Name: M. S.
The petitioner denounces the allegedly cruel treatment of hunting dogs in Cyprus, estimated at 125.000, most of which are kept in cages located in home courtyards, close to dwellings, further afield in the fields and in the mountain area and which can be heard constantly barking, at times continuously for up to 5 hours. She claims that animal protection authorities will not act as long as the dogs get water and food.
