Bulgaria to Propose Jail Time for Animal Cruelty

Bulgaria's Agriculture Minister, Miroslav Naydenov, is proposing 1 to 5 years behind bars for individuals convicted in committing acts of cruelty against animals. The amendment will be included in the new Penal Code, and was triggered by Bulgaria's latest animal cruelty case where an unknown perpetrator cut the four paws of a dog in the town of Dryanovo. The amendment was requested from Naydenov by representatives of Animal Rights organizations, who met with the Agriculture Minister Tuesday. Meanwhile, an online petition collected thousands of signatures for incriminating acts of animal cruelty. The amendments will be prepared by a working group of lawyers, Members of the Parliament and NGOs.

I'm so happy this little girl was given a new beginning. Bless the women who took her.

Mima In her new home( dog that had legs cut off)

by Gary Edwards (videos) 1:18 Good news!!! Mima arrived at her new home.The translation for video is below...

One of the woman in the video says "when they had come to her for the first time (because Mima was in Dryanovo and they came from Ruse) and when they came to pet her, tears burst from the dogs eyes.

We will not put her to sleep. We will do anything to help her and give Mima all the love and care she needs now. The dog will become the symbol of changing the laws in Bulgaria and we hope this will never ever happen again".... ; http://www.facebook .com/?sk= messages&tid=1221998284672# !/video/video. php?v=4021218580 71&ref=mf
