Yesterday the Spanish Authorities arrested the manager in charge at the
Farm El Escobar. The Spanish Authorities have already arrested four people
related with the case.
Just 48 hours after Animal Equality issued the
terrible images of brutality to animals on the Farm El Escobar, three
people were arrested for their involvement in the documented events. The
arrest of the three farmers who were
filmed smashing iron bars over the heads’ of pigs, and attacking and
killing the animals with swords, was confirmed yesterday by the Spanish
Authorities. A week later, the manager of the farm has also been arrested
for an alleged offence of animal abuse.
The investigations began on
the 21 of February when the video was made public by Animal Equality. The
Spanish Authorities inspected the facilities, with veterinary staff.
These actions could constitute an offence of animal abuse, which can carry a
sentence of up to one year’s imprisonment.
