Judgment of the Criminal Court
Resolution of imprisonment of the Criminal Court
Final resolution of the Provincial Court

SUMMARY:

This commentary reflects the highlights of a pioneering case in the application of the crime of animal abuse in Spain: the dog named ‘Mix’, whose owner left to die of malnutrition in Palma de Mallorca. In the application of the condemnatory judgement, the judge rejected the request of the offender to substitute imprisonment by a fine, determining that the prison penalty should be enforced effectively, a judicial decision which was later confirmed by the Provincial Court.
