Romania - Protest Letter, Petitions & Polls


by Carmen ARSENE - In September 2, in Romania, a child was killed by dogs. Too little mentioned, the 4 year old child was left too long unsupervised by his grandmother, so he came from a park, far away, on a private fenced land, where dogs were. All televisions and newspapers are CONTINUOUSLY talking about this tragedy. They tell stories, interview people who feel disturbed by dogs, show false statistics, distort reality, and have inflamed the entire population. On the other hand, despite the pain, father and grandfather of the child were talking about the dogs like "they are also poor beings" and as such they don’t consider the dogs to be guilty but condemn the authorities because they did nothing for the correct management.
AUTHORITIES USE THIS TRAGEDY CLAIMING THE KILLING OF ALL DOGS! Yesterday, the Romanian President, Traian Basescu, urged the Government to elaborate an emergency ordinance that allows all dogs to be killed. In parallel, President of the Chamber of Deputies asks for urgent draft legislation providing for killing dogs.
For 20 years in Romania the dogs were tortured, captured and taken to “shelters”- extermination camps, where if they did not die of hunger and thirst they were killed by cruel methods. Hundreds of thousands of dogs died in the camps of the City halls, however huge amounts of tens of millions of Euros are „spent” for „managing” the stray dogs. The problem was not solved in the street but even got worse because nowhere in the world the mass killing was a solution.
Although it has been shown both by the experience of other countries and own (Oradea) that sterilization of stray dogs is the only solution for the disappearance of stray dogs, the Romanian authorities have totally ignored it, insisting on a failure method! Why? Because killing dogs in Romania has became an industry, tens of millions of Euros "spent" for managing dogs actually went into the pockets of those involved. Killing does not solve the problem so in the street will always be dogs so the authorities will have permanent reasons for "spending"of public money.
The next week will be discussed the KILLING DOGS PROJECT!

Subject: STOP mass killing dogs! Adopt masssterilization!

For the attention of the Romanian authorities:

We regret the tragedy of the child killed by dogs. Such dramas should not repeat. But if you insist in applying the same methods of dog mass murder that has been conducted in Romania for 20years and that has not resolved the problem in the streets, this risk will remain permanent.

We do not understand the interests of the Romanian authorities to continue orimplement again a method that has proven over the world to be failed,expensive, but as well immoral, shameful.

We do not understand why, despite all the evidence:
  • the benefits of dog sterilization
  • the results obtained in Oradea, where, by the Sterilization and Return program, the number of stray dogs decreased from 5000 to 300
  • the outcomes of the World Health Organization’s study (undertaken between 1981 and 1988) concluding that “the euthanasia or incarceration programs which are both inefficient and expensive”
  • the experiences of other countries that, after years of mass murder without effect, implemented mass sterilization laws having noticeable effects,
  • you do not accept to implement the only solution for managing the dogs, that is the sterilization and return of the gentle and healthy stray dogs, compulsorily accompanied by the sterilization of dogs with owners that are the main source of street dogs by mass abandoning.
Approximately 5 million puppies are born in Romania in rural areas every year, some of them being killed by their owners and the others being abandoned in the street. So long as the dogs with owners will not be sterilized, through coherent programs, the streets will never be free of dogs.

We also remind you:
  • the Constitutional Court of Romania decided (Decision 1/2012) that euthanasia is ILLEGAL as a stray dogs management method until all other solutions have been applied properly, uniformly and with responsibility by local authorities
  • The Lisbon Treaty (art. 13, TFEU) states that the “animals are sentient beings”
  •  the European Parliament Resolution of 4 July 2012 on the establishment of an EU legal framework for the protection of pets and stray animals ( 2012/2670 (RSP )

Romania is already known by animal cruelty.
Please, be advised that if the killing of dogs starts, we will show to the entire world the reality of the dog camps, we will notify worldwide about the financial interests behind the business of killing dogs, we will withdraw any support that we have given so far to your country, we will boycott Romanian products and tourism, as no one will want to associate with a corrupt, cruel and immoral country.

    In the link "If tomorrow, as the referendum, you vote for euthanasia of stray dogs?" It says to vote "NU", but in the link the question is not the same!!!
    Please correct it, that are a lot of people that voted wrong already..........
    The question is: would you adopt a stray dog?
    The answer to help animals is "Da, l-as adopta permanent" (permanent adoption of a stray dog).

    People are answering No to adoption.... please correct it quickly!

    1. Thanks, I will correct it. However, this blog is from September 8 and the referendum question was different than the one from now. Still, I think people vote NU because of their perception of the stray dogs problem :(

  7. All petitions sigend, polls voted and letter sent. Let´s pray for this to work!!! Thank you.
