Gala is a beautiful young galga found in a field in Andalucia with two deliberately badly broken legs - the left front and the left back - so she could not possibly get up and walk anywhere. Left by some bastard Spanish hunter to die a long and lingering and painful death. Luckily she was discovered and El Amparo took her to their vet where their vet operated on her to pin her legs back together again. Here are some before photos, and an incredible after video where she is walking with her legs splinted.
The second story is yet another sickening one. A galgo somehow found itself on the Madrid Metro. It was chased in terror onto the rail lines where it was hit and badly injured - but not killed - by a train. The Metro authorities refused to let anyone go and rescue it - screaming in pain - but two women ignored them and went to the poor dog, although they were not able to save its life. Question - who the hell took a galgo down onto the Madrid Metro?!!
Gala again - remember, some bastard did this deliberately - and it happens often at this time of year....
(Apologies that I was mis-informed originally as to who has Gala - no fault of Scooby)
