Larissa: Mammoth fine €270,000 for puppies slaughterer

The mammoth fine of 270,000 euro was imposed to a man in Larissa who had slaughtered nine new-born puppies with a backhoe and buried them in a plastic bag under stones. Going strictly by the Greek Animal Abuse book, police fined the murderer of defenceless souls with the maximum fine of €30,000 for each puppy, even though one of the puppies survived.

The unprecedented for Greece fine was imposed by the Municipality Police and confirmed by the deputy mayor of Larissa in Central Greece.TsapaKoutaviaZontano
