EXPERTS fear up to 15,000 stray dogs will be poisoned before next month's Athens Olympics so the city looks "pristine".
Authorities in the Greek capital fear the sight of packs roaming the streets will damage the country's bid to show it is modern and civilised, the RSPCA said yesterday.
Greek animal welfare groups say slaughter of the city's estimated 15,000 strays has started. Eighty dogs have been found dead in Saronida, a coastal resort where members of the British team are expected to stay.
One animal welfare activist said: "There's been a big increase in poisonings and we expect it to rise sharply."
You got that? Greece will be stray-dog free before the Olympics, even if they have to kill every last one of them!
Nevermind about the blackouts
of security, half-built venues
and such. Gotta keep those stray dogs away.
And don't forget to round up the humans
