‘KMJS’ addresses backlash following coverage of Golden Retriever killing incident

KMJS’s response comes amid heightened public scrutiny and serves to reaffirm its commitment to responsible journalism and advocacy against animal cruelty.

Kapuso magazine program ‘Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho’ (KMJS) recently released a statement in response to criticisms stemming from its coverage of the tragic incident involving the killing of a Golden Retriever named Killua in Camarines Sur.

The episode, which aired last Sunday, March 31, sparked controversy as some viewers felt that it portrayed bias towards the perpetrator of the dog’s killing.

However, KMJS swiftly addressed these concerns, asserting that their report did not condone the act and aimed to present a balanced view by allowing all involved parties to share their perspectives.

“Nakarating sa aming kaalaman ang saloobin ng ilang manonood na nagsasabing binibigyang-katwiran ng aming ulat ang ginawang pagpatay sa asong si Killua. Mariin po namin itong pinabubulaanan,” stated the program.

In their coverage, ‘KMJS’ ensured to include statements from Killua’s fur parent, the barangay watchman, and other witnesses to provide a comprehensive understanding of the incident.

Furthermore, the program reiterated its staunch opposition to animal cruelty and underscored the importance of promoting responsible pet ownership within society.

“Naninindigan ang KMJS na kailanman walang puwang ang animal cruelty sa ating lipunan. Maraming salamat po,” the statement concluded.

Upon review of the segment in question, diverse reactions were observed among viewers, with some expressing disapproval of the video while others condemned the killing of Killua.

The incident had garnered widespread attention on social media last month when the fur parent shared a distressing post after discovering their pet lifeless and bloodied in a sack. While the alleged animal offender claimed self-defense, CCTV footage shared by Killua’s caretaker depicted the perpetrator chasing and repeatedly striking the dog.
