Save our hunting dogs in Spain. Include them in the animal welfare PET spanish laws.

I am spanish. Every year our spanish government allows that thousands of healthy galgos (greyhounds) and podencos be sent to death by their owners, either through Perreras (Death Animal Control) or by hunging them on trees (so called Muerte del Pianista - Pianist Death or Typewrite Death) until they slowly die there, once the hunting period is over. This, according to many hunters is a reward they give their dogs -------- The Typewriter." Through this method, people hang the dogs by the neck just high enough so that they have to support themselves using their back legs. The dogs get too tired to stand any longer, so they collapse and hang themselves, slowly dying in agony and terror. It's called "The Typewriter" because of the noise the dogs' nails make as they skitter frantically on the ground, trying to get free.. This is a very SLOW CRUEL DEATH ---------- Those dogs because hunting brings a lot of royalties to the spanish government are not considered by the spanish laws as pets but as working labor/animals. The animal spanish welfare laws do not protect their lifes. I am spanish and feel horrified such sadism be perfectly known and accepted by not including those dogs in the animal spanish welfare protection laws which will oblige each owner to have only 5 legally declared dogs. There are hundreds of animal welfare associations in Spain and abroad such Germany, Switzerland, Netherlands, etc... trying to rescue those dogs but as laws do not protect those hunting dogs, it is a non stop continous labor which never ends and owners do what they want with their lives. Animals do not speak. They cannot defend themselves. We, humans can help them to do this because our voices can be heard. Spanish laws require 500,000 signatures (Constitución Española 1978, Art. 87.3) to be able to bring a request for a new law to Las Cortes in Madrid. PLEASE, PLEASE, help them.

BEWARE: Should you feel capable of seeing strong, cruel, unpleasant pictures from what is going in Spain with our hunting dogs, this is a link to be seen:

TRADUCCION EN ESPAÑOL (TRANSLATION INTO SPANISH)

Salvemos nuestros perros de caza en España. Incluyámosles en las leyes de protección animal españolas. Cada año nuestros gobiernos permiten que miles de galgos sanos sean enviados por sus propietarios , bien a Perreras (Campos de Exterminación Animal) o mueran colgados de los arboles (la llamada Muerte del Pianista o del  Escritor en su Maquina de Escribir) una vez que el periodo de caza termina. Este procedimiento, para algunos de los dueños de estos perros es una recompensa que ofrecen a sus animales. -------  Esta muerte se realiza colgando a los animales del cuello de manera que puedan apoyar todo su peso utilizando las patas de atrás. Los perros se cansan, sus patas traseras no les aguantan, y se ahorcan ellos mismos, muriendo lentamente con agonía y terror. Se llama de esta forma por el chasquido de las uñas sobre el suelo intentando escapar de este infierno. Es una muerte LENTA, CRUEL, MEDIEVAL --------- Puesto que la caza es un deporte caro y aporta muchos ingresos a las arcas, las leyes de protección animal no incluyen a estos animales y son considerados como animales de trabajo. Soy española, he vivido muchos años en el extranjero, no pertenezco a ninguna sociedad protectora pero sin embargo esta permisividad de nuestras leyes y este sadismo conocido y permitido me horroriza. Solicito se incluyan a todos los perros sin excepción alguna en las leyes de protección animal no permitiendo semejantes salvajadas. Existen numerosas protectoras de animales en España y fuera de España como Suiza, Alemania, Holanda, etc… salvando nuestros animales pero es una labor sin fin y que no alcanza toda la sangrienta matanza que se realiza con estos animales sanos. Son nuestros animales y tenemos que salvarlos nosotros. Los animales no hablan. Nosotros podemos defenderles porque nosotros hablamos. Dejemos de ser considerados en el extranjero país tercermundista con actuaciones de esta índole. Pertenezcamos realmente a la Unión Europea y no porque lo digamos sino porque lo somos en realidad. Las leyes españolas solicitan 500.000 firmas acreditadas (Constitución Española 1978, Art. 87.3)para llegar a Las Cortes de Madrid y solicitar se promulguen nuevas leyes. Firmemos para ayudarles y si las Cortes nos desoyen sigamos mas arriba. La unión hace la fuerza. Las guerras no se ganan en una sola batalla. POR FAVOR FIRMEN.

We want that all animals, all spanish dogs be included in the spanish laws for animal welfare, with no exception.

I want to apologize.I thought the spanish laws require 50,000 valid signatures to bring to court a request for a new law. I went into the Constitucion Española Law, article 87.3 and realize they require 500,000 valid signatures. We are far from them. Keep on spreading the word. Thank you. INFO: In care2 petition site there is another petition not mine for a dog hanged by hunters in Villacañas, Spain.

Hi everybody,
I want to thank all of you for caring for those animals. We will be reaching the goal of 50,000 signatures but would ask you to sign further more. The more signatures we get, the more we can force the authorities to pay attention to this matter.
