AN illegal breeding ground for dangerous dogs was raided in Crevillent on the Costa Blanca. Agents from Seprona, the Guardia Civil’s animal protection unit, rescued roughly 30 dogs from horrendous conditions.
The owner of the sparse plot of land, a 34-year-old local man, has been arrested and charged with nine offences. He had no licences or insurance, while all the dogs lacked passports, microchips and vaccinations.
Among them were 21 adult dogs of a variety of breeds considered dangerous and requiring a special licence. The rest were puppies the man was raising to breed and sell.
The conditions were poor and unsanitary. Seprona agents observed that such breeds may be absolutely fine if raised with love and care. But when held in such barbaric captivity with a malicious owner, they can pose an extreme danger to humans. As covered by EWN, a pack of five such dogs recently killed a farmer in Beniarbeig.
