After Romania has adopted in 2007 a new animal welfare act, now they want to return to the inhuman state of the legal mass slaughterings.
During a radiointerview from the 3rd of February, 2010 the prefect of Bucharest, Mr. Mihai Atanasoaiei announced, that it is considered to legalize mass killings again!!!!
He stated that the mayors of Bucharest feel overtaxed with the existing street animal problems.
And so killings are taken into consideration again. But we don’t want to forget, that killings, in spite of existing paragraphs in the Romanian animal welfare act, are still carried out all over the country.
Strangle or beat to death, sadly, is still daily routine, parts of the population simply poison the animals without having to fear consequences.
The senior consultant of the city of Craiova, Antonie Solomon, has taken publicly a stand on it and expresses himself quite clearly PRO slaughterings.
He takes his hat off to the representatives of the circle of Dolji if they agreed to an appropriate change in the law.
Supposedly 5 from 7 phone calls of citizens refer to the street animals.
Such a brazenness makes us stunned!
First and foremost because there are countless animal welfarists who would like to do nothing else than to help the animals in Romania.
- they offer help by castration actions.
- they offer help with the construction of animal homes
- they offer help for the feed care
- they offer help with medical care.
As a rule all offers of help are rejected. With a lot of luck politely, but not seldom it happens, that the animal welfarists who would like to enter an animal home, are physically threatened by the leadership of the animal home.
To be allowed to enter an animal home, one needs an official permission of the authorities. Taking photos is forbidden there. Unless, one also receives for this an official approval, too .
To receive this, it must be applied. With this application one must give all personal data. It feels as if one wants to enter a high-level security tract of a prison.....
Such approvals are given only sparely.
Why is it made almost impossible by the Romanian authorities to help the animals there? Not only foreign animal welfarists are kept from becoming active there, but also locals.
At occasional places it has become possible to build up a kind of cooperation. Unfortunately, this is not the rule.
We would like to point to the Romanian government that such plans are perceived throughout Europe.
And there is a big auxiliary readiness!.
Please, help the street animals of Romania with your signature.
If you are in the doubt whether you sign, we ask you to watch the videos (ATTENTION!!! VERY CRUDE VIDEOS AND PICTURES) from "Protecta di trepturile animalelor".
