Please watch your cat colonies and cats in this area, we have an animal abuser using a blunt object beating cats to death with blows to the head.
Last night two adults and a kitten from a much loved colony were beaten to death last night, the rest of the bin cats are clearly distressed and afraid. Another was missing and has just been taken to the vet, having been beaten lower down on its body (20/10/16) seen by vet and found to have been in a catfight, not beaten).
The Mayors office & the police are now involved, the dedicated carer has for many years watched over and cared for these village cats & she is willing to give them a formal statement.
This was a brutal calculated attack on defenceless beings, whoever it is should be treated with caution.
Please circulate this information locally despite little chance of prosecution the culprit must know we are not intimated and the Dimos will prosecute.

Crete, closely followed by Attica where Athens belongs, comes top in the number of reported cases of animal abuse in Greece for 2013 and the first half of 2014. According to data from the Greek Police and Tourism directorate given to parliament last week, in 2013 there were 102 incidents of abuse, torture or killing of animals in Crete closely followed by Attica with 99 reported cases out of a total of 530 cases nationally. In the first half of 2014 there were a total of 495 cases of reported animal abuse torture or killing of animals in Greece and the figures are expected to exceed the high of the previous year. Crete had the second highest number of cases, 79, while in Attica there were 107 cases of animal abuse reported to the police.
Happened between 4pm Saturday afternoon, when I left the house and 6.30pm when my daughter got in. One was in the last throws when she arrived. Think the poison was thrown in the garden as two cats got it too and they were all within a few yards of the front door. Small friendly dogs. Foaming at mouth (and other end) 3 puppies now without a mother. Police came up and we made an official report.
Our Greek Vets, Arche Noah & all our volunteers and donators who have assisted in helping the above animals are and will be appalled at such brutal & callous behaviour.
Two stray dogs were found dead in Agioi Apostoloi in Chania on Wednesday, victims of poisoned bait. Two more poisoned animals survived after last minute treatment was administered by animal welfare rescuers. Residents in Agioi Apostoloi are horrified by the poisoning. The dogs were well liked and shop keepers and residents have been looking after them for some time. Mrs Bobolaki president of Chania Animal Welfare Association said “Dozens of tourists were in the area and were appalled by the site of the dead and dying dogs. This sort of thing damages the reputation of our island as a tourist destination”.
The police is investigating the incident and will prosecute the perpetrators if they ever find them. Incidents of reported animal poisonings are on the increase in Crete with stray animal poisoning reported every week.
