Yes, Bulgaria IS IN THE EU !
This says so much about EU stray animal welfare legislation – or THE LACK OF !!
With MEPs who support this, is it any wonder that things are going nowhere fast ?
Shot mercilessly, all killed, Sofia, Bulgaria. Pups still drinking her milk.
What do you think the punishment for this atrocity would be if the predator is caught?
How much? A few thousand BG Leva?- NO!
900 BG Leva?- NO!
500 BG Leva the most- this would be the price of 5 innocent lives!
That is, IF the predator is caught, but they never catch them because, cruelty to animals is LEGAL in Bulgaria!
This is a letter from the man who took the photo:
“This happened last year in my neighborhood. The dog and her babies were shot together, while she was feeding them! I approached almost every government institution. At that time I didn’t know at all that there is an organization for protection of animals in Bulgaria. Please, do not judge me- every single day I blame myself for not being more assertive. Then I decided to take home the first homeless dog, and I can tell you that it tout me how to love. Now I know that, may be if I had done everything possible to condemn this atrocity, the Mima’s case would have been prevented. Please everybody, do not do as I did. When such things happen we must unite. Only together we can change them. Back then, I was alone. I will never forgive myself.”
This is Bera from Shoumen. She was about 10 y.old. Lived outside a block of apartments. The locals loved her (did they?) One afternoon, 34 y.old, aggressive alcoholic Nikolaii Kamenov killed her- beating her with a metal pole and kicking her in front of mums, their kids and 10 men, who did NOTHING to save her. They feared for their lives! SHAME ON YOU!
BERA’S KILLER! THIS MAN HAS BLOOD ON HIS HANDS!
HIS NAME IS NIKOLAI KAMENOV OF SHOUMEN. HE KILLED MERCILESSLY A GENTLE, STRAY DOG, NAMED BERA (PLS. SEE HER PHOTO ON THE ALBUM).
HE IS ONE DERANGED, AGGRESSIVE ALCOHOLIC. HE HAS NO HEART.
SHAME ON YOU KAMENOV!
This poor dog was tied with a chain to a car and made to run behind it. Naturally, the animal suffered an unimaginable torture and horrendous death. Djebel.
An unidentified man mercilessly cut off a stray dog’s throat. The tragedy happened on Saturday, 9/10/10 in Sofia, before the eyes of a few children. Shame!
This gorgeous, homeless cat suffered unimaginable cruelty and died a horrific, painful dead. A sadist took the poor animal and threw it with a full force on a concrete pathway. The cat struggled from its injuries for about 20 min before it died. Poor, poor thing! Children witnessed the horror. Poor kids! I can’t imagine the psychological damage they will suffer to the rest of their lives.
Kitten beheaded. Plovdiv.
Little, sweet, 1 month old Richie. He was tortured, his left hind leg was cut off by unknown sadist. He was rescued, treated and re-homed.
Poisoning is a horrific way to die. The last moments of life are cursed with dizziness, convulsions or excruciating pain. For the lucky few, death comes within minutes — but far too often, it’s a slow and agonizing spiral that can take hours.
That was exactly Slyncho’s case. He was a quite, timid, lovable homeless dog, who NEVER EVER attacked anybody! He had a lady friend and use to accompany her and her own dog to their evening walk.
On 6/11/2010 someone poisoned him. His agony continued 3.5 hours! His friend could not get him to a vet clinic…she tried to find somebody willing to drive him to the vet, but nobody agreed. She managed to get a dose of anti-poison, but it was too late. In her heartfelt note to us she wrote:” I watched him helplessly, suffering in excruciating pain! His eyes were begging me for help…there was nothing I could do… “
This is very disturbing. Not because it is more cruel that the rest of the documented murders and medieval style executions, but because the executors are GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS!!!
The tragedy happened yesterday in a small village in Bulgaria, called Palamartsa.
The story: THE MAYOR OF PALAMARTSA WENT TO HUNT STRAY DOGS TOGETHER WITH HIS FRIENDS.
THEY DID NOT HESITATE OF THE WITNESSES, ON THE CONTRARY, THEY “PROUDLY” WERE SHOOTING THE POOR ANIMALS AT THE FRONT LEGS FIRST, SO THEY CAN NOT RUN AWAY, THEN USED THEM AS A LIVE TARGET!!!
THIS IS BULGARIA IN 21 CENTURY. TODAY, 8 FEBRUARY BULGARIAN PARLIAMENT IS HAVING A DISCUSSION ABOUT THE NEED TO INCRIMINATE CRUELTY TO ANIMALS. SHALL WE, SHALLEN’T WE???
ISN’T IT SO OBVIOUS THAT BULGARIA MUST MAKE ITS SADISTS ACCOUNTABLE?
That man is the mayor of a tiny village in Bulgaria, called Romcha. His name is Mr ISKREN GEORGIEV. He orders mass-killings of the stray dogs and threatened to banish those kind-hearted people who feed them. He told the villagers: “I don’t care about any laws!” Full stop!
No doubt. I am pretty certain that he can’t read!
This poor cat is Bari. He was tortured in any sick way you can imagine- kicked, cut, beaten and set in flames!
Shame on you, sadists! Shame on you Bulgarian politicians for turning a blind eye on such an Evil tradition!
Varna, Bulgaria, 2011
This tragedy happened last year in Sofia, Bulgaria. Mecho was a special breed, unfriendly, strong-willed dog, born to be a guard dog.
Nobody knows what kind of crime he committed to deserve the punishment he received: he was beaten, suffocated with a cord and finally
his head was chopped off with an axe.
Do you think that the sadist was punished for this unspeakable cruelty? No! This is Bulgaria in 21st Century!
On this photo: Mecho after he was executed.

*Update: On 28/8/10, a 3 month old puppy was found skinned alive in a rescue center as a symbol of protest against the animal rights movement in Bulgaria! More info here: http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-485897 It’s getting far worse, please sign and forward this URGENT Petition!*
On March 26, 2010, a dog named Mima was found tortured, all her 4 legs brutally mutilated apparently over an old conflict between neighbors. Currently, animal cruelty is not a crime in Bulgaria. Thousands of their citizens protested and a proposal for a new law was sent to their Parliament to vote on.
As months progress, the situation in Bulgaria is getting worse. Animals and their advocates are now the target of more abuse from those who are angry of the attention their cause has received since Mima’s story of unimaginable torture came to light. A popular ”journalist” who used his TV show as a platform for hate speech, even had a guest showing techniques on how to poison strays. And now most recently, the Mayor of a town called Pernik, has ordered the poisoning of strays- absolute massacre of dogs, including those in the municipal shelters!! Some of the recent atrocities throughout Bulgaria, in addition to the daily poisoning and random shooting of strays by maniacs at large: a kitten’s head was decapitated, more dogs being hung from a bridge or a tree, another mutilation case- most recently, a very young puppy, an 80 year old woman who was caring for stray cats was assaulted by her neighbors. When animal lovers report these atrocities to the police, they’re either apathetic or they laugh it off.
On July 2010, the Parliament vote result for incriminating animal cruelty was a 9/9 split. The majority party is expected to turn it down! The final voting was supposed to take place in September but months later, we still have no news. To add more outrage, Bulgaria’s court ruled to dismiss Mima’s case on the grounds that they can’t prove a human mutilated all her 4 legs! A mockery!! We can not let Mima’s anguish be done in vain. The government’s inaction clearly shows that it is not listening to its people and international pressure is the only hope! Please sign and share this petition which will generate the pre-written letter below. This message will automatically be emailed directly to each of the targeted Bulgarian officials’ inbox. BOYCOTT BULGARIA, its tourism and all products made in Bulgaria until its government does the right thing and join the rest of the civilized nations that have criminalized animal cruelty long ago!
