I am currently fighting a war to get justice for three dogs who were murdered by a bus driver in Croatia. I have made a petition which asks for a punishment for him according to the Animal Protection Law. The petition is here in Croatian Language: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/traimo-otkaz-i-kaznu-propisanu-zakonom-za-vozaa-liburnije-koji-je-usmrtio-tri-psa/
On Monday, November 22nd, a bus driver of Liburnija d.o.o. driving on the road of Diklo near Zadar, purposely murdered three dogs that were on the road. Because of the work being conducted at that location, the speed limit is 30 km / h. The driver ran over the dogs at high speed, only 10 meters from the passenger station where he was supposed to stop.
According to the testimonies of eyewitnesses, the driver did not even try to stop, but he stepped on the gas even more when he saw the dogs on the road. After the event, he continued driving, without stopping at the station and without checking back on the dead dogs who were left behind.The bus company Liburnija d.o.o, said they are not planing any penalties for the driver, and explained this decision saying that, “the driver could not hit the brakes because some people in the bus were standing.” The police and veterinary inspectors say that the driver is not guilty and that he will not bear any penalties. The only penalties are for the dog’s guardians who will be charged for not keeping their pets on a leash.
This whole case is so absurd and brings into question the safety of all citizens because the driver could have easily killed humans and small children on the road, because by the logic of Liburnija d.o.o., he does not stop the bus if people in it are standing.
One of the dog’s guardian said that his dog (named ‘Medo’ – ‘Teddy bear’), was like a son to him, he also believes that the driver did this intentionally.
In short; the driver saw the dogs on time, didn’t even try to hit the brakes but hit the gas even harder, killed three dogs and continued driving like a maniac and like nothing happened.
Here is a video of the case:
The police in Croatia is of no use although we have an Animal Protection Law, which clearly says:
(1) A legal person shall be guilty of an offence and liable to a fine from HRK 50.000,00 to HRK 100.000,00 for:
1. killing animals, subjecting them to pain, suffering and injury, and intentionally exposing them to fear (Article 4, paragraph 1).
I am hoping that if this story gets into a lot of media, Croatian and foreign, maybe then our police and Liburnija d.o.o. will make a move and punish the bus driver.
This is more than just another case of animal cruelty, this kind of cruelty is happening in Croatia everyday, and everytime the police fails to do anything about it. It is time that we, as citizens, do something about it to show future maniacs that they WILL be punished according to the existing Animal Protection Law.

From Liburnia and still no penalties for drivers, but said that “he could not hit the brakes because some passengers were standing.” The police and veterinary inspectors say that the driver is not guilty, and that will not bear any penalty. This statement is absurd and brings into question the safety of all citizens because they were on the road to find the people and small children, which would logically Liburnia driver also ran over, because it does not stop when people in the bus stand. Such driver and mode Liburnia poses a danger to all citizens, and therefore hereby demand the punishment of the driver and a public apology and compensation Liburnia guardian dogs for pretpljene mental anguish over the loss of their family members.
The petition, which requests a punishment prescribed by law, shall be delivered to the address administration Liburnia Ltd., the police, veterinary inspection, and the media.
If Liburnija doo still do not take anything about the driver, and if the driver remains unpunished, we will boycott Liburnija doo buses until further notice, and protest in front of their seats. Liburnija Ltd. already has a bad reputation, so it is sanctioning the controversial move that the best drivers can do if they want to continue with a turnover of your company.
