Abandoned Dog Who ‘Died of a Broken Heart’ Deserves Justice

Target: Rodolfo Hernández Suárez, Mayor of Bucaramanga, Colombia

Goal: Find and punish the person responsible for the cruel abandonment and subsequent death of a pet dog at the Bucaramanga airport.

A pet dog was left at the Bucaramanga airport for four weeks, and died waiting for her owner to return. The dog—called ‘Nube Viajera,’ which means ‘Traveling Cloud’—eventually stopped eating, and vets determined that the cause of her death was depression. Locals reportedly tried feeding her from time to time, and the airport tried to give her medical treatment, but eventually Nube Viajera stopped eating altogether, and died in the terminal where she had been abandoned.

A vet from the Colombian Animal Protection Foundation said about Nube Viajera, “The hypothesis we have is that a traveller abandoned it. Apparently, during the first month that the dog was at the airport, it was going through the halls looking for someone, possibly the owner. That state of waiting deteriorated its health, to the point that she no longer received food.” This neglectful and cruel treatment of a defenseless dog, who was loyal to the end and died as a direct result of her abandonment, must not be allowed to pass unnoticed. Sign below to demand justice for Nube Viajera.


Dear Mayor Suárez,

An innocent pet dog died at the Bucaramanga airport, where she was abandoned by her owner and left alone for over a month. The dog, called Nube Viajera, roamed the airport terminal for four weeks awaiting the return of her owner. Devastated, she eventually stopped eating and ultimately died of her depression.

This cannot be allowed to stand. This dog’s death was a direct result of human cruelty and neglect and a needless tragedy. I urge you to ensure that the person responsible is found and held accountable for their actions and the death of this innocent creature.

  1. Agree all above


    Poor sweetheart, you just don´t do this to mans best friend.

  3. Poor baby….so sad ….too bad there wasn’t someone there capable of giving her the love she needed….there are only very few humans who are good with animals and really understand them….most humans are ignorant and incapable! So many things could have happened to this dogs owner….maybe they died or were abducted or sent to jail, but most likely they were a slim ball who ditched the dog because they did not want it any longer….the scenario that unfortunately is the common case!!!

    Keep us updated on whether the owner is found……and what the status is in regards to punishment

  5. Carol Brandt says:

    I am troubled at the official kept referring to her as it. Perhaps that’s just a dog’s life in Colombia. Regardless, I wish there was a way of punishing the owner, but this will probably have to be a case where he answers to God for what he did.

  6. KatWrangler WELCH says:

    SO this poor pup wandered around the airport FOR FOUR WEEKS!
    And NO ONE stepped up to help her? MAybe the authorities were waiting to see if her owner was returning. But FOUR WEEKS!

    We have cats, and there’s NO WAY I could watch this.
    I hope Karma finds and deals this heartless POS bastard exactly what they deserve.

    R.I.P. Nube Viajera You deserved better </3
