New Animal Protection Laws Introduced In Spain

A new law has been introduced in Spain making it illegal to cut the tails and ears of animals, remove their teeth or claws or cut their vocal chords.     Animals must be anaesthetised before an operation that may cause pain, and can only be put down by a vet, except in emergencies.  The National Association for the Defence of Animals has welcomed the ruling which also forbids offering pets as prizes.
