Baas Galgo has been more than four years denouncing the practice of hanging of galgos in the municipality of Fuensalida (Toledo). More than four years with lawsuits and several lodged complaints and nothing has changed. Yesterday, April 23, new bodies of hanged galgos have appeared in Fuensalida (Toledo), and we know that there are more yet to find.We ask the competent authorities of Fuensalida, the Seprona and the autonomous community of Castilla-La Mancha that investigate, prosecute and punish with all the resources that the law gives them the perpetrators of such offences of animal abuse, outlawed and punishable in our criminal code.We call on all citizens of good that they know or are aware of such facts, who report to put an end once and for all so cruel torture, repeated year after year, and remain the most absolute impunity.We ask that you help the Spanish Galgo and join our fight.Thank you!

Thank you, this is a sad topic, but highly worthy of attention.
The hangings of galgos has been an age old habit in Spain, and I only wish I knew why. There is no more horrid way to die than the way of the galgo. It is an unforgivable way. I don't understand the brutality and torture hunters have in them......

This is heartbreaking! Just thinking about the fate of the poor greyhounds makes me physically ill. I cringed just looking at the one photo of the greyhound skull. This practice is sadistic, barbaric, evil, and makes these people, and anyone who supports cruelty of any kind to any animal SICK! Please allow the dogs to be adopted by people who would give them good, loving homes. This is MURDER!!

So awful. I cannot even understand the reasoning behind a slow cruel death- it's a dog, it didn't mean to not hunt up to your impossible standards on purpose!
