Just received an email from that marvellous campaigner for galgos Charl - please pray she catches him.
Sorry, this was the first email which came whilst I was in Spain.
'I just got back from going to Ikea and a white galgo with bailing twine wrapped round his neck crossed my path. I shot out of the car and followed him to where he goes. Very similar to the white sarna galga but very thin and sad. He was hard to follow, his fear of himself, solitary.
We called the security guard of the land, since it is government land and he told us he had been hiding out there for 4 days,and he keeps shooing him out, he follows him in the car to the main gate, while he is an adoptee of a "house pet"' it's clear as clear can be, that people do not consider galgos anything more than just something that can fend for itself. Get it out of here!
Anyway we go again tomorrow as he will let us in, I'd have jumped the fence to be honest but it was government land. Dioni and a friend were with me and I guess to a degree they kept my head straight. I would have jumped the fence but later the guard told us that it is gov.property and had someone else seen, it's a jail sentence for me.
Fancy, yet you can hang a galgo!!!
Since the number for the security co.was there we used it. We meet tomorrow and see if we will have luck, there's a shack which we can place food in daily and see what happens, if we have no luck tomorrow.
Second email today.
'Am trying to catch a white galgo who walked right in front of the car at Ikea the other day. I followed him and have seen where he more or less hangs out; very thin and has baling twine round his neck, broken, the typical, what I can't see is how much it's pressing on him; he is terrorised totally.
He goes into gov.land and, having called the security co, they let me in, they say he has been hanging out there 4 days so I keep going. I've laid food and yesterday he ate it.
There's a shed open and so we put the food in there; last night when we went he had eaten and, as we were leaving, he popped up from the long grass but JUST at the sight of us he flawed it. This morning no sign and he hadn't eaten, this afternoon the guard will be there so he said he would call me, had the galgo eaten but I will probably just turn up.
Am worried about him, poor thing. It's so hard, as he keeps his distance, so gaining his trust is going to be just down to placing food... God, I hope we can get him'.
If anyone can help Charl, please email her.
