February 2002

  • A Government ordinance regulates now the management of street dogs in Romania. Catch and kill practice is now national policy. 7 days delay between catch and killing is allowed to enable claimers to recover dogs, but ... "all agressive dogs will be immediately killed" so killing is in reality left at the discretion of the dog catchers, who just turn it into a balckmail tool. Euthanasia, as a humane method of killing, is compulsory, but the presence/check from independent animal protection organization is not compulsory, is left at the benevolence of the authorities who ... deny it.
  • ASA, the Administration for the Supervision of Animals in the Bucharest City Hall has been desmanteled. Its activity has been taken over by dedicated services in each of the 6 districts (called Sectors) of Bucharest. The impact on the killing programme is yet unclear.
  • Dog killing has become regular practice all over Romania and the media is still abundent in instigating coverage of man-dog conflict incidents.

This site illustrates, obviously, the story of a failed campaign to stop attrocities against animals. The situation is much worse than at the start of this campaign. Lessons will be learned, undoubtelly, by all parties...
