The cruel Spaniard left his pooch chained up in the sun for several days without food and water, according to police.

He also forced the animal to live in its own excrement at a property in his hometown of Estepona.

A shocking snap from the Guardia Civil’s Seprona division shows a skinny dog tied to a tree on some waste ground.

The owner was found guilty of an animal abuse crime at Estepona’s Court of First Instance and Instruction number 2.

His conviction of animal abuse under article 337 of the Criminal Code comes after a Seprona probe that began in August.
