35 Years too late!

Recommended Posts

In September 1986 I was living in Swansea and riding a Z650. I'd never been to Spain......and knew nothing about the place!

Over in Spain, those were the early years of democracy following Franco's death in 1975, and it was round that time that Japanese motorcycles were finally allowed to be imported.

The population were migrating to the cities looking for work, which is why so many things are abandoned in rural areas. I'm sure in many cases the original owners can't be traced, so these places are just left until they eventually collapse into a pile of rubble.

I've visited many......but never one like this! It's been abandoned since 1986 cos I found a magazine with that date in there - in fact this is one of the few where I can actually pinpoint a date!

Warning......some of the photos and parts of the vid may be unpleasant to you. They are to me......and to be honest, I wish I'd never gone there!

Watch the intro to the vid and decide if you want to continue!

This is where it starts to get hard.......

Three of them were locked in, collars still attached, and left to die! They were small Podencos!

Worst bit is over......but I was still upset by what I saw! And of course I didn't know if I was going to find any more!

Time to go.......that was enough for me!

And as you see, there was even a bit of offroad action to get access to it!

So that was it! I've rescued a lot of animals (mainly dogs) in my life......but sadly, I was 35 years too late to help them!

That's very sad if they were tied up and left to die but as you probably know only too well some people don't deserve to have animals 😔

People have seen old hunting dogs hung from trees as well!

Fortunately I've never run into that myself!

Poor dogs.... there are some wicked bastards . 

Seeing that fucked the day right up for me!

Over here you will find skeletons of animals from time to time......but that's out in the wild and nature has taken it's course.

These were just locked in and starved to death deliberately.

Thinking how long it took them to perish like that, and the stress they went through, is guaranteed to make you sad.

Haven't seen much of you lately Pedro......you OK?

Not so much, caught some kind of bug a week and a half ago and got high fever and weakness, not covid but it did take energy out of me. Am slowly coming around.

Not quite, I can’t explain and the symptoms didn’t make sense to me. Sofia and her vet friend guess it was some kind of blood parasite like a tick bite or similar, I’ll have a few blood tests done in a few days.

Please do. If only to eliminate Lyme disease from the equation.

I hope they didn't put the thermometer in your mouth to check your temperature
