End Romanias Government abuse of public funds
URGENT - URGENT - CHECK OUR PETITION UPDATE - IT HAS COME TO LIGHT THAT THIS COULD BE A CASE OF THE ROMANIAN GOVERNMENT USING THE STRAYS TO COVER UP AN INFANTS ATTACK BY A PEDOPHILE AND CHILD MURDERER TO GET THAT VOTE TO SLAUGHTER THE STRAYS...HOW LOW WILL THE ROMANIAN GOVERNMENT SINK TO GET THAT VOTE?
NEW FOOTAGE BY JOURNALISTS FOLLOWING THE ROUTE THE 4 YEAR OLD WOULD HAVE HAD TO TAKE TO GET TO WHERE HIS BODY WAS FOUND...A ROUTE BY THE GRANDMOTHERS STATEMENT WOULD HAVE TOOK HIM 45 MINS TO MAKE ( SHE STATES OUT OF HER SIGHT FOR JUST 45 MINS)
YOU WILL SEE IN THE CLIP THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN AN IMPOSSIBLE TASK FOR A 4 YEAR OLD TO COMPLETE. PROVING THE COVER UP AND HOW ROMANIA'S GOVERNMENT WOULD RATHER PROTECT A PEDOPHILE AND CHILD MURDERER IF IT GIVES THEM THE EXCUSE TO MASSACRE THE DOGS AND MAKE SOME EASY MONEY.
THE WAR HAS BEGUN
A few days ago sadly a young child in a Romanian park and his brother were left unsupervised too long by their grandmother. The young children wandered off from the park and entered onto private land with an old building the dogs used as their shelter. Subsequently the boy called Ionut was attacked and killed by a stray dog and his brother ( according to police reports) was also bitten but was not fatal. We do not know what provoked the attack, or who was to blame for the attack. However despite the families great loss they themselves spoke out against the Romanian government not dealing with the stray problem effectively.
This most certainly was an awful thing to happen to any child, to any family. Across Europe we know this is a rare occurrence. However this single child's death has given the Romanian government the perfect excuse to declare war on the strays and line their vile pockets with public money, rather than initiating mass sterilisation programmes that are more cost effective, less on the public purse and has been proven the ONLY long term effective solution to decrease the stray numbers.
The Romanian government right now are cruelly catching every stray they can see in every town and village and horrifically battering, poisoning and stabbing them to death. Tiny puppies, pregnant bitches NONE are being spared the barbarity
BIG PROFITS FROM THE BLOOD OF THE STRAYS- THE REAL REASON BEHIND THE BARBARIC WAR
For every dog caught, killed, cremated the local dog pound invoices its local city hall on average 120 euros each dog, the city hall then take from the public purse (local tax payers) and sends a nice hefty cheque back to the dog catchers and city pound that are normally related in some form or another to the mayor of the city hall or the mayor is on the dog catchers payroll. Now do you see why they need public backing, why the scaremonger tactics?
They are not asking for the citizens permission to kill the dogs, they are asking the citizens if they can con them out of the taxes they pay the city halls!!!
THIS ENTIRE EXERCISE AND SCAREMONGER TACTICS IS A BLATANT MISUSE OF PUBLIC FUNDS, SOMETHING THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION CAN STOP AND INVESTIGATE
THE DELIBERATE INACCURACIES OF THE LATEST ROMANIAN GOVERNMENT WAR AGAINST STRAYS
The Romanian government states its strays are so very dangerous towards humans.
YET other European countries who have a higher rate of dog attacks, or lower Human population but higher dog attack ratio advocate sterilisation NOT BARBARIC AND UNFOUNDED MASSACRES.
This is because unlike Romania WE DO NOT use our domestic stray population to defraud our citizens.
Romanian Government lies:
LIES - Romanian stray dogs are dangerous and MUST be eradicated by all means necessary.
The Romanian government claim that their stray dogs are a terrible threat to public safety( using the death of a poor child to spur this war), so we compared recorded stray dog attacks in other European countries in comparison to Romania's. We then compared the human population of each of those countries in comparison to Romanias. After all if dogs are a threat to humans, we must take into account the human population in comparison to the attacks.
Germany Dog Attacks 303.031 – Human Population 82,302,465
Italy Dog Attacks 213,446 - Human Population 60,550,848
UK Dog Attacks 221,583 - Human Population 62,035,570
France Dog Attacks 222,147 - Human Population 62,787,427
Ukraine Dog Attacks 175,485 - Human Population 45,448,329
Spain Dog Attacks 148,091 - Human Population 46,076,989
Romania Dog Attacks 82,189 - Human Population 21,486,371
Belgium Dog Attacks 38,045 - Human Population 10,712,066
Austria Dog Attacks 30,054 - Human Population 8,393,644
This is what the Stats prove:
FACT - Despite having a higher amount of strays on the streets in comparison to some other European countries , they have a lower year on year rate of dog attacks to the majority of other EU countries.
FACT – You are no more likely to be attacked by a dog in other European countries who have less strays on the street than you are by a stray street dog in Romania.
FACT - You more likely to be attacked by a owned pet dog in Germany, UK or Italy than you are from a feral street dog in Romania
The Romanian Government are lying not just to its own people but to the rest of Europe.
This cruelty MUST STOP NOW
This massacre MUST STOP NOW
This Fraud MUST STOP NOW
This lies MUST STOP NOW
The European commission already have a petition from (Kendra Pinder) Action Aid for Animals on the table that was presented last year that is still open, warranting an investigation into Romanian Governments misuse of public funds they need to action this immediately. Time and again Action Aid for Animals and other such charities warn the European Parliament of this disgraceful and blatant dishonesty, yet nothing is done to stop this by the EU, even though it is within their remit to do so.
The European commission MUST ACT NOW and demand a stop to this massacre pending a full investigation into the basis of this war on strays. This is NOT about controlling the population of domestic strays, this is a cover to commit fraud of their own countries citizens taxes on a mass scale by the Romanian Government.
ACT NOW – BE THE VOICE OF THE VOICELESS AND HELP US END THIS BARBARIC WAR AND STOP THE ROMANIAN GOVERNMENT FROM PROFITING FROM ITS OWN PEOPLE AT THE EXPENSE OF THE STRAYS.
Please also consider visiting our charities Red Alert page where you will find various contacts and other actions that truly could make the difference to this war.

We the undersigned do demand that Romania's government must NOT be allowed to yet again use the stray dogs to misuse public funds. The death of a the child in Romania is indeed a terrible thing to happen. However as official stats from around Europe prove that without doubt that whilst Romania has one of the highest population of street dogs the attacks from dogs are one of the lowest. You are more likely to be attacked by a pet dog in Germany than you are from a stray dog on the streets of Romania.
The Romanian governments latest scaremonger attempts of its citizens is NOT to decrease the stray population for its own safety, but to misuse public funds by claiming for the thousands of animals that will be wrongfully killed by public shelters and the dog catchers , who in turn will claim monies for each corpse which will be paid from the public purse.
The stats from across Europe on dog attacks in comparison to Human population prove beyond any doubt that this latest attempt by Romania to commit mass genocide of its strays is purely a profit making scheme and abhorrent misuse of public funds.
If the Romanian government were truly being honest and wanted to decrease the strays they would apply more cost effective methods such as catch, neuter and return sterilisation programmes rather than the more expensive and horrifically cruel massacres that are happening right now in Romania.
To be and remain an EU Member state you must prove and maintain public funds and show you are acting in your citizens best interests. This is not the case with Romania.
We European citizens demand that Romania stops this illegal massacre and misuse of public funds and that the European Commission/Union intervene and command an immediate end to the current massacre of the strays pending an EU investigation.
