MEXICAN RESCUE DOG PROTEO DIES! The National Secretary of Defense of Mexico announced that they have lost one of the brave canine rescuers that were sent to help search for survivors in Turkey. According to their statement, the dog died while on duty.

Mexico sent Turkey its famous «Topos», rescuers who joined the daunting task of searching for survivors of the 7.8-magnitude earthquake that shook the country. The Mexican brigade members have helped rescue the lucky few who are still alive under the rubble.

“I want to tell you that I am proud of you, because you were always a strong dog, a hard-working dog, who never gave up. Now I just have to thank you… I will always remember you. All of Mexico, I hope they always remember you, never forget you. Someday we will see each other again,” said Sergeant Villeda.

Some internet users also demanded to know how Proteo died. Among the comments, they said that Proteo’s death was due to an insufficient budget designated for the care of rescue animals and some even blamed Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

“We demand to know what happened to him!! If he was sick or old, he shouldn’t have gone, or if an accident happened to him due to lack of protection. What happened?» «@lopezobrador_ the puppies go without protection in their eyes, legs, poorly eaten and all thanks to the fuc… budget cut you made.» “An explanation of the causes and context of his death by him is absolutely necessary,” people said online.
