"Illegal, horrific environment in facilities where dogs were held in cages frightened him and he witnessed this horrid scene when his dog, from starvation and stress started to eat a dead dog. His attempt to rescue dying dogs from cages was interrupted by strangling, when a worker of communal enterprise attacked him, grabbed him on the neck-to prevent him from coming near dogs"

November -3rd .2006. -in town Sviljanac, a member of four Serbian nongovernmental organizations for animal protection, an Animal Activists Goran Gruin in his attempt to save his dog from "shinters-dog catchers" was attacked and beaten up by workers of communal Enterprise "Morava"..

Activist Goran was begging for his dog and then was viciously attacked in front of his family (wife and two very young children). Goran came peacefully, with his two daughters, and then he was beaten up while his children were watching in fear.

After whole ordeal, Activist Goran and his family went to the doctor where they were diagnosed with severe stress condition, Goran with several bruises on his neck. His two daughters were in big shock and were crying trough the night… All that Goran wanted to do was to save a life, and he got nightmare to come, as dog he wanted to rescue was killed later…
Goran stated in telephone call: "It's not what my family and I got trough that day that gives me nightmares… I just can't stop regretting for not saving those dogs…"
Where is that democracy, and what about our civil rights?

Sample letter

Honorable Officials,

It has come to the attention of concerned citizens all around the world, that a mass killing of animals is taking place in Sviljanac, in violation of Serbia-Valjevo, article 269. It came to our attention too, that animal welfare representatives in Svilajnac are attacked by workers of JKP Morava and that dogs in the pound are horribly suffering from malnorishment and neglect.

We raise our voices to protest such brutal and senseless killings, in violation of your own laws and urge you to seek the help of local rescue groups, to assist you in re-homing and helping the animals.

Your stray policy is a shame for Europe and civilized countries.

STOP THE BRUTAL KILLINGS NOW. How can you dare to continue your stray policies while the world is watching your insane actions ?
