A Mexican man has been fined a total of 323 GBP after he poured petrol on top of the nursing female dog and her eight puppies and set them alight after alleging the mother dog growled at his daughter.
Oscar Eduardo Elizondo Ortiz, 32, was so proud of his good deed in removing the dogs from the street in the city of Zapopan, in the central Mexican province of Jalisco, that he even took pictures of the roasted puppies and posted them online to boast about it.
In order not to get caught he had claimed his name was Jonathan Canales but is true identity was revealed after a mass protest on social media sites demanding tough action against the killer.
Eyewitness Daniele Valdez said: "He claimed that the female dog growled at his daughter, and he was getting revenge. I don't know if that's true but he seemed to be enjoying it, he asked if anybody wanted roast puppy before he dropped the match on the animals. He then grabbed a bunch of stones and threw them at the animals while they were burning."
The pictures he took of the charred corpses were then uploaded online. Police acted quickly after complaints but caused further anger when they only fined the man the equivalent of 323 GBP, with many saying it should have been much higher. A campaign even started to see the man jailed with the hashtag #CarcelAlMataCachorrosZapopan (Jail to the puppies killer Zapopan).
Because of the popularity of the campaign the region's governor Aristoteles Sandoval promised to campaign in Congress for higher penalties against those who mistreat animals.
