Final solution proposed for Bucharestís stray dogs

Bucharestís massive stray dog population face a massacre under a new law proposal from Bucharest prefect Mihai Atanasoaei

May 2010 - From the Print Edition

Amendments include provisions to kill sick and aggressive dogs and those in shelters who are not adopted after seven days. If passed, the new proposals are likely to cause international outrage. According to the prefect, the proposals are in line with EU legislation and attempt to solve public health issues as well as cut costs. Pro-dog NGOs claim there are 40,000 stray dogs in the capital, while the local Government claims there are 100,000 Ė the true number is unknown. Bucharest Mayor Sorin Oprescu opposes the proposals. He backs the ongoing project by pro-dog NGOs of picking up stray dogs, sterilising them and then placing them back on the street.
