Same here, no FB. I have signed petitions re: Borko..and the abuse of this furbaby though. Thank you, Cher for this.

Signed, shared on Face book and tweeter. I am sad and horrified that people behave so badly. What has the doctor done to incur such wrath? Saved a beaten dog from certain death. Shame on those Bulgarians that took part in this. Shame on a nation that does not demand immediate arrests and long prison sentences.

Breaking and entering, B&E on private property, endangering the life and threats to well being of Dr Litov, violence against an animal, extreme abuse of an animal, endangering the public safety, those are few charges to get them started.

TY Cher. I have been following Borko and Dr. Litov's story for some time now. It has caught the attention of many Care2ers. I have already signed 3 petitions for him and written e-mails to Bulgarian officials, even the Bulgarian consolate in Canada. I am hoping that the coverage and petitions will help little Borko and other strays in that country. Desanka and Sun Ah have been good at keeping updates coming in on Care2 too. I will keep on signing whatever comes forward for this sweet dog and Dr. Litov.

LETS GET THIS STORY ON CNN NEWS! -TAKE ACTION!!! Justice for Disabled Borko! Punish the man who savagely beat him in his own home!

Not a FB member. The back story:

"To: President of Bulgaria, Rosen Plevneliev. Prime Minister of Bulgaria, Marin Raykov. Secretary General of Bulgaria, Liliya Ivanova

We the undersigned demand Justice for Borko.

Borko is a little crippled dog that lives in the village of Selcha (Селча), Municipality of Devin, District of Smolyan in Southern Bulgaria.

In May 2012 Borko was beaten so badly that his spine was broken.

Borko was given a home by a kind Bulgarian Doctor who is now being persecuted for helping stray animals like Borko.

Now recently in 2013 a mob of people came to Borko's house (with a film crew) and videotaped a man attacking and beating Borko in his own back yard.

The man seen beating Borko is said to be a Borian Dafinov Kirov.

Please watch this video link:
You Tube version:

The Bulgarian Government need to investigate and take action on ALL parties involved in this disgraceful act of animal cruelty toward a crippled dog.

We demand that the Bulgarian Government starts to take cruelty to animals seriously and start enforcing the Law against these acts of cruelty.

We want to see better protection for innocent animals and their owners from being persecuted and removed from their homes.

The eyes of the WORLD are upon you and will be watching to see that the Government take action here!"
