A severe case of animal brutality has been reported from sources on Facebook. The page “Save dogs from Being Killed”, is asking for help to stop the brutal slaughter of Galgos(Spanish Greyhounds) at the hands of the racing industry.
The murder of Galgos killed in Spain is not uncommonly performed by placing an erect stick in their mouths, so as not to allow the dog to drink or eat for long periods(5 or 6 days). The dog will obviously succumb to starvation and thirst. This torture and agony can last for many day and is a cheap way for the racing industry to be rid of the dogs that can no longer “perform” adequately. Over 50.000 Galgos are killed this way, annually.
Martín Mora Piñeiro shared this video with us in regard to the subject which affected him so much:
