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. please send this goofball to jail for a very long time. he knew damn well he did not supply enough food and shelter for these buffalo…so innocent animals once again due to the ignorance of subhumans have to die…..and yet the murderers/abusers will only get a slap on the hand…. I hope this creep never has a good day for the rest of his life. an eye for an eye….,your day will come and be ready to suffer the consequences.

  2. Please charge this complete idiot with animal cruelty. What an totally stupid uncaring person he is. I hope he’s never allowed to have animals again

  3. This is the epitome of gross negligence.
    God calls upon us to be stewards for his creations not to abuse them not to neglect them and not to kill them for sport.
    This man who neglected these animals is an abomination to our holy Father and should be punished to the full extent of the law!

    Isaiah 66:3 KJV

    “He who slaughters an ox is like one who kills a man; he who sacrifices a lamb, like one who breaks a dog’s neck; he who presents a grain offering, like one who offers pig’s blood; he who makes a memorial offering of frankincense, like one who blesses an idol. These have chosen their own ways, and their soul delights in their abominations

    Proverbs 12:10 KJV

    Whoever is righteous has regard for the life of his beast, but the mercy of the wicked is cruel.

    Esras 2 V61  Good Speed Apocrypha

    And I will not grieve over the multitude of those who perish; for it is they who are now like a mist, and are similar to a flame and smoke — they are set on fire and burn hotly, and are extinguished.” Therefore there shall not be grief at their destruction, so much as joy over those to whom salvation is assured.” 

  4. This lowlife scumbag needs to be euthanized!

  5. They need to show actual photos of the poor innocent animals abused and killed in these petitions!! Don’t sensor anything so the public can see what the MONSTERS out there are actually doing!!! Yes, it’s horrific to see, but THAT’S THE POINT AND IT MAKES AN IMPACT!!!! LOCK THESE POS’S UP!!!!!

  6. PLEASE prosecute to the fullest extent of the law! This pos deliberately abandoned innocent souls in confinement never to return. You’re a murderer to think these poor animals can scavenge for themselves in a confined area! NEGLIGENT AHOLE! UPHOLD THE LAW HERE!!!

  7. eleanor+dunkavich says:

  8. Pamela Chattergoon says:

    What took so long? Why did no one do anything until it was too late. These people need exterminated.

  9. Patrica+Birtles says:

    So sad the perpetrator deserves to rot .

  10. Veronica Figueiredo says:

    VERGONHA!!!!!! Put this BADTARD IN JAIL, where he belongs to AND LET HIM DIE IF THIRST and STARVATION!!! MONSTER!!!!

  11. Rose Coffey says:

    And just how long did he think the supply of food and water he left (if indeed he did leave it) would last if he was abandoning the herd and leaving for good. Yes, this guy needs punishment for what he did – he knew better. He just left and let these innocent animals there to starve.

  12. POS BASTARD!!! BURN IN HELL!!! PUT THIS MONSTER IN PRISON!!!

    Antônio Augusto Brandão de Aras, Attorney General of the Republic BRAZIL

    This a heartbreaking tragedy that the owner is responsible for. He should be charged and fined and must never come near another animal. For when will it STOP??

    These buffalos endured unspeakable agony. HE SHOULD PAY AND IMMEDIATELY!!!!

    Agree with Torah 100%!!!!!!

    Also do not protect his name!!!!

  14. Kill this cunt

  15. Showing reasonably healthy looking animals will not get the outrage this POS deserves. The public needs to see what goes on, what you are dealing with. Wondering what kind of animal protection laws they have in Brazil. Will these animals get justice??

  16. There is NO GOOD REASON FOR ANY ANIMALS TO BE STARVING AND EMACIATED IN THE UNITED STATES!!!

    • Wendy – Apparently, this incident took place in Brazil. However, there is no good reason for any animals to be starving and emaciated anywhere in the world, not just in the United States. Especially when they are caged without the freedom to find their own food…

  17. Antonio – When animals are caged they do not have the freedom to roam and find food; they are completely dependent upon their captors for sustenance. The São Paulo dairy farmer responsible for these buffalo knew damn well what kind of condition he left them in and this asshole needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent allowed under Brazilian law. Please show the world that Brazil values all Life, not just human Life. This bastard farmer belongs behind bars! Please!

  18. This is shocking and totally unforgivable. Ultimately, however, whether people like it or not, the only way to stop animals suffering on farms is for everyone to follow a vegan lifestyle. If people gave up consuming animal products – and goodness knows there are plenty of alternatives out there today, there would be no reason for scumbags like this to keep animals, much less abuse them. This horror took place in Brazil, but it’s the same the world over. When it comes down to animal welfare versus farmers’ profits, the poor animals always end up the losers. They always have and, as long as people provide a lucrative market for animal products, they always will. People who care about animals need to break this cycle. So let’s help the planet and help, especially, the animals with whom we share it by going vegan. Virtually every scientific report says the same thing – it’s the best thing you can do for the animals, the planet and for your own health.

  19. someone should starve this piece of crap. let him know the suffering those animals endured under his lack of care.

  20. TREAT THIS FARMER THE SAME WAY AS HE TREATED HIS ANIMALS. NO FOOD OR WATER AND IN THE COLD OR THE HEAT OF THE SEASON. NOT IN JAIL BECAUSE THERE HE WILL GET FOOD AND A LAZY AND EASY LIFE. NO MERCY WITH SUCH A MONSTER.
