Mistreatment of animals, unfortunately, continues to be a problem present everywhere, regardless of social class. Throughout 2012, we witnessed different acts of violence and absurd injustice against defenseless animals, which came to revolt the country and make headlines in printed and televised newspapers.
Today, there are already specific laws inside and outside Brazil against mistreatment of animals which, despite being considered a crime, do not prevent many people from acting with violence and neglect against dogs and cats.
