(PI) Couple behind animal cruelty videos nabbed

The Filipino couple accused of spreading videos of scantily clad girls performing various forms of animal cruelty for profit has been arrested in La Union province, the animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) said on Thursday.

Victor and Dorma Ridon were arrested last Tuesday in Burgos, La Union, after a year-long manhunt operation by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and after PETA offered a P100,000 reward for any information leading to the couple's arrest.
The Ridons allegedly produced and sold 68 videos -- or "crush films" -- showing, among others, rabbits being mutilated alive, dogs being burned with clothes iron, and puppies being stepped on, their internal organs spewing out.
