The reason for this letter is to ask you for justice after the barbaric act that the Construction Company Opresa perpetrate against Rosalinda Figueroa Castillo’s animal shelter when 33 live dogs were bulldozed in Cancun. 

 

The photos detail the actions of Opresa Construction Company, the primary contractor for La Gran Plaza Cancun - a mall being developed ostensibly as further capitalization on the tourist trade in the area.

      Opresa made a bogus deal to acquire land being used as a private shelter for the street dogs of Cancun - promising the owner and operator of the shelter that they would construct a new facility for her on land in an area called the Bonfil Ejido. This shelter was being operated by Rosalinda Figueroa Castillo, a woman of average means, as her personal charitable effort - which she has done for the past eleven years with meager resources and little support. She rescued and housed 186 dogs from the streets of Cancun - providing them with food, care, and shelter, rescuing them from lives of neglect, disease, suffering and starvation. A few months ago, a team of concerned veterinarians and volunteers even conducted a sterilization clinic at her shelter, neutering a great number of the dogs there.

      Opresa did not complete the construction as promised. Instead, after stalling and delaying in the completion of the promised facility they willfully and deliberately initiated destruction of Rosalinda's shelter, and used heavy equipment to bury more than 33 dogs alive - sending scores of other injured and terrified animals scattering back onto the streets!

      Even worse, on 2/17/05 when Rosalinda and her son arrived to find that temporary structures she and her friends had reconstructed had again been razed, she was then assaulted by a mob of Opresa's workers - who beat her son and dislocated her shoulder, sending them both to the hospital. They then continued to kick and beat the remaining dogs - sending them fleeing from what remained of the shelter. Cars struck a number of the fleeing dogs. Others had been raised at the shelter since they were puppies, and knew no other home. While several of the workers were briefly jailed for this assault, the outrage of this can never be fully rectified - and no amount of PR will ever redeem Opresa Construction Company for it's demonstrated cruelty, inhumanity and greed.

Honorable Mr Alor Quezada, we believe in your honesty and we ask you for justice in this hideous case. We respectfully petition that Opresa’s cruel workers serve the longest jail time, undergo mandatory psychological testing and counseling and also the construction of a good animal shelter for Mrs Figueroa Castillo.

El motivo de esta carta es pedirle justicia en el caso de barbarie que llevo a cabo la empresa constructora Opresa en contra del refugio animal de la senora Rosalinda  Figueroa Castillo  donde 33 perros fueron sepultados despues que la maquinaria pesada de Opresa derrumbara el lugar con los animalitos adentro. La tragedia se inicio cuando la empresa constructora Opresa firmo un contrato falso tratando de adquirir el terreno donde el refugio animal se encontraba y prometiendole a la propietaria- operadora del refugio que Opresa contruiria un nuevo refugio en el area de Bonfil Ejido.

Opresa no cumplio la contruccion del nuevo refugio como habia prometio y despues de retrasos y abandono de la obra prosiguieron a la destruccion del refugio animal de la senora Figueroa usando maquinaria pesada para demolerlo, matando 33 perros de los 186 que tenian hogar aqui, muchos otros lograron escapar malheridos a las calles.

El dia 2/17/2005 cuando Rosalinda y su hijo llegaron al lugar encontraron todo el refugio animal derrumbado y seguidamente un grupo de trabajadores de Opresa golpearon a la senora Rosalinda y a su hijo enviandolos ambos al hospital. Luego, trabajadores de Opresa continuaron pateando y golpeando a los perros malheridos para que salieran de las ruinas del refugio, los cuales huyeron despavoridos y muchos fueron atropellados en su huida.  Despues de este desafortunado dia, trabajadores de Opresa fueron enviados a la carcel por corto tiempo pero este indigno y horrendo acto nunca podra ser remediado o borrado pues la vida de pobres inocentes ha manchado las manos de Opresa,en Cancun y las imagines de perritos destrozados ya han recorrido el planeta.

Senor Francisco Antonio Alor Quezada, nosotros confiamos en su honestidad y respetuosamente pedimos que los culpables trabajadores de Opresa sirvan largos periodos de carcel, se sometan a obligatorio tratamiento sicologico y concejeria al igual que la empresa Opresa se comprometa con la construccion de un buen refugio para animals desamparados en Cancun.
