15,000 stray dogs to be killed in Athens to help the city to be more asthectically pleasing for the visit fans of the Olypmics....wonderful what the Olympics bring to a country - inhumane acts of violence so that visiting "civilized" people are happy.

Sammiec,it happened somewhere else,but I forgot where....for the same reason.
Also it does not surprise me the Greeks are using poison,the most inhumane way to kill anything and everything.
I can just picture kids playing around dead or dying dogs and other animals beeing affected.
Personally I think this Olympics have become a farce,the greeks are cleaning the streets of any undesirables including humans,not to say the greeks are alone in this,it happens in most countries before a big international even.
At the same time,it's not more cruel than Ontarios resent record of slaughtering 9.700 raccoons and foxes plus shooting 3.000 Cormorants.
More and more I am losing my faith in humans,maybe I'll buy an island and take all unwanted and tortured animals with me :D
