Hi

Yes, they arent really doing anything about the
plight of the galgos, bull fighting, donkey fiestas, nor the stray dog problem
throughout Europe.

So can you write to Mr Tod, his email address is
here, and get as many of your family and friends to do the same. Write a
polite letter but demand they do more than watch and actually set in motion a
law to FORCE countries to take action on control of breeding of dogs and cats,
and registration of the animals, and prosecution of owners who maltreat and
abandon their dogs, especially at the end of the hunting season.

The more letters they receive, the more chance we
have of making a difference.

Thanks for reading Galgo News and
commenting.

Dear Beryl,

Here is a letter is just sent to Mr Tod and I included some photos:

Dear Mr Tod,

I am writing to you to express my concerns about the Galgos which are used as hunting dogs in Spain. As you may know upwards of 50,000 of these beautiful dogs are abandoned and killed every year by the very people who are supposed to be taking care of them. They are killed is such horrific ways such as hanging, being burned alive, being thrown down wells, being beaten to death, the list goes on.
The images that are included in this letter are Not isolated incidents---multiply them by 50,000.

The time is long overdue to impart laws that will give protection to these dogs. As of now they have none. It is long overdue to set in motion a law to FORCE countries to take action on control of breeding of dogs and cats, and registration of the animals, and prosecution of owners who maltreat and abandon their dogs, especially at the end of the hunting season.

Have there been no laws made because hunting is a tradition in Spain? This view is archaic and barbaric. I don't need to tell you that day by day thanks to the Internet and other widely available media sources, word is getting out about how hunters in Spain treat their dogs, and thus putting a black mark on Spain as a tourist destination. It is difficult to think of Spain as a modern country while the torture and slaughter of thousands of the earth's most gentle and loyal dogs is taking place---this is more like Third World country mentality! Word has gotten out about how these dogs are treated---there is no turning back!

May I ask you to think for a moment what these Galgos endure. May I ask you why they must endure this hell on earth? Surely you would agree that no living creature should be treated is such a way.

Please don't turn a blind eye to this situation. Please ensure that some laws will be passed that will give protection to Galgos--- they deserve it.

Thank you so much,

Bonjour Valarie

Thank you for your marvellous message and
letter. I have to day been trying to sort out laptop, horses and donkeys
in the snow - the donkeys were abandoned on us last year, it has gone to Court,
but still the owner wont give us ownership to save them. So no time to
compose a reply.

So, will cut and paste yours onto Galgo News for
other to use.

Thanks a million for your help, really
appreciated.

Beryl
