Listen to the interview with Silvia Madrazo, owner of Keira

Keira, a doberman of only 3 years, died Monday by ingesting grass with poison in a park of Portugalete. Silvia Madrazo, its owner, filed a complaint yesterday at the City Council for her death.

It all started last Friday, as Madrazo has said today in Hoy por Hoy Bilbao. The woman took her dog for a walk in the area known as El Hoyo, in La Florida park, next to a friend and her dogs. There several people alerted him that there could be sausages with pins inside, so they both took their pets out of the park.

The place where they fought pit bulls in Brazil – Latin America – International – Health Insurance

In Mairiporá, rural area of ​​São Paulo (Brazil), international fights of pitbull dogs were carried out. These are events with a large organization and have been carried out in other countries of the world. As reported by the AFP news agency, last year the organization operated in the Dominican Republic.

The macabre scene found by the police officers who were part of the operation came to impress Matheus Laiola, commissioner of the Parana Civil Police, who said that in his 13 years in the public force « he had never seen anything like that ».

The commissioner explained that, in unfortunate conditions, the dogs fought among themselves and on the premises bets were made by the winner. It is even mentioned that the fights were transmitted and could also bet from other countries.

The pit bulls, Laiola reports, were trained and they were not given water or food for days, that in order to « be more stressed when fighting. »

Following an anonymous complaint, officers were able to identify the farm in Mairiporá, where the fights were taking place. Upon arrival, police found injured and dead dogs. Some were dying, Laiola said.

Officers found several dead and injured dogs.


Paraná AFP Civil Police

One of the most macabre images, according to the commissioner’s statements recorded by AFP, was the body of a pit bull that was being roasted to eat, something that the commissioner described as « a horror scene ».

One of the detainees is a veterinarian who was trying to revive a pit bull to fight again that same night.

In the operation last weekend 41 people were arrested, including a Mexican, an American (who officiated as a referee of the fights) and a Peruvian. Now, Laiola explained, it is investigated how much money was moving in these types of events.

AFP said that during the capture, 47,000 reais (a little less than 40 million pesos) were found and that one of the pit bulls was being sold for fights for a price of 200,000 reais (263 million pesos).

The charges for which the detainees will be charged are those of organization for crime, animal abuse and gambling practices.

Several countries in the world have already adopted certain public policies, laws and sanctions to eradicate animal abuse. In Colombia, Law 1774 of 2016 penalizes those who harm animals with their acts.

In the article It is established that animals are ‘sentient beings’ and attempt against them would mean fines of up to 60 current legal monthly minimum wages and up to 36 months in prison.

Wolves play ball with humans for the first time – Health Insurance

J. de J.




There are few diversions more genuine than that of a dog that collects and returns a ball thrown by its owner. Until now, it was believed that the ability to interpret human social cues, such as those required by a search game like that, were acquired by dogs after their domestication at least 15,000 years ago. However, an experiment conducted with wolf cubs has completely surprised scientists. The wolverines were able to play ball with unknown humans as naturally as a labrador or a poodle. The unexpected results, published in the magazine « iScience », indicate that the specimens that demonstrated this property could be the ones chosen by humans to have them as a company, features that were later enhanced in dogs.

The wolverine «Flea», from a litter with which researchers experiment – Christina Hansen Wheat

The findings were made by chance when Hansen Wheat, a researcher at the University of Stockholm (Sweden), and his team worked with thirteen wolverines from three different litters to evaluate various behaviors. In one of those tests, an experimenter whom the puppy does not know throws a tennis ball in a room and, without the benefit of any previous experience or training, encourages the animal to pick it up and bring it back.

The researchers did not expect the wolverines to know how the game worked. In fact, the first two litters they worked with showed little or no interest in the ball, much less recover it. However, in the third litter, three eight-week-old puppies not only went for the ball, but also responded to the stranger’s signals and brought them back.


« When I saw the first wolf cub retrieve the ball, I literally got goosebumps, » Hansen acknowledges. «It was very surprising, nobody expected it. And it was especially surprising that the wolves recovered a ball for a person they had never seen before, ”he emphasizes.

The finding has important implications in understanding how dogs were domesticated, and in the selective pressures to gather beneficial traits in them. This directed play behavior, which was believed to have arisen in dogs after domestication, may have already been found in wolves. Precisely, the wolf cubs that showed it could have been chosen as a company for humans, a feature that would also be a selective advantage in the early stages of dog domestication.

The team will continue to work with the data it has collected over three years raising wolves and dogs in identical conditions to learn even more about their differences and similarities in behavior.

My  » breeder  » couldn’t sell me because he said he looked « weird. » The huskies are majestic looking dogs and I don’t know why I don’t look like them. I wish I was beautiful for someone to want me to be their dog. I like other dogs, but I don’t like cats. I love people, but I’m a little shy because people laugh at my looks.

The hospital looking for the last veterinary hope for animals to the limit | Society – Health Insurance

Apollo, a mongrel dog who will rebuild with a prosthesis the jaw that someone broke, or Lía, a 3-month-old Maltese bichon who has operated from the heart, are some of the almost 5,000 extreme and complex cases They spend a year at the AniCura Valencia Sur Veterinary Hospital.

« We are an exclusive center of cases that are referred by other clinics or hospitals that have considered that they could have one last chance with us« , affirms in an interview with the Agency EFE Jorge Llinás, director and head of surgery of the center, to which many animals are mistreated or have been evicted from other parts of Spain and abroad.

Llinás is considered the « Animal digs » for the complex interventions he performs, such as Sky, a dog that was sent from Germany, where he was to be slaughtered, and underwent maxillofacial surgery to reconstruct half of his face, which had been sectioned with a knife.

« I am flattered by the simile, but we are light years away from a surgeon as big as (Pedro) Cavadas; Hopefully we can do such similar things, « says the veterinarian, who adds that Valencia Sur is a reference center where » teamwork « is done and help in cases that seemed to have no solution.

One they are currently working on is Apollo, a mestizo who came to the center with a « bestial trauma » and the jaw in the air and to which, after being able to extract the filarias (worms) that he had in his heart, they are preparing a three-dimensional prosthesis so that he can eat normally.

The Valencian center, open for seven years and where 60 people work, offers a comprehensive service with the total practice of veterinary specialties and it has a multidisciplinary team that contributes its experience in hospitals in Europe and the United States « to solve the most complicated cases ».

One of these specialists is the Italian Roberto Bussadori, who after intervening with Lía, a Maltese bichon puppy weighing just 800 grams, of a vascular anomaly between the aorta and the pulmonary artery, explains to EFE the special difficulty of this operation. Lía, who has been referred from Murcia, suffers the third most common congenital anomaly in the dog and although this problem could be solved with other less invasive methods, it has only been possible to perform with traditional surgery due to its low weight, Bussadori details, who points out that the veterinary profession is « totally vocational ».

Jorge Llinás also agrees with this statement, which states that being a veterinarian, « more than a philosophy, It’s a lifestyle. The veterinarian is born with that vocation « , and regrets that Spain is one of the countries at the head of animal abuse.

« It is a real and objective situation, it is very worrying, and I think it is a matter of social awareness and action, » highlights this specialist in maxillofacial surgery and veterinary dentistry, which adds: « Like many colleagues in Spain, we are doing a service to serve a lot of animals that, unfortunately, are abandoned. »

He confesses that the cases that have marked him the most are those in which he has not managed to save them –« I see those broken families … », He regrets – and explains that they have in the center a puppy that has arrived from Madrid due to a laryngeal paralysis and its owners are selling the car and doing everything possible for him.

The center has also made interventions such as Magnus, a 4-month-old lion cub that worked in a circus and whose esophageal problems prevented him from eating solid foods, or that of Duna, who arrived at the Hospital with a broken face after being abandoned by a hunter and was unable to eat and drink.

« The most frustrating thing is when you see that you don’t get it, the pain of the family stays in your head and heart, the last look of that dog or cat … That hurts, « reveals Llinás.

Signs to know if the pet is suffering from anxiety – Environment – Life – Health Insurance

After the end of the year holidays, vacations and having shared some days with our pets, it is time to return to the routine of daily life, work, school or university, and It becomes very difficult for both us and our furry friends to get used to being alone or not seeing each other as often.

It is there when barks and howls appear, as do the complaints of the neighbors, and also the restlessness and destruction in our house. If these behavioral changes are familiar to us, perhaps our pet is having an episode of separation anxiety.

It is the set of anomalous activities, such as destroying objects, barking, howling, elimination of feces or urine in inappropriate places, among others.

What is it?

According to clinical ethology – the discipline of veterinary science that is responsible for studying animal behavior – separation anxiety is a behavioral disorder more frequently observed in dogs than in cats.

It is the set of anomalous activities, how to destroy objects, barking, howling, elimination of feces or urine in inappropriate places, among others, which occur as a result of the restlessness and stress caused by the anticipation of a negative damage or stimulus for our pets, as it is to stay or feel alone. Although it is important to note that not always that there are changes in the behavior of our dogs or cats is because they suffer from separation anxiety.

What causes it?

Dogs and cats are considered social animals that create emotional bonds with their peers or with their human families, and their wildlife ancestors associated moments of loneliness with moments in which their lives were in danger and they had to remain alert.

When the dog or cat is very puppy and has been used to being always accompanied, he suffers from anxiety the first times he feels abandoned.

Although some experts believe that separation anxiety occurs only when our pet is very attached to us, three situations can be distinguished in particular:

– For dogs or cats there are no definitive routines. That is why in these times, when they have been accustomed to our company and from one moment to another we are no longer with them for long periods of time, they usually manifest stress symptoms.

When the dog or cat is very puppy and has been used to being always accompaniedHe suffers from anxiety the first times he feels abandoned.

– Animals that had not previously shown symptoms, but suddenly change their behavior as a result of trauma or fear – such as accidents, gunpowder, storms, among others – associated with the periods in which they were alone.

What are the most common symptoms?

As mentioned earlier, not all symptoms can be associated with this disorder, so receiving advice from an ethologist veterinarian is key to both diagnosis and treatment.

– Vocalizations: barking, howling and constant whining.

– Inappropriate Disposal: Animals that already have learned behaviors and places suitable for disposal and suddenly begin to urinate and defecate at home. It usually occurs in the form of constant urination and small amounts, and stools of liquid consistency with diarrheal appearance.

– Destructive behaviors: when they are alone they can break blinds, doors, windows or furniture, looking for escape routes.

– Hyperactivity: they are restless, they make routes and repetitive movements.
– Inapetence: they manifest depression, inactivity, lack of appetite and apathy.

– Anorexy: Our furry friends do not eat when we are not at home.

The most important thing is to educate them lovingly from puppies so that, already in adult life, it will be easier for them to spend time alone and they can become comfortable while we are not at home.

How to modify this behavior?

The most important thing is to educate them lovingly from puppies so that, already in adult life, it is easier for them to spend time alone and they can become comfortable while we are not at home.

– Provide a safe environment, reliable and that stimulates them mentally, where they have everything they need: toys, bed, food, etc.

– Perform physical exercise of medium or low intensity every day, it makes the brain stimulated and they get home tired.

– It has been proven to use aromatherapy and soothing music at low volume makes loneliness more bearable.

The dog was going to be delivered today to a girl with a disability – BOCALÁN FOUNDATION

Prey of fear, Alfonso handed them his wallet, in which he kept 60 euros, the documentation and bank cards, with the aim of leaving without having to regret major damage. « But it was not like that. Before leaving, one of them looked at the dog and he told the rest that they were taking her, ”he adds, before they pulled a strap on his belt and put it in his arms inside the van.

Australia is experiencing one of the most catastrophic environmental crises in its history, the fires that have hit the region since September of last year have left homeless, not only hundreds of people, but also thousands of animals, whose habitats have been reduced to ashes

Kangaroos, koalas and other species have lost their lives in their attempt to get away from the flames. Videos and images of animals killed and severely injured by burns are published daily.

But in the midst of this bleak landscape, the faces of the solidarity of people who help these creatures and save them from dying in the fire, from hunger or thirst have also been seen.

This is the case of Rutsy, a dog that has given a great lesson in hospitality to many Internet users by sharing his bowl of water with a small marsupial which, it seems, has become a very good friend.

According to Andrew Fost, a neighbor of the canine’s owners and who made the tender scene popular in a Facebook post, « Koala comes to drink some water every time it is very hot. »

In the video you can see how Rutsy beats his tail while the koala drinks a little water, then the dog does the same and seconds later, as in a gesture of complicity and gratitude, they join their snouts as in a tender caress.

The publication became so popular that Australia’s ‘7News’ news portal interviewed Danielle Stone, the one in charge of recording the video and owner of Rutsy. The woman said that the koala is called Quasi and that she regularly wanders around her house to drink some water on hot days.

For Stone there are many things that people can learn from these images, Rutsy’s noble gesture is an invitation to be supportive of others. « I think humans could learn one or two things from this pair » concluded.

In Pennsylvania, Caldas, alarms are set for death of dogs due to poisoning – Other Cities – Colombia – Health Insurance

Much concern is expressed by the citizens of Pennsylvania, a municipality in eastern Caldas, due to the massive poisoning of canines that have been recorded since the end of last year. According to animalists in the municipality, there are already 24 and all have died with the same symptoms.

“We began to see that, later, the cases were more followed and the puppies ran and ended up rolling on the floor. That, besides being in the same areas, ”said Laura Agudelo, a member of the Animalistas de Corazón Foundation.

The volunteer said that the poisonings have been systematic and have affected not only the dogs that live on the streets, but several domestic ones. « It is the custom of peoples to release them from the morning and they go to the house to eat and sleep, but now they do not return, » he said.

Among the dogs that have died are –even– ‘icons’ of the municipality. This is the case of Logan Orión, an adopted dog who claims that « he was a friend of all the inhabitants of the town. »

« They had an owner and everyone loved them, so you don’t understand why these things happen, there is no justification, » Agudelo added.

According to what the foundation has found, the poisoning is with a chemist who has no antidote, so only one pet has been saved. This is a pinscher who survived because its owners took her to Manizales to treat her.

Logan, described as a friend of all, was one of those who died from poisoning.

The concern of the community is that there are no answers about who is causing the poisoning. In addition, they say that four years ago something similar happened, but for that occasion there were 60 canines that were poisoned.

“From here we are advising you on the legal issue, indicating how the complaint should be made, the issue of witnesses and evidence, because they have gone to the police to show the cameras, but they say they are damaged, ”Quiroz said.

The deputy, whose flag is the defense of animals, said that one of the problems is that in the municipality there is no veterinarian who can handle these cases.

« The professionals there are responsible for other types of larger species and, in general in the department, there is a deficit in that attention, » he said.

We made awareness days, we fly, we explain that this is a crime and we invite the community to denounce, but it did not bear fruit

The municipal government secretary, Cristian Camilo Giraldo, said that measures have already been taken, but have not borne fruit.

The secretary said that they are waiting to make another meeting with animal activists to determine what other actions can be taken so that no more dead canines appear.
