Addressed to Local deputies

Animal abuse must be considered serious crime, the government must act now with a new law, and when it came the time of the new law, the justice and the police must enforce it.

The cases of death with sadism are too many.

Animals, as horses and donkey, are exploited terribly, even when they have terrible state of health, we must act now to stop this!
