Petition: 

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/is-it-going-to-be-a-mass-killing-of-stray-dogs-an

Target: Romanian Parlament

Sponsored by: Evelina

Last week a law was proposed by the prefect of Bucharest Mihai Cristian Atanasoaei to kill all stray dogs and those who stay longer than seven days in public shelters without being adopted. By this law they also want to prohibit feeding abandoned animals on public domain and to make more strict rules for adopting an animal. So in our dear country (who is claiming to be an european contry) 90% from the stray dogs live between people in the residential districts so…. there are people who loves dogs and give them food . I know dogs in my neighborhood  so old…they had spent their all life infront of some block of flats and they hadn’t bitten anyone…..and they don’t let us to give them food anymore?
They are complainig that many people have been bitten…a dog never bites without reason…..and our children can’t play in park because nobody cleans after all this dogs……i really don’t want to ask them how they spent the money from the taxes that i’ve been paying them for a long time!!!!….this is politics…

The idea is that we could use some help…because they had already killed thousands of stray dogs a few years ago…and this will happen in the future too if nobody does something.
I am just a person who loves dogs i don’t have the power to stop them but i am thinking that maybe sameone who can will read this or will see news at tv and that person will do something.
The dogs don’t have any fault…make the one who has pay for that.

For almost a month now, there has been a harsh campaign against stray dogs by the media. Since some members of the Bucharest ASL issued statements advocating the reinstatement of the law that permitted the killing of strays, the newspapers and the TV have been incessantly showing images of packs of strays and those people bitten throughout the country. In reality, the law has formally prohibited the killing of strays since 2007, but the municipalities have skirted the problem by leaving the dogs, in thousands of public facilities spread throughout the country, to simply die of hunger and disease. The law has only prevented large scale killings, such as

those seen before 2007, when strays were killed en masse even in the streets, thanks to the absence of an animal protection law. Since no

sterilization plan has been made, the number of dogs has increased exponentially in the meantime and now the public is asking that drastic measures be taken.

The climate of recent weeks brings us back to 2001 when the then mayor of Bucharest, Basescu, launched the campaign that led to the extermination of at least 100,000 stray dogs in the capital alone. STD is extremely worried and fears that the municipalities where it operates will exploit the atmosphere of hysteria and intolerance crafted by the media to undermine our sterilization programs.

** SAMPLE Letter to copy and send **:

Europe says NO to the Killing or Incarceration of Stray Dogs in Romania!

Dear Madam or Sir,

with big dismay all members of the European Union follow the present discussion concerning the plan to take up the killing of stray dogs again or to intern them into huge camps.

During an interview on February 3rd 2010 Mr. Mihai Atanasoaei, prefect of Bucharest, proposed to lift the ban on killing stray dogs again.

As a reason he stated that the mayor and the residents felt equally annoyed by the strays. After massive protests on the internet, on 8th February he declared his intention to comply with the law and to refrain from killing the dogs. Instead he proposed to put them into shelters because ‘… the European legislation prohibits euthanasia except for animals with incurable diseases.’

It is impossible to keep tens of thousands of dogs like that – the shelters are extermination camps of terror!

Since the 15th of January 2008 the killing of stray dogs is prohibited by law! This long overdue ban, which was welcomed throughout Europe, has not at all done damage to the reputation of the Romanian government – quite the reverse: The willingness of this young member of the EU to take responsibility, its humanity and far-sightedness, was internationally acknowledged.
And now this step back towards barbarism?

Will Romania become a country again, in which dogs are hunted, caught, tortured and slaughtered?

Scientific studies submitted in Brussels have long ago produced proof that neutering is the only lasting solution in reducing the population of strays. For years numerous international animal welfare organizations have assisted you, funding and performing neutering campaigns on stray dogs. The majority of the population supports these actions and has made clear how important they consider the wellbeing of stray dogs.

We demand that you refrain from the planned mass killing of stray dogs as well as the animal camps under discussion!

Moreover, we ask you to take up dialogue with animal welfare organizations in order to perform appropriate neutering projects which have proven successful in other countries. These projects may receive funding by the Animal Health Strategy in Brussels.

We want to point out that legalizing the slaughter of stray dogs would meet with indignation and detestation throughout Europe!

The citizens of the European Union would draw their own conclusions if you should really put this idea into action.

Let us make together a modern and animal friendly Europe!

With kind regards,

  1. This is just horrible, those poor animals have no hope with cruel heartless humans. The Government needs to take action to help these abandoned animals THIS IS AN URGENT SITUATION look how many dogs have been killed, neglected, abused and lost their lives. It’s just a tragedy I am struggling to understand such cruelty.

  2. My god, what a cruel way to treat animals that could be the one dog that would save your life, and you don’t even give them a chance to live! How can your country ever hope to be included in the civilized world when you treat god’s most innocent creatures as if they have no right to live on earth?

  3. monsters!

  4. I absolutely cannot believe what I am seeing. How can this be going on? It is past brutal that anyone could do such things.
    I take comfort in a bit of Scripture that states God will judge the killing of any animal if not for food. So be it.
    God bless you.

  5. It’s a SHAME !!!
    We Humans are Bestien !
    Animals are the better humans !

    • absolut kaltblütig, für sowas finde ich auch keine worte. es ist einfach die ignoranz, gleichgültigkeit u. bequemlichkeit, selbstsüchtigkeit vieler. wär ich auch bettelarm, auf sowas würd ich nie kommen, ich verstehe es einfach nicht.
      wenn jemand tiere wie abfall behandelt, wird er menschen auch nicht anders behandeln.
      profitgier: oft zahlen die behörden gebühren für das vernichten von tieren, es ist einfach unglaublich!

We want see EU Parliament action – this is also question of human rights , because this is daily mentaly aggression to people who respect animals .

    • Totally agree with you. We are very very curious and eager to hear UE opinion about the atrocities happening in our country. They did receive all the proves.

  25. quel honte!!!et on nous demande d etre humains!!!! QUAND EST CE QUE CA CHANGERA!!!!!!

  26. Dass man diese armen Geschöpfe so misshandeln kann ist barbarisch und einem normal denkenden Menschen unwürdig. Habe hierfür absolut kein Verständnis.

  27. Remember and Learn From History…Nazi Germany, and I am comparing Romania to Nazi Germany, murdered millions of innocent citizens during WWII in concentration camps set up exactly as the ones in Romania.

    Remember and Learn From History….Nazi Germany was decimated by the Allies during WWII. THIS CAN AND WILL HAPPEN TO ROMANIA!

  28. STOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP…….

  29. Damn Romania and its total lack of compassion for its strays!!! Killing your strays is not the answer.!!! Spey/neuter and re-home to genuine caring families is the only way the situation will improve. You should be providing caring Animal shelters as we do in the UK, and publisice adoption for them!!! No animal deserves this disgusting treatment!!
    What you are doing is no better than the Nazis extermination of the Jews……start living in the 20thc, and stop this outrage NOW…I BEG YOU PLEEEEASE!!!!

  30. There is no way I could watch the video, the pics say enough. I cannot believe that in this day and age, this sort of thing still happens. Bali, China, Mexico,Russia and Romania, to name just a few, need to come into the 21st century and get their acts together when it comes to animal cruelty and abuse. The governments of these countries seem to be the worst animal abuse offenders of all. There is no excuse for this and these atrocities need to stop.

  31. I cant believe this cruelty to this poor animals. I think it is disgusting that the countries solve their problems this way. If people would CARE for their animals in the first place THIS would never have happened. People need to learn to NEUTER their animals. It does not cost much and it is the best thing for a animal. SHAME on the countries that solves their problems on this barbaric way =(

  32. !!!! OH , DIOS !!!!!! LA CRUELDAD DEL SER HUMANO NO TIENE LIMITES

  33. Of you at least try to see one street dog direct in his eyes , only then your start to understant how he feels and how he loves you only because you just spent some minutes of your time paying your attention to him.
    Dont worry, never a dog bit you if you dont try to make him feel afraid .
    What would you do if some body try to beat you or your child?
    Wouldn’t you feel bad and try to defend your child?
    Dogs are also Human like people and dogs
    also have soul better than many people .
    If you , care , don’t beat and respect dogs , means that respect yourself.
