Stop the RACING !


I have copied and emailed the letter with my name at the bottom, hope this is correct as it says above to add your name after Vivienne's? Also there are a couple of minor errors in the letter that need correcting?

Well done Vivienne hope they receive thousands of emails.

Thanks for adding this Mandy. I note Graham has commented on the AWSM facebook page, so Id just addy that there are millions of people who are NOT on Facebook and that is why I suggest to my GN readers that they copy, paste and email the letter themselves.

Thanks to Vivienne for the initiative and the letter.

This is the reply I got to my email.

Google translated int English s not perfect:

En relación con su correo electrónico referente a la protección de galgos, se informa lo siguiente:

El SEPRONA de la Guardia Civil tiene entre otras misiones de protección de la naturaleza y el Medio Ambiente, la protección animal. En el año 2011 se registraron más de 12.000 actuaciones relacionadas con perros, un 10 % galgos, lo que denota una constante tensión vigilante y preventiva del Seprona sobre este particular.

Recibimos numerosas comunicaciones que son reproducciones reiteradas referentes al maltrato animal, conteniendo noticias vagas, difusas e inconcretas. Desde esta Jefatura se le anima que en caso de poseer datos precisos, sean denunciados ante la sede policial más cercana a su domicilio.

Lo que se informa para su conocimiento,
