I think everyone needs to know what is going on in Serbia!
This is how Serbs have "fun" for Christmas!
The abuse of thise unfortunate horses was taking place in the village Milavac. Serbian activists made a written charge to the Ministry of Agriculture and to the Ministry of Internal Policing. This crime is punishable by Article 269 of the Criminal Code of Serbia and, as evidence of the crime, the video will be presented to the police.

I write regarding the following video, which I am informed, was filmed in Milavac village, Serbia.
Video link: http://youtu.be/vYF06B8tRGo
Please undertake full investigation to ensure that all those involved in this abuse of animals are prosecuted under Article 269 of the Criminal Code of Serbia.
This type of animal abuse does not do your country any good regarding its global audience. This is also not a good advertisement for Serbia and its wish to become a future member of the EU.
I may consider that is necessary to provide this video footage to the EU Parliament / Commission for their review.
You must act now to prevent this kind of event ever taking place again in the future.
