When the owner told the hacker the group is a non-profit that saves animals, the hacker had a change of heart.

"I love animals very much, I did not see that it is about animals. I would not do such a thing if I could,” the hacker told Malou Perez, founder of PAWSsion Project and owner of its Instagram account that got hacked.
