Our furry friends enrich our everyday life and offer unconditional love, so all of us who have felt their love and enjoy their company will take up arms if they see them being mistreated.
However, one of the biggest victims of animal cruelty are the strays who have no one to care for them, and they are being abused without being lucky enough to be saved on time.
Animal lovers were completely enraged and horrified after pictures of a poor little dog from Teloloapan, Mexico depicting his brutal confinement and torture under the scorching sun went viral.
The pictures of the unfortunate puppy tied on a short leash to a window in the devastating heat broke the hearts of many, and they demanded that a strong punishment be given to the owners.
Cesar, can you call the police? It would carry a lot of weight if they heard from you. Thank you!

It has been kept dangled on a very short chain during the entire day, so he couldn’t stand or move around, and he was left on his hind legs.
Its alleged “owners” live in the neighborhood of Emiliano Zapata in Teloloapan, Mexico, and the dog’s sufferings meant nothing to them, as they claimed that the “it is doing fine” and his “welfare” is being taken care of.
Yet, the brutality horrified concerned strangers who passed by the tortured dog, and one of them approached the dog’s owners directly and started begging them to surrender the poor animal.
Yet, they chased him away. He did manage to take photos of the poor sight and spread the news.

Numerous people were worried that the poor puppy might strangle himself as a result of the huge pain it suffers, and the terrifying pictures left them frustrated and restless.
I’m not going to comment on this too much as it’s an open case but to say that this is why we are pushing for #FinnsLawPart2
Contact your MP, @DefraGovUK and @michaelgove and tell them our animals need that increased sentencing. #animalwelfarematters https://t.co/BraQqYzD6F

Moreover, animals with heavy layers of fur face a lot more difficulties to adapt to heat than people.

Yet, animal lovers hope that local authorities and animal activists have managed to rescue the dog before it died.

Unfortunately, this case is not the only time when animals, and especially dogs, are tortured on a daily basis, and crimes against animals are rampant all over the world.
If you saw your neighbour beating their dog you’d call the police
If you saw your neighbours car being broken in to you’d call the police
If your hear abuse next door you need to call the police- it’s no different

Dogs are our best friends, and they trust us with their lives, so we should at least respect them and treat them kindly. Such stories remind us that we need to stand up for our friends, and stop ignoring the violence upon these innocent creatures.
