We liberated 12 dogs over the weekend from horrific situations We send
some photos of the happy dogs now, but there is a problem..
after 2 days discovered the starving, sick dogs were missing He only went to
feed the dogs once a while as you see with the conditions. He reported to
the police and a villager remembered seeing the truck.
Now one of our
activists has been arrested, released on bail.
We need to highlight
that she had to liberate because the Authorities do nothing the legal way.
There had been 2 reports to the Authorities previously on this man, and
nothing was done.
I submit an email and message to the Animal Party
who refused to come out at the weekend..too late for the animals as were
days away from death in squalid conditions. I would like you to post them up
because he has condemned our actions and lied to the media.
The owner is now trying to blackmail the activist with the village police
backing him up that if he drops charges, he cannot be prosecuted.He
also wants his dogs back, but they are not micro chipped, or registered so
are not legally his.
The dogs are sick with Ehrlichia, riddled with
fleas, were starving and gouged for days to flush out the animal bones, fur
and what looked like raw meat. We have given veterinary care at our own
expense, and they are now putting on weight.
We need to ask other
activists to support our activist in her fight for justice. Like the woman
who gave water to a pig to slaughter in Canada..we need to support those who
care about the animals who were being tortured and abused in these
Thank you so much..let me know if I need to change anything or you
haven't been able to access pages..respects..until all are free
our link will explain more..

LIBERATION Update The owner of the dogs who has stated they were stolen
made a report to the Stroumpi police.
The Police arrested a local
volunteer who had been concerned for the animals welfare in the conditions
mentioned from travelling tourists shocked at the horrors they witnessed.
The Police posted a statement on their website in relation to this case.
The volunteer is released on bail. This is from the Greens relating to their
letter released this morning which we thank them for. The case of the theft
of the dogs in Stroumpi, is creating a lot of questions of the one
directional action of the local powers.
This is because the
volunteer of the pound, was informed by tourists, who found the dead dogs in
the area, and where next to them, lived some other dogs in dire conditions.
In this case there are photos of the situation and uncalled for conditions
of the area. This evidence, will make it very difficult to convince us that
the volunteer's actions can be theft We demand the police to investigate the
whole case and not to remain as the case of the theft of dogs only. We are
very upset that so far the police are not showing any interest in
investigating the dire conditions these dogs were kept and some were dead.
Also noted that the owner does not have the dogs registered with the
municipality or vet services, which are 2 clauses of the law, so how can the
police act on his word and insistence? We feel that the police are refusing
to act with the same conviction and actions to the conditions of the dogs
and that the hunter did not have a breeding license or upkept the law of
keeping hunting dogs We invite the government services (plus some other
dept) to investigate this case and within the law under their power
