Filemón is an exception that. He was the victim of a kidnapping in Motul, Yucatán. After his disappearance his companion and friend, Gilberth Canul Cupul, received a demand via the mobile phone application WhatsApp for a ransom of 1,000 pesos for his return.
The kidnapper began at 1,000 pesos and then reduced his demand to 500. “I offered him 300, then 400, but he didn’t want it,” said Canul.
So he reported the crime to local authorities and began searching for the missing donkey.
Canul now has Filemón back and has withdrawn his charge of theft.
He said he didn’t wish to make an ocean out of a glass of water.
