A MAN from Costa del Sol’s Malaga has been charged with a crime of animal abuse and sentenced to three months in prison.

A court in Malaga has sentenced a man for having several horses locked up in a farm and kept in appalling conditions. The man has been sentenced for a crime of animal abuse. The imposed three months in prison has been replaced by a fine to pay over six months, at a rate of six euros per day, giving a total of 1080 euros.

The events took place in June 2014. The accused was the tenant of a property in Alora (Malaga) who had not provided the animals, four horses and several dogs, with sufficient food or water.

Two horses were found dead, one of them a mare; and seven dogs, all of which presented signs of malnutrition and dehydration.

A third horse died the day after the rescue, when the animals were taken to an animal rescue shelter.

In addition to the prison sentence, which was replaced by a fine, the accused was ruled “unfit” to trade with animals in any way and has been prohibited from keeping them for a period of one year.
