Greek Animal Rights Groups Disapprove of New Animal Law
Representatives of Greek Animal Lover Organizations disapprove of the new law concerning animals and believe there should be a new one. They accuse the veterinary services of the Ministry of Rural Development and Food for misinforming the authorities on purpose, and have invited the prime minister and politicians to act with responsibility towards this important social issue.
Animal lovers warn that the law is disappointing and that problems will continue. There has been a rise of the number of abandoned animals in Greece and as they say, the moral progress of a nation will be judged by the way it treats its animals.
