Cop slammed after posting photos of slaughtered dog

A member of the Philippine National Police has been slammed on social media after he posted photos of a slaughtered dog on Facebook.

The Philippine Animal Lovers Society (PALS), a community of Filipino animal lovers worldwide, identified the police officer as Clifton De Leon.

In its Facebook page, the group posted a collage showing a screen capture of De Leon's Facebook wall, his profile picture, and photos of what appears to be a burnt and slaughtered dog with a status message that says "inuman na."

PALS cited Republic Act 10631 amending certain sections of RA 8485, otherwise known as the "Animal Welfare Act of 1998," which specifies the following penalty:

Imprisonment of one (1) year and six (6) months and one (1) day to two (2) years and/or a fine not exceeding One hundred thousand pesos (P100,000.00) if the animal subjected to cruelty, maltreatment or neglect dies;

The group called the cop "DOG MEAT EATER" who "THINKS HE IS ABOVE THE LAW !!!"

PALS' Facebook post already garnered hundreds of likes, shares, and comments as of this posting. According to some commenters, De Leon allegedly said his Facebook account was hacked.
