Shock! - Billy a stray dog in Protaras thrown into a cardboard crushing machine.

Today, the whole island is in a state of shock at the news of a small stray dog whose presence apparently was bothering the hotel's management and the manager gave orders to the staff to get rid of the dog. The employees chased and caught the dog and promptly threw it into the cardboard crushing machine. Passing tourists terrified and confused heard the despairing cries of the poor little dog and witnessed the horrifying spectacle and managed to remove the dog.
Billy is now in the clinic in critical condition and the vets do not hold out much hope. She has been placed on a drip and had full blood tests which show that she is anaemic. They have not x-rayed her yet to see if any bones are broken because of her critical condition.
The police were at the veterinary clinic today and have taken photographs of Billy to start an investigation.
This horrific treatment of a stray animal has reverberated throughout the island and has left all of us shaking with anger because of the apathy of the relevant authorities to carry out their legal responsibilities. The public has long awaited a proper service for the control of abandoned pets and insists that the government authorities establish a proper animal control unit that will respond to the calls for controlling stray animals and not leaving them prey to sadistic people to deal with their unwanted presence.


Σοκ!  Ζωντανός σκύλος πετάχτηκε σε μηχανή σύνθλιψης χαρτοκιβωτίων στον Πρωταρα.

Άλλη μια απαράδεκτη συμπεριφορά απέναντι σε ζώο, η οποία διασύρει την Κύπρο στο εξωτερικό, καταγγέλλει το Κόμμα για τα Ζώα Κύπρου.
Διευθυντής ξενοδοχείου στον Πρωταρά έδωσε οδηγίες σε δύο υπαλλήλους του ξενοδοχείου να ξεφορτωθούν τη μικρή αδέσποτη σκυλίτσα, ονόματι Μπίλη.
Οι υπάλληλοι καταδίωξαν το σκυλάκι και όταν την συνέλαβαν την έριξαν ζωντανή μέσα στη μηχανή σύνθλιψης χαρτοκιβωτίων. Τουρίστες που ήταν κοντά έγιναν μάρτυρες αυτής της αποκρουστικής και βάρβαρης συμπεριφοράς. Το ζώο κραύγαζε απελπισμένα ενώ οι τουρίστες έντρομοι και συγχυσμένοι κατάφεραν και έβγαλαν από την μηχανή το αθώο πλάσμα.
Η σκυλίτσα βρίσκεται σε ιδιωτική κλινική σε πολύ κρίσιμη κατάσταση και της δίνονται οι πρώτες βοήθειες και είναι άγνωστο εάν τα καταφέρει να ζήσει.
