I wrote to PETA about that site recently because it Pi$$ed me off that it actually resurfaced. "It takes a village" to stop people like this, so if you have time...kick Scream and Yell about this...but you've got to yell at the right people and PETA supplied that info, too. (cool!) This site will go down.
Here's a copy of what PETA said:
Thank you for contacting us about BonsaiKitten.com. We share your disgust with this disturbing Web site and are extremely concerned about its influence. We have received word that the FBI has decided to investigate this web site. This has come as a direct result of calls and emails that have been flooding their offices. Please let them know that you are concerned as well. You can file a complaint at the following Web site: www.ifccfbi.gov.
This is a reporting centre Web site set up by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) for Internet fraud and other forms of Internet crime.
Although we have found this site to be a "joke," we still feel it is inappropriate and certainly not funny. The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) investigated the origin of the site and found that the name and address under which the site is registered, a "Dr. Michael Wong in New York," is false information. The site was reportedly created by a student at M.I.T. as a joke among friends. When this site initially appeared in 2001, a local humane organization did get involved on a local level in checking out this person but discovered no evidence of actual animal abuse having occurred. We believe that the Web siteâ€™s creator was simply trying to generate attention by upsetting people who care about animals.
So far, it has been an uphill battle, as the only law that even remotely covers issues like this is a law that covers e-mailed obscenities; therefore, if the site is not in violation of the host's user agreement, no law is being violated, and the site can remain up. As you may know, this site has been closed down several times before but continues to reappear with different Web addresses. We are hopeful that with enough complaints filed with the FBI, stressing the influence it may have on cases of actual cruelty, it will be removed permanently.
Thank you again for taking the time to contact us about this issue and for all you do to help animals.
