PHILIPPINES COUPLE FACE CHARGES OVER ANIMAL TOTURE VIDEO

Labels:

MANILA, Philippines - Vicente and Dorma ‘Chita' Ridon also face charges of human trafficking and violating wildlife protection laws in a case filed by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) and the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) over the ‘animal crush videos' the couple uploaded on their website
This couple was charged with child abuse and violating animal rights laws in connection with gruesome internet videos featuring young girls torturing and killing pets.
  • The videos were sold via secretive Internet chat groups to people overseas who wanted to watch the footage for thrills, said Rochelle Regodon (right photo), Asia campaign manager for PETA.
  • "The videos just tear your heart out. This disgustingly cruel enterprise must be stopped," Regodon said at a news conference where some of the clips were screened.
  • In the videos, girls wearing mini-skirts and high heels cut the ears off rabbits with scissors before being setting them on fire, burned a dog with a clothes iron and stood on puppies.
  • After PETA reported the crimes to authorities, police charged a husband and wife in the northern Philippines with animal cruelty, child abuse and human trafficking.
  • But the couple fled before being arrested, and PETA said Tuesday it was offering a reward of 100,000 pesos ($2,300) for information leading to their capture.
Last July, two lawmakers Irwin Tieng and Mariano Michael Velarde of the Buhay party list filed a motion to penalize people producing footage of animal cruelty in a bid to deter the practice. Tieng said animal crush videos catered to those with sexual fetishes.
