Dogs Caged And Kept In Shocking State At Farm Kennels In Spain  S Murcia Region

A MAN has been charged with animal abuse in Mazarron after a Guardia Civil raid on a farm which housed mainly Bullmastif dogs.

Guardia agents from Aguilas were tipped off about potential abuse at the farm and found around 20 dogs.

The kennels lacked any fresh water and the unhygienic state of the building was typified by large amounts of uncleared dog mess and urine.

The chance for the large dogs to exercise was minimal and they were kept in small cages.

One dead animal was discovered in a badly decomposed state which meant that that its breed could not be identified initially..

Besides being charged with animal abuse, the farm and kennel owner also faces proceedings over not having any licences for his business.

Despite the conditions, vets said that the dogs were in a relatively health state.
