There is a public shelter in Bosnia called zunovnica.

 

zuno-shelter-bosnia

Here the dogs are thrown into overcrowded mixed pens, never cleaned, never fed, never watered. Live dogs lay next to half eaten corpses, previous victims of the corrupt and heartless city hall. Dogs are not caught by dog catchers to be taken to safety, they are brought here to rot, to be killed by other dogs, to starve, to suffer the most unimaginable death. Terrified, alone , neglected and abused. Here the dogs souls are broken and they wait for the only thing that will give them peace….Death

This public shelter is paid for by public funds. For each of the stages below money is paid to the owner of this shelter by city hall from public funds, from tax payers money. None of this is being done, the city hall know this is not being done yet all it seems reap the profits from Bosnian tax payers because they certainly are not spending the money on the dogs!

PAID TO:

Catch the strays
To contain them – They are not being contained correctly as per Bosnian Animal welfare laws, so where is the money going?

To provide basic good standard food on a daily basis – They are not being fed so where is the money going?

To provide fresh water on a daily basis – They are not being watered so where is the money going to pay the water bills?

To provide a clean and safe environment, 2 staff will be on call to do this – Nothing is being cleaned , no dogs cared for – City Hall is paying public funds for staff to not do what they are employed to do
For veterinary care, to provide basic care to ensure quality of life – Dogs are left to rot, no vet visits here so where are the veterinary costs going to?

To euthanise humanely and to cremate the bodies – Again, not being done so who is pocketing tax payers funds?

 

As well as breaching Bosnia’s own animal welfare laws this is blatant misuse and fraud of public funds on every single level.

The doors are kept shut tight to ensure no one from the outside can video or photograph the horror of what is happening behind closed doors. Those that are allowed entry their mobiles and cameras are taken off of them until they leave.

This must not and can not continue.

We the undersigned do demand a public enquiry into the fraudulent use of public funds. That an independent investigation is carried out by the local government and police and the findings made public. For those responsible for the misuse of public funds, for the abuse, neglect and cruelty to the animals inside the public shelter to be brought to justice.

 

For the shelter to immediately be closed and time given for the dogs to be taken by local NGO rescues

or

That immediately a new management of the shelter is organised and new staff hired. That a local veterinarian chosen by local non profit groups is allowed in to treat , care and sterilise the animals.

That local volunteers are allow immediate entry and be allowed to care for the dogs inside
To allow local, national and international charities and non profits including the UK Charity Action Aid for Animals to organise food and aid in addition to the food already paid for by city hall , that will be distributed by the non profit groups and volunteers to the dogs inside as extra nutrition to the dogs on top of what city hall is obligated by law to provide.
To allow and encourage adoptions both locally, nationally and internationally and financially chip, vaccinate and sterilise all the dogs within the shelter.

 

We (SAV) have made attempts to get changes at other ‘shelters’ in B&H.

Everyone associated with these places has not made any efforts to contact us, despite promises to Slavica back at the time of the above post that changes were going to be made immediately and the updates sent to us.

This, along with the above petition just shows that like the Serbians, the authorities and government of Bosnia and Herzegovina simply cannot be trusted by anyone with regard things they say.

Please sign the petition – link given at the start, and hopefully with enough signatures and bad publicity too the B&H authorities, we can force change.

USA: The Saddest Show On Earth Is Finished – IT’S OVER FOR RINGLING BROS. CIRCUS.

ringling-shut-down-peta-602x524

Written by PETA | January 14, 2017

As of May, the saddest show on earth for wild animals will end.

Thirty-six years of PETA protests, of documenting animals left to die, beaten animals, and much more, has reduced attendance to the point of no return.

 

ring-1

All other animal circuses, roadside zoos, and wild animal exhibitors, including marine amusement parks like SeaWorld and the Miami Seaquarium, must take note: society  has changed, eyes have been opened, people know now who these animals are, and we know it is wrong to capture and exploit them.

 

ring-2

Thank you to everyone who has picked up a protest sign, passed out leaflets, written letters, shared videos, called legislators, spoken to family, and been part of this relentless pursuit of freedom for animals.

This would not have happened without you.

 

 

Watch the videos below to see how Ringling has treated animals – and then be thankful that come May, this abuse will be in the history books !

France: Excellent News – France To Install CCTV Cameras In ALL Slaughterhouses Across France.

fran0001

France‘s parliament voted on Friday to install CCTV cameras in slaughterhouses across France, following numerous scandals of animal cruelty.

Parliament voted to install cameras “in areas where the animals are delivered, kept, immobilized, stunned, and slaughtered”. 

The move is planned to be rolled out on January 1st, 2018 following an experimental phase this year. 


MPs stressed that the sole purpose of the cameras was to monitor animal welfare (and not workers in general). 

The vote came following a parliamentary report that was commissioned by the France’s National Assembly in March.

The 225-page report suggested 65 measures to improve the “transparency and the inadequate controls” at the slaughterhouses.

The government called for the report after the emergence of several videos depicting animal cruelty in French abattoirs. 

Filmed by animal rights group L214, the videos included images of workers repeatedly bashing sheep over the head, throwing a lamb at a wall, and decapitating a cow that was struggling. 

One shocking video from February last year was even filmed at a so-called “animal-friendly” slaughterhouse in France.

 An L214 spokesperson told The Local at the time that while camera surveillance was one of the best means to fix the problem, another was for consumers to simply eat less meat.

Romania: Death Is The Master In Romania – and The EU Accepts It Without Question.

rmna0001

Watch the video below to see the reality, then read the words below from Venus:

https://straydogsworldwide.wordpress.com/2017/01/13/5382/

 

“Death is a master from Romania” I would say today.
This quotation is used for the poetic description of fascism and comes from the “death fugue” of the lyric poet Paul Celan, which he wrote 1944 against German fascism.
“Death is a master from Germany”.
No! not more!

With regard to fascism on animals, Romania is today the champion of death, destruction, and crime against animals in Europe.

It is not only the corrupt system of the country that is responsible for this.
It is this crime syndicate, (which itself calls the European Union), the
assigning place for the preservation of all concentration camps of animals in this country.

And all over Europe.
With each euro a new shelter of death is created every day, the old ones are expanded.
The majority of the population is silent, it is holding back, that is, it cooperates so that it can sleep peacefully.
And therefore, anyone who writes or
publicly says the truth is suspected of being an extremist.

We have a new form of dictatorship, it is the dictatorship of democratically elected governments.
I know no polite language for murderers and executioners of animals.

On the contrary, I think we have been far too polite to date, much too modest.
I make it clear wherever I can be, that Romania is ruled by corrupt politicians, unrestrained lackeys of the EU Mafia, which have made the subsidized murder of animals a profession.
And I can only hope that my criticism becomes known.

        Liebe Grüße

UK: Sir Roger Moore (James Bond) to Prime Minister: It’s Past Time to Ban Animal Circuses.

uk

circus-is-no-fun-for-animals

SAV Comment:

In the year 2004 Mark was running a group called ‘North Kent Animal Welfare (NKAW)’.  At this time, NKAW submitted a memorandum to the House of Commons – the UK Government; regarding their views on the use of wild animals in UK circuses.  Remember that even at this time (2004), around 85% of the British public were disgusted and opposed to the use of wild animals in circuses.

Here below is a copy of part of the submission to the British government that Mark made (under the name of NKAW) as a contribution to the Draft Animal Welfare Bill (for the United Kingdom) which was being constructed at the time.  This is now a formal UK document / law which applies in the UK.  Unfortunately, despite the massive call by the British public; and additional representations into formal government draft documentation such as the draft animal welfare Bill, the UK has never passed law to ban the use of wild animals in UK circuses.

 nkaw-aw-bill-submission

aw-bill-front-cover

So here we are in 2017, some 13 years on, and despite promises by the utterly useless David Cameron; until recently the Prime Minister; we are still not witnessing any action by the British government to ban the use of wild animals in British circuses.

And so now we very much welcome the action taken by ‘James Bond’ – Sir Roger Moore in bringing this issue once again to the table of the current Prime Minister Theresa May.  You can read below the actions taken by Sir Roger and also give your support to the campaign by (once again) petitioning the British government on this issue. 

As Sir Roger clearly states in his letter:

‘All around the world, animal circuses are being banned. Countries such as Austria, Belgium, Mexico, and the Netherlands have all put an end to such barbarous cruelty to wild animals. Yet ever-so-civilised, animal-loving Britain still allows these archaic exhibitions simply because of a lack of action on the part of Downing Street’.

 

Please help us to get this ban for once and for all.  As you can see, we have been fighting to get a ban for well over 13 years.  It is time the government actually took action and implemented a full ban rather than the wishy washy ignorance to the British public’s wants up until now.  We expected little from useless David Cameron; but now we have Mrs. May as Prime Minister; we demand action is taken.

Well done Sir Roger for speaking up for animals in British circuses.

 ARTICLE:

Sir Roger Moore to PM: It’s Past Time to Ban Animal Circuses

The actor, humanitarian, and animal advocate urged Theresa May to outlaw this archaic form of so-called “entertainment”.

Sir Roger Moore has a message for Theresa May. In a moving article in today’s Sunday People, the actor, humanitarian, and animal advocate urges the Prime Minister to introduce legislation banning wild-animal circuses.

He writes:

All around the world, animal circuses are being banned. Countries such as Austria, Belgium, Mexico, and the Netherlands have all put an end to such barbarous cruelty to wild animals. Yet ever-so-civilised, animal-loving Britain still allows these archaic exhibitions simply because of a lack of action on the part of Downing Street.

I’m well aware that policy change doesn’t come overnight, but popular legislation to prohibit circuses from keeping tigers in see-through boxes called cages and carting them about the land has been dragging on for aeons, because the Prime Minister holds the key and won’t give it up.

Speaking on the issue, Stanley Johnson – our very own foreign secretary’s father – said, “[W]e have had several years now of shilly-shallying. We need to move forward”. And indeed, we do.

Wild animals in real life must feel as if they’ve been captured by the fictional Dr No. When they’re not being forced to perform confusing tricks under threat of the whip, they’re chained up or tied down. They’re denied everything that gives their lives meaning. It’s no wonder that they develop abnormal and disturbing behaviour, such as incessantly biting the bars of their cages, pacing endlessly back and forth, or even self-mutilating. If they become sick or are injured while en route to the next show, a veterinarian with expertise in exotic species may be hours, if not days, away – if anyone is called at all.

Read the full article here.

 

Sir Roger states that “[u]ntil a ban is imposed, Britain continues to say ‘Roll up, roll up’ to abuse”. Join him in letting the Prime Minister know that it’s time – past time – to outlaw this archaic form of so-called “entertainment”. Please add your name to our online action:
