Matilhas Lezirias do Ribatejo is a Portuguese Company that promotes and organizes hunts and hunting competitions in Portugal and Spain.

They are so proud of their work to have a fan page on Facebook:

They also upload videos to attract hunters: 

 Hunting is a barbarian tradition, a shame that should be banned worldwide. We left our caverns centuries ago, we don't need to kill anyone, especially for "fun"

Moreover, the dogs are subjected to deplorable sanitary conditions and starvation in order to have better hunting performance. When they get injured end up being left to die or are killed by their owners.

It's about time to STOP animal abuse, we can't tolerate it anymore!

Letter to
World Organisation for Animal Health
Green Party Portugal Grupo Parlamentar do Partido Ecologista "Os Verdes
We, the undersigned, ask you to take action to protect either the dogs and the animals hunted. We also ask you to investigate on the company activity, and punish every abuse. It can't be legal to hunt in a pigpen, as it can't be lagal to starve dogs: this is a clear violation of any animal welfare declarations.
It is impossible to contemplate supporting any country, via tourism or commerce, that excuses such blatant animal cruelty; as a direct consequence, the global community, refusing to defend this maliciousness, will condemn any further exploitation through personal boycotts. Ours is not an ambiguous request; you should understand that further killing will prove not only socially unacceptable but also financially irresponsible. Rather than choose complicity in the savage treatment of animals, your community can avoid any potential global boycotts by observing compassion instead.
Thank you for your time, and your action
