#Bosnia a country of barbarians, wil join the killing law!! Last chance for Bosnian animals. Sign this petitions!!
A key member of the animal welfare lobby has stated:
"We need to play this smart, plan good timing for every action and save some ammunition for the days and weeks to come!"
To reverse or change the existing law (which, although not implemented, has an excellent basis for a humane management programme) for a kill law will be a disaster for a number of reasons, not least of which:
It will damage Bosnia-Herzegovina’s international image
It will fail
It will allow wholesale murder of stray dogs and cats
We already have documentation of how 'shelters' tend to 'euthanise' animals: by clubbing, injections of bleach and so on. So you can be sure that if the existing animal welfare law is changed, such means of 'euthanisation' will become commonplace.
Also, the studies on management of stray dog and cat population are unanimous in that euthanisation is NOT the most effective way to control populations. Euthanasia deals only with the symptoms and not the cause of the problem. It is expensive, inhumane and will not provide a permanent solution. Studies have shown that TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) and CNR (Catch-Neuter-Return) programmes are far more effective (and far more humane) than euthanasia to reduce the street animal population.
