Man kills dog.
A man in Serres, northern Greece, will stand trial for killing his neighbor’s dog with a spade. According to the dog’s owner, the 66year-old man repeatedly hit the animal when he saw it on his property. The accused said he killed the dog because it had targeted his sheep. Local reports said his property was not fenced or otherwise demarcated, making it easy for the dog to enter. He appeared before a prosecutor yesterday and was freed pending his trial on July 21.
