So how many galgos and podencos did the Scooby team in January and February 2016? Cobie at Valladolid has been counting.
Maybe you read the news on the Scooby blog or maybe you don´t, but the histories about the trips Scooby makes to save galgos is every time a different one, it´s not that we repeat the same rescues every time. Therefore I put them here again and it's from January until 23 February, so the rescues from December and before are not included:
Not about galgos but an example of the incredible work done by DeAnimals firm of lawyers in Murcia. And why they need funding and sponsorship to fight more cases and run more courses to educate lawyers, judges, police, Seprona and volunteers on how to prosecute cases of maltreatment of animals. Please sponsor them through ACTIN here. If donating through Paypal, please go through family and friends and mark Donation to DeAnimals
Translation of the piece on Madrid television about the abandonment of and cruelty to galgos.
'Abandoned, abused, malnourished... So are many greyhounds when hunting season, now in February. So protective of animals denounce it as Animal Rescue who see real atrocities committed with these dogs. Some come with obvious signs of abuse and have even had cases of galgos who had started the chip of rennet to avoid being identified.
Between February and June, almost 30% of dogs that are collected in the community of Madrid are galgos.'
WRITTEN by a Spanish lady, translated with Google:
SPAIN is different !!
I do not care who believe they all sang flamenco and Spanish dance Sevillanas, we spent the day napping and we live in an eternal summer, we really like the fun and little work, I do not care ... but I hate, and I am ashamed to live in a country that itself is something to change ...
Over 14 cities and thousands of people marched in peaceful protest against hunting with galgos, podencos, pointers etc in Spain. And also against the cruelty the cazadores and galgueros inflict on their hounds. Here's a video of the protest in Madrid where over 2,000 people marched. And remember, this is the Spanish protesting against the Spanish hunters.
Another victim of the galgueros, abandoned and badly injured on a Seville road. Rescued by Fondacion Benjamin Mehnert volunteers and taken to their vet at Ejica. Sadly Villa had contracted pneumonia and was unable to be saved.
This is a google translation of a piece on facebook. I haven't published a link to the video...it is simply tooooooo distressing. The cruelty of the Spanish hunters continues to be unbelievable! Whoever did this to the galga is totally inhuman!
February 9, 2015
The video is of yesterday, Sunday at 19:30 PM. We went to rescue that galguita, of a publication made on Channel 9. Arrived at the place we find ourselves with a table that left us paralyzed, the animal was tied up, no water, no food, famished, full of flies, larvae in her ears, tick-infested. That person did to let her die without a doubt, it was a very particular corner because if this had not been published, nobody was going to find her in any way. Not even this coward helped her die faster than that of a more dignified way. We cut that leash and immediately took her to the vet but it was too late. The Vets nothing they could do to that table so ominous to that led to that animal.
300+ marchers in Santander to add to the hundreds who marched in cities all over Spain on Sunday 7th February 2016 to protest about the Spanish galgueros and cazadores and hunting with dogs. Here's a comment from one marcher.
Santander... 300 people gathered to show the city its rejection of the hunt. Every time they look more greyhounds and hounds in the north living happily in a home, despite the fact that we still have a long way to go, there's still a lot of animals suffering, and that they expect us to help them. That's the reason for these demonstrations, to show everyone what are the consequences of the hunt and that there are other options that involve a happy ending for all. It's not worth the "I didn't know", Now the whole world knows that it is animal abuse, and that's why we march - for an act of animal protection, by the end of the hunt, for an education based on respect for the living beings.
