The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – A Costa Rican Court has imposed a sanction against a person that risked an animal’s welfare with dog fighting. Now this man is required to pay ¢105,000 and must commit to “not make prejudice against any animal or conduct himself against the animal’s welfare, including, fights, abandonment, physical abuse or anything similar “.
To SENASA, this statement brings an implicit message to the population towards preventing animal abuse and ultimately the culture of animal rights and recognizes Dr. Allan Sanchez Mora, Director of the Metropolitan Region SENASA, who was commissioned to address this case.
This ruling is considered a fair result of the hard work undertaken by both SENASA as well as international organizations cooperating and promote animal welfare.
In December 2012, SENASA attended a complaint about a person who was promoting dog fighting in San Jose.
The defendant was forced to recognize the acts for which he was denounced in front of the judge and committed to respect the provisions of SENASA.
