The situation of Spanish greyhounds is so serious that last October 2011, the Animal Welfare Intergroup of the European Parliament demanded an explanation from Spain for the treatment of hunters give these dogs in our country, in a letter transmitting the Spanish President concerned about the extreme cases of cruelty documented by rescue organizations.
Greyhounds are'' severely beaten, burned, doused with acid, thrown into wells, in caves or abandoned tied to death by hunters when `` no longer serve, indicated in the letter, signed by several MEPs.
The letter reminded Spain that the Lisbon Treaty commits signatory states to ensure the welfare of animals, and called for a strengthening of national laws to bring an end to these atrocities.
Although a state law would have little room for maneuver because the responsibility for animal rights are transferred to the Autonomous Communities, with this initiative, requested in 2009 at the behest of then deputy Verds Initiative for Catalonia, Joan Herrera, expected that the Spanish Government to take a step beyond animal welfare and approved at last promised Animal Protection Act, one of the unfinished business of the last socialist government.

While Spanish greyhounds and other hunting dogs continue to suffer all kinds of abuse and assault, was first convened in Strasbourg an international demonstration in favor of their cause promoted by the French Association CREL (www.crel.fr), whose founders describe themselves as'' passionate about animals, the canine world, and more particularly the `` Spanish greyhounds.
'' After many years of volunteer work with several animal welfare groups (or against animal abuse) and the protection of greyhounds. After a hard work with the local press, Spanish and French government, following complaints from shelter dogs and hounds in Spain, after numerous petitions signed and sent, we regret to say that NOTHING HAS CHANGED FOR HOUNDS SPANISH MARTYRS, whose problem is still largely ignored in France and in Spain itself `` explain. '' Therefore, we decided to unite to fight and walk together! To join all the GOOD people that own dogs or not, or simply share our outrage at this human irresponsibility. ``
Now they hope to get the attention of public opinion bringing the tragedy of the Spanish greyhounds to Strasbourg, where they invite all citizens in solidarity with the animals to join them in the assembly and subsequent progress of the June 9, at 14.00 h., before the European Parliament.
