A video uploaded by a certain Paul Tristan showing a brazen display of severe animal cruelty, has gone viral on Facebook.

Tristan, who posted the video on the morning of April 23, 2015, is requesting help from authorities and animal rights groups like the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) in apprehending the suspects caught on video abusing and killing his pet dog.

The incident occurred at noon on Tuesday, April 21, 2015, at Paul Tristan’s residence in Lot 9, Block 18 Barrio Sta.Maria, Pedro Gil Paco, Manila. According to eyewitnesses, the alleged suspects are Federico Lugto a.k.a “Batman,” reportedly the person caught on video hitting the dog with an unidentified instrument until it died; Juanito Y. Hilado a.k.a. “Jojo,” the man identified as wearing a fatigue sleeveless shirt; Racel Manalang; and Jhonny Tallada, who reportedly gave orders to kill the dog.

Tristan, an OFW based in Singapore, is requesting assistance in tracking down the suspects and bringing them to justice. His mother and grandfather were apparently not home during the incident.

A copy of the Paul Tristan’s plea can be found below:

“Nananawagan po ako sa mga kinauukulan na nangangalaga sa mga hayop. Sa Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) upang mabigyan ng hustisya ang pagpatay at pagkatay sa alaga naming aso noong araw ng Martes, April 21, 2015 bandang alas-dose hanggang ala-una ng tanghali.

Nangyari ang insidenteng ito sa tapat mismo ng aming bahay sa LOT 9 BLOCK 18 BARRIO STA.MARIA PEDRO GIL PACO, MANILA. Ayon sa mga impormasyong aking nakalap, ang mga suspek ay sina FEDERICO LUGTO alyas BATMAN (Siya ung nakaitim na pumukpok sa aso hanggang mamatay). JUANITO Y. HILADO alyas JOJO ( Yung nakasando na fatigue na mejo long hair), RACEL MANALANG (yung kamay n may hawak na supot sa loob ng bahay) at ang tinuturong nag-utos sa pagpatay sa aso na si JHONNY TALLADA.

Pakikalat po natin ang videong ito upang makulong at maparusahan ang mga abusadong ito at matigil na ang pagmamaltrato sa mga hayop. Nagttrabaho po ako dito sa Singapore bilang isang OFW. Wala po ang mama at lolo ko sa bahay namin noong nangyari ito kaya hindi napigilan. Maraming salamat sa nagmagandang loob na kumuha ng video. PLEASE LIKE & SHARE THIS VIDEO! LET’S STOP ANIMAL CRUELTY!”
