The Guardia Civil in Armilla are investigating two locals for allegedly abandoning a dog in an Urbanización in Peligros.
Unfortunately for the two suspects, aged 50 and 43, a resident of the said urbanización actually saw them getting rid of the dog by dumping it from their car and driving off with the dog running behind until it tired. He also recorded it on his mobile phone and posted in on a social-media platform.
On the 7th of October the Asociación de Animales Abandonados de Granada spotted the video and placed a formal denuncia before Seprona (Guardia Civil) along with a copy of the video.
It didn’t take long for the Guardia Civil to track down the owners as the car numberplate was visible in the video, but in the meantime they inspected the dog and found that it had no identity chip nor was it registered on the Registro Andaluz de Identificación Animal.
The owners now face charges of abandoning a pet, not registering it and not maintaning the necessary medical vaccinations etc.
