Signed in anger. What the hell is happening in Europe and it's hatred and cruelty towards all animals. Asia is by far the worst for animal atrocities but Europe is not far behind. There needs to be a complete overhaul of the Animal Cruelty laws in Europe. How does a continent with such beauty,culture,and heritage be home to such a surplus of sub-humans??? SHAMEFUL.

yvonne F, I believe this country is so poor: its lacks lot of basic things and sure has no good politics. There must be lack of education and people appear to've let go of compassion. This country needs help from outside. Even living in misery is something people get used to and just project frustration on others. But the problems get worse.

S & N. This photo refers to a round-up of the horses in the Danube Delta that took place, if memory serves me corretly, two years ago. Due to the public outcry and thanks to many petitions on this site and elsewhere it was stopped, but not before about 20 horses met a fateful end.

The Balkan countries are a medieval Living Hell for animals. It is time the EU took a firmer stance on enhancing & enforcingimal welfare laws in these countries. They really have no place in Europe until they pull themselves into the 21st century.

The e.u. dont have the balls to protect the animals that are suffering on a daily basis how can they when their mindset is just about money & they control of the citizens of europe to cover the light touch non regulation of banks & lending houses, are you aware that people are now been advised to have their pets put down because you cant pay your mortage to a bank that has been bailed out by the citizens.The president of Romania is Traian Basescu who should have a first hand knowledge of the suffering of the animals as he knows the suffering the citizens of Romania suffered at the hands of nicolae ceausece & his partner in crime his wife elena i have first hand experience of the sadness & pain that was inflected so Im at a loss to understand why a country that has an 86 per cent Christian population can be so cruel & indifferent.Romania is a major player in N.A.T.O. so pressure must be brought to their door also as they wont like the bad publicity.please indulge my long posting as I just do not understand what we as humans have come to.signed
