In this thread we will be able to talk about another Petubers flaws. We will started with the basic kit of narcissistic self involved characters such as:

Happy Tails aka Megan Arriola
- The worst hoarding pettuber with over 100 animals.
- Keeps her animals in a small room with way under minimum enclosures.
- Advises not to listen to veterinary advice, like not spaying and neutering rabbits.
- Backyard breeds dogs, purposefully mixed two breeds together and justified it by saying they're designer and "these breeds are really in right now".
- Breeds a potentially harmful gene (merle) into her dogs
- Uses aerosol products and paints her nails in the same room as her birds.
- Feeds her animals mostly fruits and vegetables without proper supplementation.
- Her bird almost died due to poor diet (vet literally put it on seed because it was too thin from bad diet).
- Had her snake and bird out on her body during livestream.
- Some of her cages have exposed wire and splotchy/peeling paint.
- Charges an OUTRAGEOUS amount for 'consultation' when she has 0 credentials and can't even say she does her own research for her own animals.
- Extremely rude to supporters and shuts down every question that she can with a snarky remark.
- Recently put two male mice together, ignores advise and says they'll be fine.

- Mentioned now and again on the TND thread.
- Complains about lolcow and similar sites, describing them as little predators in wait for pet youtubers to slip up.
- Throws a lot of subtle shade at other pet youtubers despite pretending to be 'friends' with them all.
- Moved to America to live with hoarder BYB boyfriend Danny.
- Won't show habitats for most of her and Danny's animals, keeping the exact number of animals a secret. Some examples of enclosures not shown include; Snapping turtle, snakes, and (unseen) monitor lizards.
- Thought she could cycle a fish tank with old water, put two betta together to 'breed' despite clearly knowing nothing about breeding and conditioning the fish.
- Keeps her doves in the bare minimum of cages, also keeps them next to ferrets and has let them land on the ferret cage before.
- Was paid off to set up an awful Bearded dragon enclosure including substrate that can cause impaction.
- Says she isn't planning on getting more animals but has recently taken in a skunk, plans to get another hornbill, plans to get a dog, has got a nano reef tank and two more mystery pets since stating this.
- Has now bought a new Gecko.

Tyler Rugge
- Support TND.
- Hoards animals like most pet youtubers and likes to buy the trending animal of the month.
- Had a betta fish in a fluvial tank but it 'disappeared'. Didn't care what had happened to it.

Brian Barczyk
- Hoards, breed and sell a shit tons of reptiles.
- Keep them on little plastic containers, justifying it with saying 'they like it that way'.
- Inbreeds and shows little concern for genetics outside of producing colour morphs that will sell for $$$.
- Sells bad quality, sick and otherwise ill reptiles.
- Bullies costumers if they dare to call him out for the shitty conditions his animals have when they arrived.
- Both Tyler Rugge and Taylor Nicole Dean have made collabs with him.
- Recently got kicked out of playlist for bringing in a baby gator and snake to scare/prank people with.

Maddie Smith
- Hoards animals like most other youtubers, justifies it by saying all her animals are taken to a vet. Regularly has over 30+ animals, has had over 50+ in the past.
- BYB rats, claims she doesn't any more but still ended up with sick baby rats that had to be treated for URI's and also a rat born with one testicle. Doesn't seem to know much about rat genetics but claims to have worked with breeders.
- Recently got two doves; one got sick and died. She blamed the breeder and 'genetic' illness despite environmental being much more likely. Subsequently she got another bird from a 'better breeder' to replace it, didn't quarantine properly and that bird is now also very sick.
- Is a 'wildlife rehabber'; although is listed as 'social media adviser' on their poorly made site. Charity was also only registered in Ohio in September 2017.

Carolin von Petzholdt
- Keeps parrots. Has actively lost her parrot Hope numerous times on camera.
- Flies her Parrot Hope in public parks around dogs and as such has been chased by dogs and accosted by dog owners more than once.
- Doesn't train her parrot to fly back to her on a signal, merely screams randomly.
- Has had Hope both chase native birds and be chased by native birds during her free flying, resulting in Hope being lost at least twice from this.
- Has sexually molested her bird on camera; doesn't seem to understand that touching a birds vent is frustrating for the animal and essentially bestiality.

Steff J
- Hoards animals worse than some of the above.
- Was gifted two puppies and kept them even though she didn't have the space for them.
- House is literally crammed with animals.
- Killed all her fish once when she flea bombed her house to get rid of the fleas her roaming cats had brought in.
- Lets her turtles breed, found a nest they'd made unsupervised outside with most of the eggs being eaten by ants.
- Recently had one of her tortoises die. Was supposed to nebulize the tortoise every 8 hours, instead said she went to sleep for 21 and 'someone else did it'.
- Let her duck eat Styrofoam while yelling at it from across the room.
- Keeps her turtles in tiny cages.
- Keeps most of her animals in filthy conditions.

At first I thought y'all were reaching when saying these youtubers lurked here, but I'm kind of believing it now. HT kept male geckos (arguably worse than keeping male mice) together for ages and no one threw a fit. She keeps mice, it's posted here, and now there's drama. Same thing with being rude to her fans. HT was always being a bitch to her fans. Only now people are talking about it though.
On the off chance Tyler isn't bringing this up due to HT, then my bad.

No. 605617


obviously they all lurk here, they've commented on the thread before

Her fans are quite literally the most blank minded children I've seen anywhere. It's so humerous. I've even seen them comment on other pettubers videos with correct information about the correct information being wrong because HT said otherwise.

They've brought it up loads before. Tyler and Maddie talked about it constantly on their live streams several weeks ago.

I think she read that people were disappointed she didn’t go harder on Taylor. So nows her time to win over lolcow haters and call out HT. that group all read here it’s so obvious. They’re obsessed with themselves. Tyler and maddie must hate how irrelevant they’ve become on here.

No. 605641


Using drama for views??? Never seen that on the internet before. At least she’s bringing attention to Meghan being irresponsible and putting animals in danger

No. 605642

Her video made a good point… it wasn’t dramatic or anything. Happytails refuses to listen to people when they comment at her, or tweet at her or anything, so maybe a video will finally get her to pull her head out of her ass. Happytails needs a serious wake up call

No. 605643

Hi pickles & friend

No. 605644

I’m seriously confused… isn’t it good that she publicly called out happy tails on her bullshit?

If it’s not then please inform me… but I literally cannot understand how calling out horrible pet care is a bad thing…?

No. 605647

replied to both because you're the same person (hi pickles)

The issue with making a video on it for pickles specifically is that she(he?) doesn't have mice. How can she(he?) have taken time to research, make, edit and upload a video in the space of a few hours? Research is the most important part if you're going to be calling somebody out for something. She's(he's?) using authority as a point in her (him?)arguments rather thank facts.

No. 605649

lmao i love that some of you constantly think that they're posting here
i'm just concerned about animal care and some of you anons want to encourage the behavior that pickles did and now tearing it down for other reasons
do you want these people to change or just want more reasons to bitch about things
if pickles is reading this good for you for calling out HT on her bullshit

No. 605651

It doesn't take a genius to know male mice shouldn't be kept together. Most people who know anything about small animals know that putting two males in the same cage is incorrect.

No. 605655

Jesus Christ you don’t need to be a fucking vet to know male mice don’t live together. I’ve never owned mice in my life, but I’m not an idiot and I know males will kill each other.

No. 605657

Good lord someone’s dense. No, pickles doesn’t own mice, but looks like she even knows more about mice than happytails does considering HT thinks it’s okay to keep males together, and pickles knows it’s not.

I still see her twitter, it's just @meghan_arriola, not with mj in front of it. I guess she consolidated. She doesn't use twitter much anyways.
She used to charge $175 for nutrition when she doesn't even give her own pets a correct diet. Pic related was grabbed from her blog but mysteriously taken down a few days after it was posted here

No. 605706

hey anon, i'm skeptical of this shit too. we always talk about how no one calls out taylor, and then suddenly there are three people WKing for all of them? coincidentally the same day that every pet tuber has decided to talk about the same things we've been talking about here?

listen, if you're going to post multiple comments in a row to pretend you're multiple people, at least space the timing out to make yourself less obvious.

No. 605834

I find it funny we didn’t have a single peep out of the pettubers when Taylor impulse bought a freaking monitor, had it for a whole month without knowing exactly what it was. But put two freaking male mice together and the whole of pettube implodes.
If you’re going to call out one for shitty practices, call them all out, but oh no, Taylor has a million subs, they don’t want their reputation ruined by that. Hypocrites.

No. 605868

Petubers are basically those cool high school girls that will constantly bitch about each other to others but will never say anything to anyone else, or if they do it will be a shady remark.

They're all as bad as each other when it comes to this and I'm pretty sure that some of them comment here (and possibly on Taylor's thread) constantly.

And she charges for consulatations…not consultations. Anyone know what a consulatation is? Advice from a doesn’t know shit quack?

They all comment here, check the grammar of some of the posts.
Someone is addicted to using `…` If I had to guess it's a pet tuber, wouldn't be hard to look on twitter and figure it out.

No. 605891


Its because happytails spreading shit like "male mice can get along just fine! they're social and need to be together" is harmful to youtubers that do have mice like Erin that will no doubt have to deal with cross-over fans from Happytails telling her that shes wrong by keeping it alone

Even pettubers I’ve never heard of (not into rodents personally) everyone’s chipping in.

No. 605896


It’s a completely different situation because Taylor already got a ton of criticism and admitted to making a mistake and said it wasn’t smart of her. Happy tails gets tons of criticism and can’t seem to get it thru her pea brain that she’s wrong and so she continues to spread harmful care advice. I can see why pettubers feel the need to chip in about happy tails

No. 605903

What planet are you on? Or are you doing the same drugs Taylor is. She certainly NEVER admits to being wrong, she just blamed the store and continually concocts stories. Tons of people did go after her about the monitor species AND the fact that it is wild caught, even tho she still says it is CB.

No. 605906

exactly Taylor is just awful

No. 605986

Not defending them or Taylor or anything, because the monitor situation was fucked and I wish more people talked about it, but it’s possible they talked to her privately. They said some people tried to talk to Meghan, but she doesn’t fucking listen so going public about it was the only way to bring attention to the issue. I’m hoping that’s what happened, but honestly probably didn’t.

I feel like the mouse situation is getting more attention because 1. Everyone already knows happytails is the biggest idiot in the community, and 2. It’s common sense to not keep 2 males together. Everyone knows that, but not everyone knows about monitors and their care

If the monitor situation happened to Meghan and not Taylor, we all know Meghan would just be going around continuing to say that it’s a black throat monitor because she’s the “expert” and she knows better than everyone else. Which is honestly hilarious to think about if you ask me

No. 606035

I feel like they call out HT cause she isn't in the friend group, but don't call out TND (or any of them really) cause she is in and they all just kiss each others ass.

No. 606039

Like look at the Brian taking animals to playlist situation. He was called out for it but TND did the same thing. And instead of saying yeah that was wrong too Em just said oh she was young.

Brian asked Playlist to bring animals and they said no and he did it anyway. Vidcon didn’t care that Taylor brought animals. Plus Brian was running around scaring people with them.

Not saying it’s smart to bring animals to a big event like that, but the situations are different and Brian really should know better he’s a grown man who’s just doing crazy shit for attention

No. 606188

Tyler is just head of the bitchy pettubers he basically a girl. Em has more subs than him like Taylor does, hence not calling her out.
And “well said” hahaaaa they probably had a group chat about this before posting. I feel pickles is just easy to manipulate, so they get her to do the video, she’s just so eager to be part of the group. If she’s going to publicly sham HT call out others.

Oh yeah she does not fit into their group aesthetic at all, but then neither does the other one who's kinda old.

True think about it, the more people they have on their side, in their friend group, the less likely they’re going to be called out by other youtubers. Because their friends won’t call them out and if anyone else does they’ll be shunned. Very tactical Tyler and his little harem

They seem to be befriending some other smaller YouTubers like Emma and another one who seems to be gathering a lot of animals at a similar rate and pattern too so this would make sense

This chick, fairly new channel but there seems to be a lot popping up lately. Emma did a collab with her a couple weeks ago so i checked her out. Her videos are either getting a new pet, or super confusing updates of no longer having a certain pet anymore, this pic she gets a mantis and then shits out a care guide the same day which is great, these petubers can say they don't influence this behavior all they like, but the 'must have lots of animals to succeed' mentality is super strong

No. 606275

Sitting on the fence shouldn’t be allowed on YT. EmZotic should use her platform to call out Taylor. But she won’t She won’t call out anyone because she’s either playing chess and wants to look nice when she’s probably the biggest b**ch, or maybe because she’s older she just doesn’t care abt the drama.

No. 606281

yea i find em quite insincere.

1 minute in - says she just got 3 new pets
1:27 in - says she rehomed her pacman frog because she 'just didn't feel it was the right pet for her' 2 or so months after she got it (see left video)

Why in the past few days have there been people (or a person) who keep white knighting HT? It’s not an anon’s responsibility to comb through all of HT’s videos and give you a list of all of the horrible care she gives. She houses two male mice together, and two male cresteds together, keeps two guinea hens in an abismally small coup, backyard breeds, that picture of the bunny’s water someone posted recently, just to name a few things. This isn’t nearly everything she does wrong, just some of the stuff that’s been discussed recently. If you watch her animal room tour there is a whole lot more that’s wrong. Idk if HT stans have caught wind of this thread or whatever, but defending HT is laughable imo.

It's mostly on her youtube videos, her instagram is better thought out in terms of what she shows to the public. Pic related is all from her Pet Room Tour, I only picked out what is objectively bad and not just arguable things.
From top right to left
>far too small and far too dirty for any bird
>way too small for a chinchilla that isn't having many hours of floor space
>very dirty and simply dilapidated cage, also pretty small but can't be seen from pic
>Tank is way over-stocked, seems like she may have fell for the 1 inch per gallon meme
>her hedgehog cage is in an area where it can be very hot, often disruptive, they shouldn't be in tanks due to poor aeration and on top of that it's on the small side
>the gecko cage houses two males together and it looks like there is shit all over the walls
>that shitty pet store bird cage is housing 3 budgies when it shouldn't house one
>that shitty pet store guinea pig cage is housing two guinea pigs when it shouldn't house one unless those piggies spend most of their day with floor time and only sleep in there
The last picture is just a still of one side of her room. I want to say all of her animals that aren't outdoors only or free roaming are in that one room, but I'm not entirely sure.

do you not remember cataleah being all up in the last thread? I'm too lazy to dig back, but in a nut shell the mean girls of pettube told cataleah she wasnt invited to the meet up because of her collab with HT.
and leopard gecko mentioned she feels invisible to most other pettubers, despite being one of the oldest pet youtubers. so she's not exactly being welcomed by them
Dat enough proof for you, sherlock? Or are you going to just keep white knighting and demanding "proof?"

No. 606462

Boohoo for not feeling welcome!? The biggest pettubers interact every day. Tyler has been talking to Taylor from the beginning even if he does copy her they’re probably actually friends and Tyler and Maddie are obviously real friends and probably then Maddie is friends with Taylor by default and Em isn’t a threat to any other pet tuber because she’s basically chill with everyone and sort of in the click but not clicky, and the smaller pet tubers are all making and effort with each other and the big pet tubers. Why would leopard gecko feel she’s entitled to attention when she doesn’t talk to anyone?

I think a lot of that crap is vet fearmongering tbh, I had rabbits when I was younger and we never had to take them to the vets. The only thing I think I remember was a big problem you should try to avoid was myxomatosis.

No. 606673

myxomatosis is now (has possibly always been, idk) a vaccination prevention along with parasite treatment. So the person would have to take them to vets for that.

Most animals can live without vet treatment, yes. But with larger mammals like rabbits you're pretty much playing a risky game.

No. 606675

And my rabbits have needed vet care multiple times. Just because your rabbits didn’t, doesn’t mean others won’t. And just because mine did, doesn’t mean others will.

We simply cannot base weather or not an animal should go to the vet, because of 1 (or even a few) peoples experiences.

You have to look at it as a whole. OVERALL, it is much safer to fix your rabbits. It’s much safer to take them to the vet if something’s up.

7-9 years is not long, 9 is average. you just got lucky, and yes a comparison to dogs is relevant bc if someone never brought their dog to the vet people would consider it a v bad idea, a rabbit is no different and never bringing 9 rabbits to a professional to be 100% sure of their health is crazy. theyre prey animals do they mask any potential injuries/illnesses/pain really well, the average person cant tell theyre unwell unless theyre in a p bad state. please just take care of ur animals man lmao i hate derailing but that stressed me.

She loses Hope at the end of the other video too. She says he's been missing / flying out of sight for 20 min or so.

Like ????

Sure fly your bird, but do it safely, loosing sight of them for that period of time is not safe. She's constantly losing her bird, has no regular recall (has only just started using that whistle). She flies her birds in dangerous places, she's had them loose in the car before /while/ she was driving. She's a terrible example of an owner.

Worst of all, recently she seems to enjoy sending Hope off to harass the native birds. There's one video where a flock is roosting (dusk) and she sends Hope off to go fly into them all and make them fly (en mass) away. She constantly makes jokes when Hope flies off to attack the native birds. I wouldn't be surprised if Hope harassed the Hawk first making it attack, because that's what it's been conditioned to do. A large bird like a Macaw isn't usually a target for a bird of prey that's roughly the same size, too much risk there for the predator.

With all her screaming and harassing the native wildlife, I'd be so pissed if I lived near that park.

More likely mobbing it because it's in their territory / near nesting sites. A macaw is a huge bird, a hawk wouldn't take it on seriously unless it really had to. Crows are much more likely to gang up and mob Hope.

But then of course she encourages Hope to go after wild birds…

So Hope gets mobbed regularly because she flys him near all their nesting sites.

Anyone have a lot of farm/game birds that can comment on this? I've only ever had maybe 2 dozen chickens & geese at a time and in an enclosed area. But it seems to me that for animals that she even says are free roaming, that is a fuck ton of feathers around in a small area. I'm just confused because if it was a sheer amount of bird issue, wouldn't the area be all dirt like in her videos from constant treading?

I honest to god don't understand how she does it. She plays videogames 2 hours a night roughly every day or every other day that she streams. She either was awake and up with her animals or screwing around on the computer in the early (2am) morning posting shit on instagram. She supposedly has a job, her husband has a full time job. She literally has 200 animals, 1/4 of which requires a substantial amount of daily interaction. I've worked on a rehab facility before; All the animals got as little interaction as possible because they were wild. It would still take me from morning to sunset to clean half the enclosures and feed, and there were only about 20ish enclosures to worry about. It is physically impossible for her to be giving her animals the bare minimum care, let alone keep an eye on them to make sure they are acting alright and are healthy

She's said that she doesn't want anymore rats. In that case she'd be better off rehoming stella to someone else with rats but she won't because shes a hoarder

No. 607687

In normal circumstances a lone very old rat can be unavoidable. Many people will not be willing to rehome their 2.5-3 year old animal that they care about and only likely has a few months left. Many people will also not want to get more rats even if they have done in the past.

That said…

A lone rat is a lot more work to take care of, they need constant attention, a heat mat/heat pad (old rats lose heat quickly as they tend to have less fat), they might need assistance keeping themselves clean (not only fur, but making sure they don't get UTI's if they're male by removing plugs etc), they also will need much more mental stimulation in and outside of the cage to stop them from getting depressed.

There are so many more reasons I've not listed too, which is why younger rats should never be kept alone (or even older, if you are prepared to take care of more rats in the future).

However I doubt Meghan is doing even 1% of the required care for her lone older rat. Rats are great pets, but they're time consuming, more so when you only have one.

She has so many animals, there's just no way.

The one time you want her to get more pets and she doesn't lol. She re-homed her elderly lone ferret because it was too much work, so why isn't she doing that with her remaining rat? I'd argue that lone rats need even more attention than lone ferrets, and it's obvious she isn't giving the rat enough attention or else she'd be posting it constantly.

No. 607709

Yeah, it's clear she has little to no attachment to her animals. While, as listed above, I can understand that a solo old rat is a fact of life for a lot of people; she should 100% rehome hers. There's no way she puts in the work a solo rat involves.

Also, just realised that's her current rat in that photo and not the one that passed away. Stella looks sick. Rats fur shouldn't be fluffed up like that; they often fluff themselves up when they're not feeling well.

Uh I see, thanks for explaining, though she does take in rescues. So many people sadly get gliders then realise how hard to care for they are.

You absolutely can BYB mice and rats. Rats especially might not have the protection other animals do because they're classed as 'vermin' but they're highly intelligent animals that benefit massively from registered breeders trying to reduce the instances of cancer, mammary tumours, URIs, high white, and other genetic defects present in their lines due to the initial bottleneck they went through when being domesticated. BYB undoes all of those efforts and you end up with rats that have poor lifespan expectancies and suffer from complications and illnesses over the years.

Same anon; to clarify, she was breeding for pets, not feeders.

No. 608201

i creep on their livestreams pretty frequently and when she was being talked about here she said that a few of her rats had survived a fire and had weakened immune systems so i guess one of those got something and passed it on to the young ones (there more susceptible to Ri)

No. 608202

Precisely. Tumours are soooooo common with rats, and that’s accelerated with poor breeding.

And yea the way they talk on twitter, etc looks the same as here, I notice whenever anything comes up about Tyler or maddie it’s suddenly turned back round to HT almost instantly which is very suspicious.

No. 608206

No. 608209

she came on here herself and said that she worked with other breeders to develop her lines. my guess is she probably knows a bit. the breeder registries for mice and rats are actually sort of trash since you pay a small fee and click a accept to terms and your in

yea from their live streams they seem to read here a lot, 100% comment on here too making themselves look good when in reality they’re kind of shitty too.

No. 608219

The AFRMA is like that yes, but there's some legitimacy in being willing to pay that fee. Many BYB won't.

I also don't believe her claims about working with a breeder, it was only claimed after folks pointed it out here. Didn't she also get those rats from a pet shop, not another breeder, so she can't have known their genetic history before breeding them (something that is very important). One of her rats was born with one testicle for Christ's sake… but yeah, this discussion has already been hashed out previously.

I'm glad her baby rats got vet care, but really that's a very low bar to meet, they shouldn't have been sick in the first place, babies should never get so sick with URI's weeks into their lives unless something is wrong with their care or breeding.

She’s one of those people who have to say something which I kind of respect but they know that so they’ll almost encourage her to do it. And if shit hit the fan she’d have to deal with it and they’d disassociate themselves form her in a heartbeat

No. 608226

It's funny but she's literally only listed as social media adviser or something, on their site too. Have they actually done any significant charity work (I know Maddie herself fostered some squirrel babies)? They're listed as a NFP but their website isn't regularly updated.

Again, absolutely. Which is why when shit is hitting the fan with HappyTails on twitter, she's the one 'fighting the fight' alone.

Her excuse for keeping male mice together is that she has support? And that Tyler called her a cunt? What kind of nonsense does this woman think she’s spouting and how does it have anything to do with her shit husbandry?

No. 608234

Agreed, many people who find injured animals have no experience and nowhere to turn other than google. So these places do end up taking in wild animals, and of course it is legal (at least as far as I am aware in the US, it is in my country), to rehabilitate (certain) wild animals so long as you don't plan to keep them.

All of that says nothing for their experience though… anyone can start a NFP, if you're a vet, you're going to have some good knowledge and be able to help animals folks bring you… if you're Joe Blogs from down the road, you can do your best but you're little better than the person who found the animal in the first place.

In Maddies case though, it means she gets to have 'cute' baby squirrels…

No. 608235

Yea think of the likes and views ‘meet my baby squirrel’ I almost think she does this because it means she gets more animals to show off. Anytime you hear her say ‘adopt don’t shop’ just remind her of her BYB rats.

No. 608246

I just checked and the website: https://www.naturenurses.org/what-is-a-nature-nurse hasn't been updated since I first found it months ago. So I do wonder how much work their 'charity' does. I hope auditing in the US is good because they want donations both monthy/weekly and/or sponsorships for animals that are likely no longer in their care due to it being outdated.

Also Maddie doesn't appear to have fostered any more animals since the squirrels… which is good at least… baby animals might be good for views, but they're so fragile, they need to be placed with people with real experience and real time in their field… not a pettuber who wants attention and to lord them around on camera.

They use body cam footage, aren't stressing out the animals for views, are knowledgeable, educational, provide immediate vet care and continued vet care and release animals as soon as they can.

So you’re saying she’s telling people they can buy from good breeders? Then what’s her issue with HT breeding her own dogs for her and her family? They were all health checked etc. Complete hypocrite. They said there are dogs in shelters need adopted, not more being bred, and yet she says to buy from a breeder?! They don’t have a leg to stand on.

No. 608649

Happy tails bred a mixed dog, she bred potentially harmful genetics, I have yet to hear what lines her dogs even came from (assuming she even knows. No one knows if they have any pedigree.), and bred not to better a breed or even create a breed or a new dog for a specific reason but literally just to create more animals, that is it. I can look past breeding mutts, having less than stellar lines, fuck I'll even look past breeding harmful genes if they were attempting to breed a better dog and some things slipped through their sight. But when it comes down to it, HT's reasons for breeding is selfish; literally just to create more animals. To me, that is the definition of BYB
Not saying the others are any better, I think they are shit too and are pretty damn childish. But HT is not under any circumstances what I would call a reputable breeder.

Also, I thought HT was getting rid of most of her corgis? Aren't they like 6 months old now?

No. 608662

you clearly havent watched her videos. they were all health checked and bought from decent breeders. breeding outside of a breed is actually healthier genetically. Pure breds are inbred a lot, for example the boxer dogs gene pull is so small they have serious health issues. i've only ever had mutts (granted they were adopted), but they have all been super healthy, and didn't have common problems associated to certain breeds. she only kept 3, sadly one died, which regardless of what we think of her, losing a pet is horrible, it was supected by the vet that she was poisoned sadly. but it seems a lot of people comment on this dog situation through hearsay rather than actually watching her videos, not WK, just if you're going to critic someone do it on facts first.

No. 608666

Jesus Meghan get a life and stop reading/posting here. Don’t you have hundreds of animals to provide substandard care for?

No. 608676

Breeding outside of a breed is only healthy if you know their lines. The 'mutts are healthy' meme is only true if both parents were healthy. If you have two mutts that both carry the same genetic issues, you're at the same place you were with poorly bred purebred dogs. Considering her dogs were all corgis that share many of the same genetic health problems and she doesn't share what lines they come from it's not a guarantee that they will be healthier. We are taking it at face value that she got her dogs health tested; I only ever heard her say 'health check' and 'hips checked' from her blog, but there is more to genetic health of corgis than their hips. It also doesn't help if she doesn't know the lines of both grandparents, because although her dogs may not have the phenotype they may still carry harmful genes that can pass on to the offspring. A single health check once in an animal's life also isn't a guarantee that they will always be healthy; they may be healthy now but ideally you should be doing yearly health checks on things like structure, hearing, eyesight etc because the vast majority of poorly bred dogs don't show genetic health issues before at least 3-5 years of age. She already had her dogs get parvo, one which died from it, after criticizing vets for recommending people socialize puppies due to parvo, she doesn't even follow her own advice which is beyond hypocritical. She also bred an objectively dangerous gene because it looked pretty, which is a super shitty thing to do to any dog. Don't tell me I don't know what I'm talking about, I know more about genetics than you think.
If meg did any amount of research she would have picked up on these things. But she didn't.

but for real does it actually matter? People breed dogs all the time. Why do people care soooooo much.

Like if you look at YouTube in general a lot of people do it. If you look at the world around you a fuck ton of people do it. If she continued to breed her dogs for profit then I’d agree she’s BYB.

This isn't about 'tearing down other females'; that's an excuse used to avoid accountability. I'm not going to avoid commenting on someone just because they're female.

Brian Barczyk is literally the most cuntish asshole aho profits from dead and dying animals and has numberous sexual misconducts against him from female employees. He has thousands of hoarded animals and genuinely doesn’t give a shot about their care. His own wife can’t even tell if a skink is alive of dead and he snuck an alligator into Playlist.

That's why breeders are making an effort to breed for health rather than features. People are waking up that these dogs aren't healthy, and they may not be wiped out in species but can be changed for the healthier.

It's as simple as that, and most of that demand will often be met by BYB rather than kennel breeders who often ask for staggering prices due to history of parents. While I cannot comment how good those breeders are in terms of health, they know more about what they're doing than an average BYB

Fuck off then, we're not here to serve you. Hell read the fucking intro:

- Mentioned now and again on the TND thread.
- Complains about lolcow and similar sites, describing them as little predators in wait for pet youtubers to slip up.
- Throws a lot of subtle shade at other pet youtubers despite pretending to be 'friends' with them all.
- Moved to America to live with hoarder BYB boyfriend Danny.
- Won't show habitats for most of her and Danny's animals, keeping the exact number of animals a secret. Some examples of enclosures not shown include; Snapping turtle, snakes, and (unseen) monitor lizards.
- Thought she could cycle a fish tank with old water, put two betta together to 'breed' despite clearly knowing nothing about breeding and conditioning the fish.
- Keeps her doves in the bare minimum of cages, also keeps them next to ferrets and has let them land on the ferret cage before.
- Was paid off to set up an awful Bearded dragon enclosure including substrate that can cause impaction.
- Says she isn't planning on getting more animals but has recently taken in a skunk, plans to get another hornbill, plans to get a dog, has got a nano reef tank and two more mystery pets since stating this.
- Has now bought a new Gecko.

This cunt needs a thread of his own. Check his reticulated Python video in his insta - literally sells them as ‘Man eaters’.
He breeds all kinds of Exotics like monkeys and reptiles and yet he’s always travelling (so who looks after them??) and is basically trying to be a model but uses animals to sell his body to make it more interesting. 1M followers and a Youtube channel called The Real Tarzan. Even the name makes me want to die

No. 608813

Also she didn't apologise, her apology was 'I was breeding them'. Which is an excuse not an apology, and anyone who knows anything about beta fish knows that you literally /can't/ breed them like that. That throwing them unconditioned in together is literally just going to get one fish killed.

This is why this thread is shit. I literally showed someone who is exploiting animals without shame (more exMples below) and yall still only want to bitch about the girls. And FYI pickles don’t look like a boy and fuck off is em anywhere near fat.

Footlocker paid for this Tarzan to aggravate this snake???
And why the fuck does he let his barber cut his hair with a razor while a snake is in around his neck??

None of yAll are going to even care about this but imagine if it was taylor or em or anyone else. You’d be slut shaming.

No. 608846

You know I think it's pretty funny that people complain we only talk about certain pettubers.

A lot of the people here are ex-fans/ex-watchers, this board is majority female, so of course most of the people talked about are going to be female too not some dudebro who thinks he's hard, holding endangered species. It's almost taken for granted that that shit's wrong… same as the Saudi princes and their pet cheetahs.

There are also a lot of animal channels on youtube.. not all of them fall under pettube. Pettube usually refers to those keeping lots of animals at /home/. So BYB operations like Brian only sometimes are talked about, again because they're universally considered awful. It's like saying the sky is blue… yeah, we fucking know.


As far as this… you're a moron, you want to carry the discussion, how about doing it when another isn't taking place to distract? Yeah that person is a POS but wtf 'pickles doesn't look like a boy, em isn't fat'; that shit got shut down or are you blind?


Calling out shit petcare, isn't slut shaming. You're just full on trolling now.

Silent reader here. There is one thing I noticed that bugs me. Emma keeps her dwarf rabbits in a 4x4 pen. Tyler keeps his FLEMISH GIANT in a 4x4 pen. And yet I’ve need emma get shit multiple times, and Tyler’s never been brought up.

The minimum for 2 dwarfs is 4x4, but then the minimum for a Flemish giant is like 4x8. So while Emma is just meeting the bare minimum, Tyler’s cage is only half the minimum. Emma’s cages also have toys and hides in them, last time Tyler shoed his cage it was just a litter box, and one toy.

Not trying to defend Emma here, but I don’t understand why she gets crap for it, and Tyler gets none even though his cage is far below the minimum

One question though, why wasn't this brought up when folks asked if there was anything wrong with Tylers care (back in the first thread or maybe the second)? We just got a load of stans in here saying he was perfect. Idk about rabbits and I don't watch Tyler, this would have been useful to know.

I've discussed AntsCanada (who is really smart about what he shares and is basically silent on social media) and actually learned about Brian from here. They don't post as much stupid shit as Tyler, TND, Em, HT etc, otherwise there would be more milk. If TND slowed down on posting shit to social media her thread would slow down too, people won't have shit to talk about and the thread would die. HT has been a retard on social media lately, therefore she's getting the most attention here. It's not a difficult concept to follow. Obv the people here bitching that it's only females have only read the HT part of this particular thread, because even earlier on ITT Tyler was getting shat on. Really makes me think where this influx of users came from as soon as HT became the center of attention.
I don't follow Brian, if you want people to talk about it you need to post it. That simple. You're bitching about people not doing something you're not willing to do.
The only time Pickles is relevant is when she's doing a video about someone else… And she's generally so spineless that even then the video is a disappointment
Where does he live? Just wondering because a lot of monkeys require permits… I bet he has no permits for em. No one here knows him tho because he's a model/breeder first, and not a pettuber
This, I only ever brought up AntsCanada because I used to like his channel.

Yes definitely head of the mean girls group.

Plus it's more than just animal abuse with HT. The way she treats other people is the part that actually bothers me the most.

She even said she wants to make one of her "designer" corgis her new service dog. God forbid that an unrecognizable breed would be the one helping with your fake mental illness.

No. 609052

No. 609175

Did you not read my comment? Service dogs are usually rescues so wanting her corgi Bruce to be her next service dog and replace her other one is offensive. You’re almost as illiterate as she is. Also I’m sure she does have a mental illness but it’s clearly axis 2 and no amount of bringing your hoarded animals to the grocery store is going to fix that.

No real service dog comes from BYB. If she means 'emotional support animals', well yeah, they're BS and can come from anywhere.

Most service dogs (seeing eye dogs etc) are bred by organisations or by private breeders for those organisations. They're heavily screened and many don't make it even to the training programme.

In my country, you can foster service dogs til they're ready to be screened for temperament and further training.

Happy Tails dogs will never be service animals.

How do you direct mods to a whole thread an not a single post? Because mods need to come and prune a lot of this thread.
If y'all are pissed no one is talking about x, y and z, then post pictures and videos and explain what they are doing is wrong. I was pissed no one was talking about HT so I started posting milk from her insta when she did dumb shit. I must post like 80% of her instagram pics. Guess what happened? People started realizing how awful she is. If you want people to go after someone else, you have to keep posting dumb shit they do and say. A single screencap of their instagram profile or mentioning something they did weeks ago once isn't going to get the ball rolling.

Anyway, I think the cockateil is over the guinea pig cage in this picture but I'm not sure because her guinea pigs are kept in one of those store bought cages and used as a table in the middle of the room, anyone know whose cage this may be?

No. 610614

Your wrong. Keeping them in small tanks will stunt their growth/slow their growth due to water quality issues. You should aim for a 30g.

I have nano (fresh water) tanks and they're also a huge pain to keep balanced (planted at that size imho is a must to help), swings in water quality are huge. Bigger tanks guard against this.

5g for a Betta is also a minimum imho. They really do better in 8-10g. Their habitats in the wild go on for miles sometimes. Males establish a 1 metre sq patch as their own when looking to breed. It's a myth that they're happy in small spaces. Even long fin varieties benefit from larger tanks, improving their muscles and strength and as such making them live a healthier and longer life.

Yes! I was interested in breeding betta fish with metallic scales because they’re unique. I did my homework and went through the entire courtship process. The female belongs to my sister. They did not live together beyond that.

It doesn't go well when idiot pettubers try to justify substandard care. People are generally helpful when pettubers try to take advice on board… although it should be a given that DOING YOU OWN RESEARCH BEFORE BUYING A PET IS IMPORTANT. We are not here to do that work for you.

But there is no bubble nest and the female doesn't look gravid (so the fish weren't conditioned). They also look pretty young.

Sage for no new milk, this is old as sin. Just found out though that exactly what I was worried about happening, happened. One of her merle coris grew into a hidden merle. For anyone interested, it means that even a responsible breeder not interested in breeding a merle or two merles may mistakenly breed the dog to get double merles. Double merles are commonly born blind and/or deaf, or even stillborn.
I wonder what she's going to say when she accidentally loses and kills her bird? It's pretty obvious at this point she's doing these dangerous stunts for videos. At least she is getting some backlash in the comments though. Second comment in is calling her out on putting her bird in danger multiple times a week.

I do not. I’ve talked about this in a video before. Those clowns were moved to a 60 gallon aquarium with a lionfish. It was my favorite tank I ever had. Unfortunately it crashed. I went back to a nano with two clowns because that’s what I feel confident keeping healthy right now.

No. 610665

One person called you a bitch, no one else called you names. I never got into the youtube biz because I had thin skin but holy hell, I guess that's a non-issue for e-celebs. Basically just do an insane amount of research before doing anything, and if you read something or hear about something from one source, try to find at least one other credible source that backs it up. If you lurk here and see people are bitching about a type of care, look into it. Do research. For example, if you see someone bitching about you free-fly parrots, look into the cons of it and see why someone would think it's bad. Or if someone is talking about how shitty it is to breed merles into dogs, look into the controversy of merle breeding. Don't just stay in an echo chamber, read things that you may not know or disagree with but with an open mind to understand why people come here and complain. Honestly no pettuber needs to announce themselves here to figure out why people are bitching, they just need to read the comments and do some research.

No. 610671

Its beyond me how people seem to do so little research and get a pet. Like fuck me, you're also showing this to the public who will probably call you the fuck out on it. Even now, it seems to be excuses and 'oh yeah..' rather than 'you know what I was wrong' like most other pet tubers that have been here and went into rants about us having to practically do the research for them.

If you cant research your animals before getting them then don't get them. It's unlikely you have the interest in that animal and therefore the commitment to care for them for 2-20 years.
It also really doesn't look good when pet tubers come here and seriously seem to lack basic knowledge from googling a few care sheets. Pretty much everyone (even fucking Taylor) googles a care sheet when they get animals impulsively.

No. 610672

You bought a sickly looking goldfish from a petstore. You put the goldfish in a tank that looks to be 20g at most (Ok fine for a hospital tank, but if you can't upgrade your other animals tanks to much lager ones, why should we believe this goldfish is going to get an appropriate sized tank, it was an impulse buy after all).

Why would you support a store that sells sick pets?

Yes it's sad when you look at them, but that's why you /don't/ buy them, so you don't support that. You could have also let the store staff know (if it was a good store) so they could treat it.

How do you have a tank crash like that though? Unless it was a power failure (which happens you know not much to be done or said), it's a bit odd.

No. 610694

Only ways I can guess are:

-Heater malfunction (not your fault, she would have likely mentioned)
-Poisoning (as with Steff, flea bombing would do it)
-Ammonia spike (poorly managed… like really poorly managed for that size, probably the lion fish dying and being left to rot… or any/all plants dying en masse).

No. 610696

Ich would probably do it too.

No. 610697

I guess I see 'crash' as useful filter bacteria die off causing bacterial bloom in the water column and ammonia spike.

But yeah disease could kill fish… not sure why that would make her want to reduce tank size though.

No. 610698

crash is usually an ammonia spike, but when lionfish die they poison the water so it is likely that.

No. 610701

Certainly odd she didn't specify what happened as it seems like an important reason to reducing the tank size. At that point I agree that it was her fault and probably and ammonia spike.

I keep nano tanks. Big tanks are 1000% easier to keep than small ones. This isn't just opinion, it's fact, it's consensus in the fish keeping community. Water changes take longer, but that's literally the only thing that's more of a pain.

- Provide animals with proper care

But that's too hard for them.

It's also ironic that pettuber said watch and never reply. There're always fucking on here replying.. stanning for themselves, bitching about other pettubers. They're all a bunch of backstabbers that don't really give a shit about animals, they just want to use them to get views/famous.

Not to drag the mouse thing out still but happytails is still being a dumb bitch.

You'd think for a 'expert' she would stop comparing mice to other animals, especially rats, when rats live in colonies of mixed sex in the wild, and mice live and defend their territories against other males. I'm embarrassed for her

No. 610779

Lol what… male rats can and do live in the wild together. Unaltered males in captivity can (but not always) become hormonal and fight more; but in the wild they can actually get away from each other too, so fights aren't common unless they're forced to fight for space/resources (thanks to humans).

Mice are not rats… not even close.

No. 610782

More info:

At low densities, a male rat monopolizes a burrow of females. He defends a territory, keeping other males away from the burrow and the surrounding area, and he mates only with the females of his group. One male mating with multiple females is a polygynous mating system. At low densities, Norway rats are therefore territorial and polygynous.

At high densities, males can no longer defend a burrow against intruders. There are simply too many intruders. At high densities, the social system becomes despotic, with one male becoming socially dominant while others become socially subordinate. Males no longer defend female burrows. Instead, when a female comes into heat a group of males rushes her and mates with her sequentially, with little or no competition between themselves. Males may mate with multiple estrus females this way, and females mate with multiple males. This mating system is polygynandrous. At high densities, Norway rats are therefore despotic and polygynandrous.

Wild rat aggressive behavior is similar to that seen in domestic rats, with fighting, chasing, biting, and boxing. However, wild rats don't display some agonistic behaviors seen in domestic rats, such as the sidling posture and the belly-up posture. The difference is probably due to the restricted environment of the cage, which leads to prolonged, escalated conflicts and the necessity of protracted self-defense in close quarters.

As someone who's owned male rats, she's a moron. Even rats are at risk of becoming extremely hormonal after puberty hits and becoming aggressive to the point that they need neutered or put down.

And male rats can't just be tossed in together. It's very dangerous to just put two rats together if they aren't young siblings.

Rats that are being introduced need at LEAST a week of heavily supervised interaction before they can be housed together. And the housing together for the first day needs to be constantly supervised as it's the most likely place for things to go wrong.

Male mice are even MORE aggressive toward one another and she just plays fast and loose about it.

But sure, HT, rats and mice are exactly the same and always get along with each other.

No. 610804

Don't want to give away who I am, but I literally run one of the worlds largest online rat forums, I've kept rats for decades and I disagree that rats can become hormonal enough to be put down /ever/.

Imho it's exceedingly rare that a male rat even needs to be isolated for good. And if hormonal aggression does appear, it's almost always greatly reduced by neutering.

Some rats need more experienced hands than others in this, but I've taken in more than a few 'lone male rats' over the years that were supposedly hormonal and aggressive and could not be kept with other rats. None of them ended up living alone, none of them were really aggressive, most were just afraid and hadn't been socialised well.

However, you're spot on with not tossing them in together off the get go (quarantine and same litter males aside) even females need slow introductions over a period of /weeks/, most male introductions (especially unaltered males) should take at least a month. Setbacks mean starting from scratch, it could mean injuries.. it's not something you rush.

Mice are completely different than rats though; you just can't compare the two. I wouldn't dream of doing what HT is doing with her mice. Not in a million years.

I was short handing and didn't want to completely info dump, but I only put euthenasia down as I've had to put down a rat for aggressive behavior due to megacolon. I had him for less than a month and was terrified of his behavior/would never have known it was megacolon if not for the vet. I should've put something about aggression due to illness.

But I agree. I've never introduced rats, honestly, because I've never been comfortable with it; all my boys have been brothers and sweet with each other mostly.

No. 610823

Yeah, I wouldn't count that as putting down due to aggression even, just PTS because of illness. Megacolon is a horrible condition that can be painful; touching a rat with it can cause them even more discomfort hence lashing out. Sorry for your loss. This is why I hate BYB operations and chain store supply with rats; so much unnecessary suffering of then both owners and pets.

Like with most animals, there's always a /reason/ for aggression. Even people who think their animals are lashing out for no reason… no, there is a reason, you're just ignoring or ignorant of it.

With HT, she's wilfully ignorant. If her mice hurt each other as they get older and more territorial, she has no one to blame but herself.

No. 610874

here's my thing with saying 'BYB' betta/reptiles/small pets etc. while i agree that the betta in the picture dnt look ready to breed, they were not kept in small cups and were cared for. 'hobby breeders' is a more appropriate term. i would much rather purchase from a hobby breeder than a pet shop and support that market. where else are you finding a lot of these animals? are you saying small breeders are backyard breeding? im not talking about dogs and cats. i dont think dogs and cats should be bred by just anyone if even at all. but watch yourself when your critisizing these small breeders because they actually care about the outcome of their animals beyond when they go home and not just pumping out mass quantities for profit. ya'll are riduclous about this. dogs and cats can be backyard bred, hobby breeders are specialized as long as theyve done research and are going about it properly.

No. 610876

Oh look, another one.

BYB = Backyard breeder is a term used to describe amateur animal breeders whose breeding is considered substandard, with little or misguided effort towards ethical, selective breeding.

All of the above who have been BYB fall into this literal definition. Not ever breeder = BYB. Get some reading comprehension.

No. 610886

but who is to say that selective or educated breeding isnt happening? maybe not the betta situation but would cataleah be considered a backyard breeder since she works with other crested gecko breeders and breeds high end geckos? where is the line? megan is obviously a backyard breeder since her animals are just free breeding and her mutts. but say a pettuber tried to breed a rarer species of lizard or snake since there wasnt many in captivity and they were educated on the species and after care. would you consider that backyard breeding too? im curious

No. 610899

Show me an example of what you think is a pettuber engaging in ethical breeding and I'll have this debate with you. Right now, /every/ pettuber criticised as a BYB has not been breeding ethically. It's a non argument.

Also just because something is rare in captivity, isn't an excuse for breeding it.

In regards to Cataleah, she breeds a gecko that is openly hostile towards her (bad temperament), doesn't have a plan for the babies they produce, just wants the babies because she thinks they'll be pretty, keeps potentially WC animals despite saying she's against it, wants to breed these individuals despite not knowing their ages or background, breeds crested geckos despite the market already being over saturated with them (again doesn't know the history of all), wants to breed gargoyle geckos again without knowing their background/history or age… so yeah, that's bad breeding.

i definitely never said i liked her at all, i was just questioning it. questioning maddies rat breeding since when she came here she seemed to be working with other breeders and knew about the genetics of her rats. i dont kno about the sick rat situation im just commenting on breeding, so if shes actually working with breeders and known lines then im curous how she is a byb. danny or em breeding snakes and trading them with friends even tho does anyone know what there breeding? they were called out for byb even tho all of the snakes had a plan afterwards? we dont even know if theres anything wrong so its all just speculation? tyler rugge said he was planning on potentially breeding his abronias since a lot of abronias are wild caught.

No. 610966

Yeah, several of them have said they were working with breeders and yet done stuff that no ethical breeder would. Perhaps they were working with other BYB if at all.

I'm still waiting for a good example of ethical breeding from a pettuber. And no not unless Danny and Em have a /lot/ of friends who want snakes, not all those babies have plan. The fact that they keep it so quiet is also suspect, a lot of what they hide is suspect because it often turns out to be bad… look at Bad Idea's old enclosure… her /new/ enclosure.

All you've really said there is that Tyler also wants to become a BYB.

No. 611918


Do the chinchillas have any place to hide? They are den animals and spend most of their day hiding. They also could use way more chew toys, wood ledges, etc. The cage size is good, but it's definitely lacking in some other aspects. Not the worst I've ever seen, but definitely needs improvement. That crestie tank though…GAG!

That cage is actually separated into 2 cages housing 3 chinchillas, pic related. The top part houses two and the bottom part houses one. They don't really have hides unless you count the area under the shelf, which I generally don't because the area is generally too open space.
Probably when this thread dies
That's actually a very good point, I never thought of that.

No. 612109


They do have some lava ledges, but definitely no hides. Chinchillas spend their lives in caves in the Andes mountains. They NEED hides. They will climb quite a bit, but 90% of their life is spent hiding.

A single Critter Nation is suitable for 2 chins, so 3 in a double is still fine, size wise.

I've also constantly wondered if she gives her chinchillas fresh fruits or veggies which is 100% not ok.

No. 612110

Looks like those chins already did a good deal of damage to those cages, especially the bottom one

No. 612112


There's also zero reason not to swap those plastic ledges out for wood shelves. There's dozens of places to buy wood shelves for chinchilla cages. And it also looks like she has carefresh for them which is a also a major concern for impaction. Chinchillas chew anything and everything. Like crazy. She could also buy metal bass pans instead of using the plastic ones. Or cover them in fleece. These are not hard to do or expensive. She's just lazy.

No. 612118

I wouldn't consider that bottom cage to be a suitable size for a chinchilla, personally. Look at the bottom pic, that's the chinchilla's entire cage. It's about the size of a pet store bought guinea pig cage, just a bit taller.

No. 612120


It's a single Critter Nation. It's plenty suitable. Not WKing. I just have researched chinchillas for over a decade. The size is fine. The ledges, bedding, lack of hides etc. is not ok.

No. 612160

It seems like HT, like a lot of “pettubers” pushes her smaller animals — ie chinchillas and guinea pigs (along with her conures who seem to be in small enclosures but I’m not near as acknowledgable in them as I am companion animals so I can’t speak on that truly) to the side for trendier animals like reptiles.

- Both her and her 'friend' throw their parrots into flight, something you should never do. You should always be your birds 'safe spot' to land on. Throwing them removes that, it teaches them that if they're tired or don't want to fly, you can't be relied on to provide a perch.

- At least she's finally flying Hope with a GPS

- Hope gets bitten by one of her other birds, she admits this has happened before. The other bird is much smaller than Hope and could have easily been killed should hope have lashed out back. This other bird was also apparently able to break into Hope's cage.

- She fusses both birds while they're clearly trying to attack each other.

No. 612626

Okay I'm not sure where to post this but I recently found this video and I really think it needs exposure.


At 1:12 in the video, a rat which was kept in a box was tossed at an elderly lady as a prank. Almost everyone in the room immediately started to scream and run, including the poor rat.

The part which concerns me the most begins at 3:36 (https://youtu.be/W00RepvErX8&t=3m36s), when Alicia states that her grandmother fell in love with the rat, how the grandmother was an animal activist, that "everyone" wanted to keep the pet rat, how they had a cage and everything, but ultimately, after thinking really HARD for 2 hours, decided to leave the animal outside to die.

>at the end of the day, we decided to let the rat out into the wild so that like the rat can have a little bit of free time or whatever instead of going back to the shop to get eaten by a snake

They also pinned this post in the comments after multiple people posted about how worried and disgusted they were:

>For those complaining about us letting the rat go. It was a feeder rat that was being sold to he fed to someone’s pet snake. Meaning they were going to to take the rat straight to a cage, put it in and let the snake devour it. We let the rat go to at least feel freedom and not be caged up any longer.

Basically admitting that they bought an animal for the sole purpose of pranking their grandmother. AKA sentenced an animal to death after they used it to gain views and money…

I reported the video itself but I wanted to try to let other's know what this channel has done and is willing to do for a few thousand views. I can't imagine hat they'll do for a million.

No. 612629

- Dog is on a lead, she films the owner and makes out their dog is aggressive (no, just prey driven like most dogs)

- Complains about dogs in the park almost catching Hope before.

- Says that hope and the birds in the area have a game going on where they chase each other (no, Hope is scaring them and invading their nesting/roosting territory, it's not a game for them).

- Bitches more (in text) about the dog owner whose dog is now laying down calmly and only barked earlier when she sent her brightly coloured bird flying off only metres away from it.

- Shows the owners full face. Doesn't think that they might be waiting there for her to leave so they can walk their dog.

This is so fucking awful.

What is wrong with them… feeder rats are often bought as pets too. Additionally that's no reason for a cruel prolonged death outside by starvation or the cold or even further predation.

That's a family vlog channel too. They've jumped from 1k subscribers to 16k in a couple months which is probably why they pulled a stunt like this. The fact that they're a brand new channel that has been growing so fast worries me. This can easily be deleted, swept under the rug and forgotten until it happens again. I don't want the next animal they kill to be worth a million views and actual money to them. If only YT would remove these evil types of people, who just are capable of thoughtlessly endangering creatures like this.

I wonder what danger they have and will put their child in, just for the chance of one of their videos going viral.

Is this actionable… like could the owner sue her for implying his dog is vicious?

Hell more importantly, the video with the children (whose images she used in the thumbnail) that she accused of trying to kidnap Hope? Especially as in the video they all said they wanted to return the bird to it's owner and they thought it was lost.

She's slandering these people and posting their unblurred images online for her audience to find.

No. 612887

Also is it me, or does the family+children kidnapping one seem to be somewhat racially motivated.

Like white people have called to her bird/told her about a bird flying around and she's just explained it was hers.

No. 612911

As far as US animal laws go, as long as the park allowed dogs I don't believe the dog owner could get sued for any damages. It's her bird that is free-roaming (not contained via cage, leash, etc), the dog is on a leash and contained. In fact, the dog owner could potentially sue her for vet costs if the bird managed to damage the dog, even if it were by impaction from eating it. Dogs are almost never labeled as dangerous/vicious for attacking pets, especially not for a single incident. It's generally reserved for people and livestock, sometimes dogs if enough dogs died.
As far as suing for the dog potentially being dangerous… Completely out of the question in America. Americans may be sue happy but they still have freedoms. That dog did literally nothing but sit there and bark. Like I said earlier, even if the dog did eat the bird, she couldn't do shit about it because her bird was not 'contained' while that dog was.

No. 612918

Sorry, I mean could the dog owner take action against her for slandering him/his animal. And showing both himself (unblurred) and animal on camera.

The same for (and more seriously for) the children who she accused of trying to steal Hope.

No. 612934

The showing the face part totally depends if the state is a one party consent or two party consent state. Some states it's perfectly legal for one individual to record other individuals so long as the people being recorded are in public. Other states (two party consent) require both the recorder and the people they are recording to consent. Only 11 states are two party consent states. He'd only be able to get her for not asking his consent to show his face on the video (which can be easily remedied), I don't think he can get her for slandering his dog because I can't imagine how it would affect him in an economic way. Even if she slandered him, he would need to prove it greatly affected his career or something…

No. 612941

Thanks for the info anon, not from the US so I wasn't sure. What about the children though, that imho is a much more serious offence as they'd be unable to consent, so you'd have to get the permission of their guardians. Which she obviously does not do when using them as clickbait.

Seeing this makes me so nervous. I don't have birds but I have large lizards and I regularly take them to animal friendly parks but I take off as soon as dogs come around.
Dogs don't mean to be "agressive". They see them as prey, like a cat would a mouse. You'd probably never take a pet mouse out around a cat would you? She is so irresponsible with that bird. Does anyone know the exact rules surrounding animals in that park? I know all dog parks in my area are only dogs allowed, but the rest allow all animals except for horses (there's actually signs that say this lol). I don't know if those are regular rules for a dog park but if they are, she shouldn't be allowed her bird in a dog park should she?
Also do all of these people realize she's filming them for YouTube? I wouldn't be too fond of my children being put on YouTube if I didn't realize that was what was happening

No. 613204

Literally all of her videos are click baited and she always manages to put her bird into danger in all of the videos. She actually pisses me off so much can you have people commenting that they're actually concerned and are following the channel only because some disaster is bound to happen.

This video in particular seems to riled a lot of people up.

God she really needs to be called out by someone.

Fuck me wtf. They could have at least sold the rat to someone or had a home lined up for them, or even take it to a rescue shelter.

They could probably do something about them being posted online without permission? I can't imagine every person in the vlogs knows that they're being put online and basically bitched about.

I saw a lot of comments about the owners being irresponsible for not stopping their dog performing a natural behaviour. I mean you can't exactly train a dog to not react to a stimuli they've never seen before, and if the dog was to be attacked or scared by the animal then you have lasting effects and that alone can be horrible to fix especially if it transfers to other larger birds like crows.

She honestly should consider the other owners in the park. I know for a fact that a lot of dog owners take 'sections' of parks as far away from each other so their dogs can still explore but they don't have to be worried in case the dog is aggressive or is scared of other dogs. It's literally one of the polite things to do, like crossing a road if you see the other dog is getting a bit iffy about your dog. Instead she continues standing close to these animals and pretending like there's an issue when she can very easily just step away.

He has a 100 reptiles in a small room and is breeding more?
Any word on how safe bricks are at keeping snakes from escaping? Did some googling and the general idea is that it only works for so long and you need clamps/locks.
He seems to be fine with upgrading enclosures so that's nice.

No. 613829

a lot of leopard gecko owners and forums prefer/suggest paper towel due to the risk of impaction from loose substrate, like play sand and eco-earth. theres a much greater chance of them ingesting loose substrate over time resulting in gradual impaction than them eating an entire paper towel.
of course if your husbandry is on point then your gecko should be able to pass any small amounts of ingested substrate. but paper towel avoids the risk altogether, as well as helps keeping the habitat clean.
