Slovenian animal lovers and advocates desperately need our help and support. This beautiful golden retriever had its leg chopped off by its owner to stop it from running away. This is the balkan mentality when it comes to animals, folks. I know this because I'm Serbian American/Canadian. There is a sinister "back woods" mentality that pervades towns and villages throughout the former Yugoslavia and surrounding countries and we need to fight HARD to turn it around. Please sign and share the petition above and keep up the fight for animals and animal welfare in the balkans. THEY NEED YOU AND YOUR VOICE!

This sex addict needs to be thrown in prison for the rest of his life. The A.S.P.C.A. and the Humane Society both have papers stating the correlation between animal and human abuse. I'll be if they did a little digging they will find he has some form of domestic violence against him. They Never Change.

This is not an isolated instance. Villagers and townsfolk throughout the Balkans have an extremely primitive mindset concerning animals. They are not, in many cases, treated as companionate beings with a spiritual and emotional dimension, but as pieces of equipment.

Let's face it: this is how animals are treated in rodeos here and in many "backwoods" communities across the "western" nations. Mexico has a less than stellar reputation when it comes to the treatment of animals as well. Many vacations I spent in Mexico involved feeding strays....driving through towns to get to the glitzy seaside resorts, I used to cringe at the disdain for animals living on the streets.

But I digress. All the more reason to keep up the FIGHT, and support animal lovers and advocates in countries like these who have less of a voice in the matter than we do. Compassion knows no borders.....pay it forward every chance you get.

Another Eastern European country with the mind-set of a plank of wood. These countries are hell-holes for all animals, nothing is treated with any compassion, any empathy and certainly no moral ethics whatsoever. These countries are definately still in the Middle Ages, still being run by savages and occupied by savages. I once asked a Romanian why his country committed such atrocities against their stray dogs, his answer was 'because we can, and because of that we will continue. Its none of your business' His answer said it all, they are ignorant, indifferent and uneducated, with no heart and no soul.

For every action there is a reaction.

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

Signed, It is heartbreaking to know humans -- who have so much to gain by caring for and living in harmony with animals -- can be so cruel to animals. Cruelty is not a human instinct. Cruelty, like hate, is a learned behavior (I do not excuse the behavior) the source of which is most often from a role model -- a parent or a peer. What most communities and their lawmakers don't recognize that animal cruelty is a serious public safety issue. Unchecked animal cruelty escalates to cruelty against other helpless creatures like children, the elderly, the homeless and gets worse from there. It's up to humans to stop cruelty. If cities, municipalities, counties, states enacted harsher laws, had better enforcement and serious community education, transformation away from cruelty for both animals and humans could be possible.

I just want to say how alarmed I'm getting at some of the comments I read on Care2. I like animals very much and am as sickened as anyone else by some of the inhumane things some people do to them. I absolutely believe that offenders should be dealt with properly to prevent repeat performances - and because animal abusers very often abuse people too. But what I'm finding just a little bit weird is how often I'm finding people offering to inflict the same sort of punishment on the offender. We're not mediaeval: what's happened to being the better - and nobler - person? And then there are comments which go on to say animals are angels and humanity is worthless. As a human being myself, I can't help but feel a little hurt by this! Can't we just agree that some human beings do terrible things (which must, of course, be dealt with) and very many more of us are worthwhile. The good work done here must be evidence of this.

So sorry, Michelle - hope you don't think I've hijacked this page, but I needed to let off steam...

So true Emma. There just seem to be more acts of abuse with the internet, but also due to no punishment. The sub humans feel they can get away with anything they please. I just heard that NY is letting up on small pot possession as a violation instead of misdemeanor. Now let's place severity where it will stop a precursory action from snowballing to murder as we've seen frequently.
