Report all criminal behaviour towards animals to the police

Μείζονος σειμασίας θέμα, καθιστάται και η αναφορά στην αστυνομική αρχή ότι πρόκειται για αυτεπαγγέλτως διωκώμενο έγκλημα για το οποίο δεν προαπαιτείται η καταβολή του παραβόλου των 100 ευρώ, ως ισχύει για τα κατ' έγκληση διωκόμενα εγκλήματα, άλλα και η τήρηση της αυτοφώρου διαδικασίας, κρίνεται αναγκαία για τον κολασμό του εγκλήματος αυτού που έχει βαρύνουσα εγκληματική απαξία. (Σχετική η υπ. αρ. 71377/12/396322, από 30-32012, εγκύκλιος, του Αρχηγείου της Ελληνικής Αστυνομίας προς τις αστυνομικές αρχές της χώρας).


It is very importance to report all criminal behaviour towards animals to the police. This crime is self prosecuted so you don't have to pay the fee of 100 euro required for all the other crimes. The criminal is imprisoned for one day, because the crime is of major importance. (According to legislation No 71377/12/396322, from 30-32012 circular of the Head Quarters of the Police Station to all the police authorities of this country.)

 

 Poisoning 2013

Coco was one of the animals that once lived in Kamilar. She had a goodmother in Germany, who sent a donation every month for food. She was one of the companions killed this week.

We are now working with the Festos Municipality to create awareness of the harm this practice can cause.

As a result of indiscriminate use of poison in a number of villages a number of deeply loved companions have beeen killed we share their loss.

Good friends kill December
                                        2012

In addition to the pets show above who were killed in Kamilari that there have been about 30 poisonings of cats and dogs in Mires and Galia recently.  One of the dogs that was poisoned was a puppy from a supporters own dog that a friend had.  It seems that the poison was thrown into people's yards in Galia and the animals ate it.  All the dogs and cats in Matala have also been poisoned, shot, etc.  It is claimed that the animals did not have owners, but as the use of poison in Kamilari demonstrated all the animals killed had owners.
