THE WAR IS OVER BUT THE MASSACRE CONTINUES

November 23, 2007 at 12:19 am 1 comment

Over the years, we hade been contacted by countless Serbians concerned about the startling escalation of blatant animal abuse in their country, who requested that we tell their story while keeping their identities secret.  Following, are facts and observations recounted by Serbian citizens. Ten years have passed since Serbian hostilities were laid to rest.  It is absurd and unacceptable to use the war as an excuse for abuse, neglect, indifference and inaction. Yet, torturing, poisoning and brutally killing dogs and cats is still occurring without punishment for the perpetrators of these vicious animal related crimes. The ‘Serbian scene’ is of growing concern to civilized people everywhere. Serbian animal welfare advocates have witnessed brutal trapping methods, the ruthless beatings of dogs to death and poisonings, resulting in agonizing deaths. Hunters wantonly shoot abandoned companion animals for sport.Equally as sad and reprehensible is the Belgrade zoo, one of the oldest zoos in Europe. Housing approximately two thousand animals, the zoo has acquired a notorious reputation due to the unacceptable treatment of the animals in their ‘care’. The zoo director has close ties to the Serbian hunting lobby as well as Belgrade’s city hall. Documentation is available from Serbian animal welfare advocates showing these animals confined within squalid living conditions and consequently ill and distressed. Many of these animals exhibit abnormal behavior, such as bar biting, over-grooming, self mutilation, head bashing, circling, leg chewing, etc.

Furthermore, many animals that were born in the zoo throughout the years have disappeared. The zoo claimed that new tigers, bears and a hippo were born recently but the animals  are nowhere to be seen.

    Similar issues in Kosovo. KFOR is involved in the programmed shooting of dogs at night. I believe they were paying locals 10 euros per dog.
