A DOG owner who tried to get on bus in Huercal-Overa with their pet stuffed into a suitcase found themselves in trouble with the authorities.

Guardia Civil went to investigate the situation after a call to the 062 emergency service reporting someone at the bus station was trying to travel with a large dog shut into a not very large bag which had no ventilation.

Officers discovered the owner did not have the relevant health card for their animal. Nor had the dog been micro-chipped or registered on the council canine census.

The Guardia said the owner had violated the 2003 Andalucia Animal Protection law.

The Guardia also issued a reminder to the public to report any suspected cases of animal abuse.
