. 🙁 She was tried and convicted of animal abuse, it is apparently an old video. 🙁

Oh girl I feel ya. The same thing happened to me… I was just scrolling through my feed and a coworker had posted it 🙁 And the automatic start got me too… couldn’t scroll away quick enough. It was just horrible. I hate seeing crap like that on fb.

I don’t understand why people share these disturbing images and videos. I had a friend this week post images of botched illegal butt injections. Horrifying, and something I did not need to see while scrolling through my newsfeed on my lunch break.

@ImaStarr: Someone posted it on my news feed also and I saw it 🙁 It made me want to throw up.
