Justice for brutally killed dog, Banovici, Bosnia & Herzegovina

    1. Petition by

      NOA Denmark

A boy strangled a stray dog, posed in front of the camera and than uploaded the picture on his Facebook profile. This is not a unique case of adolescent animal cruelty in Bosnia & Herzegovina that was exposed on the Facebook but this is done in a such a brutal way that provoked many animal activists in Bosnia and Europe. The local animal protection society filed a complaint against the boy and all that were involved to the police. We are all afraid that this is not enough and we need international pressure to punish that boys parents, as he is probably underaged. His name is in the complaint, Kenan Demirovic.

The letter of complaint in English (translation of the original complaint made by the local animal society):

Dear Sirs,

We want to to file a complaint against Kenan Demirovic from Cubrici (MZ Podgorje) Banovići municipality, which, (as shown in the photo attached) killed a stray dog. The dog was killed, as it can be seen in a very brutal way.

This photograph was found on Kenan's facebook profile and was made on December 5th 2010.

Killing dogs is contrary to Article 4 of the Law on Animal Protection and Welfare (Official Gazette BiH No.: 25/09), and we demand investigation to determine the facts and start the legal proceedings in accordance with the Law on Animal Protection and Welfare (Official Gazette BiH No.: 25/09 ).

In addition, we seek to examine whether there are more persons involved in these illegal activities and start ledal proceedings against such persons if they have done illegal acts.

As far as we know, none of your police patrols is not yet in its report cited violations of the Animal Protection and Welfare (Official Gazette BiH No.: 25/09), although they often witnessed torture and killing of animals as for us because it is inconceivable that the police shall respond to any illegality.

Please we ask you once again to take action to have this brutal killing finally stopped, and run legal proceedings against those responsible.


President of the Association for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animal Protection Banovići BiH

      This is a shameful, unthinkable act and degrades us all as human beings. It is our duty to look after the earth and all sentient beings. It is totally unacceptable that such unwarranted cruelty to a defenceless and vulnerable animal can happen without without stringent measures being taken against the perpetrator. If not, what message is being given to other people and , in fact to this person.
