We update: in one eye he has no vision, in the other very little, a terrible infection inside his mouth. The vet tells us that he's very old. Poor Bruno must have suffered the unspeakable, now he's being fed a very nutritious diet so he can eat because he's hungry. Come Grandpa much strength ❤️
Cansado de todo, quiero un ano sabatico. Me voy a pasar al lado oscuro.
And Fermin also says (translated with Google)
I have been rescuing animals for 30 years and it seems that this is going to get worse, more and more animals, more and more problems with the administration, more and more misunderstanding. Maybe it's time to retire and let other people do the work.
Regular readers may remember a few years back I was contacted by London photographer Martin Usborn, who wished to visit Spain to photo the galgos, and wanted the details of a couple of refuges to contact. The result was a stunning coffee table book. Here are links to 2 interesting articles which have appeared in National Geographic magazine, the first one being an interview with Martin.
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.
Many of you ask what happens to petitions you sign. Here is one.
Greyhound Compassion vient de publier une mise à jour sur la pétition «King of Spain should stop Copa S. M. El Rey for annual galgo coursing championship, Spain »
Closing galgo petition to King Felipe VI
Thank you all for your support. We've reached 3,751 signatures and are now submitting the petition and comments to King Felipe VI of Spain copy to Prime Minister Rajoy before the next coursing season starts and thousands of galgos suffer.
This poor baby is Asia, a brindle 8 month old galgo puppy who was rescued when his leg was trapped in a vile snare. The injury you see on his leg is the same on the outside (it's on video but I can't share it with you).
In Villanueva, Ciudad Real - Another galguero who probably have slept peacefully because he got rid of this little angel in a trap because he no longer serves him, and to slash his neck to remove the Chip.
Luckily he was found by a volunteer and taken to the vet. Even more lucky, although the flesh is cut through on both sides of the leg, it hasn't touched the bone or broken the leg.
A foster home was found for him away from the shelter (which had an outbreak of the dreaded parvo) and his leg is healing. Even better, Asia will be adopted, soon to be in his forever home.
