Colombian parliamentarians can now sit with their pets, a world premiere. The right -wing Senator Alirio Barrera did not show up in the hemicycle in Bogota with his cat or dog, but perched on his imposing white horse.

The member of the Democratic Center party first wandered over his mount in the streets of the center of the capital, before venturing into the corridors of the Parliament to claim the importance of equines for the Colombian campaigns.

"It is a tribute to the peasants, men and women, herds' guards who live with horses. To all those people who work in the fields," the elected official told AFP holding his horse white by the bridle.

Last week, the President of the Senate, Roy Barreras, had announced from the perch, with his dog on their knees, which parliamentarians could now come accompanied by their pets. What to do with the Colombian Parliament "the first in the world that is Pet-Friendly", he congratulated himself.

"My pet is my horse," said Alirio Barrera alongside his destrier called "Pasaporte". "Some have their pets, their cats, their dogs, I have my horse and if the law is for one, may it be for everyone," said the senator, straw hat on the head.

A shot that did not please the ecological bench. Senator Andrea Padilla pointed out "an immature attitude with which he wanted to ridicule a good decision of the Parliament".

"It is not the same thing to take a dog to the office as a horse, a horse suffers on the asphalt, on the sidewalk, he suffers on these waxed floors," denounced Ms. Padilla.

In Colombia, the law has been protecting wild and domestic animals from human beings since 1989, with exceptions for so -called cultural practices, such as bullfighting or rooster fights of which the Senator Barrara is a defender.
