Despite the fact that, so far this year the Municipal Police has received 221 reports of animal abuse, staff of the corporation are not applying penalties for a lack of knowledge on the Side of Police and Good Government, pointed out members of the protective association of animals, «They are the reason”.
Daniela García Salgado, a spokeswoman for the group, mentioned that officers of the Municipal Public Safety (DSPM), they have stated that they can’t apply any penalty because they have not delivered the ballot of infringement.
«The fine can be 25 to 50 minimum wages, translated into pesos, we would be speaking from 2 thousand to 4 thousand pesos, approximately, if these 221 reports had been fined the minimum the City would have collected around 400 thousand pesos,’ he said.
Increase reports of abuse
«Through our website, the people told us that when you report a case, the Police does not apply any sanction because they do not realise that animal abuse is considered to be on the Side of Police,” he said.
He added that the reports are increasing and it is regrettable that the Police is not acting; this discourages a lot of people to continue denouncing it because they think that nothing is happening.
Garcia Salgado mentioned that the majority of reports are of dogs that were tied up for days without food, some even have the chain incarnate, cases of malnutrition and extreme animals that are beaten by their owners.
According to the data provided by the C–4, the area with the greatest number of reports for animal abuse is the colony 89, however, there have also been multiple cases in the colonia Jalisco, Rainbow, Portico of the Sea and Villas, among others.
