Let us urge Colombia to give the maximun sentence to Luis Moreno. Let us not only expect the maximun amount of jail time, but also a suspension from playing soccer. This kind of behavior should not be tolerated. Moreno took advantage of an already stunned bird. The bird died from the blunt kick, and animal abuse charges should be filed. There is absolutely no excuse for his behavior.

*Note*
This animal was a wild animal that lived in the stadium. The soccer team of that facility let the bird stay and began to look at it as a good luck symbol. This animal was not trained and did not have a handler. My guess is that living in the stadium it became fearless of people which resulted in it becoming stunned and vulnerable on the field. Thank you all for being the voice for those who have none.
