ABSTRACT

Three years after the death of the bear called Porley (name taken from the location where it was found, in the municipality of Cangas del Narcea, Asturias), which was caught in a loop, the Criminal Court has pronounced dictating acquittal that has become firm because it was not appealed.

The case caused great media attention and the oral trial took long sessions divided into 3 separate days, with numerous witnesses and experts who testified. Despite the numerous proofs which were presented and the substantial evidence against the accused, both were acquitted.
