Further to our first meeting with the Hunters Association on February 14th 2016 (see Nefeli's Winter Experience), PAWS was again invited to discuss animal welfare issues with the Hunters on March 7th. The adjacent photo shows PAWS head vet Russell Lyon and Kostas Petrou, chairman of the Paxos Hunting Association outside the Hunting Association office in Gaios. Russell Lyon is handing over a brand new microchip scanner to be used by the Hunters' Association Game Keeper during the next official hunting season on Paxos in October 2016. PAWS, Paxos Hunting Association and the Municipality Authorities are working together to ensure animal protection on Paxos. This will include promoting microchipping of all pets, vaccinations and neutering plus creating specific strategies for dealing with stray animals on Paxos.
