Spain's Hunting Dogs1 Replies
Hello All, Many people may not be aware of the terrible fate of some of Spain's hunting dogs. They may be killed heartlessly at the end of the hunting season, sometimes by the slow and agonising method of 'piano-playing' - the dog is hanged by the neck but can just reach the ground. The piano-playing refers to the click of its toes on the ground as it desperately scrabbles around until it tires and succumbs. This can take a long time. Other dogs are insufficiently fed, kennelled and exercised. A Spaniard has started a petition to present to the Spanish government to bring about some long overdue legislation to protect these animals. Please sign the petition and pass it on to all your friends, Spanish and English, so that the total of 500,000 required signatures can be reached (see link below, you may need to copy and paste into your browser). http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/293/313/901/ Thank you so much.
