Members of the associations advocacy and protective of animals have demanded today the authorities of Punta Umbría put brake to "wild and indiscriminate" killing dogs that have occurred "as a fun" in the last days.
Shot dead dogs lie at different points in the area of pine forests below the sea pine. Apparently, an Association of hunters of the coastal town have been called by the City Council and would have the blessings of the Junta de Andalucía to the abandoned dogs, days after a pack of hounds will cause the death of a foal. Representatives of associations concerned move tomorrow to Punta Umbria to try to stop the killing.
Observatory on courts and Defensa Animal has already moved a petition to management which stresses that "domestic animals abandoned to their fate are victims of the human carelessness and the lack of adequate control measures" by the Administration, which must always act in accordance with the legislation on animal protection which requires capture and handling of animals avoiding violent methods or involving damage to the animal.
"Hunting for pets is immoral and illegal especially when alternative measures in line with current legislation and with the popular feeling that rejects flat hunting dogs and therefore that they must cease urgently are not planned". In the news, Add, There are technical means and human that make possible a humanitarian protocol with abandoned pets "without that it is justified in any case hunting and shooting death of these dogs".
