Romanian Authorities Consider Mass Killing Of Stray Dogs (TAKE ACTION TODAY)

Though stray dogs have long been a problem in Romania, killing them is not the answer – instituting spay and neuter and adoption programs is the humane solution. Romanian parliament plans to finalize this draft law and the cull may be authorized shortly. Please take a few minutes of your day to send an email, sign a petition, or share this story so that the lives of thousands of innocent dogs may be saved. – Global Animal

BUCHAREST, Romania — A parliament committee has passed a draft law that says stray dogs can be killed.

Hundreds of animals rights’ activists gathered outside Parliament to protest the Tuesday decision. Protesters called for stray dogs to be sterilized, saying it is cheaper and more humane.

Romania has long had a problem with stray dogs, with an estimated 30,000 of them in the capital alone.

Authorities say 1,500 people were bitten in the capital during January and February.

In 2006, a Japanese tourist was killed by a stray dog, and earlier this year, a woman was mauled to death by a pack of dogs.

Please act by signing the petition (click the “Take Action” mouse) or sending an email written by Four Paws UK, an animal welfare group, to members of Parliament.
