According to “Haniotika Nea” newspaper, Kri-kri (Capra aegagrus cretica) of the Municipal Garden of Chania are addicted to sugar and salt, due to the snacks offered by the visitors of the garden.
As a result… kri-kri do not eat their food.
Municipal Authority of Chania placed signs in front of the cages, asking from the visitors not to feed the animals.
“Many people think that kri-kri are like dogs or cats. Kri-kri eat special food, not cheese pies, chocolates, sweets, etc. They are addicted to sugar and salt and they do not eat their food. Animals have fattened, but people continue to feed them”, said Mr. Stelios Stamatoulakis (responsible municipal employee) to the newspaper.
