PROTEST RALLY & RIDE
AGAINST THE POISONING OF DOMESTICATED AND WILD ANIMALS
A bicycle ride to Fiki, Trikala, will be organized on Sunday, October 4th, World Animal Day, by the «Podilates Trikalon (Cyclists of Trikala)» together with the Trikala Animal Awareness Society – «Artemis», to protest against the continuous scattering of poisoned bait which has caused the cruel death of many animals.
In the village in question, for several years now, a systematic killing of animals by poisoning has been taking place, while in the last year, the members of the animal welfare group «ARTEMIS» have repeatedly received calls concerning poisoned baits (from which very few animals have survived) as well as the mass extermination of animals (about 30 poisoned dogs and cats have been found) and have contacted the authorities and started taken legal action so the people behind all of this will be punished.
According to law 4235/14, in conjunction with law 4039/12, article 16, concerning animal abuse, those who violate paragraphs a and b shall be punished with a 30,000€ administrative fine, as well as at least one year of imprisonment and a 5,000-15,000€ fine.
The meeting for the protest ride is at 12:00 pm at the central Trikala square, where an event will be held at 10:00 am. If you wish, you can also be at the central Fiki square at 13:00 where a protest will also be held.
