If Found Guilty Maximum Charges of Animal Cruelty for Baslio Gavilan

Albuquerque, New Mexico:  Albuquerque police were called to a motel on Monday January 16 to investigate a report of a disturbance. Upon arriving at the motel, officers found Baslio Gavilan disorderly and violating the motels no alcohol policy. Police informed Mr. Gavilan that he would need to leave the premises. Mr. Gavilan became angered and proceeded to pick up “Bongo” the puppy and throw the puppy in the air. Bongo landed on his head.

Gavilan’s girlfriend claims to be the owner of the puppy Bongo. Bongo is at the Albuquerque animal shelter and has been under observation. Thankfully, he does not appear to have any permanent damage. He is being held as evidence in this case.

We respectfully request that if found guilty, Baslio Gavilan be charged with the maximum penalty for animal abuse and that Mr. Gavlian be banned from owning animals. We further request that Bongo not be returned to Mr. Gavlian.
