    1. Update on the stray dogs' issue in Sarajevo, Bosnia

      Posted on September 16, 2014

      The Government of Canton Sarajevo has issued a decision ruling that the dog catching service of P. E. “Rad” be formed on 11th September, 2014, with the aim of removing aggressive, ill and elderly strays from the streets of Sarajevo, and “euthanising” them.

      This situation is illegal, it is against the constitution, it is a criminal offence.
