Based on the latest news about the DEATH of a champion horse who was living at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Bucharest as "study material" , based on the contradictory testimonies and statements given by students, faculty members and the DEAN of the institution himself : Mr. GABRIEL PREDOI, and also based on the news about how the F.V.M. Bucharest treats the animals in their care, we, the undersigned ask for a FULL Investigation into all the allegations regarding the total disregard of this institution and its members for the Romanian Laws for the protection of animals.We include all the links about this matter as they appeared in the Romanian Media.Anything less then a FULL, OPEN AND UNBIASED INVESTIGATION will continue to raise suspicions about the treatment of animals in the Romanian schools of veterinary medicine as a whole, the University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine in Bucharest, the FMV Bucharest and on ROMANIA as a country which tolerates far too many cases of animal cruelty without proper investigation from the authorities in charge to apply the law. No crime against animals should remain unpunished from now on.
Please also include in your investigation the role played by Mr. Nicu Ceausescu , president on : Clubul Agroindustrial in this very unusual situation which led to the very suspicious death of a horse who had an owner and also some adoption requests from people who could have offered him a dignified retirement.
Please investigate HOW this horse died....(was he sedated before being "sacrificed" for science, did they just cut the jugular and let him bleed to death...did he have a heart attack , did he have intestinal problems.....) this was horse was in a quite good shape on the Saturday ( Dec.4th 2010)...and was killed Monday Dec.6, without any notice given to the real owner not the potential adopters whose adoption papers were already on the desk of the Dean G.Predoi for quite a while..
There are very many dark aspects in this tragic event and we hope that the Romanian prosecutors will be able to find the truth. Please investigate thoroughly why the OWNER of this horse has no been informed about the decision taken by Mr.N.Ceausecu and recently by the FMV to kill this horse whom they did not own.
The time has come for those responsible for breaking the laws of the land to be held responsible and to be severely punished for the crimes they have been found guilty, REGARDLESS OF THEIR SOCIAL STATUS.

The international community of animal lovers and animal rights activists from all over the world will follow up this situation and will stay in touch with people in Romania who ask justice for Senior and also who want a full review of how animals are treated ( and sacrificed ) at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Bucharest.
It is your duty to restore the rule of LAW and also the image of a Romanian University and also of Romania as a country know nowadays as a horrible place for the animals.
Thank you very much for your attention
