Over 1,000 Buffalo Reportedly Found Emaciated and Starving Deserve Justice

Target: Antônio Augusto Brandão de Aras, Attorney General of the Republic, Brazil

Goal: Bring allegedly abusive São Paulo dairy farmer to justice.

When the veterinarian in charge of emergency care for a herd of over 1,000 buffalo arrived at the abandoned dairy farm, he called it “a war scene.” Environmental police responded to reports of “malnourished and mistreated animals” allegedly and counted 667 trapped in a confined area, along with countless carcasses. The rescue efforts are still ongoing, but over 500 of these poor animals have apparently died from starvation so far.

Rescuers stated they found buffalo with sunken features and protruding bones who were too weak to stand, and some that had to be lifted up with the aid of heavy machinery in order to be examined and cared for. Others reportedly fell and never stood back up. Over 500 apparently died where their starving counterparts stood living among the dead. It is too soon to say how many more buffalo may die from their condition, already too far gone to save.

When asked about the conditions at his farm, the owner claimed he did nothing wrong. Stating he had left plenty of food and water for the buffalo he abandoned, he suggested that some died from natural causes.

There is apparently nothing natural about the way these emaciated buffalo died. There is no excuse that could justify the suffering that the farm owner apparently inflicted on his animals, who depended on him and earned him a good sum of money in the dairy business.

The farmer has already been fined with environmental infractions, but civil police have not yet brought charges. Sign below and demand that authorities conduct a thorough investigation and charge him to the fullest extent with animal cruelty.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney General Brandão de Aras,

Over 500 buffalo have died surrounded by their starving compatriots on an apparently abandoned dairy farm in your jurisdiction. Reports indicate that several were too weak to stand when veterinarians finally arrived to provide emergency care, and that more continue to die, already too far gone to save regardless of relief provided.

These animals were seemingly mistreated and malnourished, living skin-and-bones, and the farmer who reportedly abandoned them must be brought to justice and charged to the fullest extent with animal cruelty.

This farmer had the audacity to say that he did not do anything wrong and provided the animals with sufficient food and water. The evidence seems to speak directly against this claim.

Please, charge this man for his alleged severe animal cruelty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. I will never understand how humans can be so nasty as to leave living, breathing animals to fend for themselves. When the initial food and water was gone, what the hell did the “owner” think would happen? No animal deserves to die of starvation. I hope this human “monster” will live in prison for the rest of his life.

  2. Kathleen Scherman says:

    Yea this POS needs to be dropped off bear ass naked in the middle of a desert and see if he can survive!!! They need to make this a felony, I would prefer murder and total neglect. But this FU justice system won’t do a thing!! Pretty soon even the nice people are going to start action against this kind of scum!!!

  3. Nancy Chiodo says:

    This subhuman doesn’t deserve any mercy. He willingly allowed these poor animals to die in the most inhumane way possible. Prison time for 15 years or more. If he is released then force him to give any and all assets to an animal rescue!

    • NOT IN PRISON. THAT COST ALOT OF MONEY TO THE COMMUNITY AND THEN HE GETS FREE FOOD AND WATER AND HAS NOTHING TO DO. PUT HIM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ARIZONA DESERT WITH NOTHING AN LET HIM DIE SLOWLY AS HE DID TO HIS ANIMALS. NO MERCY.

  4. Evan Jane Kriss says:

    This is egregious animal neglect and abandonment, and the owner must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. If you own animals, you have a moral and ethical obligation to ensure they are properly cared for; if you’re unable or unwilling to do so, you have a moral and ethical obligation to surrender them to an individual or an organization that can. To just walk away from animals that depend on you for their survival is UNCONSCIONABLE AND UNACCEPTABLE.

  6. Michelle Stewart says:

    That bastard deserves to be executed

    • Annette & Jeff Patrone says:

      We feel so angry and so sad..there’s no words but when you say executed we felt compelled to say No..no way that’s too easy. THIS unspeakable act of cruelty by this despicable human garbage MUST PAY dearly!!! He took so many lives in such an awful way…Karma is coming MF!!
      WE SUGGEST and STRONGLY WANT TO SEE THIS P.O.S. DO PRISON TIME WITH NO FOOD OR WATER. period!!..NOW THAT WOULD BE SOME JUSTICE.

  7. Patricia Orlando says:

    Dont have animas if you cannot look after them. Dont just leave them to starve. Just for this madness.

  8. Execution is the best remedy for this bastard!

  9. This is so horrible to even imagine. That stupid, careless farmer dererves the death penalty for this cold blooded murder of so many animals. What a disgusting monster. I’m glad at least some of the poor animals have been rescued.

  10. DEATH PENALTY FOR THE INHUMAN BASTARD!!!!

  11. This human filth must be HARSHLY PUNISHED and FORBIDDEN from ever coming near animals again! This is MORALLY SHOCKING!
    MAX JAIL or DEATH PENALTY!

  12. If nothing is done, it really reflects on the country.

  13. Julia Edinger says:

    I TOTALLY AGREE WITH Annette & Jeff Patrone
    “We feel so angry and so sad..there’s no words but when you say executed we felt compelled to say No..no way that’s too easy. THIS unspeakable act of cruelty by this despicable human garbage MUST PAY dearly!!! He took so many lives in such an awful way…Karma is coming MF!!
    WE SUGGEST and STRONGLY WANT TO SEE THIS P.O.S. DO PRISON TIME WITH NO FOOD OR WATER. period!!..NOW THAT WOULD BE SOME JUSTICE.”
    DEATH PENALTY FOR SUCH HORRIBLE HORRIBLE SUFFERING ,,,,, SOO VERY SAD CRYING FOR GOD’S PRECIOUS ANIMALS…….

  14. Kathleen+I+Nagy-DeRosa says:

    He did nothing wrong to those innocent animals? Really? I think he meant he did nothing right by the herd. This is a despicable display of nothing but neglect and intent to do harm. HE ABANDONED THEM…PERIOD. Is he dumb enough to believe that these Buffalo would just run out to the store to get some food when this POS’s rations were gone? Or does he believe that the authorities are dumb enough to believe his lies? This jerk needs to not only be punished for his dirty deed, but he needs to pay for the vet care and food bills for the ones that haven’t yet succumbed to starvation. One year in jail for each innocent life lost because of this SOB for starters. Absolutely disturbing and disgusting.

  15. THIS IS PURE EVIL AND SHOULD BE PUNISHED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW!

    • Problem is the fullest extent in countries like that and even the United States is petty fines and slaps on the wrists.. What needs to happen is laws need to change. Trump made it a felony for animal abuse but the states actually need to enforce it. I do lobbying to help animal rights and help change laws but more people than me and the few people who do it need to participate to make the changes happen!!!

  16. Shirley Lemieux says:

    It is always baffling how any human being could just abandon an animal especially in a confined area and expect them to survive. With such a large herd of animals abandoned and left to starve to death, which many did, I would expect that Sao Paulo will have hundreds of counts of animal abuse and neglect. I would love to be informed of the outcome of this case because Sao Paulo deserves to be locked away and forgot about.

  17. ALL YOU PEOPLE INVOLVED ARE DISGUSTING, DISGRACEFUL EXCUSES FOR HUMAN BEINGS. YOU KNOW HOW CRUEL, WICKED AND EVIL THIS IS, BUT YOU CONTINUE WITH YOUR ACTION. SHAME ON YOU AND YOUR COUNTRY.
    DISGUSTING, IS BEING VERY POLITE. YOUR KARMA WILL FOLLOW YOU AS YOU MADE IT, I WOULDNT WANT TO BE YOU….EVER. ANIMALS COULD TEACH US HOW TO LIVE, RESPECT AND CARE FOR ALL BEINGS BUT YOU OBVIOUSLY CANT EVEN RECOGNISE THAT, YOU STUPID, GREEDY, FOOLISH `HUMANS`.

  18. Maureen Kelly says:

    WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE??????? This jackoff should be thrown in jail and left to starve!!! Disgusting POS!!

  19. Wanmai Pailin says:

    Poor cows looks like the just came from hell!
    The owner must be charge for this cruelty and abuse to poor cows.
    Hundreds of cows have died from starvation because of him and I hope the remaining survived cows will recover and have plenty to eat to become healthy again.
