"Loukanikos" internationally known as the "Riot Dog" passed away today in Athens at the age of 10. His health was adversely affected by police asphyxiating gas and from being kicked from police, forcing him to “retire” from active protest about two years ago.
“He was on the couch sleeping, when suddenly his heart stopped beating”.
Farewell our comrade
Oh no! Genuinely upset by the death of a dog I’ve never met
best dug ever
Before anyone says the owner was horrible for letting the dog get hurt at protests, it was a literal street dog that just started showing up one day to protests. Eventually protesters started feeding him and one of them adopted him and took him in away from the protests for his health.
RIP little buddy
This made me extremely upset and emotional , all I can think about is how genuinely terrifying and evil our world is becoming (hence the violent protests with a militarized police force) and the fact that even a street dog can sense the negativity and try to fight against it….unreal
