A recent video posted by a Facebook page called Animals around the world has sparked outrage in the online environment. The shocking footage shows how a child severely mistreats a harmless puppy. The worst part of it all is the fact that the scene takes place in front of two adults, who fail to take the appropriate action.

According to comments in the feed, this heartbreaking incident took place in Mexico. A young boy can be seen peacefully playing with a small puppy. Everything seems to be fine until the boy turns the puppy upside down and throws him to the ground. The mother – whos is filming everything – warns the child to be careful, but effectively does nothing to intervene. Just a few moments after, the boy grabs the puppy and throws him to the ground yet again. The weeks-old puppy, visibly shacken up, is too scared to understand what is going on. Finally, another adult in the room intervenes and checks to see how the puppy is doing. This is how the video ends.

Unfortunately, when it comes to animal rights, Mexico has still a lot to do. Abuses towards animals still do not receive the attention they deserve from the revelant authorities and the laws are far too lenient and prevent real justice from being achieved. Abusers walk away with a slap on the wrist far too often and dog fights are still in full swing, despite repeated promises from the authorities that a crack down will be launched.

Support tougher animal welfare laws in Mexico and help ensure that such reckless parents will be held accountable for the actions of their children. Obviously, the boy in the video is too young to understand what is going on. This is why it is essential for the parents to act responsibly and intervene. If this does not happen, then laws need to come into force and sanction those parents. This is currently not happening in Mexico.

Help end all this senseless mistreatment of family pets and ensure those who fail to protect the voiceless will be held accountable! Support tougher animal welfare laws in Mexico now!
