A dog burned with a caustic substance showed up at a restaurant 4km from the city of Mérida. The owners of the restaurant wanted to "get rid" of the dog since she would give a bad image to a wedding that was being celebrated there. The police officers from Guardia Civil rescued the dog and took her to ADANA, the local humane society, from where she was taken to the vet clinic. She is now at the intensive care unit being treated for malnutrition and burns from a caustic substance.
