The Smederevo authorities appear to be making up their own laws on animal welfare, including killing; rather than undertake the official stance as defined by the Constitutional Court.

SAMPLE LETTER

********

Pišem Vam kako bih izrazila duboku zabrinutost za životinje u Smederevu, a povodom vesti

SKUPŠTINA GRADA SMEDEREVA OZAKONILA JE EKSPERIMENTE NAD PSIMA I MAČKAMA LUTALICAMA
http://www.nadlanu.com/pocetna/info/vesti/Smederevo-ozakonilo-eksperimente-nad-zivotinjama.a-157589.295.html

http://serbiananimalsvoice.com/2012/12/04/serbia-unlawful-killing-of-animals-by-the-city-of-smederevo-please-take-action/

Dok se u svetu donose stroge norme koje ograničavaju eksperimente nad životinjama, Skupština grada Smedereva ozakonjuje zlostavljanje zivotinja! Zasto???

U Clanu 40, koji se tiče uhvaćenih pasa i mačaka lutalica, odnosno njihove sudbine nakon hvatanja se kaze: "Nakon isteka roka iz člana 35. i 38. ove Odluke, UHVAĆENI I ODUZETI PSI I MAČKE MOGU DA SE USTUPE NAUČNOISTRAŽIVACKIM I DRUGIM USTANOVAMA, pravnom ili fizičkom licu, uz naknadu troskova hvatanja, prevoza i cuvanja, uz prethodnu saglasnost veterinarskog inspektora. Psi i macke iz stava 3. ovog clana, pre ustupanja moraju da budu pregledani, vakcinisani, kastrirani, odnosno sterilisani i obelezeni na odgovarajuci nacin."

Naucnici su odavno izasli iz Mračnog Doba u kojem se zivotinje jos uvek muce u ime nauke. U svetu se danas koriste alternativne metode koje su mnogo preciznije, jeftinije i zahtevaju manje vremena.

Dr. Charles Mayo, osnivač Klinike Mayo, izjavio je sedeće, "Prezirem vivisekciju. Trebalo bi je barem staviti pod kontrolu. Ili još bolje, u potpunosti ukinuti. Ne poznajem nijedan napredak učinjen pomoću vivisekcije, nijedno naučno otkriće do kog se ne bi moglo doći bez takvog varvarstva i okrutnosti. Cela ta stvar je zla."

Clan 42. Zakona o dobrobiti zivotinja izricito kaze:
OGLED NAD ZIVOTINJAMA SE NE SME SPROVODITI U SLUCAJU: NAPUSTENIH ZIVOTINJA, ODNOSNO ZIVOTINJA IZ PRIHVATILISTA.

Molim Vas da postujete postojeci Zakon o dobrobiti zivotinja i da problem pasa i mačaka lutalica resavate na human nacin, tj. u skladu sa postojecim Zakonom.

S postovanjem

TRANSLATION IN ENGLISH

I am writing to express my deep concern for the animals in Smederevo, refers to the news

SMEDEREVO CITY GOVERNMENT LEGALIZED EXPERIMENTS ON STRAY DOGS AND CATS

http://www.nadlanu.com/pocetna/info/vesti/Smederevo-ozakonilo-eksperimente-nad-zivotinjama.a-157589.295.html

http://serbiananimalsvoice.com/2012/12/04/serbia-unlawful-killing-of-animals-by-the-city-of-smederevo-please-take-action/

While the world makes strict rules limiting experiments on animals, the City Government of Smederevo legalized animal cruelty! Why???

In Section 40, which concerns the captured stray dogs and cats, and their fate after catching it says:
"After the deadline referred to 35 and 38 of this Decision, CAUGHT AND SEIZED DOGS AND CATS CAN BE ASSIGNED TO SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH AND OTHER INSTITUTIONS."
(Whole text in Serbian: "Nakon isteka roka iz člana 35. i 38. ove Odluke, UHVAĆENI I ODUZETI PSI I MAČKE MOGU DA SE USTUPE NAUČNOISTRAŽIVACKIM I DRUGIM USTANOVAMA, pravnom ili fizičkom licu, uz naknadu troskova hvatanja, prevoza i cuvanja, uz prethodnu saglasnost veterinarskog inspektora. Psi i macke iz stava 3. ovog clana, pre ustupanja moraju da budu pregledani, vakcinisani, kastrirani, odnosno sterilisani i obelezeni na odgovarajuci nacin.")

Scientists are long time out of the Dark Ages where animals are tortured in the name of science. In today world existing alternative methods which are more accurate and less expensive.

Dr. Charles Mayo, founder of the Mayo Clinic, said, "I abhor vivisection. It should at least be curbed. Better, it should be abolished. I know of no achievement through vivisection, no scientific discovery, that could not have been obtained without such barbarism and cruelty. The whole thing is evil."

Article 42 of the Serbian Animal Welfare Low explicitly states:
THE EXPERIMENT OF THE ANIMAL SHOULD NOT BE IMPLEMENTED IN THE CASE OF: ABANDONED ANIMALS AND ANIMALS FROM SHELTERS.
(Text in Serbian: OGLED NAD ZIVOTINJAMA SE NE SME SPROVODITI U SLUCAJU: NAPUSTENIH ZIVOTINJA, ODNOSNO ZIVOTINJA IZ PRIHVATILISTA.

Please respect the Animal Welfare Low. The problem of stray dogs and cats you must solve in humane way and in accordance with this Law.

Sincerely

Another Eastern European country that is contolled by sadistic and moronis officals, populated by ignorant and indifferent masses who have no compassion, no empathy and certainly no moral ethics whatsoever. These countries all have the same mind-set, that is to murder all stray animals in the most barbaric and brutal ways imaginable causing as much pain and suffering possible. Damn them all.

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.

Zahvaljujem vam na sugestiji. Greskom sluzbenika gradske uprave doslo je do usvajanja ove Odluke.
Brzo smo reagovali i tako ce se clan 40 Odluke o uslovima drzanja, postupanja i zastite domacih zivotinja izmeniti i sporne odredbe koje se odnose na naucno istrazivacki rad bice izbacene vec na sledecoj sednici Skupstine grada, koja ce se odrzati 17. decembra 2012. godine.

S postovanjem
Gradonacelnik grada Smedereva
Dr Jasna Avramovic

TRANSLATION IN ENGLISH

Honorable

Thank you for your suggestion. The City government officials by mistake adopted this Decision.
We reacted quickly and Section 40 of the Decision about the housing conditions, treatment and protection of domestic animals, and arguable decree related to the scientific research will be abolish at the next conference of the City Parliament, which will be held on 17 December 2012.

Sincerely
The Mayor of Smederevo
