In Mexico, a million pets are being abused by beatings, neglect and poor nutrition, among other abuses, so it is necessary to equate these actions with the crimes of rape, injury, murder and abandonment, to specify the various sanctions that correspond to each act.
Not only physical, but also the conditions in which they live, are reported because some of them are in the rooftop, in backyards without cleaning, or no vaccines.
Today sanctions are economic and these are calculated through the daily fines. In Peru there is no law to punish animal abuse as a crime under the Criminal Procedure Code.
Mexico public servants whose cruelty to a black bear was shared on social media have been fined amid public outrage. Black bears are bouncing back in Mexico after being hunted to near-extinction 40 years ago.
