(Warning, Upsetting Content): Why do you think Spain has policies and people that are more often cruel to animals than most other places and people?
I just got back from a farm, where I was visiting a friend. While I was there I witnessed some pretty bad treatment of animals.
Firstly, I witnessed the farm owners decapitate 3 giant pigs, in a way that is forbidden by law. Namely hanging them by the jaw on hooks, before attempting to stab them in the heart via the mouth, and then decapitating them. This I can kind of understand, as they are just killing them for personal use, as food. Many people eat meat, and someone has to kill it, however I would have preferred they do it according to the law.
However, I also was witness to the execution of a dog, that was killed by having its skull bashed in with an iron bar. The reason given was that the dog was no good for hunting, and would be better dead than left to roam wild and possibly suffering a slow death from starvation.
Then to top it all off, I over heard them talking about traveling tomorrow to go watch a bull fight.
I know they are farm people, and that they have a different way of life, but I could not help but think they were too cold blooded towards animals.
Why do you think, that in the UK, comedian Jhonny Vegas is forbidden by law from keeping pets, because someone filmed him dancing with a dog at a party, yet in Spain, you are more or less allowed to kill or torture any animal, with the only real way of getting in trouble being to get sued by another person for harming an animal they own?
