The 7 Most Incredible Crime Sprees Carried Out by Animals: #1. Kanellos, the Legendary Riot Dog
Photographers who had been taking shots of the riots in Greece were surprised to notice that one individual could be spotted in all of them. In fact, he has shown up at every protest in the capital for the last two years and many before that. Since the country is on the brink of bankruptcy, that's a lot of protests -- meaning the rioter is either really committed to the cause or really, really bored.
The reason for the photographers' surprise: The rioter was a dog.
His name is Kanellos, and he can be seen dodging cans of tear gas:
Remaining smug when being blasted by a water cannon:
Encouraging protesters to attack the police:
And patrolling the gates of Hades:
Some claim the original Kanellos died two years ago at around age 17, and the one showing up since then is his successor, Thodorius ... which would be even more awesome, because it would mean Kanellos' example is inspiring other dogs to rise up against man's oppression. By the way, he also inspired someone to record an anthem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FTaVgqSiIk&feature=player_embedded
We can't tell you Kanellos organized all those protests too, mainly because we're afraid to get on his bad side.
