Lock up your chickens and rabbits ... changing Greece

If you live near Kozani in northern Greece, this is a very sound piece of advice. There is a refreshing movement in Greece concerned with animal rights - something unheard of 10 years ago when wild stray dogs prowled the city streets and on highwards were regarded as targeted road kill. Yesterday an animal protection group released some 6000 minks from a mink farm near Kozani which traditionally is a fur producing town. And our little furry friends are wrecking havoc upon the local population attacking chickens and rabbits and even children. They seem to be thoroughly enjoying their new found freedom and their chances of adorning some lady this winter are decreasing by the minute. Anyone with experience in catching escaped minks should apply to the Lord Mayor of Kozani - I think there may be a rare employment opportunity in the town!
