Signatures Needed To Demand That YouTube Remove Channel Of Couple Who Filmed Themselves Eating Endangered Animals

Here in America, not too many people will recognize the names Ah Lin Tuch and Phoun Raty, but in their homeland of Cambodia, they are making headlines for all the wrong reasons. The husband and wife team have enraged Cambodian citizens after they uploaded videos of themselves eating endangered and protected Cambodian wildlife on YouTube.

Ah Lin Tuch and her husband Phoun created a name for themselves and gained a following online in hopes of making a living from their disgusting clips. To date, they have already made $500 via Google sponsored advertisements.

The couple says they didn’t know the animals were endangered or special, but ignorance is no excuse, especially since their actions could have encouraged others to do the same. One of the most disturbing videos is when they eat a rare fishing cat. In 2010, the cat was listed as endangered and has only recently been uplisted to “vulnerable.”

The couple also filmed themselves skinning, cooking and eating lizards, frogs, and birds, including a large heron.

While the government is investigating the incidents, there is one more way we can make sure Ah Lin Tuch and Phoun Raty’s dreams of making money off animal abuse never come to fruition. We must ask YouTube to ban this couple’s channel from their website and ensure they can never profit again from killing endangered animals.

Please sign this Care2 petition and help make sure Ah Lin Tuch and Phoun Raty’s Youtube channel disappears for good! SIGN HERE!
