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.

Sincerely.

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

Potpisnici se pridruzuju prijavi Udruzenja za sprjecavanje okrutnosti i zastitu zivotinja iz Banovica i traze da se ovakvo nedjelo kazni te da kaznjavanje takodje ima i preventivnu mjeru kako bi iskorijenili ovakve slucajeve okrutnosti.

The petition signers support complaint made by the Association for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Banovici and seek to punish such wrongdoing, and that punishment also has a preventive measure to weed out such cases of cruelty.

Predmet : Prijava protiv Kenana Demirovića iz Čubrića (MZ Podgorje), općina Banovići

Poštovani,
Ovim putem ulažemo prijavu protiv Kenana Demirovića iz Čubrića (MZ Podgorje), općina Banovići, koji je, kako se vidi na fotografiji u prilogu) ubio psa lutalicu i sa istim se slikao. Pas je ubijen, kako se vidi na jako brutalan način.
Ova fotografija je nađena na facebook profilu imenovanog.
Fotografija je napravljena 05.12.2010.godine.
Ubijanja pasa je u suprotnosti sa članom 4. Zakona o zaštiti i dobrobiti životinja (Broj Službenog glasnika BiH: 25/09) te zahtijevamo da provedete istragu i utvrdite činjenično stanje te protiv pomenutog lica pokrenete zakonsku proceduru u skladu sa Zakonom o zaštiti i dobrobiti životinja (Broj Službenog glasnika BiH: 25/09) .
Pored navedenog, tražimo da ispitate da li ima još umješanih lica u ovim nezakonitim radnjama te da i protiv tih lica ukoliko su uradile nezakonitosti pokrenete zakonsku proceduru.
Koliko smo upoznati, ni jedna Vaša policijska patrola još nije u svom izvještaju navela kršenje Zakona o zaštiti i dobrobiti životinja (Broj Službenog glasnika BiH: 25/09), iako su često svjedoci zlostavljanja i ubijanja životinja što je za nas nepojmljivo jer je policija koja je dužna reagovati na svaku nezakonitost.
Molimo Vas još jednom da poduzmete aktivnosti da se ovo brutalno ubijanje konacno zaustavi i protiv odgovornih pokrenete zakonsku proceduru.

S poštovanjem.
