Nicosia animal police were investigating on Tuesday after two dogs were found dead with a metal wire wrapped around their necks in Lythrodontas.

The owner of the dogs had been looking for them since they went missing on December 3, the head of animal police Vyronas Vyronos told the Cyprus Mail.

He found them together with his underage son around 5pm on Monday lying dead in a plot near his holiday home tied with a metal wire around their neck.

“We will proceed with a necropsy to see how they died,” Vyronos said.

It was not immediately clear under which conditions the dogs were kept at the holiday home.

In a written statement, the Green party condemned the new animal abuse case and demanded punishment for the culprits.

Animal police are also investigating after a video showing two people forcing two dogs to fight emerged on social media over the weekend. Two suspects, 25 and 28, have been arrested for the case.
