“Four days ago local people from the village Binježevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina) drove cuddly stray dog to the Veterinary Station “Hadžići” for sterilization. After four days, she was returned, but with cut open belly. Disturbing and shocking photographs serve as the evidence of the massacre committed against the unfortunate animal!”

Yesterday's news of unprofessionally performed sterilization of a stray dog and her tragic death has shocked activists around the world. Negligence, carelessness and irresponsibility from the staff of the vet station “Hadzici” is the main cause of this brutal act. Sterilization was carried out on the unfortunate dog called Siva who was operated despite the fact she recently gave birth to the puppies.

Siva was favorite among local people and she won’t be forgotten!

Please sign this petition and give your voice as something like this must not happen ever again. The letter will be handed to the Minister of Agriculture, Minister of Veterinary and vet station where this brutal act occurred.

Vet Station "Hadzici"
Yesterday's news of unprofessionally performed sterilization of a stray dog and her tragic death has shocked activists around the world. Negligence, carelessness and irresponsibility from the staff of the vet station “Hadzici” is the main cause of this brutal act. Sterilization was carried out on the unfortunate dog called Siva who was operated despite the fact she recently gave birth to the puppies.

Siva was favorite among local people and she won’t be forgotten!

1. We are seeking justice for Siva and the maximum punishment for the people responsible in this case.
2. We demand responsibility from the veterinarians who are paid to do their job properly.
3. We demand that sterilization and castration is continued across the whole state of Bosnia and Herzegovina because it is the only way to prevent the problem of unwanted litters (just one unsterilized male animal can impregnate dozens of females, creating dozens upon dozens of unwanted offspring, while one unaltered female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 puppies in only six years. In seven years, one female cat and her offspring can produce an incredible 370,000 kittens!)
4. We demand that this problem is solved on a more humane, efficient and cheaper way.
