Greek officials and Greek government press officers, worldwide, including the press arm of the 2004 Athens Olympic Organizing Committee are making a last ditch effort to deny allegations of maltreatment of companion animals and the continuing mass poisoning of abandoned dogs especially in light of the upcoming Olympic Games.
Those of us who have lived in Greece and travel there regularly and those animal advocates in Greece who deal with the inhumanity towards both companion and farmed animals on a daily basis should be the gold standard by which the international community judges Greece; not by the Greek governments desperate attempts to conceal reality and the sad truth of the Greek animals tortured existence.
You will, within the next week, be receiving instructions for a mass mailing to Greek officials and the 2004 Athens Olympic Committee, should you wish to express your outrage and intent to avoid Greece as a tourist avenue.
