    More Than 50 Pets Massacred In Puerto Rico

    Nearly All Died After Being Seized From Housing Projects And Hurled Off Bridge


    “They came as if it were a drug raid,” said Alma Febus, an animal welfare activist. “They took away dogs, cats and whatever animal they could find. Some pets were taken away in front of children.”

    But instead of being taken to a shelter, the pets and strays were thrown 50 feet from a bridge in the neighboring town of Vega Baja, according to Fontanez, witnesses and activists, apparently before dawn Tuesday.

    “Many were already dead when they threw them, but others were alive,” said Jose Manuel Rivera, who lives next to the bridge. “Some of the animals managed to climb to the highway even though they were all battered, but about 50 animals remained there, dead.”
