protest against the massacre of dogs in Romania, war dogs in the middle of Europe.

Dear Mr. Schulz,

We turn in the names of many animal rights activists and deeply horrified citizens to you.
We hereby urge you to take action against the brutal mass killing of thousands of innocent stray animals in Romania immediately. We do not tolerate that the EU and as your President, continue to stand idly by in an unprecedented bloodbath in Europe! There is inconsistent, that you one hand on behalf of the EU, the “Nobel Peace Prize 2012 “received and then on the other hand a war against dogs and cats in Europe are let. animals a solid and worthy of protection component our society and should not be excluded from life, nor from the law or ethical-moral values ​​in Europe.

The situation in Romania has dramatically intensified a week ago as a young boy allegedly said to have been killed by stray dogs. The media played the event incredibly high, and sparked a targeted mass hysteria of the population, which began immediately all stray dogs in a brutal way to kill, to shoot or to light alive. A few days later, the government used this staged on 10.09.2013 mood to a euthanasia law that the killing of all stray animals in Romania provides to decide. Since an incredible slaughter of the animals takes place in Bucharest alone threatens 65 000 dogs, the cruel death. Animal welfare organizations have had to close their offices, animal rights activists fear for their lives. Due to many inconsistencies in the case, has now confirmed that the little boy was NOT killed by street dogs, but probably should have been the victim of a pedophile crime. , it gives the impression that this is a long-cherished plan staged perfidious from the Romanian government implemented was. The Romanian government of President Traian Basescu tried for years the “euthanasia law PL912” against the resistance of the animal rights activists assert. Between 2004 and 2009, an incredible 10 million street dogs were killed in Romania! In a figurative sense, this is a “genocide” in dogs as it has never existed before. There were almost as many dogs killed as the entire population of Romania! The brutality with which animals are killed is unprecedented. The dogs were hanged, living doused with acid, they were living with the Flex sawed off the paws, etc.


By now enforced euthanasia law of this cowardly murders will continue.
Romania shows that, once again, that it is not a civilized country and not having moral maturity to be a member of the EU. The problem of street dogs resulted solely from the irresponsibility of the people who threw these animals on the road they are not neutered and did not care about them. Instead of taking responsibility for the animals and humane and civilized way to decimate the population of the animals by castration and consistent to adopt, there is the Romanian government only cold-blooded murder as a supposed solution. Numerous studies show that killing does not lead to the decimation of the population. There are many NGOs and Romanian animal rights activists who have made ​​and shown outstanding work in recent years, how to by neuter & release measures, and care can effectively and humanely manage the problem of street dogs. fact that Romania against the Constitutional Court represents, and to date, the implementation of appropriate and ethical measures of population control (WHO) has refused, a perfidious background. In Romania, a lucrative business model has evolved to earn the dog hunter, municipalities and mayors million euros with the murder of stray animals.

Up to € 250 per dog paid by municipalities to animal shelters for accommodation. Funds are part of EU funds and in any case tax dollars and mean certain death for the dogs . Man looking at tendering the cheapest shelter, where the animals are after arrival often equal murdered or die of starvation – causes zero cost – brings 100% profit.
more aggressive and dangerous dogs in the media can be shown, the more one has the legitimacy to . assassinate a lucrative business, also funded by EU.

We therefore urge you to review the payment and appropriate use of EU funds in Romania and to end this possible misuse of EU funds.  it can not be that every tax-paying EU citizens is made ​​involuntarily to the dog killer, because with these funds will subsidize the killing of dogs!

It’s bad that it could come in Romania so far, especially against the background that we animal rights activists, both you, Mr Schulz, including all MEP `s in the last few years constantly on the murder of millions of stray animals and the use of EU agents have noted, interspersed with information, pictures and facts into knowledge. Countless petitions Written Declarations and protests were addressed to the European Parliament, many delegations from animal rights activists traveled to Brussels for talks. All that remained without significant changes and achievements.
We do not take longer accept that you and the EU Parliament will continue to stand idly such a inhumane and criminal goings-on in Romania and can thus be exploited for the local system.

For discussions and assistance in the management of street dogs we like are available.

Sincerely yours

Princess Maja von Hohenzollern (animal rights activist)
Dieter Ernst (President ETN eV )
Petra Zipp ( Chairman bmt eV)

    This barbaric slaughter MUST stop now! These dogs are not guilty of any crime other than trying to stay alive. I and many others do not believe a child was killed by dogs! The ‘interview’ with the so called ‘family’ was so staged it was painful to watch!

  20. Deborah Reilly September 23, 2013 at 1:45 pm #

    The brutality inflicted on these innocent cats and dogs is unforgivable and inexcusable. Politicians, Mayors and your henchmen, stop thinking about lining your pockets with blood money and focus on what’s best for your country, it’s citizens and animals. Shame on all who have had a hand in these murders. Spay/neuter is the way forward.

    How is it possible that poor stray dogs have been killed without proof of having done nothing?? And the dna tests were done after having killed those poor dogs?? Is unbelievable that in europe happened this masacre without testing.
    The poor creatures have no voice..nobody defended them..look at their faces…they don.t kill kids. They are too good for our world..
    So look after ther real murderer.

    Pls stop the masacre of dogs in rumania.

  29. Seppo Koivula September 25, 2013 at 9:29 pm #

    This is wrong way to go, spay and neuter is a very important thing to do in Romania.

  30. marion blumenfeld September 26, 2013 at 12:45 am #

    Pls stop the mass assessination of dogs in rumania…
    Why are you doing this? The poor dogs are in the streets because they were abandoned. So why don.t you kill the people who abandoned them instead?

    These poor creatures have no voice and nobody to defend them.

    It is unbelievable that in europe you are causing a genocide of dogs.

    Pls stop this terrible massacre. We have no right to take others creatures. .life.
