suspicious, illegal pet warehouse fire,...πάλι τα καταφέραμε!
Honorable Officials, Ladies and Gentlemen,
I was appalled and outraged to read of the suspicious, illegal pet ware-house fire in Vari,that killed over 1500 animals...precious, living, feeling beings...burned alive because of the neglect and apathy of government officials.
The ugly image of Greece and its practice of brutality towards companion and farmed animals is known all around the world and is one which should conjure up shame in the hearts of every compassionate Greek. The state veterinarian Chryssa Dile of the Ministry of Agriculture must be held accountable for the Ministry�s inability and lack of desire to function on behalf of the animals under its jurisdiction.
We urge the press to undertake investigative reporting in order to expose the horrors suffered by animals in Greece and the role played by corrupt and indifferent officials. For the sake of the innocent who suffer and for the reputation of Greece , we beg you to address animal-related issues with unbiased, intelligent and compassionate reporting. Be the voice of these innocent victims who are unable to speak for themselves or control their destinies.
This disheartening incident is yet more proof that the animals in Greece exist in a virtual hell. It's long past time to DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!
