Smederevo ozakonilo eksperimente nad životinjama?!

News from Slavica in Serbia.

The following link is a newspaper article relating to the unlawful killing of animals by the city of Smederevo.

The Smederevo authorities appear to be making up their own laws on animal welfare, including killing; rather than undertake the official stance as defined by the Constitutional Court.

The Smederevo policy as it currently stands is in full disagreement with Article 46 of the Veterinary Law, as well as Articles 7 and 15 of the Serbian law for animal welfare.

The selling of stray dogs to laboratories is forbidden by law, and yet it appears to be happening in Smederevo city.  This must be considered as criminal trading and making unlawful profit by the same process.

Immediate public and global action needs to be taken against the authorities of Smederevo city who are responsible for these illegal actions.

The e mail addresses and telephone numbers for the Smederevo authorities – those who are responsible for this illegal action is as follows:

Načelnik Gradske uprave: Milijana Novaković
Zamenik načelnika Gradske uprave: Zoran Anđelković

Slavica (EPAR) has just written to the Serbian Constitutional Court regarding Smederevo city.  Learning from recent work and Constitutional Court approval of her wrok in Subotica city for the animals there, Slavica is hopeful of a positive result also regarding Smederevo.

Under the verdict of the Constitutional Court, Subotica must now make new legislation / regulation for the stray animals.  The Subotica authorities made a new regulation on 27/9/2012 associated with the numbers control of stray dogs and cats.  But this new regulation states the word ‘euthanaia’ which is in direct opposition to Article 46 of the Serbian Veterinary law and which also is in opposition to Article 7 on the law relating to animal welfare.

And so it can be said that Subotica city is still writing illegal regulations.  This information is currently being submitted to the Serbian Constitutional Court, and it is hoped that it will be in full agreement that Subotica is acting illegally by writing this new regulation, which is in disagreement with national legislation.

In the last few months a lot of information has been given again to the Constitutional Court.

Information relates to:

1.            Regulation.  Named: Programme in matter of control of stray dogs/cats population number in Subotica.

2            Document.  Regulation named: Pravilnik and made by Ministry of Agriculture of Serbia about hunter dogs which are allowed / permitted to fight.

3.         Law associated with hunting and wild-animals.

4            And now this Smederevo municipallity created official regulation in which says that shinters could sell cats and dogs to laboratories – to be used for experiments, or alternatively kill them by “humane euthanasia“ after 10-30 days from being caught –  both ways are in opposition to laws. Hopefully this would be fairly easy to win as the law is very clear on this matter.

So now Slavica waits for results to the above four actions.

As before when Slavica had had good verdicts; there are 15 judges at the Constitutional Court of Serbia who will work together to review the evidence.

The court was on Slavica’s side in all 3  past cases as she provided very precise, correct and detailed information.  Now we have to wait and see what will be the verdict of these 4 cases.

  1. These acts of animal cruelty in Serbia are heart breaking and need to be addressed so that people are made aware of their ill treatment. Hopefully the new legislation will help these stray animals.

  2. If this act is unlawful why are you closing your eyes to it Please do something for these innocent animals Have some compassion today and enforce the law to stop this happening We as humans can at least plead for our life These poor animals cannot even do this
    Please stop this horror the animals dont deserve this

  3. Stop the cruelty.

  4. So much animal cruelty in Europe is hard to believe.


  6. Animals deserve better , stop animal cruelty !

  7. Please do something to help these dogs.

  8. Why this cruelty? Ban this praticts to become human.

  9. For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.

  10. There is no excuse for this cruelty!

  11. We Greeks always supported Serbia. But if this torturing of animals doesn´t stop I am afraid that I will consider you as an uncivilized country and I will do whatever is in my power to show widely how inhumanly you treat animals in Smederevo. There are international laws people!!

  12. My heart goes out to all of these poor animals, please stop such torture to these dogs.

  13. Stop animal cruelty, they deserve better. Animals feel pain too.

    No animal deserves to be abused like this :(((

  15. Ludi…nemojte biti ne ljudi.Mi smo valjda civilizovana zemlja,vekovima stara…Nemojte raditi takve monstruoznosti nad zivotinjama.Nemojte dozvoliti da se stidimo zemlje u kojoj zivimo,a to sto radite je bolesno,neljudski,demonski…MOLIM VAS U MOJE IME,U IME SVOJE DECE U IME SVAKOG NORMALNOG COVEKA da prekinete sa monstruoznostima,mucenjem i ubijanjem zivotinja…

  16. Je vous demande d’annuler sans attendre la décision barbare et abjecte que vous avez prise. L’expérimentation animale ne peut être comparée qu’aux crimes nazis. La vivisection est injustifiable et doit être abolie partout dans le monde.

  17. Stop this cruelty to animals, it’s barbaric & won’t be tolerated by decent humans.

  18. Be human. Be compassionate. Care for these souls as you would yourself. Stop the killing and give them good care and the best homes.

  19. What a disgrace! Shame on you for doing this. After all the pain, death and suffering in that region, one expected that you show more empathy for your fellow creatures!
