Environmentalists on Cyprus are urging the government to immediately ban the sale of pesticides, which they say were used to kill some 40,000 animals last year.

they do this nearly everywhere in europe, except netherlands, sweden, norway ( as far as i know) germany and a few others, but they slaughter,gas, poison ferral cats and dogs in spain, greece, romania, italy, france, more or less all around the meditarainian, the black sea, to keep their beaches clean for the tourists!!! my vet works with rescue groups who rescues animals from, spain, greece, romania, turkey, and other countries. they bring them here to germany to find them loving and caring homes!!!

IT DOES NOT MAKE IT RIGHT, NO MATTER WHICH COUNTRY IT HAPPENS IN, THIS IS A HUGE DISGRACE TO EVERY NATION WHERE THEY TURN A BLIND EYE TO IT. I LIVE IN GREECE AND THIS HAPPENS ALL THE f$$^% TIME, AND I AM HEART SICK OF IT, THEY BUY THE POISON FROM THE PHARMACY, AND YOU HAVE TO BUY THE ANTI-DOTE FROM THE SAME PLACE THAT SELLS THE POISON!!!!!
IF THEY DO NOT HAVE POISON, THEY USE CRUSHED GLASS IN MEATBALLS, CAN YOU IMAGING HOW MUCH SUFFERING THAT CAUSES???
THE SO-CALLED 'HUMANS' NEED TO WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE, IT STINKS!!!!

the people in them countries think there just stuipd animals there not like us who love animals. I go to cyprus every yr just to see the cat and feed them . I went in to buy cat food and I was given the guy money he treated me like he was going to catch something of me just because i was buying food for the cats. I told them u don't know what u come back as, that could be one of ur realtions. I do feel sad when i have to leave. I wish I could do more. Known these animals r going to die. Cyprus don't care about these animals, They have no rites in the law of cyprus. They don't want this law to be infored. It break my heart.
