He even assured that these planting chemicals have also affected other species, whose smell is perceptible in the area. “Birds of the place have died like birds, since they eat the poison and die; the preparation is harmful to health since a stench is perceived within the area that irritates the eyes and causes discomfort in general, ”she warned.
This act of animal abuse has already been denounced (folio 2808) by the neighbors before the Attorney for Environmental Protection of the State of Mexico (Propaem) and the municipal authorities in order to investigate the facts and do justice, since the death of dogs in the area has been constant in recent months.

They also requested that the Health Directorate of the municipality of Almoloya de Juárez support the collection of contaminated waste.
This complaint was released a day after a former police officer from the Secretariat of Citizen Security (SSC) of Mexico City was arrested for having killed a dog named “Scooby” last weekend in Tecamac, Edomex, after he he threw it into a saucepan with boiling oil.
According to the owner of a butcher shop, the subject, identified as Sergio “N”, did it to intimidate him into closing his business for extortion.
Reminder: in the State of Mexico animal abuse is typified.
