Report Internet Animal Abuse

We hear about animal cruelty all the time, but animal cruelty on the Internet? Apparently so. Video postings of bestiality, remote hunting, and blood sport broadcasts.

If you see it, here's what to do.

**Immediately contact the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), a partnership between the FBI and the National White Collar Crime Center, at The website will direct you to the page where you can file your complaint. At first glance, it may appear that the website will only consider complaints of Internet monetary fraud. However, IC3 is the proper venue for all Internet crimes, including animal abuse.
**IC3 can best process your complaint if the information you provide is as detailed and complete as possible. This includes providing the complete URL (website address) for the website that displayed the suspected animal cruelty.
**Even if you are located outside the United States, IC3 will review your report as long as the suspected abuser is located in the United States.

The American Humane Association has more information.
