Greece (Ioannina): Please Write to the Mayor Regarding Dog Poisonings

grec0001

On Saturday 31 January, a friend in Ioannina (northern Greece) sent me the following email …. another shocking report of poisoning, one of many received in the past couple of weeks. At the end of the report is the mayor’s name, address etc …. PLEASE write to him, expressing your disgust, but please keep your letter as polite as you can (yes, I know, not easy….).

=============================================

 

“…On Wednesday evening, 28 January ‘09, 5 dogs were found poisoned in the central square of Ioannina. All dogs were alive when found, but only one was saved. It was no coincidence that Wednesday night was chosen – a day when the shops are closed and the town is relatively empty and the 28th was the first fine day in a month of so much rain that the attempts of even the most persistent poisoner would have been thwarted.

The Deputy Mayor didn’t waste time in publicly condemning the poisoning as a random act by an insensitive, callous citizen. Perhaps, but the following day revealed 11 more dogs poisoned at another park in the city and all over the city those who feed stray animals are reporting missing dogs. One can’t help but remember election time 2004. Two days before the leader of a major Greek political party was to address a public meeting in the central square it was the same scenario. The same local authority, the same Mayor, the same easy solution – 13 dogs poisoned in the central square of Ioannina.

There is always a reaction by a small group of citizens when animals are deliberately poisoned, but this time the reaction in Ioannina has been intense. The poisoning was covered by two local television channels, who didn’t hesitate to show dogs convulsing as they slowly died an agonising death. Two local newspapers covered the incident and printed letters in which citizens expressed their disgust. Students reacted quickly by calling a meeting to prepare posters and leaflets condemning the incident. Another open meeting will be held on Thursday 5 February at 7.30pm (Workers’ Centre, Yiosef Eligia St).

For those of us who witness poisoning all too often, it is a relief to have this support and in many cases from people who are not necessarily animal lovers, but who condemn poisoning for the violent, barbaric crime it is. However, we also know that somewhere in the Town Hall, ‘they’ are smiling to themselves, because despite all our reactions, they have achieved what they wanted to achieve.

For those of you who also want to express your disgust that these crimes continue to occur on a daily basis in Greece, please write to the Mayor of Ioannina. The culprits, public or private, are never prosecuted for poisoning, as is the case with those who abandon their animals to this fate with a clear conscience and the surety that they will never be investigated or apprehended. In similar fashion, the local authorities responsible for animal welfare in Greece ignore their responsibilities, relying on the generosity of other Europeans and unpaid volunteers to undertake the care of Greece’s hundreds and thousands of stray animals…..”

To

Nikolaos Gontas
Mayor of Ioannina
Town Hall
Plateai A. Papandreou 5
Ioannina 45221
Greece

 

Sir,

 

I cannot but condemn in the strongest possible terms the cowardly and cruel poisoning of these unfortunate animals in your municipality of Ioannina.

 

Video:  http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=LT65qP-61kg

 

This action is below contempt – especially as your Deputy Mayor was quick to condemn something he very likely knew of, maybe even had a hand in – and – as I understand this was not the first time such an incident took place on Ioannina:

Election time 2004 – Two days before the leader of a major Greek political party was to address a public meeting in the central square it was the same scenario. The same local authority, the same Mayor, the same easy solution – 13 dogs poisoned in the central square of Ioannina.

 

With this history in mind there really is NO NEED denying the responsibility of your office for these killings – which were intentional, planned and NOT “random acts by insensitive, callous citizens”, as seems to be the official position of your administration.

 

NO !!

 

Do not, I beg you, think that current outrage at this will pass and go away, soon to be forgotten.

 

You could not be more mistaken, Sir.

 

Greece once more has shown her true face – which is NOT one of an ancient culture and civilization, but the ugly and grotesque face of a mass killer of Innocents – every day, all over Greece !!

 

I have been told to write this letter in a polite manner, but having seen the video images of convulsing and dying animals in front of your very office I am indeed VERY hard pressed to do so.

 

I am beyond sick and tired of witnessing acts like these, and MY conscience at least does react to them in a way that is normal for someone who feels compassion for others – when you and certain of your countrymen clearly do not !
