animal abuse tuineje

Animal abuse Tuineje
Radio Sintonia:

The Civil Guard investigates a case of animal abuse to find the bodies of three dogs in Fuerteventura.

The Civil Guard of Fuerteventura has reported on the investigation, on September 5, to a 23-year-old person for the alleged authorship of a crime of animal abuse by possessing inside a kennel the corpses of three dogs "tied and mummified" in the town of Tuineje.

SEPRONA became aware of the facts after receiving an anonymous call, which reported the possible mistreatment of several dogs in the town of Tuineje; although, he did not specify what they consisted of.

Immediately, the SEPRONA Patrol of Puerto del Rosario moved to the indicated place, being able to verify how inside a facility destined to kennel there were three mummified corpses of dogs and tied by chains. For this reason, the appropriate investigation was initiated to determine the causes of death and
possible criminal responsibilities that could arise.

The protocol of action established in these cases was activated, consisting of the collection of evidence (corpses), requiring the help of the veterinary services of the Central-South Commonwealth of Fuerteventura, which immediately moved to the place of discovery, for the transfer and corresponding study that will determine the possible causes of death, all being available to the
Judicial Authority.

On the other hand, as a result of the investigation carried out by the Civil Guard and the different evidence provided to the instruction of the proceedings, the owner of the bodies found was identified, and according to the first evidences they would have died of severe dehydration due to lack of water, chained and omission of the due care of their owner, a circumstance that was aggravated by the high temperatures reached in the months of July and August.

For all these reasons, the owner of the dogs was charged with a crime of animal abuse for omission of due care by sending the Police report to the corresponding guard court and the Environmental Prosecutor's Office in Puerto del Rosario.

This criminal typology is in Article 340.Bis of the Criminal Code, with a prison sentence of twelve to twenty-four months, in addition to the penalty of special disqualification of two to four years for the exercise of the profession, trade or trade that has to do with animals, as well as for possession of animals.
