A GRANADA man is under investigation by Seprona after it was discovered he had left his two dogs to die without any food or water

Guardia Civil officers from the Service for the Protection of Nature (Seprona) unit of Granada, are reported to be investigating a 36-year-old man who has numerous police records, suspected of being the perpetrator of a crime against flora, fauna, and domestic animals, after he was found to have left his two dogs to die of hunger and thirst in the municipality of Vegas del Genil.

In another incident, a 20-year-old man is under investigation as the alleged perpetrator of a crime related to flora and fauna, for hunting big game in a private hunting ground, using an artificial light installed in his vehicle, and without any authorisation from the landowner.

A Seprona patrol snared the unsuspecting young poacher as he was leaving the Jorquera and Las Lanzas hunting preserve, in the municipality of Puebla de Don Fadrique, after having shot a fallow deer from his off-road vehicle with the help of a powerful halogen spotlight, and a long-range flashlight.
