We would love to give our deepest thanks to a brave young man, Miguel Ángel Palacios for giving his life to save a neighbor's dog Jerry. Miguel and his brother Juan Pablo intervened after hearing their neighbor Jesús Antonio Castaño threaten to sever the dog’s head with a machete. Their argument became heated, and drunk Jesús assaulted the boys with the machete and a pocket knife. The men were rushed to a nearby hospital, however Miguel lost his life the following morning. Jesús is now facing criminal charges, and Jerry is now living safely with the boy's mother Lina María Montoya.
