The owner tied the horse under the hot sun, without access to water and food, and left it to die a painful death. It happened in the village of Sidari on the island of Corfu.
Tourists from a nearby hotel tried to save the animal, give it water and shelter from the sun, but in vain. A little water, a little shade: drops of comfort for a dying horse.
They called the police, but when the officers arrived, they said there was nothing they could do. The horse died a terrible death, although in the last minutes on this cruel planet it was surrounded by caring people.

Description of the story, photos and videos have been made public Patrycja Podhorodecka on facebook.
Animal cruelty comes just a week after how the deputy mayor of the municipality of Zitsa dragged a donkey behind his pickup truck for almost a kilometer. Animal badly injured by being dragged along the asphalt the owner abandoned on his farm. Only because the footage of animal cruelty attracted the attention and outrage of the whole country, the local society for the protection of animals hastened to find the injured animal and tried to help him.
Unfortunately, the injuries were too severe, and after three days the donkey had to be euthanized.
Ippothesis, the pan-Greek horse protection association, reported a case in Corfu that “unregistered horses” meant “owner unknown” and could not be prosecuted.
Άρα & αυτός ο ιδιοκτήτης που ευθύνεται για τον θάνατο του ζώου, δεν έχει συνέπειες. Όπως και στο γαϊδουράκι. Γιατί είπε η ΕΛΑΣ ότι δεν μπορεί να κάνει τπτ; Είναι τόσο ανίσχυρος ο νέος φιλοζωικός νόμος; Είναι η δομή των τοπικών κοινωνιών έτσι που η αστυνομία κάνει τα στραβά μάτια; https://t.co/e0npUyzj2a

As we reported earlier, in Greece there is still no register or record of either horses or donkeys. Societies for the protection of animals insist on their registration, but the government has not done anything yet. Unlike dogs, which were rewritten a few years ago, at least in the cities.
