A Galgo was found in Cáceres in its death throes after being beaten in the head, next to the Sierrilla reservoir. Sadly he was too far gone to save, so he was put to sleep to end his suffering.
He was found dying abandoned on a farm next to the road that reaches the water of the Sierrilla reservoir. He had signs of having been beaten in the head, which was completely bloody. The case was denounced yesterday (9/11/2016) by the Refugio San Jorge (municipal Kennel) through social networks. The animal, with little more than one year of life, passed away a few hours.
A couple who walked in the area found him and contacted the Refugio San Jorge. Then they came to the place and managed to rescue him. He was transferred to the Hospital clinical veterinary, where they tried to heal his wounds. He had a severe cranial trauma which failed to respond to treatment. A few hours after he had to be sedated to allow him to die. The object that was used to his him, the vets said must hav e been something flat and strong but not sharp, like a hammer.
From the Refugio San Jorge they believe that the galguero who abandoned him did so because «it was no use for hunting» and wanted to get rid of it in a premeditated way. This is so because before he battered it so badly the galguero ripped out the microchip so he could not be identified. (the microchip contains the data both of the dog as of the owner of the same).
El Refugio San Jorge published the tragic event on their Facebook profile and in a few hours it had been shared almost 400 times and had more than 360 reviews. The group will not start an investigation into the case in order to find the author of the brutal beating and to be condemned.
