The official urged Saudis and expatriates to show kindness to all animals including wildlife, dogs, cats, chickens, camels, and cows.

He said, the regulation is under the responsibility of the Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture and the ministry's enforcement arm applies stiffer penalties to abusers of animals.giw

 

“Such cases are rare; what makes them visible and widespread is social media,” said Al-Bouq, adding that such behavior is exhibited by people who are ignorant and lack knowledge of the proper values that characterize the Saudi society, including having compassion for camels, horses, sheep and other animals.

“The regulation subjects offenders and animal abusers to clearly defined penalties and, in some cases, offenders may be taken to court for appropriate penal action,” he said.
