That is why he managed to get Congress to approve the imposition of “two to six years in prison and seven hundred days of fine, when zoophilia has been practiced or caused the animal the loss or uselessness of a sense, organ or main member or dies as a result of the acts of cruelty ”.

It was also added that “the same penalties will be imposed when, in addition to performing acts of abuse or cruelty against any animal, the active subject takes photographs or videotapes of them to make them public or they are taken in the presence of a minor.”

And finally, it was approved in the Code that the same penalty of six years in prison will be imposed on whoever helps to commit this type of crime.
