Target: Jorge Fernandez Diaz, Minister of the Interior, Spain
Goal: Demand a heavier sentence for woman accused of running a shelter that euthanized over 2,000 animals in a slow and horrific manner to increase profits in Torremolinos, Spain.
Prosecutors are seeking a measly four-year sentence for a woman who is accused of torturing and killing thousands of cats and dogs. Police claim that Carmen Marin Aguilar would give pets a low dosage of a euthanasia drug in an improper manner so that she could save on costs. This would have resulted in the poor animals suffering long excruciating deaths just so she could save on drug and housing costs.
There is no chance that a person would have not noticed that there was a problem with the amount and way that the drug was administered. The animals would have writhed and howled in pain for hours. Investigators claim that the woman would disconnect security cameras and play loud music to mask the sound of the agonized animals, so that her crimes would go undiscovered. She is also accused of operating a veterinary clinic without having any certification. People entrusted an apparent fraud with the lives of their pets. She still denies these allegations and claims to love animals.
To cause so many animals such horrific deaths in such a calculating manner without the faintest hint of regret is unthinkable. If this woman is proved to have committed this crime, she deserves to be punished more severely than a four-year sentence, especially if she is pleading not guilty. Sign this petition to urge Spain to give her a heavier sentence to deter people from committing crimes of this nature.
Dear Minister Diaz,
As Minister of the Interior you oversee the National Police Force. Prosecutors are seeking a four year sentence in a case where Carmen Marin Aguilar is accused of torturing and slowly killing over 2,000 cats and dogs to save money. Investigators also claim that she fraudulently set up a pet clinic without certification. Surely giving her such a light sentence for such serious crimes emboldens other criminals to commit acts of cruelty and fraud for profit.
If this woman is found guilty, then she coldly administered a drug that would have made these animals suffer hours of agonizing pain before finally dying. She was entrusted with the wellbeing of these animals and she should be held responsible for what took place in her facility. I urge you to reevaluate the severity of the crimes that she is accused of and increase the punishment accordingly.
[Your Name Here]
