Our podenca HERMINA went missing last saturday (she would never run away, she had either been shut or stolen!!!) and on sunday we went searching for her with 4 quats, several 4wheel drive cars, 2 trial motorbikes and even 2 horses, imagine we did over 1000km all togehter and NO sign from our dear HERMINIA but we then heared in the bar, that near our house a brown white dog was found hanged. You can imagine, I was close to a heartattack so we called the police, they did not know anything, then thanks to the village gossip we wound out where it was and went there. The hanged dog was a breton spaniel, white with brown spots. It had been done on the premises of a company not even 4 km from my house.

we spoke to the person who had reported the case to the police, a very nice man and a big animal lover. He gave me the picture I published as well as a copy of the police report.
Imagine, one of the guy accused lives in MY village, I know this jerk from the bar we take breakfast sometimes, I saw him hunting!!!!
His car was seen on the premises of company where the dog was found, so most probably he has something to do with it… imagine how hard it is to go into the village and have to look into his face and not kicking his balls!
Luckily the Guardia Civil is very helpfull and will do everything to make sure that the case will not be dismissed or archived. Señor Gabriel, the nice man who reported the case  invited us to be added to the “denuncia”, we also asked all refuges and animal welfare organisations to join the cause but as far as I know none has been added to the case yet.

Some friends and animal lovers and Señor Gabriel have promised that we will not rest until this case has been propperly investigated and the people responsable for that will have their courtcase.
On saturday 27th I have been invited to the Guardia Civil in El Vendrell to talk about the investigation and to check if the disappearing of HERMINIA has anything to do with the case because the hunters hated her, saying that she is killing all “their rabbits” on OUR land and insinuating that sooner or later a hunter will misunderstand for a wild boar!!!!

During our search action for HERMINIA we found: 6 abandoned dogs. terribly shy, impossible to take in, all hunting breeds and their mixes, 2 dead dogs runover by cars, 2 shot cats, and over 500 highly contaminating bulletcases

    I pray that this evil b*****d gets a suitable punishment from the courts – I doubt it though…….

    I pray justice will be served. I know this poor dog is safe now with God and his Angels.

    I have been all over Spain many times, and one of my best life-long friends is a high officer retired from th Spanish Navy, so on the one hand I am appalled that this could happen in a country that I know and love and is full of dog lovers, but on the other hand am happy to note that the full weight of the Guardia Civil is being applied to this horrible matter. Arriba, senores!

    only sad people need to feel better by torturing and/or killing animals. Disgusting !

    These dogs are being betrayed in the worst way and the perpetrators must be found and punished, this behavior is cruel and unnecessary as these dogs cannot defend themselves against such unbridled hate. The people responsible are sick and need to be locked up, as they will continue to do this because they know no compassion and abuse runs rampant in these soulless, poor excuse for human beings.
