EU PARLIAMENT : INVESTIGATE WHAT HAPPENED TO THE PUBLIC FUNDS DESIGNATED FOR SPAY/NEUTER PROGRAMME FOR STRAY DOGS IN ROMANIA
In connection with the barbaric killing of homeless dogs in Romania, we the European Community and worldwide community demand IMMEDIATE intervention from the European parliament.
Such inhumane, cruel methods applied to neutralise the problem of stray dogs should have no place in the European Union.
Remaining silent on the subject, the Commissioners, MEPs and civil servants employed in Brussels undermine the credibility and effectiveness of dealing with such problems within the European Community.
Public funds were allocated to local authorities in Romania for humane solutions to the stray dog problem including spay/neuter programs but these were never implemented. The money disappeared and animals are dealt with in a most cruel way instead and euthanised in a completely inhumane manner. The reports in the Romanian media and true eye witnesses accounts state these cheap and effective euthanasia methods including beating to death, clubbing, injecting paint thinner or other cheap toxin into the lungs, burning, drowning and poisoning with substances including antifreeze.
In the light of the evidence presented, WE DEMAND IMMEDIATE RESPONSE OF THE SUPREME AUTHORITY OF THE EUROPEAN UNION and as EU citizens we ask you to immediately investigate how the allocated funds were spent.
A killing programme will never be successful if Romania does not implement a spay/neuter programme. WE DEMAND AN IMMEDIATE REACTION TO THIS BARBARITY.
