In fact, although it may seem incredible or absurd to us, there are people who are so careless and negligent with their pets that they make us lose our sense of wonder.
In the town of Tabaida, in Tenerife, Spain, five puppies were found locked in a cave in a ravine without food or water.
The deplorable state in which they were found by the police authorities of the Civil Guard showed that the canines had been in such an unfortunate situation for some time; they were weak, literally in the bones and their bodies, but mainly their ears were mined by ticks.
The revealing images captured by the security forces show the quintet of dogs lying limp under the intense heat and inclement sun , characteristic of the summer on this Canary Island, which is located just south of Morocco.
The infection that had developed in their ears was a Dantesque spectacle , so the officers decided to act immediately, breaking down the fence that kept them isolated, took them in their arms and transferred them to the Albergue Comarcal Valle Colino , a protector of the area. , where they are being cared for and treated by specialized personnel.
“It is necessary for the citizen to denounce all kinds of animal abuse, that is not a custom, but rather that a culture is created, for being against the abuse of all kinds of animals, because they are beings that suffer and feel,” he said. the hostel spokesperson.
According to the information that has transpired, it seems that the dogs would be under the responsibility of a hunter in the area , who had already been identified and reported to the authorities, but there is still no resolution on his case.

Unfortunately, we humans continue to think that we are superior to the rest of the living beings . For the same reason, many people continue to treat their pets unworthily and leave them at their own risk, as if they were disposable objects, as if it were a blade of straw blowing in the wind.
It is difficult to understand that there are people so careless and selfish with their animals . But fortunately there are also people who are not like that, and they are the ones who should be celebrated and whose behaviors should be imitated. Everything is for the well-being of all the beings that populate this wonderful blue planet.
