Javier Zamorano, veterinarian and deputy commissioner, spoke with ‘T13’ and assured that they are on the trail of the puppy’s abuser. “The abuse is against people, but against the animal, it could be zoophilia, and falls within the Penal Code as the crime of abuse”, He emphasized.
“The crime of animal abuse has been in the Penal Code since 89. What the Tenure Law did was increase the penalties by one degree if the animal dies. The old article, the one from the year 89, sanctioned animal abuse as the person who mistreated or made the animal suffer, but in the Tenure Law, the ‘Cholito Law’ that people know, it also included abandonment “, explained Zamorano.
