The shepherd of the dogs that this Monday killed a young woman on a rural road in Zamora may face charges of reckless homicide, as indicated by the Government delegate in Castilla y León, Virginia Barcones.
“The dogs were loose and without the presence of the owner of the farm. There were seven dogs: three mastiffs, two shepherd dogs and two puppies less than a month old of a shepherd dog,” Barcones explained this Tuesday in statements to the press at the Salamanca Civil Guard Command, after presenting an operation against cybercrime.
The owner of the livestock farm is scheduled to testify this morning before the judge and the crime he could face after the investigation of the facts is that of reckless homicidethe delegate reported.
“The Civil Guard is investigating and clarifying responsibilities. The dogs are in quarantine and will be brought before the courts to determine their fate,” said Barcones.
The delegate has also specified that four of the dogs were correctly identified and vaccinated and there is a fifth “that is not” and it is being investigated whether “due to age there was no obligation for it to be that way.”
