| The agents have apprehended nearly a hundred animals that were in terrible hygienic-sanitary conditions | The owner of the property is allegedly responsible for two crimes related to the protection of flora, fauna and domestic animals The Benemérita has had the collaboration of the CARM Animal Health Service, the Cleaning and Disinfection Service, the 'El Valle' Fauna and Flora Recovery Center in Murcia and an animal recovery center in Mazarrón The Civil Guard of the Region of Murcia, in collaboration with the Moratalla Local Police, the Animal Health Service of the CARM, the Cleaning and Disinfection Service, the 'El Valle' Fauna and Flora Recovery Center and a Mazarrón animal recovery center, has developed the operation 'Campanero', which has resulted in the investigation of a neighbor of Moratalla as the alleged perpetrator of two crimes related to the protection of flora, fauna and domestic animals due to animal abandonment and tenure of protected species of wild fauna and the recovery of nearly a hundred animals that were in terrible hygienic-sanitary conditions. Members of the Nature Protection Service (SEPRONA) of the Civil Guard opened the operation a few days ago, to investigate events related to the poor condition in which a large number of animals were allegedly found in a Moratalla home. Once all the indications were obtained and prior judicial authorization, SEPRONA and personnel from the collaborating institutions carried out the inspection at the property, where they found nearly a hundred animals, including domestic animals, for supply and protected species, which were in terrible hygienic-sanitary conditions. During the inspection, the civil guards observed the presence of excrement and urine from the different animals that it housed, scattered throughout the rooms, as well as the deplorable conditions of the house that made the place an uninhabitable place, with dirt and a strong smell of garbage and rot. About a hundred animals in terrible conditions The participants in the inspection registered the animals found in the home, including domestic animals, animals for slaughter and protected species of wildlife, all without any sanitary documentation to protect their possession and without access to food or water. Dead animals in an advanced state of decomposition such as dogs, rabbits, chickens, chickens and pigeons were also observed in the different rooms of the house. During the inspection, protected species of wild fauna (Fringílidos) could be observed locked in one of the rooms of the house, as well as a Vietnamese pig, considered an invasive species. The agents have seized all the domestic animals and protected species existing in the home, which have been handed over to wildlife recovery centers. The slaughter animals that were in the place, after their examination by a medical veterinarian, have had to be slaughtered and removed by a management company, as they are considered a risk to public health and animal health. The Civil Guard has completed the operation 'Campanero' with the investigation of the owner of the house and responsible for the animals existing in it, who has been instructed as the alleged perpetrator of two crimes related to the protection of flora and fauna and domestic animals, for animal abandonment and for the possession of protected species of wild fauna. In addition, SEPRONA has formulated more than a dozen complaints for the detected infractions that are included in Law 4/2009, on Integrated Environmental Protection; Law 8/2003, on Animal Health and Law 42/2007 on Natural Heritage and Biodiversity. Crime of animal abandonment The crime related to the protection of flora, fauna and domestic animals by animal abuse or neglect, typified in the current Penal Code, is punishable by three months and one day to eighteen months in prison, and a special disqualification of one year and one day to four years for the exercise of the profession, trade or commerce that has relation with the animals, as well as for their possession. The investigated and the investigative proceedings have been made available to the Investigating Court of Caravaca de la Cruz (Murcia). Campaign against the abuse and abandonment of domestic animals #YoSiPuedoContarlo With the main objective of raising awareness among citizens so that they promote the necessary measures in the protection, management and welfare for domestic animals, as well as to denounce behaviors contrary to animal welfare of which they are aware, the Civil Guard began the campaign # I can tell. The Civil Guard has been detecting an increase in citizen awareness, not only through formal complaints, but also among users of social networks, as demonstrated by the fact that one of the topics that generates the most interaction among our Twitter followers and Facebook is the request for citizen collaboration to clarify crimes of mistreatment of animals. The second objective of this campaign is to make the population aware that having an animal is a great responsibility and that animal abandonment is punishable in the current Penal Code. #YoSiPuedoContarlo campaign If you want to join this campaign, record a video with the slogan "I can count it" or a photo with the hashtag #YoSiPuedoContarlo and upload it on your social network profile. Likewise, if you know of any case of mistreatment or abandonment of an animal, report it on the phone 062 in the email seprona@guardiacivil.org or in our social network profiles.
