CASE ONE | Children Forced to Crush Animals to Death

Related action: please click on and sign Ban Horrifying Animal Abuse Videos in the Philippines

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.

WARNING: Graphic descriptions follow.

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.

PETA Asia-Pacific is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of Dorma and Vic Ridon. Anyone with information on the couple can e-mail Info@peta.org and we will pass it along.

CASE TWO | IDA Pledges $2,500 To Catch And Convict Kitten Torturer in McMinnville, Oregon


Contact: Tony Carr, 503-249-9996, tony@idausa.org

Portland, Ore. (July 20, 2011) – In Defense of Animals (IDA), an international animal protection organization with over 100,000 members, has pledged $2,500 to a reward fund for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals who tortured and abandoned four kittens in McMinnville, Oregon.

On June 30, four starving and dehydrated kittens estimated to be 3 to 4 weeks old were brought in a box to the Homeward Bound Pets animal shelter in McMinnville. One cat appeared physically healthy otherwise but the other three showed signs of torture.

A calico kitten had such severe injuries that she had to be euthanized. Her whiskers had been burned off and her lower jaw was broken, possibly due to a kick to the head or another extremely forceful impact. A Siamese kitten showed multiple wounds at various stages of healing, a sign of continuous abuse rather than a single incident or accident. The third injured cat – a long-haired white kitten with grey spots – is weak, barely able to stand or walk, and exhibits a strange gait when moving. The cause of these symptoms is unknown. The shelter worker fostering the kitten reported that he had a hard time holding up his head to eat and cried incessantly while held, unable to be comforted.

Shelter workers and IDA staff believe the nature and variety of these injuries constitute solid evidence of torture. The attending veterinarian is in the process of filing a report of possible aggravated animal abuse with local police.

“FBI profiles of serial killers suggest that the disturbed individual responsible for these despicable acts is a danger, not only to other animals in the area, but to people as well,” said Tony Carr, Northwest Coordinator for IDA. “Serial killers commonly practice on animals before ‘graduating’ to humans and studies have confirmed that those who abuse animals are much more likely to abuse humans. For your own safety, as well as the safety of the animals, children, and adults around you, please contact the police if you have any information on animal cruelty in your community.”

IDA urges anyone with information leading to the conviction of the criminal(s) responsible for the brutal mutilation of these defenseless kittens to contact the City of McMinnville Police Department at (503) 434-6500. The three people who dropped off these kittens at Homeward Bound are urged to contact either the shelter or the police to help with the investigation. To contribute to the reward fund, please call IDA at (415) 448-0048.

    Is it me, or does it seem like the world is becoming crueler? I thought after years of viewing many of the graphic images and videos, I would become tougher. I’m not; In fact there are times i just sit and weep at the images on my computer. I just hope our pleas for change don’t fall on deaf ears. I will never stop trying, but some days I feel as though I am a hundred years old.
    Many thanks Stacey for doing such a fine job of reporting these travesties; I’m sure you must feel pretty much the same way.
