Abstract

This research contributes to an ethical debate in Peru; One whose incipient condition is inversely proportional to its level of urgency. If respect for the different forms of life that coexist with human beings matters in the various agendas, the issue of animal abuse is still a point of focus worthy of academic and political attention. This work revolves around the relations of influence between the media, political events and active citizenship. He argues that there is a correlation between journalistic coverage on animal abuse, the interaction between digital audiences and the process of political events, in the specific Peruvian context. The coverage of the Peruvian press on animal abuse can be characterized by certain frames, From the observation of two digital media in a specific period. It explores the relationship between the media agenda, the political agenda and public opinion; As well as a context whose levels of violence manifest the publications of the media selected. Under the agenda-setting approach, it deals with the process leading to the adoption of the Law on Protection and Animal Welfare, Law No. 30407, which introduces the criminalization of a set of actions of human animals towards non-human animal species .
