SUMMARY:

This sentence finds a woman guilty of abandonment, for leaving a puppy on a public thoroughfare, in conditions that risked its life and heath. A danger derived from the risks associated with a public thoroughfare, but also because the guilty party could have run over the animal while leaving with the vehicle. Apart from the legal bases for this judicial finding, the author performs an analysis of the current legal treatment in criminal law regarding animal abandonment, with respect to the subject, object, and seriousness of the circumstances, with the goal of determining when this type of unfortunately widespread behavior can be punished criminally.
