Demand Justice for Hanging of Stray Dogs in Serbia ! PLEASE SIGN ! !

Animals  (tags: animals, AnimalWelfare, cruelty, dogs, protection, suffering, killing )

- 251 days ago -
Stray dogs are being hung from trees in Serbia until they die. It has become illegal but there are no updates available. No one knows if, that despite the laws, that this has stopped. I want a call for Serbian Animal Welfare to come together,

Oh my dear God. This is called Spring Cleaning. It is glaringly apparent that the time has come and come again for Universal Animal Protection Laws to be implemented and carried out. Animals are being slaughtered everywhere, every day ( even now as I type this) and the cruelties and deaths have reached epidemic proportions. I don't know how to stop this, but there must be more we can do than send petitions, make phone calls, etc. All countries must sign a pact to make animal welfare a priority; not a footnote. Done

Another god-forsaken Eastern European country that is on par with China and other Asian countries for its blatant and wanton cruelty. These countries are inhabited by brutal, disgusting masses with NO compassion, NO empathy, NO integrity and certainly NO moral ethics whatsoever. Shame on all of them, just a pity they can't be wiped off this earth.

Noted and signed with such sadness in my heart with this comment ~ What a shocking picture of these poor dogs hanging from their legs until they die,a slow torturous death.Do these evil humans have no hearts or souls,so cruel,so barbaric to treat animals in this way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Does nobody care who lives in the area so they could rescue these little dogs from the horror of a slow agonising death.Many tears for dogs in these Eastern European countries as they are hated so much,not their fault, if only these countries would SPEY/NEUTER all their dogs then innocent dogs would not be born to suffer!!!!!!!!!!!! Rest In Peace sweet little ones,my heart bleeds for them all.Such cruelty i find unbearable and upsetting,there is never a day goes by without suffering and cruelty to our precious animals and wildlife and not a day goes by without tears in my eyes.They never got the chance to have a loving home or to know kindness and happiness,forever in my thoughts and heart.Thankyou Cher.Liz Xx

I'm of Serbian heritage. There are many good kind-hearted souls in Serbia who love animals and deplore these crimes. Serbia's government is to blame. Like Romania and other Balkan nations the governments are corrupt and completely morally bankrupt. Serbia and other members of the former Yugoslavia run rampant with animal crimes and abuse. We must continue to expose these injustices and support the good citizens of these nations who are trying to enact change for animals, often under tremendous strain and duress. By the way I have seen the same done to dogs in Italy and we all know how galgos are treated in Spain. Cruelty recognizes no borders. We live in a world where much contempt still remains for our four legged and winged brothers and sisters.

HOWEVER - Please, PLEASE end the cruel thinking towards an entire country of people rather than the individual perpetrators and the government that lets it happen - Read Michelle S's comment. Don't generalize and remember that there are compassionate humans everywhere, we just don't always heard the good stories, just the awful ones.

Whoever did this is sadistic and needs to be caught and punished. They are not OK.
But there has to be the will to bring them to justice in these countries, and then adequate legislation.

And as much as we may want to say it is that eastern European country or that country, we need to clean up our acts at home too. Anyone who is a regular visitor to this site can attest to the fact that there is plenty that's not OK at all going on this side of the pond too.

Sadly, cruelty knows no boundaries, no socio economic level, it is everywhere all around us. We who care about animals must be ever vigilant.

There is absolutely NO excuse for this. To repeatedly hang a living being? Everyone can thank the media for this. When I was young, married people slept in 2 different beds. Now on TV all you see is unmarried with more than 2 doing everything "BUT" sleeping in the same bed. People have become desensitized to so many things, which has left many, very dangerous.tsk, tsk, tsk!
