    Why the hell does Youtube allow such cruel videos like this one:

    YouTube - Red Belly Piranha Eating Mouse

    to be posted, but not videos with a pussy, cock , or even breasts. It's apparently totally OK to show gory, cruel, real violence but not fine to show a boob. This is severely fucked up, and a horrible indictment of our society's values.

    That was truly hideous and disturbing! The person that posted could be briefly heard at the end. I hate that person!

    Part of life though. It is like watching a snake eat a rabbit.

    Was it nasty intent on the posters' part or feeding the fish....I think both...
    and a little idle sick curiosity...

    A rabbit, in the wild, has a fighting chance.

    At least the Youtube kids didn't see a boob, God forbid. That would have truly fucked them up.

    Put a comment that it is animal cruelty and then report (flag) the video. I reported a video that had part of a show, with a website listed that said it had the rest of the show, but when you go to it, it tried to load spyware on your machine. I then got a thank you email from Youtube for reporting it.

    It was prob also the people feeding the fish. Pirahnahs are illegal in most places but I think the people that made this vid got a sick jibe from it.

    Snakes will only eat live animals, so that is not offensive to me, I just would choose not to watch it.

    I understand the circle of life but the maker of this video was just cruel. And I hate mice!

    And really back to rex's question, why does youtube allow this? They should not at all.

    Snakes will eat dead food if they're trained to. Some snakes will never adapt to eating dead, but most will. We did this in the zoo I worked at. It's much safer for the snakes as mice and rats can bite snakes causing them a lot of damage. You basically defrost the frozen mice in hot water, raising them to body temperature and then wiggle them in front of the snake using a grasper or a thermally insulated and armored glove. The snake doesn't know any better and so zooms in for the kill. The few that don't adapt to this process are fed live rats or mice under constant supervision as an unhungry snake will let a rat or mouse run around for hours, possibly biting or gnawing the snake in the process. Very small snakes are fine with worms, very large snakes are fine with a few small rats.

    And yes, we also fed them chicken chicks though none live.

    I don't see the big deal either? I've had cats and dogs and they would attack and kill or eat insects and small birds/mammals and it's part of nature.

    Owning a cat is definitely not for the squeamish.

    It doesn't matter how domesticated you think yours may be...they're killers, and damned efficient ones. And they love to leave their trophies on display, usually right outside your door.

    My cat did that. He'd bring home something, drop it on the doorstep, then meow very loudly until someone came and then he'd proudly start chomping on the head of his victim. He once came home with a rabbit bigger than he was!
