Poison river

MORE than 20 dogs have died due to drinking the water of the River Quisi in Benissa.  Some pets have been saved as their owners have managed to get them to the vet quickly.

I have advised people walking their dogs in the area not to allow their animals to drink this contaminated water.

Even the weeds have turned red in places.  The Guardia Civil had been advised at the time but I dont think anything has been done.

Apparently hunters put down poison to eradicate foxes which destroy their game.  This river water is crystal clear with no visible signs of poison.
It runs on through Urbanisation Rafol and into the sea at the dry river bed in Calpe.
