Man arrested in Ponferrada on the presumption of animal abuse


On March 26 SEPRONA [Service for the Protection of Nature] of Ponferrada detained a resident of Cabañas Raras on the presumption of animal abuse, as established with sentencing guidelines in article 337 of the Criminal Code.

Various local residents contacted the Civil Guard about the presumed continued abuse of a dog, a black and white setter, which had disappeared rapidly. According to the investigation by SEPRONA, the owner of the farm and the dog repeatedly beat the dog with blunt objects every time it barked in his presence.

The procedure is now in the preliminary judicial phase, processed in District Court number 6 of Ponferrada.
