ANOTHER BSL CASE in progress in Portugal!

Zico the dog is being held responsible for the death of a child left unattended, who died of cranial traumatism (it seems the baby, left unattended, has fallen, as a result of human negligence).

The dog Zico is being held responsible for human negligence in attending a child.
To the eyes of the international community, the family's finger is being pointed to the dog, in order to avoid their personal responsability in this tragic incident.
It came to our knowledge that for a long time now the child's uncle was willing to dispose of the dog Zico.
Punish the humans responsible for the death of the child.
There is considerable doubt of the dog's participation in the whole story.
We heard from a portuguese organization that there are not even bite wounds that establish the alleged Zico's attack on the child.
He is a non agressive dog, as established even by the local facility that now holds the dog in the death roll.
He was very ill-treated, thin, and suffered also from evident negligence by his owner.
