Stray Dogs Beaten with Sledgehammer in Greece

A man in Greece attempted to kill three stray dogs by repeatedly beating them with a sledgehammer. On December 23 2011 in Moschato, near Athens, the man lured the dogs with food inside a fenced yard and, wielding a sledgehammer, proceeded to smash two of the dogs on the head. The third dog managed to escape before the door was shut. The remaining two were victims of his unspeakable brutality. Their screams brought people to their windows and doors. The man’s reply to the numerous shouts from witnesses begging him to stop was that he would do the same to them if they intervened. One brave woman called the police. Upon their arrival, the man had thrown one of the dogs, Rigas, in a garbage bag and was on his way to finish off the remaining dog, Duke. The man was apprehended and the dogs were quickly transferred to a doctor. Rigas, the most severely injured of the two, passed away on the 30th of December. A CT scan showed that a piece of his skull bone had lodged itself in the brain. Duke is, as of 1st of January, reportedly out of danger. He is still in shock and afraid of people.
