A couple in Mexico is accused of using deceptive practices to obtain puppies which were allegedly fed to their snakes. As reported by The Sun, Kevin Peralta de la Torre and Aleh Ortlsaias allegedly duped people into letting them “adopt” their puppies or small dogs and then fed the pups to snakes on their farm.
The couple’s suspected exploits were outed by social media users. One person wrote:
“This guy kills [the puppies]. It was known a long time ago that he has a snake farm. They request small dogs to feed their snakes.”
Another person wrote:
“He also adopted a puppy from a litter that my nephew had sheltered. As soon as the dog was handed over, he deleted his Facebook and WhatsApp.”
After obtaining the puppies, Ortlsaias allegedly ghosted the person who had handed the pups over – blocking them on social media platforms after the original owner asked for photos to see if the puppy was doing well.
The untoward practices have been reported to the Aguascalientes Attorney General’s Office; it is unknown if an investigation is underway.
Anyone who needs to rehome a pet should be mindful of who is trying to adopt. Complete a phone interview, get references, conduct a home inspection if possible, and ask for a rehoming fee to help weed out people seeking free pets.
