He ran towards his son when he saw him in danger
But Bavera, he never thought that kick would be deadly to the dog.
There are several versions of the events and all of them point to defending the dog, since some witnesses claim that the minor was playing with the dog and was even bothering the animal.
Others claim that the dog did not represent any danger to the child, despite the fact that it climbed onto the child’s body.
They insist that the minor was never in danger with “Gringo”, but the father had another perception and reacted by hitting the dog.

Given the rain of criticism that the minor’s father received, he decided to surrender to the authorities and clarify to the press that It was never his intention to kill the dog, and that his reaction was only to save his son, since he saw that he was in danger.
“I’m sorry for the dog’s death, I never would have wanted that to happen. But I also wonder what would have happened if I hadn’t gotten the dog off my son. I admit that my reaction was wrong, unfortunately I hit him in a fatal place, but it was two seconds. Of course I am sorry, “said the father of the minor before the media.
So far, the authorities have not set any type of accusation against Bavera, but If prosecuted and found guilty, he could face a prison sentence for animal abuse.
