Hi Mark,

This is proof  from VU Veterina Belgrade, that the firm that removes the corpse took the dog’s body under the bottom left-hand spot, the body of the dead dog

The dog is chipped and looking for the owner

The autopsy is mandatory by official duty in every case of  crime.

I insist on abduction-autopsy .

Thanks.

Here is a photograph of a stray dog which was killed by the driver of a car in Belgrade.  As you can see from the photo; it appears that the driver of the car just walked away from the incident, leaving the animal under the wheels of the vehicle.

 

Slavica (EPAR) in Serbia; and also ourselves, have written to the Belgrade authorities to ask what actions they and the police are taking.  It is clear from the photo the vehicle details; so the police should have no problem identifying and contacting the driver / owner.

We have given the authorities until 30/9/17 to provide us with an update of actions.  If we have not heard anything back from them by then, we will have no option but to involve supporters.

 

Below are Slavica’s and our letters.

SAV Belgrade letter 18 Sept.

 

Extra 18/9/17 – this type of animal abuse must not be allowed by a state (Serbia) wishing to join the EU.

We sent our letter to the EU (Enlargement Commissioner Hahn) – responsible for reviewing applicant member states.  We have now had confirmation that he has seen our letter.

Your message

We now hope this puts additional leanings on the Belgrade authorities to act in a positive manner.

 

 

 

Catalonia (Spain) – Liberation from the EU ?

Dear Mark, because in two weeks the referendum for the independence of catalonia takes place, I wanted to write some thoughts about it.

Liberation from the EU

The Catalan regional president Carles Puigdemont has announced that on 1 October 2017, a referendum on the independence of the Catalonia region from Spain will take place. The Prime Minister of Spain, Mariano Rahoy, illegally criminalized the vote of the Catalans and announced that he would go against the referendum “by all means”. Spanish media reports that the central government is planning to send 4,000 policemen to Catalonia to prevent the referendum.

On 1 October, on the day of the election, the officials are to seize urns and voting material. The prosecutor’s office in Spain has criminalized more than 700 mayors from the region of Catalonia and invited them to a hearing. Whoever does not come, is arrested. This is reminiscent of the old, black times of Franco, but does not surprise anyone. Because the majority of the People’s Party (Partido Popular), is nevertheless from the right corner.

“Can anybody in the Western world seriously believe that if 75 percent of the (Catalan) mayors are arrested, they help to solve the problem?” Asked Catalan Prime Minister Carles Puigdemont. All this is happening in an EU country, but the EU is silent, and ahead of all, the President of the EU Commission Juncker. He had announced a press conference on 12.09.2017, which he cancelled! Nevertheless, one can guess how Juncker thinks about the Catalan referendum.

He considers the idea of an independent Catalonia to be a complete nonsense. It would harm its EU politically and economically because an independent country is no longer a member of the EU. Juncker, of course, does not say such a thing, because the consequences of this press conference would be easily imaginable: the Catalan people would have placed alongside the enemy image Madrid the enemy image Brussels. In addition, Scotland could reinstate its independence efforts. That is why Juncker has canceled his press conference and the EU is silent. If their political and economic interest is in danger, then the EU is silent.

The Catalan Prime Minister, Carles Puigdemont, said: “If a majority vote with ‘yes’ at the referendum, we have probably deserved the right to be heard from such people as Mr Junker, for example. They are probably under pressure from Madrid, but I’ve said so many times, and I say it now, in a democracy, the right to ignore someone does not exist. “

But Juncker and his friend Rahoy, do not hold much of democracy. That is why I think that the best for Catalonia would be to leave not only Spain, but also the EU.

I want to finish my thoughts with a sentence from Assange:

@JulianAssange If today is a guide on Oct 1 Europe will birth a new 7.5m nation or civil war. Front page news English media hide. https://twitter.com/JulianAssange/status/907289458797674496 …

My best regards to you an all

The Girl Who Says Exactly How We Feel.

England:   ‘Tiger’ Joanna Krupa Visits Westminster to Call for Ban on Wild-Animal Circuses.

‘Tiger’ Joanna Krupa Visits Westminster to Call for Ban on Wild-Animal Circuses

 

Supermodel and activist Joanna Krupa posed as a tiger outside Westminster today to speak out for animals exploited in circuses and to urge the government to outlaw this cruel practice in England and Wales

“I’ve always loved and respected the importance the UK places on protecting animals – which is why I was so surprised to learn that wild-animal circuses are still allowed to tour in England and Wales,” said Joanna. “No animal should be forced to perform tricks for entertainment, and it’s time the British government put an end to this cruelty.”

Wild animals in circuses spend their lives confined to cramped cages and barren trailers as they’re carted up and down the country. Trainers bully them into performing confusing tricks, often beating them into submission if they don’t obey. Denied the opportunity to do anything that is natural and important to them, they frequently suffer from chronic health problems and psychological disorders – and many die prematurely.

 

Fortunately, wild-animal circuses are part of a dying industry, and more and more countries around the world are outlawing them. David Cameron promised to introduce a ban in England and Wales when he was Prime Minister but failed to do so, even though 94 per cent of respondents to a government consultation supported one. Scotland introduced legislation banning wild-animal circuses earlier this year, so there’s no excuse for England and Wales not to do the same.

 

What You Can Do

Please contact the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Michael Gove, and ask him to bring England and Wales in line with the many countries that have outlawed animal acts in circuses.

USA: Ask Alaska Airlines To Stop Its Support Of Iditarod and Many Dog Deaths.

In just one week of the 2017 race—when temperatures hit 30 degrees below or colder for days at a time—five dogs died.

One got away from his handler and was hit by a car, another died of hyperthermia on a plane, and three others died on the trail, one likely from choking on his own vomit.

More than 150 dogs have been killed in the race’s history—not counting those who died during the year while kept on chains or who were killed because they lacked the rare speed and stamina necessary to make the cut.


Please join PETA in urging Alaska Airlines to end its sponsorship of this abusive race in which dogs are run to their deaths.

UK RESIDENTS ONLY ACTION – Strong Suggestion That UK Will Ban Live Animal Exports After Brexit (Leaving the EU). Thank Mr. Gove For A Positive Comment.

Environment Secretary, Michael Gove, has suggested that Britain may end the cruel UK live export trade after Brexit.

IF YOU ARE UK RESIDENT ONLY – Please email him today, welcoming this suggestion and urging him to act.

 

Above – Minister Gove with canine friend.

Compassion’s investigators have just arrived back from the Turkish/Bulgarian border, where they have been documenting the condition of animals in transit.

 

SAV Comment – click on this link above to read more about what the investigators found and as always, where EU law for animals in transport is being breached. 

An issue we have shown for years and campaigned strongly about.  Van Goethem and the others at the EU simply say they can do nothing, despite having regulations that they could act on with regard prosecutions.  The EU – useless as always; a big tub of useless hot air in Brussels !

What they found was shocking and appalling, but sadly not surprising.

Time and again we see evidence that animals suffer during long distance transport, but nothing is done.

Brexit gives the British government an opportunity to take a stand.

We must ensure the global trade in animals for fattening or slaughter is dismantled, a UK ban would be a historic first step.

 

You can take further action at the following link BUT ONLY IF YOU LIVE IN THE UK.
