Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A 37-year-old man yes­ter­day was handed a one-year sus­pended sen­tence for al­legedly beat­ing two dogs to death and burn­ing them, in Serres, north­east­ern Greece. He was also or­dered to pay a 5,000 euro fine. The de­fen­dant, a mu­nic­i­pal em­ployee work­ing at the city pound on a short-term con­tract, al­legedly vis­ited the fa­cil­ity to feed the dogs on Satur­day, where, he claimed in court, the dogs at­tacked him. Col­leagues dis­cov­ered the dogs’ charred re­mains and alerted au­thor­i­ties who ar­rested the 37-year-old. He was also fined 60,000 eu­ros by the mu­nic­i­pal­ity.
