If you weren’ t aware of this horribly brutal fetish, “Crush videos”, as described by the website, involve participants (who are often scantily clad women in high heels) inflicting excruciating, fatal injuries on small animals such as puppies, kittens, and rabbits. The participant typically stomps the helpless creature until its bowels and internal organs protrude through gaping wounds and the animal dies a horrible and painful death.

Crush videos have been an issue for at least 10 years. The legality of crush films and the actual practice of crushing vary by region around the world.

Two years ago in the Philippines, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Asia-Pacific offered a hefty sum to find two Filipino “crush video” producers, who were arrested soon after the PETA bounty.

In the Philippines, there are no specific laws against crush films. Someone found guilty of animal torture are subjected to a maximum of two years imprisonment and or a P5,000 fine.

However, an upcoming bill proposal  would criminalize activity involving crush videos and the website ForceChange.com has prepared a petition you can sign directed to  the Embassy of the Philippines to get support for the upcoming legislation.

The petition is as follows: (click here to fill out the petition with ForceChange.com)

Dear Embassy of the Philippines,

Crush videos have been gaining popularity in the Philippines as a violent and demonic sexual fetish. Crush videos involve the barbaric abuse of small defenseless animals such as puppies, kittens, and rabbits, by participants who stomp the animals to death or torture them for long periods of time. Please support the upcoming bill proposal that would protect these innocent creatures from the horrific abuse that some people find sexy.

Crush videos typically involve participants slowly murdering small, fuzzy animals. Participants sometimes stomp the creatures until their bowels and internal organs protrude from the body and the animal dies. Sometimes the animal is subjected to heinous torture such as being set on fire while still alive, having limbs and body parts viciously cut off, or skinning the animal alive.  No matter the form of torture, this activity is both barbaric and entirely inhumane.

Please support the bill that would criminalize the production, distribution, and sales of these horrific animal deaths. Make animal abusers suffer the consequences of a decent fine and appropriate prison time. Pass the upcoming bill that will protect animals in the Philippines from this heinous, disgusting from of sexual gratification.
