The six people who faced charges in court for organising or taking part in an illegal tiger hunt on a private estate in Badajoz, Extremadura, in December 2005 have all escaped prison.

Manuel Domínguez, the owner of the land known as ‘Los Lunares’, was sentenced to two years in jail, but being his first sentence ts has been suspended. Domínguez was found guilty of obtaining the animals from zoos and circuses in order to organise the illegal hunts which also saw wolves being imported from Holland and Germany.

Two of the hunters, Tomás de la Flor and David Jiménez, were sentenced to 18 months in jail, and three employees at the estate were given ten months sentences.
