Published on 9 Apr 2013 This report is property of TV7 I am just sharing it. Mob against doctor Litov who helped stray dogs. In short this is a common case in Bulgaria. People from the village Selcha in Bulgaria demand that this man who happens to be a doctor to leave their village. They want that, because they don't approve the fact that he saved 3 stray dogs, took care of them and now they live with him in this house, where his workplace is also located. One of the mobsters trespassed into the doctor's house and attacked Borko - one of the dogs he saved and adopted, which happens to be crippled and can't move its back legs. This deed is against the laws of animal welfare in the country. You may take action by signing this petition and help dr. Litov and his dogs: http://www.change.org/petitions/justi...

This petition was started by Occupy for Animals on 5th April, 2013 - for further information on the background of this petition, please visit: http://www.occupyforanimals.org/bulgaria--lynch-mob-enters-private-property-and-beats-defenseless-crippled-doggy-while-tv-reporters-film-the-scene-and-the-police-does-nothing.html

ABOUT THIS PETITION:

Most of you know the sad story of little Borko and his family by now. For those who are not familiar with the tragic case, we would like to sum it up briefly:

Dr Litov is the local doctor of the village Selcha (Селча), municipality of Devin, district of Smolyan in southern Bulgaria.

The doctor is being vilified in his village because he helps the poor strays like little Borko that you see in the added picture. A year this May, Borko was beaten so badly that his spine was broken and he was taken in by the kind doctor.

On the 12th of March, a mob was sent to Dr Litov's home, accompanied by a film crew. Little Borko was attacked and beaten again in his own garden.

See video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ZCnRYYxzaro

Fortunately, little Borko didn't suffer any serious injuries, no broken bones or so... he is "only" traumatized, and so is the entire family.

Not only is it socially acceptable in Bulgaria for this lynch mob to trespass onto Doctor Litov’s property and brutally beat his disabled family dog publicly, in full view of TV cameras, the police are not even interested in prosecuting the perpetrators, refusing to attend the property when called.

This lynch mob and the media staged this shameful act in order to force Dr. Litov out of his home and work, only because he is helping the strays in the village, where there is no vet and no shelter. The news article in no way criticized the mob for their actions, they only blamed Dr Litov for helping strays.

See article published by TV7: http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=bg&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=fr&ie=UTF-8&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fbulgaria.tv7.bg%2Fnews%2F9670202.html

And just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse... Not only have the municipality condoned the lynch mob mentality of the protesters and TV7 Film crew; glorifying themselves on national television. Now, they are rubbing salt into the wound by serving Dr Litov and his family an eviction notice.

One has to ask, what the actual agenda here is from the municipality, because as far as we’re concerned this stinks of nepotism and corruption on a grand scale.

But who are these horrible people who have terrorized the doctor and beaten little Borko?

The man seen beating Borko is said to be Borian Dafinov Kirov, and the TV-reporters who accompanied the crazy mob and filmed the ordeal without intervening belong to:

TV 7 - Bul. James Baucher 100 Sofia - Bulgaria

In November 2012, Alegro Capital, a London-based corporate finance advisory firm, acquired Bulgarian television TV7 for an undisclosed sum - see: http://www.novinite.com/view_news.php?id=145309

We have addressed this petition to:

Mr Patrick Martin Head of Media, Entertainment and Internet Alegro Capital 16th Floor 125 Old Broad Street London EC2N 1AR United Kingdom E-mail: info@alegrocapital.com Telephone: +44 (0) 20 7726 3100 Fax: +44 (0) 20 3137 0037

because we believe that TV7 have been complicit in this tragedy, and we believe it is only just and fair that they now assist in sorting this situation out to a happy conclusion.

Please help us to sort this out to a happy conclusion for everyone. Please speak up for little Borko and his daddy, Dr Litov, by signing our petition.

Dear Mr Martin,
following recent events with regards to the Lynch Mob that persecuted Dr Litov and his 3 dogs in Selcha, Bulgaria, accompanied and filmed by the TV-crew of your newly acquired Bulgarian TV-station, TV7, which prompted international outcry, over 37,000 people have now signed the “Justice for Disabled Borko”...
SUBJECT: Disabled Borko's Story Part II: TV7, Broadcast the Truth!
Dear Mr Martin,
following recent events with regards to the Lynch Mob that persecuted Dr Litov and his 3 dogs in Selcha, Bulgaria, accompanied and filmed by the TV-crew of your newly acquired Bulgarian TV-station, TV7, which prompted international outcry, over 37,000 people have now signed the “Justice for Disabled Borko” petition with the story having reached hundreds of thousands more via the internet and growing.
Dr. Litov has now gained 6 figure support worldwide, and much within Bulgaria. Contact has been made to the Bulgarian President's Office as well as the offices of José Manuel Barroso, the President of the European Commission, the European Court of Human Rights, and many others, with the international condemnation now reaching such high level places as UK Government Officials, International Media, several celebrities and other European Commission Members.
We thought we should therefore inform you of recent events which have now taken a more sinister turn where, not only the doctor's livelihood is at risk, yet also serious threats to both his and his animals' lives. The local municipality have sent him an eviction notice which on top of all the mob threats, now leaves him and the animals homeless.
As TV7 were eager to have a good story about the doctor, his 3 dogs and the protesters that don't like him helping the strays, we ask that you now also film and broadcast "Part II" of the story: That the doctor has been the victim of a “Witch Hunt” purely because he helps the strays on the street, and as a result he is now to be evicted from his home, meaning he will lose his livelihood, and doesn't know how to feed his family, nor where he will go.
Will you broadcast that, too?
We believe that TV7 have been complicit in this tragedy, and we believe it is only just and fair that you now assist in sorting this situation out to a happy conclusion. We WILL win this fight, and TV7 can either be part of the solution for this story, or part of the problem.
We trust you will do the right thing.

Sincerely, [Your name]

“Animals don’t feel pain, they’re vermin … “ is just one of the things that people in Bulgaria have been told all their lives and both the state as well as the media are actively encouriging cruelty and hatred towards stray animals. Indeed, caring for companian animals is so new in Bulgaria that many vets there so far lack the necessary skills to treat them.
How do we know all this? – Well, we talked to a courageous lady who is determined to make a difference for animals in Eastern Europe:
Michelle Jones is co-founder of the K9 Rescue international rescue charity focused on making a difference to the treatment of dogs in Eastern Europe. After moving to Bulgaria in 2005, she soon became heavily involved in rescuing sick and injured street dogs and puppies, re-homing them both locally in Bulgaria and elsewhere in Europe and beyond. She then decided to form K9 Rescue in 2012 to focus on her passion of empowering local independent rescuers.
