UN Ruben Marrero Pernas (AKA: Woof the Zoosadist) Busted in Cuba - Justice and Karma Hath Come

What I found most interesting in Woof's faux-apology was how he established that dogs lived a rough life around him. They could be killed by neighbors or sickness due to lack of proper health care. So for all his talk about how much he supposedly loves dogs, he was exposed to a lot of dog death. This could have contributed to being desensitized to it before he started seeking out zoo porn, as dogs were apparently seen as disposable, in a sense.

This is obviously not an excuse for what he did, but a possible contributing factor in what might have lead him to do this in the first place. I also wouldn't be surprised if he suffered head trauma as a child or had a poor or abusive relationship with his parents.

I must admit, I am morbidly curious as to how somebody winds up doing things so horrible to poor little puppers.
I think that's something shared by a lot of us. I believe that woof that had either high functioning autism or a schizoidal personality disorder. He was hyper-introverted, either ignorant of or disinterested in social norms, and seemed to have unorthodox and deep interests that delve into the special interest territory.

For the latter, this includes animals, but it also seemed to include fascination for Nazi era Germany and period German military hardware, and he seems to have devoted a lot of time to making crib sheets for alt-history tanks and armaments.

The following is conjecture, and is based off of conversations with the leakers, inferences from broader research, and the confession.

I think woof initially got into this as a plain zoophile (as if such a thing could be considered 'plain') who was fascinated and disgusted by why people would be aroused by inflicting such cruelty on animals. He wanted to understand why this was a thing, and ended up finding people who were into it and getting zoosadist porn to try to investigate the phenomena and he may of initially been claiming he wanted to send these people over to the authorities. However, I think he a) was initially drawn to investigate this because he had a hitherto hidden proclivity towards sadistic sexual practices that he was either unconsciously or quasi-consciously exploring, and/or b) found himself overwhelmed and aforementioned sexual deviance indulged by the zoosadist porn, and decided to produce his own.

Pernas is a desperately lonely and weird man. His only substantive companions seem to have been animals throughout his life. I think he had no moral force or support network to stop him from retreating from the world and entering a vicious spiral of depravity - his job seems solitary, and his private life utterly dreary. So, with nothing around him, he just fell down the rabbit hole once he discovered that this initially disgusting thing was something he found himself aroused by.

I think woof was a landmine; if triggered just right, he would go off and indulge his deviances. What triggered this particular landmine was curiosity.

If there's a lesson to be learned from all of this, it's this: discover your own demons before looking into someone else's.

When my mom first got her beagle, he was just a little smaller than Karma. She likes to tell the story about how she was in the waiting room at her doctor's office, and he was so small that no one noticed him sleeping the whole time in her purse.

One day, he managed to corner my very large and very old black cat. The cat swatted at him, nicking his ear. Years later, that remains one of the worst sounds that I've ever heard. Justifiably terrified and bleeding from his ear, the pup was literally screaming. To him, something much larger than him had just hurt him.

The nick on his ear wasn't bad, though he still has a funny little scar on the tip of it where the fur splits. It was a minor injury, but I will never forget how scared he was or the sounds that he made.

That's nothing compared to what this absolute monster heard from that poor baby. Sounds that he was causing.

I actually can't even put into words what sort of punishment that I hope befalls him. Whatever it will be, it'll be too lenient for what he actually deserves.

I don’t believe for a second that Woof began as someone who didn’t already have an insidious desire to control or harm an innocent being, I believe this malicious, callous, and unsympathetic nature was something in him from the start.

I believe he took an interest in animals because they’re easy to obtain, restrain, and kill. As we can see, many countries view them even lower than property, many countries don’t even have laws against abusing them.

@Slimeball92A, thank you for your hard work. Will the puppy officially be known as Karma? I was wondering if they would use her image in some sort of animal protection or awareness program.
As far as the welfare people are concerned, it’s not official.

CEDA has a daily deluge of cases to deal with, so I am trying not to bother them while there is still a lot of stuff unresolved on top of that.

There are plenty of awareness campaigns going on, but I cannot comment on any plans they have.

If anyone is interested I can post a few (non distressing but sad) things to show what they are dealing with over there.

I’ll share something interesting from the translation of Hans Asperger’s 1944 paper “Autistic Psychopathy”

Autistic Psychpathy - Asperger 1944 (Frith translation) said:
“Sadistic traits are frequently reported. As an example, we mention some remarks of a seven-year-old boy with strongly autistic features: `Mummy, I shall take a knife one day and push it in your heart, then blood will spurt out and this will cause a great stir.' `It would be nice if I were a wolf. Then I could rip apart sheep and people, and then blood would flow.' Once, when the mother cut her finger, `Why isn't there more blood? The blood should run!' When he injured himself on one occasion, he was said to have been utterly thrilled, so that the doctor who tended the wound remarked on the child's state as extremely odd. At the same time, the boy was particularly anxious. He was afraid to fall over in his chair and extremely afraid of fast-moving vehicles on the road. There is also not infrequently a tendency to use obscene words which may stand in strange contrast to the otherwise often stilted language of these children. Thus, with the sexual aspect of affective life there is often a definite disharmony, either a weakness or precocity and perversion, but no harmonious monious integration of sexuality into the developing personality. The same is also true for other areas of affective life. Over-sensitivity and blatant insensitivity clash with each other.”
I believe another academic remarked on this but I can’t remember the location of the reference, suggesting young children make comments to which adults appear sadistic (autistic or not), such as “Daddy, you should be punished! I’m going to drive you really fast in a car without your seatbelt!” but is really a socially and emotionally immature way of expressing anger.

Being obsessed with stuff is also a feature of some young children (http://www.faculty.virginia.edu/childstudycenter/Planes trains and automobiles.pdf) and an Asperger kid is more likely to be obsessed with something weird, like blood. Which is why the unnamed boy described is just as thrilled with his own blood.

But what Asperger described isn’t sexual sadism and don’t think it’s useful to apply to woof, because who cares. But I thought that paragraph from Asperger was interesting given how these zoosadists furries like to be wolves.
I believe there is no simple explanation for why Woof dunnit. Likely a combination of already unlikely factors that come together, such as sexual sadism 9gets pleasure from causing pain, or seeing pain reactions), zoophillia (attraction to animals) and some kind of psychopathy (anything that made him value his own interests more than the dogs).

I remember when I was in high school in a class we had this aspie child. One day he decided to catch a fly and start pulling the wings off it and showing it to us. The teacher got angry at him and yelled at him to get out of the class. Meanwhile he's going: "it's just a fly, people kill flies all the time" and the teacher has to try to explain to him that he is causing unnecessary cruelty to a living thing regardless of if it were an insect or an animal and he just didn't get it.

Having empathy is a social trait and children are blank slates. They have to learn empathy. Some empathy comes naturally, while more complex issues need to be dealt with in a manner they can understand. "How would you like it if Johnny did that to you?" or "They can't help they way they are because of X reason and you need to understand that".

Having autism just makes the learning harder, and yes, some of them do come off as cruel. Even in regular conversation. They just don't realize it. There's either a disconnect or lack of understanding. But while some kids learn from their surroundings and experience, autistic kids have more hurdles to go through. It's a classic example of nature vs. nurture. Autism or not.

I think the dude just grew up seeing all the abuse and while he may have thought it was fucked up at first, eventually grew used to it, especially when he was exposed to it even more on the net. You really do get desensitized to certain messed up stuff, but most people have a threshold or deal with it in other ways (Doctor's humor is pretty dark, but it's how they cope).

One interesting and very dangerous sexual (read genetically sexual) deformity is Jacob's/XYY Syndrome, in that males will have an extra Y chromosome. This sexual deformity has many symptoms ranging from physical (very tall, acne) to mental (low IQ, high testosterone, anger issues often leading to sexual violence) that are present in some male serial killers. They often have their anger and sexual frustration turned onto female victims and while I can't remember the guy's name, he was a serial killer who was found to have XYY Syndrome. Thankfully, most XYY males can have this treated with hormone replacement therapy to balance out the testosterone with more estrogen and they can be pretty normal people.

God knows what is really going on with him, but we'll likely never know, and he'll die a violent death in prison or kill himself...

Hopefully this will come as a warning for many countries who have lax animal abuse laws or a complete lack of them.

If we are to believe the claim that the regular/routine mistreatment of pet dogs in his neighbourhood lead him to sexually abuse and later mutilate and torture them (something that has been proven to be a step before transitioning to humans) it’s a no-brainer that animal abuse should not be permitted. It makes sense to put laws in place so this isn’t seen as the “norm”, especially for children.

Perhaps we’ll see more countries enacting laws against bestiality and animal abuse in general.

Hence why I emphasised that he was either a very high functioning case or he was schizoidal. Either one of these in of themselves is insubstantial, but combine that with an underlying proclivity towards sexual sadism then they become part of the vicious cycle of isolation from sociocultural norms and from other humans in general. woof eventually regressed to virtually existing in an enclave of fantasy - I'm inclined to think these conditions played a causal role in that, especially with the comorbid traits Pernas exhibits.

I don't disagree. I think it merely was the case that he lied to himself about it right until he went off the deep end. I think he had a set of moral principles, once, from anecdotal data gathered from his old friends, but they were overwhelmed as he dug deeper and deeper.

The superego was subsumed by the id, as it were.

And yet, with or without laws, humans nearly universally despise sadists like this. We view their behavior as vile beyond belief.

The lesson learned is that being a sick fuck (a psychopath) is a severe genetic defect akin to the 'tism that makes you do heinous shit and anybody with a brain this broken, should be shot for the good of all mankind. Bullets are cheaper than pills, you know. :story:

The thing that shocked me the most was how many of these people are also pedophiles. Is this how sadistic child abusers come to be? Do they start off as zoophiles, progress to zoosadists, and then children inevitably get dragged into this mess?

Do many child sex abusers start off as zoophiles or zoosadists? Do zoosadists feel a sexual attraction to animals at all, or is it just the power they can hold over an individual viewed as property in the eyes of the law?

We’ve seen the link between “cub porn” and real-life child porn (and from there, child sex abuse)... can we claim that there is a definite link between cub porn, zoosadism, and CSA? It seems like cub porn or feral porn is a massive red flag and if you dig deep enough into the cesspit, the maggots come crawling out.
Do many serial killers start with animals? Degeneracy is a slippery slope, and degenerates create little hugbox cliques to egg each other on. Because they KNOW what they do is fucked up to the extreme, they gather together to pat themselves on the back, get some social reinforcement, and rape kids. How many times have you heard "It's not a sickness, it's natural, you're the bigot, not me" "I was born this way " and "It's not my choice, it's a sexual orientation"? These are the lies they tell themselves to excuse what they do. Oh, and they LOVE to recruit. That further reinforces their delusions, for when they can bring someone into the fold, to them it means that their degeneracy must lie beneath everyone's surface and it's just waiting to come out.

Yes.

Jeffery Dahmer is an obvious example.
Jeffery Dahmer never hurt or killed live animals, he only dissected roadkill ones. That being said, abuse to animals is an extremely common trait with serial killers and killers in general.
I remember reading the FBI takes an interest in cases of sadism, especially sadistic animal abuse because it's the most reliable indicator that they're a potential serial killer.

here is a translation for the El Nuevo Herald article:

Man denounced for allegedly sodomizing and torturing pets in Cuba.

An ex-employee from the Polo Científico in La Habana allegedly sodomized and tortured dogs, according to a complaint made by the Cubans in Defense of Animals, which reached the authorities of his workplace.

According to the complaint, the man identified as Rubén Marrero Pernas, 29 years old, dedicated himself to sharing images and videos of himself in a zoophile website known as Beast Forum. In this footage Pernas was shown to rape and torture the animals, as reported by the OnCuba magazine.

According to the complaint, "the magnitude of the brash exsposition" of Marrero provoked other members of the zoosadist page to share his posts.

a group of over 50 animal activists began to trace the posts in order to track the identity of the user who hid under the Woof, Warg, Schwarz, Wolfss, Ulfr and Shwarzweiler, according to the report.

This is how they managed to hone in on Marrero, who resides in the capital municipality of San Miguel de Padrón. According to the CEDA platform, Marrero adopted a puppy in April and "tortured, mutilated, raped and killed days later in a way that is hard to believe that a human being is even capable of".

On their part, the Neuroscience Center of Cuba has published on its Facebook page that Marrero was separated from the Institute "Once his illicit and repugnant activities were known and verified".

"This detestable conduct are incompatible with the values of the sector. The information regarding this incident has been passed on to the competent authorities in order for them to proceed with further action".

OnCuba magazine contacted the director of the Neuroscience Center of Cuba, Mitchel Valdez, who confirmed the dismissal.

El Nuevo Herald was unable to contact Rubén Marrero Pernas.

Cuban laws currently do not contemplate an animal protection law, or any law that may fall under the umbrage of this incident. CEDA has requested in reiterated occasions without much success to propose an animal protection law for the constitutional reform currently underway in the island, which will be voted on the 24th of February.

A friend told me that the other option would be the Dangerousness Law, in which a person is tried for a crime that they haven’t yet committed but is likely to commit.
From the Havana Times article.
According to Google, this is generally used for government dissenters, but it seems to be a catch-all for many kinds of social degeneracy (God bless you crazy communists) and can land you four years in prison or "re-education", which I hope means what it sounds like. It also means you have to stay under national police surveillance.
