We have always had a very hard relationship with animals in my country, Spain. Folklore, rituals and festivities have been using animals as a way to signal certain dates and have fun for a long time with the backing of the state. Bullfighting is just an example of it and a popular one, but there are many other animals who also suffer in silence our so-called sports and traditions. The Galgo is one of those cases. The Galgo been in tales and myths, by the side of kings and queens and in art history for centuries. It was a very special dog that only people of noble birth could have, but now it’s worth has changed and galgos are, after being used for the hunting season, killed in the thousands. Between 50.000 and 10.000 galgos are killed or abandoned during each hunting season in Spain.
