Woman detained then released, after dog dies

A WOMAN, aged 27, was arrested in Spain after her dog died from strangulation and heatstroke, amid the European heatwave.

The 27-year-old was held on alleged charges of animal abuse after her “dying” pet was spotted on a Valladolid balcony, chained to railings in the sun, at the Calle Caamaño property.

Once police officers saw the animal “panting intensely” and could not break in, firefighters were called to rescue the suffering animal.

A vet confirmed the cause of death as “suffocation due to strangulation”, adding that “heatstroke” could also have been a factor.

But the accused woman was later released from custody because of the state of her health.
