Cancun, Q.R. — A man has been arrested and five dogs seized after social medial reports of animal abuse. On Tuesday night, Cancun police arrived at the address of the home in SM 74 where they seized one adult dog and four puppies.
According to the State Attorney General in a Wednesday statement, the rescue and subsequent arrest was made by agents of the Investigation Police in coordination with state and municipal authorities after an official complaint was filed.
From the home, police rescued a female Siberian Husky and four puppies and proceeded to arrest Kevin Andrei “N” “for his probable participation in the crime of resistance by individuals.”
“Based on the complaint made by citizens and through the social networks of the Huellitas Alemán Foundation, where they requested the intervention of Governor Mara Lezama to rescue the canine and the puppies, this social representation initiated an investigation for the crime committed against the environment and fauna in which the mistreatment of a pet that was tied up in the rain at a home in Supermanzana 74 was exposed,” the FGE reported.
“In response to this request, elements of the Investigative Police interviewed a person named Kevin Andrei at the aforementioned place, who was invited to untie the animal and bring it into the house since it was raining, however, he argued that he would not agree because the dog was being punished. When he became aggressive, he was arrested.”
The female and her four puppies were seized and taken to the facilities of the Animal Protection and Welfare Directorate for their protection, evaluation and care.
