FOR A PIECE OF MEAT

ACT 1774 SHOULD NOT BE A DEAD LETTER
In 2016, was approved by the President of the Republic Act 1774, which declared the animals, sentient beings, and that as an achievement of the movement is animalistic, set exemplary penalties for abusers of animals, up to and including prison, for those who violate the rights of the furry friends both.
Because of this, it has been increasing the visibility of cases of animal abuse, but still, according to the animalist, he has not complied with the law fully. With this case, we seek a punishment exemplary, according to Isaza.
“The Law 1774 2016 brings as a penalty for cases of child abuse and animal cruelty, which is not only physical abuse, but also emotional, brings a prison sentence of 1 to 3 years or a fine of 5 to 60 legal minimum wages in force, the idea is that in this case drop the full weight of the law, you have to understand that they are not things, since the same law has been declared sentient beings, they suffer, they are part of many families, a pet is very important within the family,” explained the lawyer.
