Colombia: Inspection and Educational Work at Zipaquirá Animal Market

Animals and Humans at Zipaquirá Animal Market, Colombia

Animals’ Angels inspects the animal market in Zipaquirá in Colombia. Just over 300 animals including horses, sheep, goats, pigs, donkeys, cattle, are for sale today in the Chiquinquirá square. We continue with our monthly monitoring and our awareness task with our self made flyers.

Besides, we make an urgent call to the Municipal Mayor's Office of Chiquinquirá so that the officials do not further delay the necessary improvements to the market as the current conditions are very precarious. The animals need better conditions that guarantee their well-being. Water is essential for life and in the Plaza de Chiquinquirá very few animals are guaranteed access to available drinking water – even when they endure very long and strenuous journeys.
