Fury Spreads In Puerto Rico Pet Massacre

Taken from another forum:

Quote:
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — The fury over the massacre of dozens of seized dogs and cats in Puerto Rico has gone global.

Thousands of people from Puerto Rico and around the world have signed an online petition calling on the governor of the U.S. Caribbean territory to ensure those who hurled some 80 pets off a highway bridge last week are brought to justice.

Nadia Donato, a 39-year-old New Yorker, said Wednesday an Associated Press story that appeared Friday about the slaughter of the dogs and cats drove her to tears — and to launch the petition drive.

A local activist will deliver the list of names and messages to Gov. Anibal Acevedo Vila's residence in San Juan during a demonstration on Sunday, Donato said.

The petition's Web site lists more than 6,000 signatures. Many who signed are from Puerto Rico, but signatures also appear from such far-flung countries as Finland, Argentina, Malaysia and Australia.

Thanks for the update, I'm still so upset about this, I hope that they bring those people to a swift and sure justice and not just a slap on the wrist

So.... we woke up today to the news that one of the housing complex had security cameras, which had videos, with name of the complex, time and date and the mayor of barceloneta watching while his employees dragged the pets to the animal control solution vans... I sooo hope that they press charges!

I'm still so sick about this, I signed the petition via computer plus left a personal message. I just can't comprehend how someone can do such a thing, I don't know how we make these people
