Dog that was filmed is dragged over the ground after it was shot by the owner & # 39; dies
A filmed dog that has been dragged over the ground by the owner after he was shot for giving birth to puppies.
A horrible spectator filmed a Spanish hunter who abused the animal on Saturday.
It was rescued seriously injured, but Tuesday it was confirmed that it had died in the veterinary clinic in Lugo, Galicia, where vets tried to save their lives.
The unknown owner, a man allegedly around 60 years old, could receive a prison sentence of almost two years and a fine of more than £ 25,000.
Animal welfare groups and a local veterinary association have already committed to take legal action against him.
A hunter was filmed and dragged a new mother dog – who had just received six puppies – over the ground with a rope after allegedly shooting her
An online petition entitled Justice for Alma, the name of the tragic dog, has already been signed by thousands of people calling for & # 39; the full weight of the law to fall for this & # 39 ;.
The petition says: & # 39; Alma is a dog that has young puppies and is fighting for her life after her owner has given her a beating and has shot her twice, resulting in serious injury.
Toen When he saw that he had not killed her, he dragged her across the floor to complete the murder at home.
& # 39; Thanks to someone who was in transit, footage was taken and the police were reported without delay.
& # 39; Today we ask for everyone's cooperation, so that this crime does not go unpunished and the full weight of the law falls on this madman. & # 39;
The unnamed dog owner can be heard arguing with the man filming him and dragging the harassing animal on the ground
Asturias, animal welfare group Mundo Vivo, located in northern Spain, which published a photo of the dog and the footage of the incident on Saturday in the municipality of Chantada near Lugo, said: & # 39; This happened in Chantada, Lugo.
& # 39; After he fired at it and broke his humeri but did not kill, he was slapped around the head and dragged home so the owner could finish the job.
& # 39; It was the crime to give birth. The mother is in a serious condition in a hospital in Lugo and the puppies are cared for by the local veterinarian.
& # 39; Mundo Vivo will take legal action. Please share this video so that the judges, when this case is tried, are inexorable with this scum of the earth. & # 39;
A spokesperson added photos of the dog's puppies, who are only three weeks old and are said to be in good health: & # 39; These are the baby & # 39; s of the dog fighting for his life, the animal that was shot, beaten and dragged to the ground by a hunter in Chantada, Lugo.
& # 39; We hope that this scum gets the justice it deserves. We need example sentences for these samples. & # 39;
Laura Duarte, president of the Spanish animal rights party PACMA, said: & The disgust and anger that these images give me is indescribable.
& # 39; In this county, this cruelty is not always punished with imprisonment.
& # 39; We are fighting that. In the coming hours we will inform you about the action that we intend to take. & # 39;
The unnamed dog owner can be heard arguing with the man who is filming him and dragging the harassing animal across the floor.
He tells him that he takes it home when he reaches an underpass before he shouts: & # 39; Stop filming & # 39 ;, as the good Samaritan replies: & # 39; What you do is inhuman, I don't film you , I film the animal and what you are doing. & # 39;
The six dogs & # 39; s of the dog that are now being cared for by a veterinarian after being taken to an animal protection center
Local reports claimed that at some point the sadist claimed: & # 39; I can shoot at someone I want to shoot & # 39; with regard to the bullet he reportedly put into his dog.
Horrified Maria Clara Celada wrote on Facebook: “He must be punished. These acts of animal abuse cannot go unpunished. Thank goodness the dog's life has been saved. God bless the person who helped her. & # 39;
Another added: & # 39; These are examples of some psychopaths living in our midst. Then they shoot their wives to death and we are surprised! & # 39;
Virginia Gonzalez, who was shooting the abuse with her husband Ramon Feijoo on video, told a local TV station: “We heard a shot and then a dog barked and saw this man with a gun.
& # 39; He said he took the animal home, that he was a hunter and that he could do it. When we said we were going to call the police, he started dragging it over the floor with a rope around his neck.
& # 39; My husband started filming him because we didn't know what was going to happen. & # 39;
The images were later shared by animal rights organizations Mundo Vivo and PACMA.
The images show the moment when the hunter drags the injured animal through a tunnel before he dumps the dog on the ground.
The man then left the dog that was later taken to the animal hospital of Rof Codina.
Meanwhile, her six puppies, only 15 days old, were taken to an animal protection center.
The organization also shared some pictures of the puppies with the message: & # 39; these are the babies of the dog fighting for his life, the one who was shot, beaten up and dragged by a hunter in Chantada, Lugo … we hope he will face the full force of the law … we need example sentences for those monsters … who only deserve death & # 39 ;.
Mundo Vivo also said that the puppies are in good health.
