Agree with the petition, Wish there was a petition to care for people, I'm more concerned with what is happening to people in Greece because of the economic crisis and measures to end it.

Why do these people even bother to own a dog if that's all they do with it? No compassion or moral ethics are visible in some countires.

Outraged at the incompetence of law enforcement to say the least. If a civilian per say, were to take the law in his own hands i.e. setting the dog free, you'd think it would be justifiable.

Shame on Greece for turning a blind eye on the suffering of these dogs. Maybe with more media attention what was once a popular tourist destination could become very unpopular until these animals are taken care of. I for one will continue sending this story on to everyone I know to get the word out there.

Petition signed. To me animals should be treated like a child. You choose to have them, then take the responsibilities to feed and take care of them. Give the love. If you don't like them, then don't bother getting one and leave the other ones out there alone. Abusing animals and children is pure cruelty. How anyone could do it, I'll never understand. Hope that they get caught and punished to the fullest. Thanks Simone
