Reference: Proposed mass slaughter of dogs in Brasov

To whom it may concern

Please note I have chosen to send you this generic correspondence as it wholly echoes my opinion and beliefs in this matter and is to be treated in the same regard as if I had written the entirety of this correspondence personally.

It has been learnt today through the international network that inBrasovit is being planned to kill/massacre all strays within that area.

May I remind you that if this mass slaughter goes ahead that the government workers who represent the Romanian Government in that area are in direct violation of European Animal Welfare laws, and by breeching such agreements the Romanian Government themselves are acting criminally, and the European citizens will be petitioning the European parliament demanding for a review of Romania’s status within the EU and an investigation into monies received by your government by that parliament.

You simply cannot sweep away these proposed actions as you have tried with the slaughter of 220 dogs in anotherRomaniaProvinceearlier this week on 11th May. To mass slaughter on this scale is not only putting your own Government and country under scrutiny but also the veterinary services in your country.

Under no circumstances is this horrific proposal to go ahead, the European and International community is already rising up against you, these types of actions will only weaken your position within the European and International community and media, and in-turn the parliaments and Governments that represent the communities within them. 

You are forcing your hand to an extent where the people who these governments and parliaments represent will demand you be removed as an EU member and along with this the Billions of Euros your country claims and is given each year by those same Governments.

China: Activists Save 430 Stolen Dogs on Truck to Restaurants.

Activists Save 430 Stolen Dogs on Truck to Restaurants in China

Chinese animal activists blocked a toll station in Beijing, China, to save 430 dogs that were being transported from Henan Province to restaurants in other parts of the country. 

According to the China Daily, about 10 dogs in the truck were already dead and another 100 were dehydrated and showing signs of infectious diseases. The dogs apparently had been trapped in the truck for two days with no food or water. Many wore tags that showed they were people’s pets and had probably been stolen.

A motorist saw the truckload of dogs and positioned his car in front of the vehicle to stop it, according to the report. He then alerted animal activists by microblog, and more than 200 people swamped the checkpoint to demand release of the animals.

It took over 15 hours of negotiations before the transport company agreed to sell the dogs to the activists for 11,500 yuan, which is about $1,770 dollars.

“It is clear that people in Henan have been stealing pets and selling them to restaurants,” said Wang Qi of China Small Animal Protection Association, who added that the dogs included Golden Retrievers and Huskies with bells and nametags still on their necks. 

Some of the animals were healthy enough to be taken to the China Small Animal Protection Association and will be made available for adoption after 30 days; however, the remainder went to animal hospitals across the capital, according to China Daily

AnimalEquality, International Organization for the Abolition of Animal Slavery, posted the story on April 18, 2011. Laura Gough, London Coordinator for AnimalEquality, wrote,

 “We thought it was interesting to publish it and relate the way we treat some animals in our daily life and discriminate against others. This way people can realize that our way of seeing animals and the way we discriminate against them is cultural. We promote veganism, and try to make people aware of speciesism.”

Humane Society International, writes, “The rescue operation will have a long-standing impact on China’s animal-protection movement. 

”The operation once again highlighted the pressing issue of dog eating and its adverse impact on human health. More than half of the dogs rescued were seriously ill. Are they food or are they health hazards? The operation is forcing the Chinese authorities to rethink their passive position on dog eating and long-distance live transport.”

“When the caring volunteers have to say goodbye, the eyes of the dogs seem to ask ‘When are you coming back?’” said Professor Lu Di, director and founder of China Small Animal Protection Association. “These dogs are so forgiving.

They embrace us humans and never hold our wrongdoings against us.
