December 23, 2011

Terror: By the end of the attack, the dog was cowering in the corner behind his basket, shaking and looking like he had been covered in liquid

According to news sources, Camilla Corrêa Alves de Moura Araújo—a practicing nurse and resident of Formosa, Goiás, Brazil—was caught on videotape savagely abusing a Yorkshire terrier in front of her young child. The graphic video, which has garnered international outrage, depicts what seems like an endless attack, as the abuser repeatedly kicks and punches the tiny animal, throws him against a wall, then slams him to the ground where he struggles to escape—but his body is too broken. She then strikes him in the head with a bucket before covering him with it. The dog is later depicted cowering and trembling in a corner. He reportedly died two days later as a result of his injuries.

Despite facing jail time upon conviction, reports indicate that De Moura Araújo only received a fine and community service! Please politely urge the below officials to take cruelty-to-animals cases more seriously, and please share this alert widely!

Text Translation

I was shocked and saddened to know that Camilla Alves de Moura Corrêa Araujo, who was filmed cruelly killing a Yorkshire terrier in front of her young son, received only a fine and community service. People who mistreat animals pose a risk to anyone. The safety of the community requires that these crimes be punished vigorously. Please treat cases of animal abuse more seriously in the future!

    I think that lady derserves to be punished as if it were a child or a patient she were doin that to, and lose her liscene to practice nursing,someone as evil and sick minded as that has no business being around anyone or anything that is living. I couldnt watch more than the first five seconds it made sick, and i also burst into tears. I also think that the people allowing her to get away with this so easily are just as guilty as the bitch that did it.

    She is now free to abuse,injure and kill more animals ..and research shows that it is frequently the same people who commit animal abuse and child abuse .

    we need to find out where she works! I don’t believe she will stay employed if enough people send the administration of the hospital evidence of her crime!

      I understand she was already unemployed when she committed the crime.

    There is no punishment in Brazil for criminals that aren’t poor and illiterate. Everyone else gets a slap on the wrist and are let go to practice more crimes. That scumbag will live to laugh at the world and confirm that nothing was going to go ANYWHERE. I only hope that she will suffer persecution from people who will know her, wherever she goes. Her photos should be seen by everyone in the world.

    I just found this out. I for one would like to have five minutes alone with this cruel bitch. She would be worse off than that poor defenseless puppy, that weighed what, 5 pounds! You could have just given the little dog to a better home. I hope they take your child away!
    Anyone who could do that to a dog could to that to a human!

    Remember Jeffrey Dalmer? You’re a sick bitch!
