Another death linked to animal protection

Environmentalists are attributing the murder this week of  Diego Armando Saborío to his efforts to defend animals on his family’s property in  Chamorro de Cutris de San Carlo. They are equating the death to that of turtle protector  Jairo Mora in the Caribbean coast.

A release said that there have been 12 direct attacks on environmentalists, 10 houses or stores burned and 16 cases of death threats.

Environmentalists are considering a government proposal to become enrolled in the Fuerza Pública reserves so they can carry firearms.
