Stop the mass killing of strays in the Ukraine for the Football Euro 2012

      ., Germany

We the undersigned are calling all government representatives to influence the situation in Kharkov and the whole country of the Ukraine. Stop the mass killing of dogs and cats in general and in preparation for the UEFA European Football Championship 2012!!!

Full official statistics are hard to come by, but figures and estimates provided to The Associated Press by authorities in the Euro 2012 host cities of Kiev, Donetsk, Kharkiv and Lviv show more than 20,000 dogs have been brutally killed (shot, poisoned or burned while still alive!!) over the past year. Animal protection groups believe the number is far higher!!
"It's a slaughterhouse," said Asya Serpinska, head of the Ukrainian Association of Animal Protection Organizations.

The Ukraine does not have any programs on stray animals number decreasing, no educating people about neutering their pets, no municipal shelter for stray animals!! All this leads to thousands of animals appearing at the streets and the absence of home pets breeding control entails increase of strays number!!

Activists in Donetsk and Kharkiv say stray dogs are also routinely killed by blowgun syringes loaded with dithylinum, a substance banned in Ukraine and the West for animal euthanasia. It paralyzes the respiratory system, so the dog dies slowly of asphyxiation, suffering for up to an hour.

"It's capture and kill," said John Ruane of Naturewatch, a British-based animal welfare group that monitors the situation in Ukraine. "It's just barbaric. !!"

These actions contradict European Animal rights Convention and any adequate humans moral principles. Besides it contradicts democratic societys principles and leaves a bloody stain on Ukraines reputation.

Please sign this Petition and share it with the world!! We need the support of all animal lovers worldwide! Let's fight against this barbarity on innocent animals!

YOU can do more: PLEASE sign as well to fight another crime against dogs! We need worldwide support:

      Bericht von Prinzessin Maja v. Hohenzollern!! Auf ihrer facebookseite steht : " Ich bin wieder aus der Ukraine zurück, ausführlicher Bericht folgt. Bitte glaubt nicht, dass das Töten der Hunde aufhört. Aufgrund unsere Proteste und unseres Drucks haben Politiker und Veranstalter große Angst, dass die EM2012 in die Hose geht, daher gab es nun die Aussage, des urkainischen Umweltministers, "er habe die Bürgermeister angewiesen mit dem Töten aufzuhören und Tierheime zu bauen".

      Das... ist eine rein politische Ausage um die Wogen zu glätten, Prosteste zu stoppen, wirtschaftliche Interessen zu wahren. Das hat keine Bedeutung, keine rechtliche Bindung!Die Realltiät sieht anders aus. Das Tierheim in Kiew liegt 80 Km außerhalb der Stadt... dort werden die Tiere nicht adpotiert sondern nach einer Zeit getötet. Schön weit weg von der Stadt, wo es keiner merkt. Der "Bau von Tierheimen" dieser Art hilft den Hunden sicher nicht. Es zeigt nur, dass wir sie alle mit unserem öffentlichen Prostest, Demos!

    9. Letter to DFB / Deutsche Fußball Bund

      Petition Organizer

      At least the German Footballs Association replied, here is what they said:

      "Vielen Dank für Ihr Schreiben. Der Deutsche Fußball-Bund (DFB) und sein Präsident Dr. Theo Zwanziger sind bereits vor einiger Zeit auf die von Ihnen angesprochene Problematik hingewiesen worden. Daraufhin haben wir diesen Vorgang an die UEFA, den Ausrichter der EURO 2012, weitergeleitet. Die UEFA hat zugesichert, sich dieser Sache anzunehmen. Dies ist auch bereits angelaufen, wie Sie beispielsweise in der aktuellen Berichterstattung unabhängiger Medien nachlesen können – ebenso wie die Statements mehrerer Nationalspieler zu diesem Thema.

      Bitte haben Sie Verständnis dafür, dass der DFB derzeit nicht mehr zu dieser Angelegenheit sagen kann. Gerne können Sie sich auch direkt an die UEFA"
