Serbia: November 2010 – Conditions ‘Ok’ at a Farm According to Serbian Veterinary Ministry – and Complaining Campaigners, ‘Dont Pressure Us’.

 

Just when you begin to think that the situation for most animals in Serbia can get no worse, despite the valiant efforts and work of Serbian animal activists, another story raises its head. Rather than our usual dealings with regard stray animals, this time the work involves farm animals.

We talk specifically of a farm in Rusko Selo, northern Serbia. Campaigners have issued charges to the Republic veterinary inspector regarding the conditions in which animals are kept at this facility. The first charge was sent on 25.6.2010, and the second on 21.11.2010. Copies of both these charges can be seen below.

The Republic veterinary inspector responded on 1.7.2010 informing campaigners that they had acted. The inspectors even had the audacity to declare to campaigners that by raising this issue, they were ‘putting unnecessary pressure; on the veterinary inspectors !

In their latest communication, campaigners have now insisted that the Republic veterinary inspectors suspend the operation of the facility (farm) and that the owner be prosecuted for causing unnecessary suffering to animals.

The series of photographs below provide an overview of the current situation for which campaigners are now demanding action from the Republic veterinary inspector.

As can be seen in one of the photographs, a newspaper dated 21.11.2010 is shown as photographic evidence that this situation is current and not a record of past events. The newspaper provides evidence of the date and time at which these photographs were taken.

Despite their claims that they have ‘acted’ on this issue, we now call on the Republic veterinary inspectors to act and to support the calls of the animal welfare lobby. Regardless of the situation, there is no justifiable excuses for animals to be kept and treated in the way which we are showing in the photographs below.

SAV have now provided the link to this SAV post and all of the photographs to no fewer than 20 animal welfare organisations throughout Europe which are national contacts for the European Coalition for Farm Animals (ECFA). We hope that some of these organisations will contact the Serbian Republic veterinary inspector demanding further action be taken relating to this disgusting facility.  E mail contact addresses can be found on the ‘To’ copies below.

SAV are currently seeking expert opinion regarding the conditions shown in the photographs; for future action if it is necessary should there be no action from the Serbian authorities (Ministry).

What can be seen in these photographs is not acceptable for any potential future member of the European Union. Regardless of weather conditions where they are kept, farm animals should not be kept under these conditions, walking around continually in their own liquid excrement. We understand that some of the animals shown are in calf.

We call on all our international supporters to contact their MEPs directly, providing a few copies of some of the photographs below and asking their MEPs to contact the EU Commission for Enlargement, requesting if these pictures now show the future way that European farming will be going should new member states such as Serbia join.  Serbia is not acting about these conditions, so will this now be acceptable treatment of farm animals by new future EU member states ?

Charge letters from Serbian campaigners are as follows:

  1. How can anyone look at this and not feel sympathy for these poor wretched animals ,what has happened to “man”?to allow this ,all they want is to be able to graze in a paddock eating grass ,but this is denied to them and they stand there up to their hocks in mud and their own excrement,,to the people responsible ‘shame on you”,if there is ever any justice in the world I hope you get what you deserve for the neglect and abuse of these animals,so sad ,and I have to ask ‘why”?why can’t you give them a paddock for their short lives ,not a mud hole .

  2. This is down right WRONG. Man is showing what he truly is like. He is nothing short of evil.

    I hope one day that all people who harm God’s creatures will pay for their acts.!

  3. Awful……………………………..

  4. ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE CRUEL TO ANIMALS WILL ROT IN HELL OR HOPEFULLY BE TORTURED SLOWLY THEMSELVES.
