That’s the sear animal abuse and not only! The owner of a dog let him die chained into a rusty barrel and he didn’t even bother to remove the cadaver of the unlucky soul. It is not known how the unfortunate creature died. Whether from starvation or sickness. The Animal Welfare Association of Rethymno in Crete says that the barrel dog was found in a very neat olive field and that the onwer “saw the dog dying and did nothing, let the dog die helpless.” The dog has been laying there several months.
“It was the “guardian” for his flock, or “guardian” of the field? The dog got sick and did not take drugs because nobody cared? Drowned in the chain? What does it matter. What matters is that even a dog dies helpless because no law in this country protects the animals from their owners,” the AWA says in a statement. (adespoto.gr)
PS I never understood and never will the purpose to keep in chain a barrel dog. My heart broke last summer on the island of Mytilene to see all these barrel dogs, kept in short chains, with a bowl of dirty water and no food. What’s the use of keeping a barrel dog, idiots?
