Demand Maximum Punishment for Dog Meat Traders


Target: Hon. Bona Fe De Vera Parayno, Mangaldan Municipal Mayor

Goal: Demand maximum punishment for dog meat traders arrested in the Philippines

Two dog meat traders were arrested in March at their slaughterhouse in the Philippines and will soon stand trial. Filipino trade in dog meat is a cruel but common business, and involves the brutal torture and murder of dogs so their meat can be sold for food.

Network for Animals conducted a raid on the dog meat slaughterhouse in Mangaldan, Philippines following two months of detective work. The property owner and his accomplice were arrested after a gruesome scene was discovered. Dog corpses, blood and knives were found throughout the slaughterhouse. Three dead dogs were found boiled and skinned in a metal bowl, a practice meat traders perform on the corpses in order to pull the dog’s softened fur out and blow-torch the hairs that remain. Four of the seven live dogs discovered later were terrified but otherwise healthy; three of the poor creatures did not survive.

The two arrested dog meat traders are accused of violating the Animal Welfare and Anti-Rabies Act. If convicted they will each receive a minimum of twelve months in prison. Demand both traders receive the maximum punishment for their cruel, heartless crimes.


Dear Hon. Mayor Bona Fe De Vera Parayno,

The dog meat trade is a cruel business which involves the brutal torture and murder of animals who otherwise could have been family pets. What’s more, it endangers the health of unsuspecting consumers since many of the dogs used for their meat are strays which may be infected with rabies and other contagious diseases.

Two dog meat traders were recently arrested at their slaughterhouse in Mangaldan. Months of detective work lead the organization Network for Animals to conduct their raid on the dog meat slaughterhouse on March 11, which resulted in the gruesome discovery of dog corpses, blood and knives. Three dead dogs were found already boiled and skinned, along with two other corpses. Seven live dogs were later found waiting to be slaughtered, three of which could not be saved.

The property owner and his accomplice were arrested for violating the Animal Welfare and Anti-Rabies Act. Fortunately the two men were caught and are set to stand trial for their crimes. The property owner and his accomplice were arrested for violating the Animal Welfare and Anti-Rabies Act. I demand they both receive the maximum punishment possible for their cruel, heartless acts.

    Sick’o people and so are the ones that eat it. Stop hurting these poor defensless creatures. Shame on you all. 12 months is not enough they should have done to them what they did to these poor vulnerable, trusting dogs.

    The whole trade in dog and cat meat is horrific in the extreme.
    These animals are brutalised intentionally by being thrown into boiling water, electrocuted, beaten whilst hanging from hooks and who knows how many other horrors, usually whilst still alive.
    Terrorising them is believed to make them more enjoyable for those who eat them. So the more they can be terrorised the better in the eyes of these people.

    This has no place in civilised society and the best way to end it is to punish the perpetrators severely to send a clear message to everyone involved.

    Send them down!

  6. I’m a vegetarian at this time! I’ve stopped eating meat since months ago.

    What these men have done is inhumane. They should be punished for much more than the maximum punishment in my opinion. I have no words that can describe how disgusted at the actions of these men and others like them. So I lend these quotes.

    “Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.”
    – Thomas Edison, American inventor.

    “Of all the animals, man is the only one that is cruel. He is the only one that inflicts pain for the pleasure of doing it.”
    –Mark Twain

    “For the fate of the sons of men and the fate of the beasts is the same; as one dies, so dies the other; they all have the same breath, and man has no advantage over the beasts; for all is vanity. All go to one place; all are from dust, and all turn to dust again.”
    – Ecclesiastes, 3:19-20.

    Animals, like humans, suffer emotionally. We must strive to cause them neither physical pain nor emotional anguish. – EXODUS 34:26

    UNLESS Someone like you cares a whole
    awful lot, nothing is going to get better.
    It’s not.
    DR Seuss

    This is not culture. This is TORTURE. Barbarians are on the same scale as the people that do this. There is nothing more cowardly than torturing an innocent animal that cannot defend itself. Yet, if these men were about to be slaughtered in the sane fashion, the would excrement all if themselves. Animal abusers are the lowest forms of cowards on the plant and they are an embarrassment to mankind. The devil will have his day with theses men. He is waiting patiently to inflict the same torture into them.
