Sentencing for a hunting reserve guard who shot and killed a dog


Criminal Court number 1 Jaén has prepared the sentence against the hunting reserve guard who was accused of the presumed crime of animal abuse killing a dog with a shotgun. The accused declared that he killed the animal, a gold retriever which he found along with the dog´s owner in a farmhouse, but that he acted in self-defense and that he is authorized by the Government of Andalucía to kill wild animals in the reserve.

The Prosecutor removed the charges of animal abuse and accused the man with the crime of damages, for which he requested the man pay a fine.
