ANIMAL charities and supporters gathered in Benidorm to peacefully protest about the latest in a string of animal cruelty.
Following the horrific image in last week’s Euro Weekly News regarding the cat that had been left hanging from a tree for a reported 36 hours, combined with a social media outcry about the continuing cruelty of cats in the area, the Asociación Felinos Lo Morant organised a gathering at the location where the latest incident had occurred.
Many residents and animal charities gathered at the property to express their feelings and demand that the authorities take immediate action.
The protest held outside the house in calle de Entrepinos in Benidorm was an opportunity for people to express their disgust at the horrific death of a cat but also to highlight that this was not an isolated incident.
Olga de La Pompa and Mariola Terrer from the Association Somos Gos were joined by representatives from Appa, Peluts de la Marina and members of the public.
Olga told the Euro Weekly News: “We are here to show our support for all animals, to ensure that this barbaric act does not go unpunished.”
The National Police kept a discrete presence whilst everyone united to call for the cruelty to stop.
