Every summer thousands of acres of forest land is burnt.
Too many animals are burned alive in the fires, mostly small mammals, mammal’s babies, the old and frail animals, chicks of birds and....
many insects. Some animals survive the fire (mainly the big mammals and birds that have full health, some reptiles if they manage to hide in rocky surfaces and insects that have their nests underground.)
Of course if the fire is very big and its speed is great and if the fumes that are produced are very keen, then the mortality rates rises - even and for the large mammals. The animals that will survive will have to face the problem of lack of food and place to live.
But if the fire reaches the so-called "residential areas" the victims will be once again the farmed animals which are condemned to a slow and very painful death, along with dogs held by people of the region that are usually chained, since in most cases no one bothers to free them, to give them a chance to be saved.
Later in the news at the media, people will grumble about their lost fortunes - and not for the gruesome death of so many lives - after all animals to those people are objects of profit and nothing else.
Let’s remember the fires that broke out during the month of August 2007 in Greece, where 60,000 goats and sheep were burned. The number of dogs and cats never recorded. In the news the number of the victims that were mentioned, were the 63 people that were burnt.
