FILIPINO BLOGGER CONVICTED FOR TORTURING KITTEN


MANILA, Philippines - A Philippine student tortured and killed a cat and then bragged about it in an online diary posting that horrified animal lovers, press reports said Saturday.
The 21-year-old physics student Joseph Carlo Candare(right photo), 21, pleaded guilty of killing a five-month-old kitten at the University of the Philippines campus in 2009. He was convicted last Thursday by a Quezon City metropolitan court for violating a law against animal cruelty.

  • "He killed the cat for no reason at all. We got wind of it in a few days and we tracked him down. He was just 19 then," Anna Cabrera(right photo), executive director of the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (Paws), was quoted by GMA News as saying.
  • The conviction was a landmark decision in Philippine jurisprudence.
  • In his blog, Candare said he relished torturing the kitten named "Tengteng" and boasted that he had on several occasions killed cats. "It feels good when you are beating a cat up," he wrote.
Candare's blog sparked outrage from pet lovers and animal rights activists prompting the Paws to file a case against him in court. Candare became the first person in the country to be convicted of cruelty against a single animal, joining 40 other people who had been convicted of mass animal abuses, including the transport and sale of dog meat, they said.
The court ordered him to report to the group's suburban Manila animal shelter where he would be taking care of pets that were rescued from cruelty or neglect, they quoted the verdict as saying.
