Filipino Children Forced To Crush Animals to Death

This is sickening and horrible to think about. I cannot imagine anyone being so cruel. But what is worse is that there must be an audience out there for this kind of stuff. I cannot believe that people would actually want to buy and watch something so awful!

After a year-long investigation by PETA Asia-Pacific and the National Bureau of Investigations, police have now charged a Philippine couple with cruelty to animals and other crimes related to producing a series of pornographic videos in which young girls torture and kill animals. Faced with the charges, suspects Dorma and Vic Ridon have fled. Warrants have been issued for them.

According to PETA, they were informed about a Filipino selling the “crush videos" on the Internet middle of last year by a Russian tipster. It said the tipster pretended to be a customer, purchased the videos online and handed a link over to PETA, as well as information on the Filipino in La Union.

WARNING: Graphic descriptions follow. Obscene scenes depicted.

The "crush" videos that the Ridons are believed to have produced show scantily clad 12-year-old girls as they stomp on live animals, a rabbit as he or she is skinned alive, other rabbits as they scream while their ears are cut off and they are set on fire, a dog as he or she is burned with a clothes iron, and a monkey who was repeatedly hit in the eye with the sharp end of a stiletto heel. There is more, including puppies crushed until they vomited their own internal organs. A bill currently in the Philippine Senate would criminalize the sale of such "crush videos," already illegal in the U.S. and other countries. You can e-mail Ambassador Jose L. Cuisia Jr. and ask him to vocally support the bill and help prevent the videos from being produced in his country.

PETA Asia-Pacific is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of the Ridons. You may also opt to make a donation to PETA Asia-Pacific to help the group fight cruelty to animals in this case as well as in many others.
