Animal cruelty in Greece and everywhere
2 years ago

There is no such Thing as a "necessary" evil. Evil is just evil. And it is definitely and tragically evil to make helpless animals suffer for ones own shortcomings. And that is exactly what is Happening when People mistreat and torture helpless animals. Anyone who can even allow this to happen should be treated to some of the medicine doled out to the animals. Maybe that would help them get a life. Because without a heart there is no real life.

CYPRUS HORROR! - Dog beaten, put it in a bag and threw it in the trash

"The days of Christmas make us more affectionate. But not all. There are some people in our society which is worse than beasts and do not hesitate to abuse helpless creatures just to satisfy their sick fantasies.

A 'man' beat one helpless little dog, tied her paws, put in a bag and threw it in the trash to die. The tragic incident occurred in Orestiada and came to light from the fellow human being who realized that something was alive in the trash and saved the dog."

Olga Kefalogianni, Minister of Tourism in Greece: Enforce existing law on animal protection


Many people who come to your country do not want to return. Tourists are really shocked by the animal cruelty in Greece. On Crete there are chained dogs, alive skeletons, without water and food, in sunlight on higher temperature. Also dogs lock in a wooden crate, in direct sunlight. These images are repeating over and over again. Barbaric cruelty to animals in the streets and in shelters, live animals in dumpsters, dogs in cages which cannot move at all, until death end their suffering...

We say NO to the violent & illegal removal of 30 dogs from the private dog shelter of Mrs Niki at Velina, Corinth


We say NO to the violent & illegal removal of 30 dogs from the private dog shelter of Mrs Niki at Velina, Corinth


Niki Doukas  farm is 13 acres; the dogs are placed within groups where they can get along with each other, in bounded areas, with their kennels. NONE of them shows aggressive behavior. They are all vaccinated, subjected to deworming (inside-out), they have health booklets and they all love Mrs Niki and look her with a regard that cannot be described in words. All dogs are sterilized except some males, which had been scheduled for sterilization.

In the end of 2012, two neighbors, both have country houses at the opposite side of the farm, complained.

Court ordered removal of 30 dogs, without any clarification on WHERE THE ANIMALS WILL BE TAKEN, but at the same time, there is a possibility left open, that the "neighbors" can remove the animals by their own means, while Mrs Niki will be asked to pay the bill.

Some people are always against "a crazy woman on the mountain gathering dogs". But what dogs? The dogs that some "responsible" citizens abandoned and dumped on the mountain to get rid, and ignored by the Municipality! Furthermore, the vast majority of dogs are shepherds and hounds.

We need help (we do not ask for money) for the disclosure of our facts is desperately indispensable, any nice word gives us strength to continue, any idea, any kind of concern will help us. And we commit ourselves not to draw away and to exhaust every legal right of the animals to exist in dignity and every right of Mrs Niki to take care of them and love them; every right to STAND UP AGAINST ANY MENTALITY THAT MATCHES BYGONE TIMES AND BYGONE ETHICS.


Thank you for your time

Subject: GREECE, CHANIA: MASS POISONING OF SHELTER DOGS

Dear Mr Skoulakis,

This news is truly appalling and warrants an immediate investigation at the highest level.

http://www.animalscare.gr/action/abuse/493-kaina.html

The shelter near Vamos, which offers sterilisation vaccination, care and welfare for many of Chania’s dumped, abandoned and unwanted dogs, runs entirely on the financial donations from overseas charity and is situated on privately owned land.

It is disgraceful that this shelter operated by volunteers and costing Cretan people or your authority NOTHING has suffered from harassment for years from land-owners in the surrounding area. The shelter does not cause any problems for residents, the fencing is secure, and the site is not in a populated area.

You must be aware of the many past threats and problems caused to these volunteers and the animals in their care. Why has authority action NOT been taken to protect, promote and assist the extremely valuable work which they do?

This horrendous event and the publicity it has rightly received have once again dramatically affected Chania’s animal care lack of provision and reputation.

We ask for an immediate thorough investigation together with a press release that this abject mindless and illegal cruelty will NOT be tolerated and actions will be taken to protect the shelter, its volunteers and its animals.

We also think that a meeting should be arranged with adjacent land-owners to inform them of the importance of the shelters work. Farmers must be made aware of the fact that the whole areas tourist input is seriously undermined by continual harassment of the shelter and abuse of stray animals. Lack of municipality and police action to halt this harassment must have played a huge role to encourage a mindless coward to commit this horrendous attack against defenseless dogs in this shelters care.

Your urgent action is extremely important, many people are awaiting a persona statement from you emphasizing that you will do all in your power to not only rigorously pursue the perpetrator but also offer a solution and action to give meaningful protection to this shelter.

I look forward to your response.

CATCH AND PROSECUTE THE POISONER OF 23 DOGS IN SITIA, CRETE!!!!
3 years ago

All up to date here!  Forwarded Personalised Email with the Sample Letter as a guide to the authorities email addresses stated!!!  So Disgusted by this Cruel and unnecessary killing and waste of precious dog's lives!!  These killers need to be found and punished for their brutal actiions as soon as possible!!!  The letter I sent adapted from the Sample letter is as follows: 

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am contacting you regarding another Terrible Act of Brutality and Animal Cruelty which took place on 10th July 2013 in the town of Sitia on the island of Crete, Greece. 

It has become apparent that 23 innocent, defenceless dogs that were being cared for in a shelter in Sitia run by the Local Welfare Society Volunteers have been BRUTALLY killed by poisoning!

Local Police are understaffed and struggling to cope within the limited resources that they have available to them!   Nevertheless and with All due Respect to them, they are attempting to try and get to the bottom of this Evil Crime by organising post mortem examinations and sending samples to Athens for analysis!    The Police do however, unfortunately admit, that this Cruel, Atrocious Case is ever likely to be given High Priority!   I, THEREFORE, SINCERELY URGE YOU THAT THIS MUST CHANGE!!   What message are you sending out to your people and, the 'Watching World' if you do NOT PRIORITISE this urgent matter - you are giving the message that Animals Do NOT Matter and that your people are FREE to do as they please to them!!!   PLEASE GIVE YOUR PEOPLE THE STRONG MESSAGE THAT THIS 'BRUTALITY AND CRUELTY' WILL NEVER EVER BE TOLERATED!!!   PLEASE SEEK OUT AND FIND THE EVIL PERPETRATORS OF THIS HORRENDOUS, DESPICABLE CRIME AND BRING THEM TO THE JUSTICE THEY SO RIGHTLY DESERVE!!!   I URGE YOU TO PLEASE do NOT let your country be tarnished by the Brutality of these Crimes! 

I and MANY MANY THOUSANDS of others VOICES, URGENTLY call upon the local authorities, both Municipal and Police, to give this issue of Animal Cruelty Greater Attention and Resources  AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! PLEASE Seek out and Pursue the evil persons responsible for this ATROCITY and then, make the relevant Arrests and Prosecutions bringing them to a Successful Conclusion!!    IT will be then and ONLY then, that this message:-  'Brutality and Cruelty towards Animals will never be tolerated' will be communicated successfully and effectively to your local people!   Thus, acting as a Warning and Deterrent!!!   I can assure you that this investment of your Time and Effort to resolve this case will have it's rewards in the long term!   Not only will your own people then think twice about committing any such crime in the future but the 'Watching World' will have a Deeper, Respectful Attitude for you and your County!!!

I, as do the Rest of the World, know that GRECIANS ARE A NOBLE PEOPLE WITH A PROUD HISTORY AND CULTURE!   PLEASE URGENTLY ACT TO RECOGNISE THAT ANIMAL CRUELTY IS NOT PART OF YOUR IDENTITY!!!

Thank you most sincerely for your kind understanding and cooperation in respect of my aforesaid comments!   I do sincerely hope and pray that you adhere to them!!
Yours faithfully,

MARINA MURPHY
UNITED KINGDOM
I do so hope that the many caring voices of our Care2 Family will be heard to end this cruelty....it's so needless and upsetting!!!!  Thank you Anneke and Desanka for posting xx

23 shelter dogs poisoned in Siteia, Crete

From Anneke


To: arnaoutakis@pkr.gov.gr ; gadpkritis@hellenicpolice.gr
 
SAMPLE LETTER

Subject: Catch and prosecute the poisoner of 23 shelter dogs in Siteia, Crete

Dear Sir,

On the 10th of July 2013 another act of brutality and animal cruelty took place on the island of Crete, Greece. 
23 dogs that were being cared for in a shelter run by the local welfare society volunteers in the town of Siteia were killed by poisoning.

Local police are understaffed and struggling to cope within the limited resources available, but are nevertheless attempting to get to the bottom of the crime by organising postmortem examinations and sending samples to Athens for analysis.  But they admit this matter is unlikely to be given high priority.  THIS MUST CHANGE!

We call upon the local authorities - municipal as well as police - to give the issue of animal cruelty greater attention and resources.
There must be more arrests and successful prosecutions.  Only then will the message be communicated effectively to the local population: 

CRETANS ARE A NOBLE PEOPLE WITH A PROUD HISTORY AND CULTURE. 
WE DO NOT RECOGNISE ANIMAL CRUELTY AS PART OF OUR IDENTITY.

News from Santorini Animal Welfare Association - SAWA

"We had a new arrival today at the SAWA Refuge, her name is Daisy a beautiful 25 year old mule that worked all her life in the bay of Fira, carrying tourists from the cruise ships up the 588 steps leading to the capital of Santorini and down back again... Today is her official retirement day as her owner surrendered her to our Refuge for old and injured equines... Daisy was greeted by the usual welcome commitee of Lupo and Libra and then entered her new "home" a shelter for life that she will share with 20 more equines. We are glad to see that more and more owners are understanding that they should give up their animals that can no longer work offering them the dignity they deserve for all these years of endless service...

Signed. It is high time the EU adopted a consistent approach to animal welfare in its member states. It soon pokes its nose into the econmic situation.

Up to date. Will there ever come a day when dogs are treated with respect by the humans who domesticated them and put them in this position of overpopulation and abandonment in the first place?

Up to now, in order for an animal to be characterized as "dangerous", the behaviour of the animal should have been proven as unprovoked and intense. Now, all it takes will be a successful attack or an unsuccessful attack effort or even a threatening

JUSTICE FOR IONAS

Ionas, a puppy only months old, was severely abused on the island of Samothraki, Greece on 18th February 2013. After he was bitten with a cleaver on the head, he was tied up with a rope and a sack full of stones was attached on him. He was then thrown to sea to drown. He struggled to remain on the surface, and luckily for him he was spotted by a fisherman and rescued. After spending some days on the island he was transferred by another fisherman to our town and was received by the local animal welfare union, Kivotos Alexandroupolis.Ionas was immediately taken to the vet where he received and is still receiving veterinary care. Unfortunately he lost one eye and the other is not certain to be saved. The Animal welfare Union Kivotos Alexandroupolis offers an award of 1000 Euros to any who could give specific information on the perpetrator's identity and whereabouts. Please, I implore you, sign the petition and ask the Mayor of Samothraki to do anything in his power for the dog's abuser to be found and be brought to justice.

Send emails of protest as well in this email: dim@samothraki.gr
