In Italy the woman was given paid leave to care for a dog

An employee of the University La Sapienza di Roma received a two-day paid leave to care for his dog, who was preparing for surgery.
About it writes La Repubblica.
The owner of the dogs asked the University about the two-day paid leave, however, she was asked to motivate your request because the earlier leave taken to care for the animals was not provided.
The lawyer of the Italian pointed to the rule that refusal to care for the animals is seen as cruelty to animals. According to her the owner of the animal is threatened with imprisonment for a year or a fine of up to 10 thousand euros.
The woman claimed that she would have committed a crime if would not be with my dog at this time. It also provided the University a certificate of need for surgery for pet.
Italian League antivivisection (one of Europe’s largest organizations for the protection of animal rights) has helped the scientific employee with this case. The head of the organization Gianluca, Felicetti believes that such decision was a step towards the recognition of Pets as family members.
