"Punk" Dogs Set Off a Riot on the Vaporetto....
VENICE: TRAMP BRINGS 10 DOGS IN STEAMBOAT, SPARKS OFF RIOT
(AGI) - Venice, Italy, Aug 29 - Punk tramps bring their dogs around cities almost always without a leash, and yesterday a group of them started a riot in a steamboat on the Grand Canal in Venice. Seven punks, accompanied by about 10 dogs, attempted to mount on the 82. It was 2am and the gang was prevented from entering the vessel by local transport seamen. A riot started which involved three of the punks, all in their 20s, the transport personnel and also two passengers who were trying to help the seamen. The passengers especially were beaten up and later taken to a casualty ward, where they will be treated for 7 and 15 days. The 3 punks were charged for interruption of a public services and damages, as they had also broken the steamboat's furniture. (AGI) COPYRIGHTS 2002-2005 AGI S.p.A. - [P.S.
