Angry 15,000 stray dogs to be killed in Athens

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
