Animal abuse is rife in Bosnia Herzegovina and the problem of companion animal, particularly dog overpopulation has become a problem of epidemic proportions; there are no humane animal control programs in place and the corruption occurring at management level in many public dog 'shelters' means that shelters are part of the problem, with dogs left to starve or being "euthanised" by injections of bleach or clubbing. The general populace of this country views stray dogs and cats as nothing more than a vermin to be exterminated – or worse.
I would hope, pray, beg that the action on going in Romania would never have happened but facts are facts. Horrible death, tortuous death, being beaten, stabbed, hung.... Every means of death the people on the streets can do.
We can not allow this to continue and spread to the other countries. WE must stop the spread of this craziness, MURDER is not the way to animal control.
Education of animal owners, neuter and spaying adoption and sponsorship are the means of control.
