Physics major Joseph Carlo Candare of University of the Philippines fined P2000 and 2 onths volunteer work for killing a cat named Teteng. On his blog he stated how he have killed the cat.
“An Accidental Crime. First day sa supercon. Lunch time came. On our way out of old NIP I saw the cat I almost killed last Tuesday. Now everyone knows I hate cats. It’s an unexplainable feeling towards them. Like some internal hatred. Hindi ko talaga alam kung bakit pero anumang pagpipigil sa sarili ay hindi sapat upang mapangibabawan ang panggigil ko sa mga pusa. I pulled it on its tail and threw it. Then like some pro wrestler I jumped on it and my feet landed on it’s torso. Slam! Felt good! But the cat didn’t die, well not yet. It ran for its life and just as I was about to catch up on it somebody yelled: ” Pwede bang pabayaan mo yung pusa?!”. It was instant and involuntary. I stopped on my tracks. Nobody ever stopped me when assaulting cats. Well I guess there’s always a first time for everything. The cat got away. Or at least that’s what i thought. So we went to lunch Mel, Jayson, Tracy and me. After lunch, balik na sa kung anumang naiwang gawain . Then Tracy and Mel told me ” Hui Jc napatay mo yung pusa”. Hours later, habang abala sa XRD, a guy came in. Tanong niya: ” Sinong pumatay dun sa pusa?” Bang! Dat was me boi. Guilty as charged. I didn’t see it die pero sabi ni Myles it coughed up blood or at least something like that daw. Didn’t realize I gave it a fatal hit. This isn’t the first time I’ve killed a cat but this time it’s different. It didn’t occur to me back then that the cat had a leash. So I think somebody owns it. Well it’s very well loved in NIP from what I heard and I just ended it’s life. So there you go I’m sorry. And I wont be striking another one for maybe about a month. It feels good when your beating it(a cat) up but you suddenly feel something strange when it turns off permanently. That’s how I feel right now. And maybe for the next days. Dang, am I a cat serial killer? ”
A self confession written on his blog being a serial killer of a cat.
Me being a cat lover being sudden of what Teteng has been through killed without anything to defent herself against Mr. Candare who brutally killed her.
I pulled it on its tail and threw it. Then like some pro wrestler I jumped on it and my feet landed on it’s torso. Slam! Felt good! But the cat didn’t die, well not yet.
That lines where Teteng killed and in the midst of agony where she was stepped on a much heavier weight than her took her life after that moment. Where some saw her coughed with blood and die.
Mr. Candare violated the provisions of the Philippine Animal Welfare Act, Republic Act 8485. PAWS’ volunteer lawyer will be mapping our their legal case against Mr. Candare.
Hope that Mr. Candare would learn his lessons by killing an innocent cat, we should respect animals like anyone else, they also have feelings and has the right to live. No one in this world would have the right to take ones life even to animals. They deserved to live and be respected like others.
