Neighbors point out the lack of sensitivity of the State Attorney General’s Office (FGE) to take into account the direct reports that the population passes on about situations that arise with animals that remain inside secured houses.
Residents who live on 20th Avenue, between 11th Avenue and 9th Street in the Centro neighborhood, very close to where a homicide occurred last Monday, claimed that on two occasions they have reported to 911 the presence of two dogs that remained on the property’s backyard, and since then, their howls and cries have not stopped.
“We already reported it to 911, it took us a little time to be attended because they didn’t answer the calls. Since the day of the homicide, the two dogs left the house in an unknown direction due to the noise of the shots, we don’t know when they came back, maybe when the authorities were still doing their job, but they left, closed the doors, the gates, and placed the seals.”
They commented that the next day and the following days, they began to hear the cries and howls of the two dogs, who are in the backyard.
“It’s distressing to hear them, we’re very afraid to throw them something to eat because we don’t know how prudent or imprudent it can be, although we admit that we haven’t left things like that, we’ve thrown them food, but it’s necessary for the Animal Control Center to come and rescue the dogs because we don’t know how long the house will remain secured.”
They commented that 911 asked them to go to the FGE to report and expedite coordination with the Animal Control Center, as a process is required for inspectors to access the secured house to rescue the dogs.
“It’s very regrettable that there is no responsibility and sensitivity on the part of the authorities to protect two living beings. It’s not fair that just because they are animals, authorities don’t care about this important part, because if they saw them inside the property before securing it, they should have asked if someone or a neighbor could take care of them and not leave them to die inside.”
