|Increase the sentence for animal abuse in Spain!
|Addressed to: Ministry of Justice|
A hung ‘Galgos’ hunting dog which is of no use to its owner.
Batterers can have three months and one day to one year in prison, as well as disqualifications to practice any profession related to animals. These penalties may be aggravated depending on the circumstances in the specific case; in these cases, the Penal Code provides penalties of up to one and a half years in prison.
That is why we are asking the Ministry of Justice to renew the Animal Abuse Law so that the sentence is increased from 3 to 6 years, and a fine of at least 900 to 1500 euros, as a dog, a cat, a horse or any animal is a living being, and its life should be valued as much as ours.
No animal should have to endure the wrath of a negligent human or of a person who enjoys the suffering of an innocent creature, which would never intentionally seek to cause pain.
