Dog Shot In The Head Loses The Battle After A Week Of Fighting

It all started last Monday, September 25, in a village of the island of Kefalonia. Someone called a member of the local charity, informing him that two dogs had been shot – don’t ask why, there never is a reason actually.

One of them did not make it, but the second one survived the shooting. Injured and terrified, she ran away, and when the volunteers arrived at the scene, she was nowhere to be found.

They kept looking for her for five days, and on Friday she was finally rescued. The smell led them to her. The smell of her rotting flesh, as she was being eaten alive by worms.

She was taken to the clinic, her wound was cleaned up and she went through a difficult and long operation. The volunteers named her Milagros – a miracle, because she managed to survive against all odds, because she was a fighter.

The organization pressed charges against the unknown murderer and asked anyone who knows anything to come forward – hahaha! – I’m sorry but coming forward simply ever happens. It’s the “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” type of mentality.

Milagros survived the operation, and every day she made it though alive, it seemed like a small miracle. “We’ve never met such a patient and kind hearted dog” the volunteers said.

Everyone wanted Milagros to pull through. Everyone. But today she lost the battle. After “celebrating” World Animal Day, she left us this afternoon, on October 5. Maybe she was too good for this world. Maybe all of them are.

Every single dog rescued from the streets of Greece, is literally rescue form death row, and this is a fact. Our shelters here are pro life, but the streets aren’t – they never will be – and the kind, friendly strays you meet, feed and pet while on vacation here, are bound to have Milagros’ fate. It’s just the way it is.

  1. It is absolutely appalling that this sort of wicked deed is still being carried out in 2017.My heart is bleeding for the suffering that poor dear dog went through.The pain it must have also caused the rescuers can hardly be imagined.Every day I read a new post about it ,it still makes me feel sick to my gut to imagine the horrors that poor innocent dog went through.Tourists who love Greece are sickened as to this atrocity and the attitude of some Greeks,albeit a small minority.It is putting off a lot of people returning and will affect the tourist trade.This vile object of “humanity “needs to be caught and named ,shamed and imprisoned.Please do something before any innocent creature is made to suffer in the same way.
