SUMMARY

District Court no. 2 of Mula (Murcia) resolved in favor of urgent precautionary measures with regards to the properties, activities and the person of a father and son, upon receiving information of a presumed crime of animal abuse by both persons, and a presumed case of violating the sentence by the son, according to a report (lawsuit) and petition for precautionary measures by two Animal Protector Associations. The accused fed animals with waste from fried potatoes which they obtained from a manufacturer. The author of the commentary, an attorney for the popular accusation in this proceeding, highlights the most relevant aspects of this precautionary measure: confiscation of 160 animals; closing of four installations; naming the protectors as the legal guardians; temporary authorization and handover of the keys of one of them to a protector to care for the livestock (53 sheeps and goats); removal of arms. And, specifically, the suspension of breeding, purchasing and selling activities and ownership of animals.
