LOCAL Police in Elche this week went to investigate a farm where they had been informed of potential abuse of animals. The reports were correct, as they found two badly malnourished dogs and two other dead dogs on the property.
The sick animals were taken to a vet while police tried to contact the farms owner who was not on the property when they called. Apart from being undernourished, it was clear that the animals had been kept in an inadequate environment where even excrement had not been cleaned up. The dogs that were still alive were in such poor health that they probably would have died within a few days without police intervention said reports.
