Saltillo, Coahuila.- The spokesperson of the foundation Louigy, association for the protection of animals, Haydee Diocelyn Otero Pérez, stressed that it would be easier to report animal abuse, and require compliance with the laws for any person who applies violence against an animal as it can trasender the abuse to another person, even up to murder her.
Thanks to the creation of the office of the Prosecutor Specialized in Investigation of Crimes against the Life, Integrity and Dignity of Animals.
“We’re very happy because Coahuila is very advanced in this topic of animal protection; there are laws that you are not allowed to sell animals on the street, bullfighting is also prohibited, even there are sanctions against people who commit crimes –animal abuse-, but it lacked that extra, to meet up to 100%”.
“If the government already did its job, now we as citizens have to denounce that kind of stuff and the Office us is going to help because before you could see that he committed a crime and it was very hard that the police or the Public Ministry will make the case”.
The special Prosecutor also will be in charge of preventing, investigating and punishing the violations of the rights of animals.
“A person who mistreats animals, it may be a killer in power”, he said; in the same way can be a offender in power.
“If we foster the culture of caring for and protecting the animals, we will be responsible people and good… if there are no penalties someone is going to keep killing animals or making them other things and is going to replicate, and that is what we want to avoid”, he said.
