The University of Ioannina in Greece has been poisoning animals, with a total of 25 animals in 20 days. The Dean of the university has freely admitted that he believes members of the university community are responsible for the poisoning but refuses to notify the police.

Please take a moment to sign and send the letter below, provided by Greek Animal Rescue, to the incoming and outgoing Deans to tell them that these crimes MUST be reported and investigated!

Letter to
Outgoing Dean of the University of Ioannina, Mr Ioannis Gerothanassis
Incoming Dean, Mr Triantafyllos Albanis
I would like to express my anger and disgust at the repeated poisoning of animals that has taken place over the last 20 days in grounds of what is supposed to be an academic institution. The poisonings occurred on 7 and 29 June, respectively, and in total 25 animals have been killed, including two privately owned animals.

The poisonings occurred at the same time in various areas of the University, suggesting that they were undertaken by individuals with an excellent knowledge of the University surroundings.

I ask that you take immediate measures to stop this inhumane treatment of animals by members of your University, that the police be called, as required by law in such cases and that a full investigation of the members of the University community is undertaken. It is unacceptable for these things to occur anywhere, let alone in a well known University whose main aim should be the dissemination of knowledge rather then than the annihilation of living creatures using barbaric methods.

Yours sincerely,
