News on animal abuse have become popular lately on Facebook due to the controversial scene in 'Oro' where a real dog was reportedly killed.

To those who are not familiar with Philippine culture, cockfighting is a pastime of most Filipinos. It is a sport where two roosters battle it out in an arena with metal spurs attached to their legs.
While it is common in the country, it is illegal in others which means that what this woman entered her pet dog in can also be considered as such.
If she has not disclosed the real score on the underground fight of her dog through the comments section of her post, then she would not have been called out by another netizen who has had it with animal abuse.

This whistleblower netizen posted screenshots of the woman's photos and comment on her page, tagging Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) and its rehabilitation center on her post.
It has since become viral, to the point that other netizens have left nasty comments on the page of the woman who joined her dog in the underground fight.
As of writing, the woman has deactivated her Facebook account presumably due to the bashers she has received since she also took back her comment on her controversial post.

Let this be a lesson learned to everyone not to share things that would be called out on social media.
We should also take note of the words we use in our posts since they can trigger negative emotions among netizens who are either easily touched or provoked.
Abuse should not be tolerated, human or otherwise, since all of us deserves to live our life to the fullest. Let us take a page from Raeven Bonifacio, who took in a sickly dog who was actually a Siberian husky after he completely nursed it back to health.
