'Training' galgos. Another method is to chain the galgos to the turnstile whilst it revolves. We all know that, with the exception of a few, galgueros are bred in hell with no feelings or compassion. With podencos they are tied in a metal harrow behind a motor vehicle.
Any of you with Youtube access, can you comment such as 'animal abuse'.
The way animal rescue associations criticise each other really gets me angry! Here's a post I wrote on my Save the Galgo facebook page.
On Saturday, 11th October 2014, I was pleased to be a part of the demonstration and publicity in the Trocadero, Paris, organised by Galgos Ethique Europe, illustrating to the general public the beautiful galgos who were there as ambassadors for their breed, and telling of the dreadful maltreatment they suffer in Spain at the hands of the galgueros and gitanos.
Photos from the Rassemblement at the Trocadero in Paris on 11 October 2014 - lots of galgos, some podencos (hurray - at last!); lots of banners, video of atrocities against the hounds; handing out leaflets; lots of people signing the UNESCO petition. And the sun shone all day.Great to meet Joelle Valois and Marion Rigaud of GEE and representatives from Levriers du Sud, L'Europe des Levriers and Galgos112 (from Barcelona)
Further report on the latest rescue of starved animals from the Bullas owner - he's the one in the white hat with grey moustache, taken away by the Guardia Civil, denounced, and to be prosecuted. The goats remained there in the charge of a great young man who daily cares for them, under the supervision of Scooby.
Please remember all these animals need feeding and vet care and Scooby can't do it without the generosity of those who love animals.
Please there are petitions always sign, it does make a difference, although unfortunately in this case, we didn't win. After two years of work led by the Andalusian Federation of Galgos (FAG) and the Andalusian Hunting Federation, the Directorate General of Animal Health of the Junta de Andalucía has approved the legalization of 'training' galgos with motor vehicles in Andalusia, something that until now was considered by the Administration as a crime of animal abuse.
Sorry, folks, another petition. But we need to make our voices heard. Please sign and share. The new law in hunting in Castilla-La Mancha, let's kill dogs and cats and the hunting with traps. It has been approved by the board of communities, without consulting the European Council of hunting or any publicity whilst it was being considered!
Anna explains. 'This is is about a decision that one region in Spain has taken with regards to allow countryside/ farmers to kill stray cats and dogs as they wish , the local government is even providing funds to do this . They can also put traps in the countryside as they wish - which gives carte blanche to minds already depraved, evil people to kill whatever they want without been accused of animal cruelty.
This law has been passed before going through national consultation ( central government forest and hunting institution - by the way most ecological, animal central government institutions have a consultative role, they often advice against destructive practices - such the need of forestation plans - but NO local government acts upon them- this " comunidades" or regional parliaments are the money sucking problem we have in Spain)
Come on, guys, we need to keep signing and sharing - this petition will close in another week when Galgos Ethique Europe present the petition to the HQ of United Nations in Paris, after they have their big Conference on 11th October - to which I am going. PS - you can sign more than once, use your middle/maiden name/ etc!
