Genocide of Romanian Stray Dogs: VOTE to Ban the Slaughter of 40,000-65,000 Stray Dogs

Romanian lawmakers on Tuesday, September 10, 2013 voted overwhelmingly for a law allowing stray dogs to be put down after a four-year-old boy was mauled to death by a pack of strays last week.
The injury of the child after he was repeatedly bitten by stray dogs near a park in the capital prompted a national outcry.
Between 40,000 and 65,000 stray dogs live on the streets of Bucharest, most of them fed and looked after by animal lovers.
Hundreds of animal-rights activists gathered outside parliament in Bucharest to urge lawmakers to vote against the move, saying they would prefer dogs were sterilized rather than killed.
People need to vote to ban the slaughter before the genocide of stray dogs starts.
Sterilization or TRP (trap, neuter, release) should be the number one priority of the Romanian government and the people, not the massacre of homeless dogs. Homeless animals just like homeless people are always mistreated and abused. Cruelty to those who are unwanted, abandoned, and neglected should be punished. We should stand up for the rights of those stray dogs because we are their voice.

“We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace.”
Albert Schweitzer

      Just because some evil bastards have the power to create a genocide... it doesn't mean it's smart or good. Those poor dogs deserve a better live. FUCK YOU ROMANIA!

      Yes, Sterilization should be a #1 choice for their government and the people. Then there would be less people to kill the animals that have no choice but to live on the streets because of their bad laws! They killed dogs before this even happened!
