The animal right laws in my country (Colombia) are very poor. In fact, The Colombian constitution does not recognize animal rights at all; there is only one law (Law 84 of 1989) which stipulates a statute to protect animals, with the exception of bullfighting and cock fights, which are considered to be part of the Culture of Colombia.
The Colombian Constitution does not officially
establish an ethical duty of society to protect animals. Law 99 of 1993
established the Ministry of Environment, Housing and Territorial Development
but simply to guarantee service for humans. Animals were placed as
belongings that served humans.
