A MAN has been fined hundreds of Euros by a court in Fuengirola after his dog was found tied up and starved

According to a judge, the man left the dog, “without water or food fit for consumption and tied with a short chain of iron,”directly around his neck.

The man first came to the attention of animal welfare officers after a neighbour complained he was keeping his dog in a “poor state” of care and was “abandoned,” to his fate.
