Maniac That Shoots Stray Dogs In The Outskirts Of Athens, Greece Strikes Again

I have said this before, stray dogs in Greece are on death row. Greece is supposedly a no kill country, and there is a live and let live type of tolerance when it comes to stray dogs here, that are millions.

But nothing protects those dogs from all the maniacs out there that can so easily get their hands on them. So the stray dog you cared for, fed, spayed and loved today will possible be shot, hanged, mutilated and deliberately ran over tomorrow.

In Rafina, in the outskirts of Athens, there is a maniac shooting stray dogs for no reason. His latest victim was Mavroula, that was shot dead on September 21st. Why? Oh well, why not.

Mavroula has a sad story behind, that personifies everything that is wrong with Greece and its people. She was a pet dog, and once she got pregnant, her owner dumped her and her four newborn puppies. (don’t be surprised, this is too common here).

The local charity made a shelter for her on the street, so that she could raise her babies. The puppies were adopted and she was spayed and returned to the streets, to her neighborhood, to the place she called home.

Why was she left on the streets? Because this is what we do here, we simply have no option. The shelters are packed, the strays are too many, and we can only rescue the lucky few. many rescuers keep pack of stray dogs o the streets, that they feed and care for, because this is all they can do.

And yes, every time the go off to feed them, they do it with their hearts in their stomachs, because they might come across something like this. They know that their strays are not safe where they are, the plead for adoptions and they try their best.

More dogs will have Mavroula’s fate. There are strays suffering horrible deaths right now, as I am writing these words. And as you are reading there are people looking for purebred puppies for sale on Craig’s list or pet stores, instead of adopting the strays that crave for some love in their own fuc$%^$ neighborhoods. Whatever.
