Three Charged in Puerto Rican Pet Slaughter

A judge in Puerto Rico has charged 3 people for drugging cats and dogs and throwing them off a bridge. That's good news.

A Puerto Rican judge issued arrest warrants for the owner of an animal-control company and two of his employees Wednesday for allegedly killing dozens of dogs and cats that were drugged and hurled from a bridge.

Julio Diaz, the owner of Animal Control Solutions, and workers Lucas Montano Rivera, 18, and Roberto Rodriguez Ceballo, 28, were each charged with three counts of violations to the U.S. territory's animal-protection laws. Charges were also filed against the company.

"We are going to prove that we are not guilty," Diaz said as he left the court in suburban San Juan.
