A dog was spotted on the tracks of a Metra train in Peru, without being able to get to safety. The dog kept trying to find a way off the tracks while many looked on. Though no one else attempted to pick up the animal before a train approached, one woman made the move to save the dog.
The woman was at a train station by the tracks waiting for a train in Lima, Peru. She spotted the dog trying to get off the tracks without any other help and then made the split decision to check if the coast was clear before jumping in to carry the dog off to safety. Most of the people and local media believed her to be a hero in saving this life but now the train station officials want to press charges against her for illegally getting on the tracks.
The train officials believe that the woman should have “trusted that they would do their job instead of defying the rules.” Please sign and share this petition to ensure this woman is not punished for her impulsive but selfless act of trying to save a life. She did not intend to disobey the rules; her compassion and care for animals simply kicked in to protect this animal. We are asking that she not be charged and punished for her good deed.
Lima, Peru Metro Authority Station Manager – Please do not punish the woman for her actions in saving a dog on the tracks at your station. She did not deliberately disobey your laws; she saw an animal clearly in danger and jump right in out of selflessness and compassion to save the dog that good have otherwise gone badly. Spare her and disregard any punishment, lawsuits or other charges for this woman for caring about a life and acting on it. She is indeed a hero.
