Here are some photos of the rescue at Bullas, Murcia, on Friday, 9th March 2012. (most are on Facebook). Story on Podenco Post. You will see there were alsations, podencos, pointers, galgos.....some chained up in vans and trucks, some outside in the intense heat with no shade, chained to trees, no food, no water. The white dog has ticks behind its ears and down its spine.
The 'owner' of the site was present part of the time; volunteers report him threatening to kill them, others of being driven at purposely by a vehicle. This is the very dark side of hunting in Spain - the hunters and gitanos are ruthless and will stop at nothing to perpetrate atrocities against those who stand up to them - families, homes, cars will be damaged....and the difficult is to stop it, because those who make the laws, those who should enforce them, through the courts...many of them are hunters...and they look after their own.
