Animal rights organisation ADEMAL has issued a formal denouncement against Lanzarote’s Cabildo for failure to comply with Spanish hunting laws.
ADEMAL accuse the Cabildo of failing to compile a list which would require hunters on the island to register each one of their hunting dogs, as well as report their cause of death.
According to ADEMAL’s legal representative, the failure to compile such a list could constitute an act of prevarication by the Cabildo.
ADEMAL claim that the existence of a list would reduce the amount of dogs that are abandoned each year, which they estimate at around 400 animals.
ADEMAL’s statement is particularly critical of Cabildo President María Dolores Corujo, who they claim “has always boasted of her support for animal rights while not carrying out a single measure to protect the animals.”
