Sentenced for Animal Abuse for Gravely Harming Dog after Defecating in the House


On Wednesday, June 12, a trial for animal abuse was celebrated in Criminal Court number 9 of Madrid.

The acts to be judged started there on June 5, 2008, when, according to testimonies and the provisional description of accusations (Prosecutor’s Office and El Refugio [Refuge] protector society) the accused saw his dog “Chula” had defecated in the house, which provoked him to kick the dog.

The dog died due to a hepatic fracture of traumatic origin and the presumed perpetrator was detained after the actions were denounced by the two veterinarians who attended the dog.

We are awaiting the sentencing.
