Margarita, a devoted animal lover from Merida, Yucatan, was adored for her kind nature and generosity.

Every morning, a gaggle of stray animals would appear at her front door waiting for her to feed them. She even took a bag of food with her everywhere she went in order to feed all of the stray animals she met along her way.

Margarita passed away last month after battling illness, but her kindness in life didn’t go unnoticed. Family members knew Margarita was a devoted animal lover but they were nonetheless shocked when one bird and a group of stray dogs arrived to honor Margarita at her funeral on March 15.

The buffalo were so keen and coming close to us.”
