Very disturbing news from Serbia's Forgotten Paws!
The notorious public shelter "Naš dom" in Požega has admitted on TV B92 that last year they euthansed 1280 dogs out of 1350 that captured and they also released a document giving their estimates for this year. They will aim to catch 1500 dogs out of which 1300 will be euthanised.
These dogs are not humanly euthanised. In the past washing up liquid has been injected into dogs which then suffered for hours and died a slow agonizing death. No one is allowed access to this pound, so we can only imagine the horrors the dogs endure. No food, no water, dogs are eating each other...
Things have not changed. If anything, things have got worse - this government institution is now openly saying that they will kill 90% of dogs.
Also, the city of Niš has started rounding all homeless animals up to be euthanised after an attack on elderly woman by a pack of dogs.
You can see one "aggressive" dog looking as they take away her babies not daring to come any closer. Yes, they took the puppies away.
The dogcatchers have been watched by Serbian activists: 69 dogs are in the pound, which is not equipped to even have 20 dogs safely. The dogcatchers will be out getting more.
Finally, the video footage that appeared March 21 on social networks really angered citizens of Serbia: Tiny, friendly dog brutally caught with pliers by dogcatchers in Krusevac (graphic video!)
THIS IS ILLEGAL UNDER THE SERBIAN ANIMAL WELFARE LAW.
> Petition2: STOP THE ILLEGAL ACTIONS AND KILLING OF DOGS IN SERBIA
We're waiting patiently for Serbia to do the right thing!
