ALICANTE City’s Plaza de Luceros recently played host to more than 100 people, Pacma and other animal protection societies who all gathered to demand a ban on hunting with dogs.
Also present was the city’s Animal Protection councillor, Marisol Moreno.
Organised by the ‘No hunting with dogs’ platform, the demonstration was also attended by dog owners, accompanied by their greyhounds and hunting dogs.
‘Greyhounds and other dogs used for hunting live in dreadful conditions and they are taught to be violent. When they are no longer of use they are killed and they die awful deaths’, one of the protesters said.
Further demonstrations are planned, calling for tougher sentences for ill-treating animals.
