Horror Shelter Hreša – Back in Action


We have heard reports that dog catchers from Hreša “shelter” in the Republika Srpska  (one of two political entities in Bosnia and Herzegovina), with the help of local community workers are working every day in Sarajevo, outside of their legal jurisdiction.

Two days ago they were in the old town, they caught a couple of dogs, there was blood all over the place. It all happened in elementary school yard,” said one activist.

Reports say dogs were chased and beaten with iron rods. “Police were called to the scene but did not intervene, instead they issued a sentence for disturbing public order and peace to the citizens who stood up in defence of the dogs and rebelled against the abuse of animals.

We await further reports.
