The situation at this present time is that ‘Nani’ deer is still being retained by the hunters.  

STILL NO ACTION by Serbian Minister of Agriculture, 

Mrs Bogosavljevic Boskovic;

Serb Minister 1

On this post you will see the latest photographs from 16/10/14.


We are now approximately 2 months into still not having a decision / action by Serbian Minister of Agriculture, Mrs Bogosavljevic Boskovic; who originally had 30 days for acting in agreement to Article 58 of Serbian Law for Animal Welfare.  

We consider this shows just how chronically bad the Serbian Ministry of Agriculture is as it is still not capable of making a decision some 30 days BEYOND its final decision date under existing Serbian Law !!

SoOn 16/10/14 SAV made telephone contact with Members of the European Parliament (MEP) in London to explain the current situation of Nani and the fact that Serbian Minister of Agriculture, Mrs Bogosavljevic Boskovic is incapable of still making a decision on the future of Nani.

We constantly reminded MEP’s that any member state currently seeking EU Accession (membership) must be continually showing that it is ‘applying the rule of law’ with regard its own national legislation. 


Applying the Serbian rule of law is certainly not the case regarding the situation with ‘Nani’, as Serbian Minister of Agriculture, Mrs Bogosavljevic Boskovic originally had 30 days for acting in agreement to, and implementing Article 58 of Serbian Law for Animal Welfare.  


By not applying its own rule of law, Serbia is NOT currently meeting the membership requirements even needed to be considered for EU membership.  We again reminded the MEP’s of this situation, who are going to work further on the issue of ‘Nani’ today; 17/10/14.


Making a decision on the future of a deer is not ‘rocket science’, and yet Serbian Ministers DO NOT seem capable of doing it.  Is it a corruption issue between the Ministers, police and hunters one has to question; or is it simply that Serbian government ministers cannot and do not wish to apply existing Serbian legislation (laws) to the running of Serbia ???


Something in Serbian legislation is drastically wrong, and we suggest it starts at the top and works down, from Ministers such as (Serbian) Minister of Agriculture, Mrs Bogosavljevic Boskovic.


From the very start, we said that we would never give up on the issue of ‘Nani’; until Nani is rightfully returned to adoptive parent and carer Mrs Mitic.  This is still the case; until we get a decision that Nani returns to Mrs. Mitic, we will continue to show to you, and to EU MEP’s, that Serbia is NOT enforcing its own rules of law.


The Serbian government has to live with that – do they abuse their own national legislation system and continue to be shown by organisations such as us that they are certainly not worthy EU membership candidates at present; or do they implement Serbian national law, do the right this and return Nani deer to owner Mrs. Mitic.


We were informed by London on 16/10 that we would be getting an update on the situation with regard their actions in the very near future.  We will post this as applicable on this site.




Article – Speak out to save the life of baby deer ‘Nani’:


 Petition wording:

Hunters and the police took away a motherless baby deer from his home and his foster and now want to put him into a zoo. Their first plan was to slaughter him (as it is the usual practice here), but because of the public reaction the baby was saved. However he is not cared for properly. He has diarrhea and shows signs of stress and fear. He misses his caretaker very much and that feeling is mutual. The struggle to gain him back lasts for more than two weeks. Authorities are not doing their job and it may cost this baby deer’s life. Minister of Agriculture can issue an order that will bring Nani back home and there is a legitimate possibility for that however that is not happening even though Nani’s family has requested it. If Nani ends up in a zoo it will seal his life as a captive animal for good. Please help!
