we've got signatures, help us get to 1,000 by February 29, 2012
Please join the Romanian Animal Protection officials, and Romanian animal rights activists, in their legal battle to ask for justice in the case of the recent massacres of stray dogs in TARGU-JIU ROMANIA.
One day after Christmas a fisherman from Targu-Jiu made a gruesome discovery on the River Jiu banks...over 30 dead dogs, scattered everywhere, on a 500m area...and bag with animal remains in the river. Police has been called to investigate BUT, as this is NOT the first time in that city, that such horrible discoveries occur, after which Police concluded that they can not punish anybody...and closed the case, we intend to press the local Law Enforcement agencies to find out, this time, not only how come so many dogs ended up dead in the same place and same time, but WHO did it...this is a mass killing...
We hope that the legal complains and the international outrage about this crime, will force the Local Law Enforcement agencies to fully apply the law in force in Romania for the protection of animals, and will punish in the most severe way these individuals.
There might be the tendency to cover up or to find and excuse or , who knows what....and THIS tendency MUST STOP...it is far too common to let let people who commit crimes against animals to walk free, to get a small fine or even not to get charged at all.
The time has come for Romania to implement and APPLY the laws of the land. Romanian Police does not take the Law 9/2008, for the protection of animals seriously, and many times acts as if THIS law does not even exist.
We ask for a thorough and tough investigation and for the harshest punishment of all the individuals involved.
The letter to the target is bilingual.
Thank you .
Dear Romanian Authorities,
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Stimate autoritati romane
Doamnelor si Domnilor
Please investigate thoroughly, find the criminals and ask for the harshest punishments under the Romanian laws for the protection of animals, in force in Romania.
Va rugam anchetati , gasiti vinovatii si cereti cele mai aspre pedepse pentru uciderea cainilor la Targu-Jiu.
It is with great stupor that we found out about the recent massacre of over 30-40 dogs in the city of Targu-Jiu, Gorj County - whose dead bodies have been dumped in the Jiu River.
Am aflat cu stupoare despre recentul masacru a peste 30 de caini la Targu-Jiu, judetul Gorj - a caror cadavre au fost descoperite p[e malurile Jiului.
This is another yet another example about how animals, especially stray dogs, are "disposed of" in your country, which unfortunately has become notorious for the horrible treatment of animals.
Iata un alt exemplu despre felul in care sunt tratate animalele, in special cainii fara stapan, considerati probabil gunoaie, in tara dumneavoastra care din pacate a devenit notorie pentru felul oribil in care sunt tratate animalele
( webtv says that over 30 dogs have been found dead, and dumped on the river Jiu side )
We join our voices with all the good people in Romania, who fight for animals rights and with the representatives of the Organizations for the Protection of Animals in Romania, who started legal action , to protest this atrocity and to ask the local Law Enforcement agencies to do everything in their legal power to find the criminals, to defer them to Justice and to make sure, that they get the harsher punishment possible, based on the Romanian Law for the Protection of Animals.
Ne aluturam vocile oamenilor buni din Romania, care lupta pentru drepturile animalelor, organizatiilor pentru protectia animalelor care au initiat actiune legala in acest caz, si protestam impotriva acestei atrocitati cerand organelor competente sa faca tot ce le sta im putinta din punct de vedere legal sa gaseasca pe cei care au comis aceasta crima, sa-i defere justitiei si sa ceara cele mai severe pedepse prevazute de legislatia pentru protectia animalelor in vigoare in Romania.
Any failure to solve this case will be detrimental to the image Romania has in the world right now and also to Justice it self.
Orice esec in rezolvarea acestui caz va fi in detrimentul imagii Romaniei in lume si al Justitiei insasi.
The time has come for Romanian authorities to UPHOLD the laws of their country and to show the world that these crimes are no longer tolerated in a civilized country, member EU, in the 21st century
A sosit momentul ca autoritatile romane sa aplice legile tarii lor si sa arate lumii intregi ca aceste crime nu vor mai fi tolerate intr-o tara civilizata, membre UE, in secolul 21.
We hope that the New Year will restore the Rule of Law in Romania, and the dignity for every living creature and most especially will give back to all the animals their incontestable and fundamental right - the right to live.
Speram ca in Noul An , legalitatea sa fie nrestaurata in Romania impreuna cu demnitatea fiecarei fiinte si mai ales sa fie redate animelelor dreptul lor incontestabil si fundamental " dreptul de a trai ".
We will follow very closely the developments of this investigation and we expect othing but JUSTICE for these innocent victims of human barbarism.
Vom urmari indeaproape felul in care evolueaza ancheta si nu acceptam decat sa se faca dreptate pentru victimele nevinovate ale barbarismului.
"The greatness and the moral progress of a nation can be judged by the way animals are treated"
"Maretia si progresul moral al unei natiuni, pot fi judecate dupa felul cum isi trateaza animalele"
Thank you very much for your attention
We wish that the New Year will bring compassion and peace for all living beings !
Va multumim pentru atentie
Dorim ca Noul An sa aduca pace si compasiune pentru toate fiintele !
