Dear friends, I know, this is horrible…bad news after bad news…but please….please…HELP…
We just found out…literally meaning JUST FOUND OUT, one hour ago, that starting tomorrow MAY 17, 2011 they will start the ROUND UP and the transport to SLAUGHTER of the famous wild horses who live in the Letea Forest in the Danube Delta….for , maybe hundreds of years….Yes, they have multiplied…there are about 4,000….this is not an astronomical number…YET Romanian authorities have come up, AGAIN , with the only solution they are capable of : KILL THEM ALL…
Please take a look at this documentary…please stand by the people who try to save them…Please forward this note to all HORSE RESCUE ORGANIZATION IN THE WORLD…this can not be allowed to happen…
And take a look at this paradise, in the Danube Delta, which they want to STAIN WITH BLOOD
Please read about the Natural Park LETEA, in the Danube Delta in Romania…it is home to extraordinary wild horses…now they want to MASSACRE THEM…and they have a genetic material recognized by scientifics…the only horses who grow longer hair in winter…they can live in very rough condition…they are a treasure……now they go after the horses too..
SUBJECT : Please STOP the round-up and the slaughter of the wild horses in the Danube Delta
We just found out with stupor, about the decision of local authorities in the Galati county, to start the round up and the SLAUGHTER of the wild horses who live in the renowned natural Park The Letea Forest, th the Danube Della.
We are appalled by these kind of decisions, to slaughter animals, taken recently by Romanian authorities…it is beyond our understanding WHY other, more civilized and humane measures are never taken in consideration by Romanian Authorities when it come the over population of animals, of any kind.
It is very obvious that Romanian authorities are prone to KILL animals, rather than develop and implement programs which will help solve these situations in a civilized and humane manner as expected from a country in the EU in the 21st century.
We are aware of the treasure these animals represent , as described in the videos linked bellow:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqm4El-TPwg&feature=related We kindly ask the Romanian Authorities to immediately reverse their decision and to consult with International Animal welfare organizations, Romanian Animal Protection Organizations, specialists , and to find another solution to let these animals live in peace in their natural habitat. We are determined to expose the way Romanian treats animals, all over the world, and we are also determined to boycott Romania, because such barbaric treatment of animals is unacceptable in the civilized world.
In the last couple of months, Romania took front stage , around the world, with the HORRIBLE treatment of stray dogs…who Romania continues to slaughter…now, Romania decided to also KILL all WILD HORSES…
Please, dear Romanian officials, look at these videos…and think again…all you do lately is to DESTROY…
Please read the information given by Mr. Stefan Raileanu about the wild horses from the Danuve Delta :”Caii semisalbatici sunt prezenti in �ntregul areal al Deltei, iar in ultimii ani au devenit o problema destul de mare si un subiect de controversa, din cauza inmultirii lor. In Letea, caii sunt o problema pentru padure, zona protejata de stat, intrucat rod scoartele copacilor, ceea ce duce apoi la uscarea lor. Unele estimari indica in jur de 2500 de cai in areal. Altele – in jur de 1000. Din cauza ca au crescut un timp indelungat fara supravegherea omului, acesti cai au dezvoltat unele obiceiuri caracteristice unor animale semi-salbatice. Este greu sa te apropii de ei, caci se tem de o oameni si te simt imediat ce ai �ncalcat o distanta de siguranta. Fiecare grup este condus de o pereche ce are grija de restul turmei, iar cea mai mare autoritate o are armasarul, care este si cel ce da semnalul de retragere, cu un scurt nechezat sau cateva lovituri cu copita in pamant. Uneori, cand simte ca turma e amenintata, armasarul fuge intr-o directie, pentru a-i ademeni pe atacatori, iar iapa conduce restul turmei in alta directie, mai sigura. Caii din Letea s-au adaptat conditiilor dificile de hrana, iernilor grele si verilor toride. Pe timp de iarna, parul de pe corp le creste de 3 ori mai repede decat al cailor obisnuiti. In plus, au dezvoltat abilitatea de a metaboliza mai bine celuloza, iar asta le permite sa reziste chiar daca au de mancare doar scaieti si uscaturi. Alti cai ar avea dificultati in a supravietui in aceste parti. “Caii din Delta sunt singurele exemplare care mai dau rusticitatea speciei. Astazi, caii de sport pierd rezistenta la boli, la frig si capacitate de efort in conditii suprasolicitante. Vor veni vremuri cand acesti cai vor reprezenta o comoara zootehnica, o baza genetica importanta ce va repara tot ce pierd rasele specializate. Vor fi din ce in ce mai putine locuri in care se vor gasi comori zootehnice ca acestea. Aceste cabaline sunt o minune si nu trebuie sa fie privite ca niste daunatori”, spune Stefan Raileanu de la Institutul National de Cercetare si Dezvoltare Delta Dunarii.
It is beyond our understanding how the decision to KILL these animals has been taken…
Please, take note about this broadcast on international television about these wonderful animals you intend to KILL..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRdV5oQL1AY&feature=related
We thank you for the time accorded to read this petition and we still hope that the Romanian authorities will bring back their own country in the 21st century, in the civilized world.
Please also take note of this petition
The time has come for the Romanian Government to honour the membership of Romania in the EU, and to solve all problems regarding animals overpopulation, based on the principles stipulated in the International Conventions and Treaties Romanian has signed and ratified.
Thank you very much for your attention.

More than 200 dogs massacred at Botosani Romania animal shelter (VIDEO)
- May 13th, 2011 12:03 pm ET
On Tuesday, over 200 dogs were killed at a public shelter at the Botosani, Romania animal shelter by the order of the mayor. Supposedly, an overnight decision was made based on fear of an epidemic at the shelter because some of the dogs in the shelter were sick. Volunteers discovered the dogs the next this morning– in plastic bags with traces of blood everywhere. The dogs were not euthanatized by injection but slaughtered. The volunteers were in shock and tried to save the few remaining puppies that were alive, but were allegedly assaulted and offended by the guards.
Public shelters in Romania do not have a quarantine zone and only the NGOs feed the dogs and offer medical services. The dogs are typically kept in improper conditions because the final goal is for them to die. Euthanasia is illegal in Romania unless the dogs are sick.
Video of this tragedy appeared on the news in Romania and can be seen by clicking on the video link to the left. A Romanian news article gives an account of the event according to one of the volunteers that found the deceased dogs (roughly translated):
“It’s hard to describe in words what I see here. Hundreds of dogs dead, killed in an hour! We tried to get some puppies in a legal manner but it was postponed and all were empty promises and ultimately saw that they wanted to kill them all. Yesterday, ADOR members came and fed the dogs on the basis of an agreement with the City. The animals were healthy. Indeed there were some sick puppies, but not rabies, as they sy.. Yesterday there were 230 dogs, we report. Today I found several near the paddocks and I took them with us. We had raised money to pull dogs for adoption, they knew of it but it proved to be in vain. We filed a criminal complaint, we do not know what will happen… we’ll see, “said Eugen Nistor, ADOR Member of Botosani.
The NGO from Botosani that has been helping this animals in the shelter is ADOR. Their mission includes the following:
- Partnership with City Hall to reduce the number of dogs from the streets of Botosani through human and civilized means
- Campaign to collect food for shelter dogs from Botosani
- Campaign to educate the population and to sterilize stray animals (sterilizations performed by veterinarians and volunteers using foundation funds)
- Campaign to educate people about animal feces being picked up on public space
- Campaign to inform the population about the legal provisions regarding abandonment of animals and animal torture
- Organizing an adoption fair for stray dogs and cats
- Organizing cultural performances to raise funds for helping the dogs in shelters
Photos from a Botosani march in silence for the dogs killed in shelter can be found in the slideshow link to the left and on the ADOR Facebook page. More photos and video from the march can be seen at this Romanian website as well as here.
If you are outraged at the mass murder of the dogs at the Botosani shelter, you can contact the mayor, Catalin Mugurel Flutur, directly at email@example.com. You can also find a sample letter and a list of all email addresses for the local politicians at his website.

It is obvious, that local authorities in Romania, are DETERMINED to EXTERMINATE the strays, with or without the blessing of a LAW….they now try all possible ways to KILL AS MANY dogs as possible…
Tuesday night ( May 10/11, 2011 ) they have KILLED all 200 dogs in the shelter of Botosani Romania…based on, most likely prefabricated information that an incurable disease has been discovered…(distemper)…The workers, attacked the media with bricks and a smell of alcohol surrounded them, it is said that they denied access to the POLICE !…it is very unlikely that these poor creatures have been ” humanely PTS ! Now, the Sanitary-Veterinary office from Botosani has discovered the …..”disease” and the Deputy- Mayor gave the order to kill the dogs…The Local Association, has been able to save 10 of them..
Please be so kind and sent the letter bellow. The ” euthanasia” took place over night. The veterinarian says that he PTS 200 dogs in 2 hours, with Inter-thoracic injection… well…you see, THEY, LOCAL AUTHORITIES, will find all kind of “explanation ” to KILL…please look at the photos, at the bottom of the note, you will see the dogs one day before their slaughter !

To whom it may concern,
I, as a human being and citizen of the world, can not find the right words to express my outrage about the massacre of strays at the city pound in Botosani, Romania.
It has become obvious already that local authorities in your country will do anything to slaughter as many strays as possible.
What has happened in your town is yet another example of how horrible the animals are treated in your country, and and there is no excuse for this barbarism.
It is obvious that the poor animals in the shelter of Botosani have been killed in barbaric ways, ( based on the media reports) and it is obvious that the employees of the shelter , by throwing bricks to the journalists, and by refusing even the Police the access in the premises, have displayed the REAL face of the barbaric treatment of animals.
Although the veterinarian says that HE euthanized 200 dogs, it is very strange that this procedure has been done over night, and that by 6 am, the next day all corpses were already ready to be sent to incineration at PROTAN…
I shall boycott Romania until the animals will be treated properly and until Romania will implement the only successful program to reduce strays population, recommended by the WHO, Capture/Castrate/RETURN….and will implement and APPLY real laws for the protection of animals…
Indeed, Romania is the land of death for the animals…
I try to understand WHY the animals have been killed OVER NIGHT…? And why the local association DID NOT KNOW about the distemper epidemic in the shelter,…and why the dogs where OK one day before…
I still hope that a HONEST, THOROUGH and OPEN investigation will take place and ALL those responsible for this hideous crime against innocent animals, will be punished.
Thank you very much for your attention ,
