Following an incident in which a man had been attacked by stray dogs, the capital-city of Sofia will take new measures to deal with the strays of the city.
During the press conference held April 5, 2012, the Minister of Agriculture, Miroslav Naydenov, together with the Mayor of Sofia, Yordanka Fandakova, have announced their future anti-stray-policy.
While this new legislation will be the subject of further debates during their National Assembly to be held April 8, 2012, their decision to let a veterinarian judge and decide if the captured animal should be deemed aggressive or not - and consequently also be euthanized or not - without the presence of a local NGO, must be protested immediately at the strongest.
