Punish Mexican Circus for Animals Allegedly Left to Die

tigers-by-greyloch

Target: Arely Gómez González, Attorney General of Mexico

Goal: Investigate the Mexican circus that may have abandoned its animals and left them to die and punish the circus if the allegations are proven to be true.

Mexican authorities recently found four camels, seven baboons, three dromedaries and six tigers left abandoned in cages in the Mexican state of Yucatan without food, water or any type of care. Twenty animals total were found to be left behind, and many were missing fur, teeth and claws from the horrible condition they were left in. 

Many of these innocent animals were also malnourished and starving and had medical problems like skin infections and scarring. There was a circus nearby who could have been responsible for abandoning these poor animals.

The abandonment may be linked to a new law that passed recently in Mexico banning animals from being used in circus acts. Luckily the animals were able to be rescued by officials, but the punishment for abandoning these animals could be fines of up to $225,000.

There is no excuse for leaving animals alone and left to die. Urge the Mexican government to investigate the nearby circus and find out if it abandoned these animals, and if so then punish the circus for its sickening crime.

There was a circus nearby who could have been responsible for abandoning these poor animals. There is no excuse for leaving animals alone and left to die. I urge you to investigate the nearby circus and find out if it abandoned these animals, and if so then punish the circus for its sickening crime.
