Another petition to sign, raised by Association Baas Galgo - addressed to the director of Castil1a-la Mancha TV and also the Regional Government of Castilla-la Mancha.
Here is a translation.
Att of Carmen Amores(Director of Castilla La Mancha Television)
The Association BaasGalgo can neither understand nor conceive, that public service television, subsidized by all Spaniards is the accomplice to the world of hunting and racing with galgo, where there is so much suffering, death and abandonment.
A world where animals are exploited to exhaustion or injury to then be discarded, abandoned or slaughtered because they could no longer fulfill the expectations for which they were raised. A world in which they are bred indiscriminately, neglect and abuse are linked to them, even after complaints and court trials where people have been convicted, they are still used as tools.
As association devoted to the fight against the neglect and abuse of the Galgo in Spain, we urge the public entity to reconsider the issue of galgo racing and hunting.
The Association calls for change and this is clearly shown in the massive demonstrations that are convened every year against the use of the Galgo as a tool.
Each year thousands of dogs are abandoned or slaughtered in horrible ways, a fact that year after year we check and we suffer with them. Equally the Spanish Society and International Communities are aware of the cruelty involved in this "hobby".
We urge the direction of Castilla La Mancha television and thoser responsible for content that they behave in an ethical way and take a step forward with courage to delete this type of content from your television output. It is NOT a sport.
