Father burns eight puppies alive in savage revenge attack

Rescate y Adopciones Guadalajara posted distressing images of the inhumane attack.

Animal rights groups have demanded justice after a local man set fire to eight puppies because a stray dog bit his daughter outside their home in Guadalajara on Saturday.

The alleged offender, identified by the local press as Jonathan Canales, remains free but faces a heavy fine if convicted of the offense.

The incident reportedly occurred after the subject’s daughters tried to grab one of eight puppies in a vacant lot near their home in the city’s Tabachines de Zapopan neighborhood. This provoked the mother into biting one of the girls in a bid to defend her pups.

“The man was upset because the dog responded with aggression, so he went home, grabbed a barrel of gasoline and emptied it over the puppies,” reported Irma Basañez from Grupo Trust Protección Animal.

Another animal welfare group, Rescate y Adopciones Guadalajara, alleged that the offender first threw stones at the puppies and beat them against a wall before setting them ablaze in front of his daughters. Graphic photos published by Rescate y Adopciones show the charred corpses of the puppies and the mother’s vain attempt to rescue one of her young.

The mother was subsequently taken to an anti-rabies facility in Zapopan where it may be put down, but there were no reports of an arrest being made. Zapopan councilor Alejandrina Zambrano said on Monday that the offender faces a fine of up to 60,000 pesos (5,000 dollars) but claimed that the law does not allow for a prison sentence for such an offense.

News of the incident provoked outrage on social networks, where furious citizens shared the address of the alleged perpetrator and one person even called for his daughter to be lynched.

Animal cruelty is all too prevalent in Mexico, where stray dogs commonly roam the streets. Mexico City passed a new law in January 2013 that introduced tougher sentences of up to four years in prison for anyone caught intentionally harming animals in the capital.

    this man needs to be locked up before he gets mad at a human and sets them on fire. Don’t say it won’t happen cause he proved he could get so mad he gets out of control.

    You and that idiot of a judge are not true Mexicans because a true Mexican love animals. If you show your anger like that toward an animal imagine if your child or your wife ticks you off real good.
