Man charged for abusing and abandoning animals


The events took place in Villarejo del Valle (Ávila), where SEPRONA (Service for the Protection of Nature) intervened after notices from several neighbors reported that there several equine farm animals were wandering in the area.

The horses were found in “an evident state of abandonment” and “extremely thin”, which caused the death of one of the horses. For this reason, on March 4, E.A.H., a 67 year old resident, was charged with the presumed crime of abuse as established with sentencing guidelines in article 337 of the Civil Code in article 631.2.
