In March 2013 I published this 'Letter to Senor Galguero'. Sadly all it expresses still applies today. The Hunting Federations have not improved matters - no controlled breeding of galgos, no mass abandonment, still keeping them in dark underground locked bunkers....what has changed is that there are now millions of Spanish people who are thoroughly ashamed of the bad press the hunters bring to their lovely country and protest vociferously every year throughout major cities in Spain.
Fermin Perez Martin of Scooby Medina presented a Spanish translation to the Federation of Galgueros when he was in dialogue with them to try and improve the situation. Needless to say, the galgueros refuse to acknowledge they cause a problem!
We must keep supporting those fighting the cruelty perpetrated on galgos by the galgueros in any way we can.
Please feel free to share the 'Letter'but ensure that I am credited as its author.
