Urge Philippine officials to stop horrific “crush” videos and hold the perverts who make them accountable

PETA Asia (helped by PETA affiliates around the world) has been working hard to shut down the production of cruel “crush” videos, disturbing films in which young girls in “sexy” outfits are videotaped tormenting, abusing, and killing animals—slowly and painfully.

Will you help stop the production of these ghastly videos by taking action online right now?

For more than two years, PETA Asia has been working to end the production, distribution, and sale of these videos, which exploit two of the most vulnerable members of any society—children and animals—and has focused its efforts in the region that may be “ground zero” for the crush-video industry, the Philippines.

These crush videos are made by filming girls stepping, standing, and stomping on and slowly crushing animals—from the smallest of mice to large dogs who are tied down and helpless. They appeal to a niche market of individuals from all over the world who derive sexual pleasure from watching animals being tortured to death.

One Philippine couple has been arrested on criminal charges related to making these graphic videos following a year-long PETA Asia investigation undertaken in cooperation with the Philippine National Bureau of Investigation.

The pair is being held in jail without bail as I write this. Now PETA Asia must follow through—at great financial cost—to pursue the case against these two alleged “crush” producers. Brace yourself: The videos associated with this case show girls skinning a live rabbit, burning a dog with a hot iron, and slowly crushing puppies to death.

Court testimony is well underway, but it’s a lot of hard work for the PETA Asia staff to keep the public’s attention focused on this case in a remote part of the Philippines. The PETA Asia legal team is confident that a judgment will be issued soon in this precedent-setting case. We hope PETA Asia’s pursuit of the case sends a clear message to people in the Philippines and around the world: If you make such videos, you will be caught and go to jail.

PETA Asia’s work on this case has also helped prompt a member of the Philippine Congress to introduce a bill prohibiting the sale, distribution, and exchange of these disgusting videos.

It’s difficult to imagine something as vile as animal crush videos, but you can help us move closer to the day when such sickening cruelty is stopped.

Please take a moment today to urge Philippine officials to ban crush videos.

Thank you for everything that you do for animals—both in your own neighborhood and around the world. Animals need friends like you, and we are proud to have your support.

Take Immediate Action!



there are few things that come even close
to the cruelty here displayed.
the humane and sane among us, are
appalled and beyond dismayed.
it is up to you, philippine authorities,
to harshly deal with this depravity,
show no mercy to the monstrous
so called people,
who create and watch this
sick barbarity.

    this crush video trend is utterly appalling, barbaric and revolting. the individuals doing the heinous torture and murder of innocent animals AND the people who watch and derive pleasure from observing are extremely mentally sick, twisted and unstable individuals. have sent an email and am sharing this info with many animal welfare distribution lists i’m on worldwide.
