A dog tied to a moving car was dragged several meters in Santa Cruz Xoxocotlán, State of Oaxaca, Mexico.
Although the date on which it occurred is not specified, on Monday Jan. 7th, the video went viral on social networks and the event generated outrage from animal protectors and society in general.
“What’s the matter with you woman”, recriminated a person who recorded the video and posted it on social networks, once the car stopped its march.
“I found it, I’m going to save it”, answered a woman who got off to pick up the animal, as she noticed she was being recorded.
– Is that saving her, ma’am?
-I’m rescuing her …
– But why are you dragging her this way lady!
-Because I do not know the dog, I’m going to rescue her …
-But why are you dragging around the poor animal with you car, can’t you see the dog is bleeding? Why don’t you get her into the car?
After that, the woman took placed the canine inside the car, a gray Toyota Corolla with MSD-4998 license plates from Oaxaca.
Meanwhile, organizations dedicated to animal protection denounced the case, that went viral on social networks, and activist Hilda Toledo Salinas regretted that the Attorney General’s Office does not address cases of animal abuse that have generated legal records.
In an interview, the animalist and president of the association Ayuda a Perro Amigo de Oaxaca (ApaOax), explained that this is not the first time this happens.

“It is common for people to do that to their dogs, under the excuse of “exercising” them,” Toledo said. “Unfortunately, there is no instance to deal with these cases, the Office of the Prosecutor has left this unattended. None of the cases that we have denounced, have proceeded … it is a real shame, ” the activist lamented.
She recalled that about two years ago it was the last time the animalists met with the prosecutor and at the meeting, the official promised to train public ministries on the subject of animal protection, but it never happened.
“Authorities do not support us, they don’t care about animals” she insisted. Finally, she also stressed that in the face of the current events, the animalists of Oaxaca are planning a meeting to protest and demand guarantees for the rights of animals in that state.
