Costa del Sol man fined for tying dog up in summer sun

Guardia Civil made 3 arrests in Torrevieja on the Costa Blanca

A MAN who chained his dog up under the summer sun with no food or water for several days has been fined €8 a day for three months. 

An Estepona court heard that Guardia Civil nature protection agents (Seprona) had visited an address in the Costa del Sol town following a complaint made in August. 

There they were confronted by the sight of the starving dog lying covered in its own excrement. 

The court considered the case proven after considering a report from the College of Veterinarians of Malaga who worked with Seprona on the case. 

The man was found guilty of a ‘misdemeanour of animal abuse.’
