Bosnia and Herzegovina: Start Implementing Animal Protection Law


According to information we have received from activists in Sarajevo, we learned that on October 5, 2013 the Bosnian Government will be making changes in the Animal Protection Law. Based on our experience, this type of modifications doesn’t usually do any good for the animals. Government has already tried to do something similar a few months ago by proposing euthanasia of stray animals after only 15 days of their stay in the city pounds. Fortunately, this decision was never accepted and we want it to stay that way - permanently.

Pressure from the people and the Bosnian Government for this problem to be solved on the most brutal way is rising each day and is probably stimulated by the Romanian Government’s decision to kill all their stray dogs. We must stress out the information that Bosnian Government has never implemented their Animal Protection Law from 2009. That is why we need to keep our pressure on them to start doing their job properly and stop the needless suffering of Bosnian street cats and dogs.
