British Expats in Marbella Fearful of Farmer Neighbour

British expatriates residing in Marbella are reportedly living in fear due to their farmer neighbour’s suspicious activities. The cause of their concern stems from hearing gunshots during the night and discovering visibly mistreated animals wandering around his property.

Disturbing Video Footage of Mistreated Animals

A video shared with the Olive Press reveals the disturbing condition of the animals on the farmer’s land. One goat is seen with a large wound on its ear, surrounded by flies. Another goat is barely able to see due to its swollen, seemingly infected eyes.

Witness Accounts of Animal Cruelty

A witness shared their experiences with the Olive Press, expressing the community’s fear and discomfort. They reported hearing gunshots at night and seeing animals in distressing conditions. The witness also mentioned a goat that was partially blinded, with its eye appearing white.

Community Efforts to Save the Animals

The witness expressed a desire to rescue the animals, noting that the farmer also kept dogs in cages. They reported the situation to the Guardia Civil, but were told to return later due to lack of time. The community is now gathering photographic and video evidence to report the landowner to the police.

Location of the Farm and New Animal Laws

The farm in question is located in Fuente del Espanto, situated between La Quinta and San Pedro in Marbella. This incident comes shortly after Spain implemented stringent new animal laws. Under these laws, anyone found guilty of mistreating or killing animals without justification could face fines up to €200,000 or even imprisonment.

Guardia Civil’s Response Awaited

The Olive Press has reached out to the Guardia Civil for a comment on the situation. The community eagerly awaits their response and action against the alleged animal cruelty.
