Lamia: stray dogs sent an elderly man to the hospital

The 72-year-old man, instead of celebrating Easter with his family, will spend the holiday in the hospital.

The incident took place in Elatia. According to local news site LamiaReport, the elderly man, like every morning, took his pet, a small dog, for a walk. At a distance of about 100 meters from the house, they were attacked by two large dogs.

One of the dogs inflicted very serious bites on a dog that was taken to a veterinary clinic in Amphiklia and it is not certain that it will be rescued. And the man, who was attacked by another angry monster, fell to the ground, hitting his head and breaking his leg. He was rushed to Lamia Hospital, where he underwent emergency surgery.

“I can’t believe that at one point my husband was on the operating table,” the 72-year-old wife of the victim laments, adding: “These stray dogs are dangerous, they need to be isolated immediately. I hope that the police and the municipality will do what they have to do.”

According to neighbors, last year the dogs were simply abandoned by their owner, who left Elatia, after which they starved and began to inspire fear and horror, wandering around the neighborhood in search of food.
