Proceedings begin for presumed animal abuse for beating a dog to death


The events occurred on 28 April in Santander, when a resident left her dog, a seven-year old Catalan Shepherd, on the sidewalk in front of a supermarket while she entered to go shopping. Upon leaving the supermarket and seeing an individual hitting her dog Blas twice, the owner called the dog and it came to her, dying at her feet.

The presumed aggressor, a 25-year old male, waited until the Local Police arrived.

The Local Police of Santander have sent the investigation findings to the District Court, still awaiting the images filmed by a security camera that was installed where the events occurred. The events could constitute the crime of animal abuse.
