#BOSNIA out of #EU !! The Government of Canton #Sarajevo has issued a decision to "clear" the streets of stray dogs!!
Via 'In Memory of Vucko' - The Government of Canton Sarajevo has issued a decision ruling that the dog catching service of P. E. “Rad” be formed on 11th September, 2014, with the aim of removing aggressive, ill and elderly strays from the streets of Sarajevo, and “euthanising” them.
This particular dog catchers’ service was active until 2009, using catching, torturing and killing methods similar to those that had been used in concentration camps that had existed in Bosnia during the war (1992 – 1995).
The Animal Protection and Welfare Act of Bosnia and Herzegovina came into force in April 2009, and it was then that this dog catching service was shut down: the Veterinary Inspection of Canton Sarajevo issued a decision ruling that the dog catchers of P. E. “Rad” must stop working immediately, because its methods were illegal and contrary to the provisions of the Animal Protection and Welfare Act.
However, while this dog catching service and the people enacting the crimes were criminally responsible for crimes, no charges were ever brought.
The recent decision to restore the dog catching service of P. E. “Rad” means that the government of Bosnia and Herzegovina has abused the official authority because they have breached the Animal Welfare and Protection Act of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
What will the restoration of this dog catching service mean for stray dogs and for citizens?
If dog catchers start working, many of the stray dogs will be killed in Sarajevo, using inhumane methods that are cheap: untrained dog catchers, wire nooses, ‘euthanasia’ by crushing skulls, injections of bleach (cheaper than the prescription drugs used in other parts of the world for this purpose) and other torturous methods. Hundred thousands of Euros for this ‘programe’ will be allocated, but you can ask yourself where this money will, in fact, be used.
If these activities proceed, citizens will meet dog catchers and witness their activities. Many people who have already witnessed the atrocities committed by dog catchers were traumatised, especially children.
This situation is illegal, it is against the constitution, it is a criminal offence.
Animal welfare activists want to use all legal means to end this horror, to save stray dogs and to make sure the government implements the existing Animal Protection and Welfare Act.
They will bring legal action against the illegal activities, they will document the activities and will petition against the decision. They are also trying to educate everyone in their country to the truth of what is happening.
If you can help with legal fees and other associated costs for activists please send a donation to email@example.com and mark for ‘legal fees etc’.
Also, Journalists for Animals needs support document the situation and tell the world what is happening. There is a special YouCaring for donations for this.

#tourism #Bosnia #Herzegovina a country of DEVIL!!! Rest in peace, dear boy. It was not your fault that all that happened, you just wanted to give a lots of smiles all around. But the evil people do not need it, now you know that... You've gone without saying goodbye, the night before hanging out with the ones you love, children, people with good heart, and in the morning your soul was somewhere far beyond the rainbow bridge, with your shaggy Friends. And you did not alone, you still took six of your buddies with yourself ... you left a smile that will never be able to forget ... and a mountain of grief. Rest now, my dear boy, be happy and smile, now nobody can't hurt you any more.

#Bosnia #Herzegovina another hell hole for animals!! Elections will affect destiny of stray animals!
In summer of 2013 Nermina Zaimovic Uzunovic, a representative of Social Democratic Party in House of Representatives in Parliamentary Assembly proposed obscene, primitive and inhuman provision for euthanasia of healthy stray animals in shelters for stray animals. That amendment provides euthanasia of stray animals that are fostered in shelters for stray animals, if they are not adopted in 14 days. This provision is intended to mask the massacres that are happening over stray animals.
There are many illegal shelters for stray animals that are formed and led by persons who are close to Bosnia authorities. Animals are being tortured and killed in those shelters constantly. Animals are being beaten, cut, clubbed, raped or tortured in many other horrific ways. Animals do not have water, food, accommodation, they are freezing or they are exposed to extremely high temperatures. Also, animals are being killed with wires, clubs, glass shreds, poison and also fire arms. While all these atrocities are happening, local authorities are financing people who own those shelters. It is a money laundering. Also many stray animals are tortured and killed on the streets. There are many cases of abuse of animals in Bosnia. Authorities do not do anything to find and punish animal abusers. Enormous funds from European Union and budgets of Bosnian authorities have been laundered through the so-called shelters for stray animals, whose owners, directors, managers, are people close to the local authorities in municipalities. If Animal Protection and Welfare Law of Bosnia and Herzegovina is changed, thousands of stray animals will be massacred within 14 days and money from EU and UK will be used for killing of innocent beings in the most terrible way.
Act on Amendments to the Act on Protection and Welfare of animals had been legislated by representatives of House of Representatives of Parliamentary Assembly, but members of Constitutional – Legal Committee of House of People were against proposed amendments and they enacted a negative opinion. Due to the lack of the required entity majority negative opinion of the Committee about Amendments to Act on Protection and Welfare of animals were rejected by delegates of House of People. Collegium of House of People shall harmonize Amendments to Animal Protection and Welfare Act.
Sulejman Tihic is a member of Collegium of House of People. He has a cancer. His health condition is bad. Because of that he does not participate in sessions of House of People. Session of Collegium shall not be held without his presence. There is a real possibility that Collegium of House of People will not be held before elections in October 2014. It means that the first voting on Amendments to Act on Protection and Welfare of animals had been shall not be held. General Elections are to be held in October, 2014. There is a real possibility that political parties, which want to change Act on Protection and Welfare of animals, will win elections. Amendments to the Act on Protection and Welfare of animals are legal paradox and it is impossible to implement them in practice, but that will not stop Bosnian politicians from legislating proposed amendments. If amendments are legislated after election, appellation will be given to Constitutional Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
