Everyone remembers the show staged of Ruby, Sakis and Stratos beginning of the month. Together with photographers and cameramen, the three Athens strays had lurked the Troika representatives outside the Greek finance ministry and started an anti-austerity barking when they arrived.
Next day, reports in the Greek press claimed that at least one of the Troikans – EU representative Matthias Morse – had complained to finance minister Yiannis Stournaras about the strays and asked measures.

Obeying the Troika’s demands the Athens Municipality arrested at least one of the dogs. The arrest followed a complaint that Ruby allegedly had bitten a citizen.
the citizen has reportedly claimed that he was bitten by the dog while he was peacefully sitting at a cafeteria at Syntagma Square.
Municipality workers located Ruby who is usually hanging around in the area and took him to a municipality shelter in Megar, some 50 km away from Athens.
