Torres Palomino put forward that there will be a return to the old patterns of capture of dogs, “like who you like, the government will have to fajarse the pants, the municipal government and the state, or having real Centers of Canine Control on where you practice animal welfare”.
It is important that the authorities take this part and do not commit resources to campaigns promoted by actor Eugenio Derbez, who have not given results in their role, as well as the assistant attorney general’s office of Animal Protection, he said.
Generally considered that the main problem is the lack of a culture of animal welfare to have animals or pets in good physical condition and health, “the government themselves to be manipulated by personalities or people who say they are animal protectors that prevent the true purpose for which they were created centres-rabies or other spaces of animal care”.

“We forget the vaccination itself of the animals, nutrition, lack of food; the canes are irrational, but if you have need of hunger, as they are social animals are grouped in herds, don’t know if it’s a human or not.”
By instinct, he said, the dogs tend to attack if someone enters their territory, especially if it is unknown or alien, will defend ourselves, a situation which is not liable to any person or neighbor.
