Romania: Hell’s Basement for Animals

July 11, 2010

Please send SAMPLE LETTER (below) to email block; I do not know who wrote this letter for credit as it was on the original alert. Also PLEASE NOTE that I have removed five invalid addresses from the original alert, including one for the mayor, but more may refuse letters so it is possible you will receive additional address failures. Thank you.

Simulposted with Save the Dogs

Three months were needed of waiting and investigations to show what everyone knew for a very long time: the public dog pound in Costanza, managed by the company Alfmob srl, is nothing more than a big slaughterhouse for stray dogs. The images posted next to the dog pound, clearly show healthy animals injected in the thorax by someone looking like a veterinarian, placed in line on the ground dead and in a plastic bag. The bodies are then transported to an incinerator in a nearby region, an incinerator financed with European funds.

In the video material gathered by Save the Dogs, one can also see the captures in Cernavoda, the prohibited hygienic conditions in the Costanza dog pound and the large pincers (banned by the Romanian law – like the killing of healthy animals) used to seize the poor animals. Save the Dogs has sent a series of images to all the major Romanian television stations and the press, as well, the members of the local council of Cernavoda, asking to immediately interrupt their contract with Alfmob. Moreover, a legal action as been undertaken against the company and the vet who undertook the killings. To view the press release, click HERE.

SAMPLE LETTER (as provided in initial alert, thank you to whomever wrote it):
To whom it may concern,

“The GREATNESS and the MORAL PROGRESS of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” ( M Gandhi )

I am outraged by the terrifying news about the way animals are treated in your country. It is beyond human comprehension to understand how it is possible such barbaric acts happen every day, all over your country, and more, the perpetrators are not punished in accordance with the full extent of the law for the protection of animals and also based on the Principles of the European Convention For the Protection of Companion Animals ( Strasbourg Nov.13, 1987.)

Please stop the slaughter of dogs in CONSTANTA…and defer to justice those who killed helpless, defenseless , healthy dogs….There is a criminal who ORDERED this massacre and he must legally punished for this…

Romania is a beautiful country; it used to have a good reputation around the world. I am afraid that, due to the horrifying cruelty shown by many Romanians against animals, due to the lack of action from the authorities supposed to implement the law, due to the fact that many perpetrators are even those hired by local authorities…Romania’s and Romanian people’s reputation has been badly tarnished.

I will not visit your country any time soon and I will inform my relatives and friends not to visit either, until all those who committed crimes against animals are punished at the full extent of the law and until the Law for the protection of animals is IMPLEMENTED and applied to everybody, including the officials who did not observe it. I will avoid buying any product of Romania, until animals are treated with respect and dignity and fully protected by the LAW.

The public dog pound in Costanza, managed by the company Alfmob srl, is nothing more than a big slaughterhouse for stray dogs:

How the public dog pound really looks like and what happens in there. In those areas, dogs are left to starve …no water either…for one week….then they are killed. As simple as that.

Mangalia public pound finally closed ….does it look HUMAN to you ?

Thank you for your attention.

    To a man whose mind is free there is something even more intolerable in the sufferings of animals than in the sufferings of man. For with the latter it is at least admitted that suffering is evil and that the man who causes it is a criminal. But thousands of animals are uselessly butchered every day without a shadow of remorse. If any man were to refer to it, he would be thought ridiculous. And that is the unpardonable crime.
    ~Romain(ia) Rolland, Nobel Prize 1915

    Please boycott Romanian tourism. If you will do it really you save numerous innocent animals-victims from this inhuman, corrupted, barbaric, caveman Romanian regime.

    Buna ziua.
    Domnule prefect,m-am adresat dumneavoastra,deoarece stiu ca nu sunteti coleg de partid cu primarul orasului Eforie si poate ne veti ajuta in urmatoarea problema:
    Va rog personal si in numele mai multor pensionari si persoane in virsta din zona Grand din Eforie Nord,care suntem nevoiti atit noi,cit si turistii din zona sa ocolim peste 700 m,pentru a merge spre plaje,deoarece primarul si consilierii,nu s-au multumit cu ce au vindut sa-si umple buzunarele si au inceput sa dispara si alei.
    In speta si ce ne deranjaza,este disparitia aleii pe care mergeam spre plaje,intre braseria Grand si parcul clinicii Grand,alee care de cind locuim in oras a existat pina a venit acest primar,care nu stim sub ce forma a dat-o in proprietatea patronului de la braseria Grand,care a blocato,a mai intrat si in spatiul clinicii cu peste 1,5m,iar noi batrinii ocolin,pe cind altii vind orice.
    Am vazut zilele trecute citeva persoane cu masina de Bucuresti,care masurau micul parculet,situat pe str.Republicii peste strada de hotel Holiday si cred ca acest parculet cit de curind va fi desfiintat si iar domnul primar va face rost de bani.
    Poate ne ajutati sa ne recuperan aleea , sa nu dispara micul spatiu verde si poate si alte spatii pe care are de gind primarul sa le vinda,care da zor cu vinzarile deoarece se apropie alegerile si nu mai are timp,ca de ce s-a facut primar!,nu ca sa fure din avutia orasului!

    Va multumesc.
