Greece’s parliament unanimously approved legislation that will sentence animal abusers from one to ten years in prison depending on the crime’s nature. They will also be fined between €5,000 and €15,000. The nation’s Rural Development and Food Minister, His Excellency Makis Voridis, stated that the law is “a strong message sent by parliament to society… Society can no longer accept such acts.” He also met with animal rights activist Panagiotis Milas, who has been helping to create a section within a local police department to handle animal cruelty. Our appreciation, Greek parliament, Your Excellency Makis Voridis and Panagiotis Milas, for being strong voices for the kind animals and helping better ensure their safety in the future. We pray that all governments and people protect our dear animal co-inhabitants, as we cherish their loving companionship, in Divine wisdom.
