Subject: Bosnia-Herzegovina, Dec. 10
Deputies of the House of People.
 
Sir, Madam:
We received very sad news that Bosnia and Herzegovina took a huge step backwards in terms of civilized, humane, modern animal welfare views!
On the 58th session, the House of Representatives adopted a draft law on amendments to the Animal Protection and Welfare Act, proposed by Nermina Zaimovic-Uzunovic, which legalizes 'euthanasia' (killing) of all homeless animals if they are not adopted within 15 days after their stay in a shelter.
 
The 2009, the Law on Animal Protection and Welfare was a progressive piece of legislation that,  if properly enforced would have seen a huge reduction in the number of abandoned dogs in the streets in the most humane manner possible.
 
In addition, it's important to note that deliberate animal abuse is rife in Bosnia, and many international animal welfare organizations cite Bosnia as the country with the most instances of horrific animal cruelty.
With these changes to the Animal Protection and Welfare Law, you certainly send out the message that cruelly killing dogs and cats is acceptable in all circumstances in BiH.
 
We hope that the European Commission and the Parliament will discuss this matter with their Bosnia and Herzegovina counterparts.
The EU has among the world’s highest standards of animal welfare and if Bosnia and Herzegovina wish to join EU, it must take animal welfare seriously.
 
While the world is waiting for the final decision of the House of People, you can still create a solution to this problem through better implementation of the current law and humane stray dog population control (Trap-Neuter-Return program, the only effective method).
 
Please stop this amendment and start building a better future for the people and dogs of Bosnia.
 
Sincerely,

 
Visibility: Everyone
