InterAksyon.com reports that twenty-five pitbulls rescued from a dogfighting syndicate run by South Koreans in the Philippines have been put down. According to veterinarian Wilford Almoro, the remaining 215 dogs are likely to end up the same way "unless people come forward to adopt the least aggressive ones that can still be nursed back to health."

 

According to the report, Almoro "estimated that physical rehabilitation for all the animals would cost P3.34 million (about US$78,000) and they would also need treatment to correct their aggressive behavior." Almoro said, "Just imagine the amount of work required for their continuous upkeep... I don't know if people can raise money for that 24/7."

 

The report also noted: "After the police raided the two-hectare farm (last week), they arrested 12 people, including eight South Koreans accused of running the illegal dog fights that were streamed live on the Internet to spectators who placed bets."

    Di ko gets, just a few days ago, these folks were all "we saved these pitbulls from fighting to the death." Now they're killing them? If I were one of the pitbulls I would've gladly fought to the death, gladiator style, than be mass murdered. Rescued ba talaga yan kung papatayin mo din pala?

    Effin self righteous idiots.

    The amount mentioned is practically gas money for the likes of Rep. Pacquiao. SOLICIT, for crying out loud!
