Isn't Mr. John Carlo Candrare aware of this statute?
Last week, a kitten was brutally murdered by a UP diliman student named John C. Candrare. It was known to the public how he cruelly and pitilessly took the life of the cat whom we named Tengteng. We are fighting for her. WE SHOUT "JUSTICE FOR TENGTENG!"
Many people would say, "pusa lamang yan." Yeah, I agree with you. Tengteng is just a cat but let me remind you that like us, she is created by the Higher Being we all believe in and she has a life. No one has the right to take it away from her. As the highest creature in the echelon of life, it is our duty to protect the little ones and not reign high and superior over them.
If you agree with me, then please support the JUSTICE FOR TENGTENG campaign. this is not too much to ask from you. all you have to do is to sign the petition just like these people.
