In March 2018, a small female dog was found dead at a migrant camp covered by a blanket in Skaramagka, in Western Athens.
A Greek animal welfare group, whose staff were taking care of stray dogs near the migrant camp, found the dead canine before filing the report with the Perama police department in Athens, according to Voice of Europe.
When the dog was discovered, her genitals showed clear signs of brutally sustained trauma.
The dog was then transferred to the Stray Animal Care Interdisciplinary Center of Athens to ascertain the cause of death.
Zoosos, a Greek animal welfare site, later reported that the Skaramagka migrant camp head, Giorgos Karoglou, also confirmed the incident.
