Photoshopped image of hanging dog statue is fake - Animal Advocates, Mary Cummins, galguero

Real spain statue greyhound dog hunter madrid verses photoshopped dog hanging from tree

Since 2009 this image has been used in petitions, hate pages all over the Internet in every language to attack racers, hunters, dog fighters, dog eaters, dog abusers.... I received it saying it was a statue honoring dog hunting in Spain. Then they asked people to sign a stupid petition to "outlaw dog hunting in spain." I'm Spanish. We don't hunt dogs. I think petition sites do this to stir people up so they'll sign their worthless petitions so they can get and sell your email address. It is clearly fake and photoshopped. I post the real image below it.

Here is the story in Spanish. A person saw the statue honoring those who hunt with dogs. They were upset and made a shitty photoshop to show what they felt that people who hunt with dogs actually do.

and another

Galgueros are people who own greyhounds. Originally they were used to hunt food. Later they were used to hunt hares as a competition. Even later they were used to race which is why they have a fake hare as a lure in front of the dogs to get them to go around the track. That said some people who used dogs to hunt did hang their dogs when they were no longer useful. This is not something all dog racers or people who hunt with dogs do. They said hanging was less painful to the dog than shooting them. I'm obviously against anyone using animals and discarding them in this manner. I feel cats, dogs are pets which should be cherished. Wild animals should live in the wild.

Please, do some research before you forward things like this. With image recognition software I found the real image and story within 30 seconds. One person even said this was a statute or honor a Korean man who hunts dogs for food. This is insulting to so many people in so many ways. Snopes.
