New proposed legislation in Romania about the street dogs


Mar 11, 2012 — On the national newspaper Evenimentul Zilei it was an article about what Romanian authorities propose to be the new law for street dogs of Romania.
This new proposal include two options: dogs to be catch and placed into shelters for the rest of their lives/until being adopted or to be put to sleep. Under no circumstances the dogs will not be sterilized and returned on the territory.Plus, the local non-profit organizations are asked to contribute, including financially, for solving the street dogs overpopulation problems. Not only to be presented on talk shows.The Romanian Constitutional Court is against releasing dogs back on the territory because it is against a fundamental human right which gives a person the right to have a family and a private life.
Sterilize and return is not a solution accepted apparently by the new law specifications.
