Stronger sentence for animal abuse applied in appeals process after sentecngnig in district court


The Provincial Audience of Teruel has partially approved the appeal requested by the animal protection society Amigo Mío [My Friend] against the judgment which sentenced a man for abusing a dog. In accordance with the request of the appellant, the man sentenced may not exercise any profession or trade related with animals and the dog will be turned over to the protector society on a permanent basis.

On the contrary, the appeals court dismissed the following: the disqualification for the purchase and ownership of animals due to lack of legal justification for this prohibition; an increased payment for the protector, as the society was not the owner of the dog; and the increase of the prison sentence from four to twelve months due to not having sufficient argument to assign the maximum sentence.
