Mexico City To Slap Animal Abusers With Prison Time.

2 Jan

Happy New Year Everyone 🙂

Let’s start this year with some good news coming out of Mexico, shall we?

I was super happy when I came across this because I love Mexico and I love animals. Mexico gets trashed here in The States because of this whole, ‘War On Drugs’ situation. But in actuality, Mexico is a vibrant, colorful country full of beautifully warm, hospitable people. Rich in tradition, culture and heritage, Mexico truly is an amazing country and Mexico City is truly an awesome city.

Adding to the awesomeness is the fact that Mexico City’s law makers have recently approved prison terms for those who choose to abuse animals. Prior to this, animal cruelty was considered a civil offense so there was no jail time just a fine. This new law was voted in unanimously by the legislature assembly, everyone agreed that the current administrative laws do not do enough to help end animal cruelty.

Animal abusers will now get up to 2 years in prison and a $500 fine, if they kill the animal they will get up to 4 years in prison and a $2000 fine. In addition to animal cruelty, they also addressed animals that are killed for food. In the later instance, the animal must be killed quickly, in a painless fashion.

A Step In The Name Of Love, Is Always A Step In The Right Direction…
