Animals in Peru – level 3

11-10-2016 15:00

Peruvian authorities rescued around 100 animals, including  puppies, in Lima. The vendors were apparently selling the animals in catalogues and on public roads.

The officials said that the animals, which now will receive veterinary care and then be put up for adoption, were found in terrible conditions and crowded together.

The authorities are urging people to stop buying animals from these places. The government has issued a hotline that people can call to report animal abuse. Suspects found guilty of animal abuse can get a sentence of up to three years in jail.

Difficult words: vendor (a seller), apparently (as it seems), urge (ask).
