Another arrest has been made on a member of the animal abuse ring brought to light in September. According to Cubanos en Defensa de los Animales (CEDA, or Cubans in Defense of Animals), Rubén Marrero Pernas, using the fandom pseudonyms "Woof" and "Warg" (amongst others) was arrested on November 24, after details of his involvement in the group had been shared on social media. CiberCuba has more details surrounding the story.

Pernas was identified from an image in the abuse ring's chat logs (shown at right), which he posted of himself holding a puppy that he'd adopted from CEDA. The puppy was killed within days of adoption, and pictures of its abuse were also in the chat logs. When CEDA announced news of Pernas' arrest via Facebook, they stated that two living dogs were rescued from his residence.

As Cuba currently lacks animal welfare laws, it's not clear for what specific crime Pernas was arrested - possibly for the distribution of pornography.

Thank god this guy is locked up. The Kiwi Farms zoo megathread on this has plenty evidence against all of the awful people in the sadism ring, though its not for the faint of heart.

It's not clear that he was locked up or what happened. The authorities in Cuba aren't the most transparent and their laws may not have provided sufficient reason for arrest (not that it stops them...) Although if he didn't go to prison, he may have been sent to a mental institution (which is far from likely to be better.) It can even be hard to get news because negative stories can risk being treated as treasonous and journalists or institutions who speak up can face backlash.

I'd been trying to get more info by contact to the CEDA group and they were willing to help, but their internet access isn't easy at all, so they weren't able to keep in touch with me. I'll go nudge them again though and see what I can find out.

One of the most amazing aspects about this is how happenings in the furry fandom actually provoked a citizen protest against a nation's government to amend it's constitution for animal welfare laws. (The CEDA group that helped get Ruben's dogs into foster homes helped to lead it, IIRC.)

If by "amazing" you mean amazingly fucked up and unfortunate, yeah. This is literally the last thing the fandom should be noteworthy for. The fact furries were involved tangentially in something that caused the people of an oppressed nation to find their balls has nothing to do with us and frankly I think you're being blind at best and intellectually dishonest at worst. If you want to correct your stupid ass reword yourself a bit, you know, maybe you're not literally trying to spin this into something that paints the fandom in a positive light. We almost certainly had nothing to do with it, zoosadism had everything to do with it.

The only positive thing for the fandom in all this, if you can call it that, is that these busts happen to be taking place at a time when most people are wise enough to furries to know it's something entirely distinct from zoosadism. If this had been like, 10-15 years ago, back when the stereotype still held water for some, completely innocent people would be losing their jobs left and right over this.

Hell, even as I write this I'm still not convinced we're even completely out of the woods yet. People these days are begging, utterly desperate for any acceptable target.

"tangentially"

oh yeah not a real furry

Cool PR spin there I guess if you're in the business of covering things up. But anyone who spent time looking at this knows exactly where it came from.

You'd be *really* amazed if you saw the stuff that isn't published (yet.)

If anyone not posting in bad faith was curious about the other spin here, notice the key word "happenings". Also "amazing" has the dictionary definition of "causing great surprise" which isn't a celebration. Although it's most surprising to see how much ignoring, playing "no true scotsman," lying, defending and even (gag) profiting there has been about this.

Lazy or malicious are also good words for anyone who would twist words like this, without even lifting a finger to browse months of work already done about it.

Maybe the reason I don't want to sift through archives worth of your shit is because of how bad your reputation is already shot? I don't trust a god damned thing you post. I never have. I never will. Everything you say is some form of a lie as far as I'm concerned. So just give up.

Equivamp does the same all the damned time, so take your double-standards and stuff them up whichever hole you prefer.

You're projecting so hard right now

Your rating: None Average: 1.2 (6 votes)

I would be deeply offended by what that statement implies if you actually knew what the word projecting meant. You need to see a psychologist more than use their terminology trying to analyse strangers on the internet.

Half your comments here are about how furry as a subculture is cult-y autistic or whatever negative trait you're on about, then someone mentions something done by furries, your immediate thought is that they've got to be trying to get people to think about the subculture a certain way. but it's not projecting though!

Your rating: None Average: 1.3 (3 votes)

Cultish, yes, it often is. Practically all subcultures are. As for autistic, well, a lot of furries are, but a lot of society in general is, and I don't see it as a blight on society the way KiwiFarms does and their hatred towards autistics and pretty much everyone who isn't them is itself exceptionally cultish and is a big part of the reason far more of my comments reference them than cults or autism. As for my beef with you, it's that you're essentially a pesky mosquito that can't just fuck off and go away when it's obvious I do not, will not, and can not ever take you seriously ever again after repeated experiences telling me that it's not worth my time or energy to do so.

Zoosadism =/= furry, though I never claimed they were mutually exclusive. And what's pitiful is you would never in a million years allow for that if it meant admitting you might've been wrong about someone or something, even at the cost of looking like the kind of person who conflates zoosadism and furry.

Even at the cost of looking like a zoosadist sympathizer yourself. That's why I think you're mental. Well, that and what's already widely available about you to anyone who Google's your name.

Yeah I didn't accuse you of saying the two groups are mutually exclusive, you utter crackhead. I'm saying you accused Patch of trying to influence a positive perception of the fandom as heroes with his comment.

Your rating: None Average: 1.3 (3 votes)

I'm not a crackhead, I'm a pothead, get it right. By the way, if you've been commenting as a visitor this whole time to circumvent a block, well, you should know I didn't have you blocked before. I was just making it a point not to engage you. But I'll be blocking you after making this reply as well as visitors in general because visitor comments are almost always pointless and without substance or merit and the few exceptions just aren't worth dealing with you and your bullshit. Bye.

Nah, I just CBF to log in on a different device. Blocking doesn't work on here.
