Target: Traian Basescu, President of Romania
Goal: Prosecute hunters in Romania who killed 30 dogs for fun
In a field in Tulcea County in Romania, hunters shot about thirty dogs. The dogs were there guarding sheep for their owners. Villagers nearby saw the scene take place and said the men looked drunk and appeared to be killing the dogs for fun. As soon as the men finished their killing spree, the hunters took the animals, put them into the trunk of their car and drove off. They thought they could get away without anybody seeing, but unfortunately for them there were many witnesses. Villagers near the field saw the whole thing and contacted the police. Police are now investigating the issue, but some people are afraid that nothing will be done and the hunters will walk free.
This incident highlights a larger issue in Romania, where people who abuse animals often go unpunished. People are killing animals for fun without any repercussions. The Romanian government needs to implement stricter policies for people who are charged with killing animals. If they continue to turn a blind eye to these incidents, the problem will keep on getting worst. Romanian law allows for the execution of dogs in shelters if they are not homed within 14 days. This is problematic since the standards at the animal shelters are so poor. This treatment of animals is cruel and needs to be fixed.
Please sign this petition to ask Romania to improve their animal rights laws by prosecuting the hunters who shot the poor innocent dogs.
Dear Traian Basescu, President of Romania,
A couple of irresponsible drunken hunters shot 30 dogs in your country for entertainment. No animal deserves to be killed for fun, and being under the influence of alcohol is no excuse for what these hunters have done. These drunken hunters need to be fined and sent to jail for killing the dogs and attempting to cover it up by hiding the dogs in the trunk of their car. This incident is both sad and inhumane, and deserves worldwide attention because it puts light on the issue of animal abuse in Romania.
As the President of Romania, please sentence these hunters to the fullest extent possible. Animal abusers should not be able to get away with what they have done. In this particular incident, they killed an extremely high number of dogs and need to serve time for what they did.
