IMPORTANT NEWS FROM MEXICO: DOG’S REGISTRATION WILL BE MANDATORY AND THE SAD STORY OF VICTORIA THE DOG
As of May 1st, the Congress in Mexico City has approved some new changes to animal protection laws such as: mandatory registry of the animal and its owner in order to avoid abandonment. Mexican Health Department will be in charge of the records and information gathered from owners of cats and dogs who according to this law will be required to register their pets as soon as they get them. A chip will be implanted in the pet containing their owner´s name and address, vaccination history and sterilisation status.
The heartbreaking story of Victoria, a stray dog giving birth to her 8 puppies then set on fire by a man, caused a huge amount of indignation and complaints. This man is getting away with paying only a fine of 400 euros and no time in prison while, according to the law, the man is facing up to 5 years in prison and a fine of 1,800 to 3,000 euros. So, people are demanding the authorities to stick to the law and make necessary amendments to punish whoever dares to commit this type of crimes.
