His name was 'Messi', he was a Ca de Bestiar and almost two years old. His owner decided in March 2018 to end his life by shooting him in the head on a farm in Selva. The animal died almost instantly. The accused, 79 years old, wasyesterday in court in Palma and accepted a sentence of 16 months in prison and the prohibition of having animals for three and a half years. The man will not actually go to prison as his lawyer reached an agreement with the Prosecutor's Office so that the prison sentence will be suspended for a period of two years, provided that he does not reoffend during that period and that he takes a training course on animal protection.
