Almost a year to the day, another mass killing of dogs by hunters. These dogs, some of them very young, lived at the landfill site, Perna, in the Bosanska Krupa (northwestern) region of BiH.
Today, animal rescuer and activist Amra Dervisevic went to Perna to pick up a dog named Medo, she had found him a home. Instead she found the dead bodies of about 50 dogs, most of the bodies buried and hidden under piles of trash. She could not find Medo, but no doubt he was killed with the other dogs.
Amra Dervisevic states that the hunting club L.D. “Grmec” Bosanska Krupa is responsible for the killings, and that the ‘event’ was coordinated by J.K.P.”Cistoca” (communal public company responsible for garbage disposal in Cazin Municipality). This company catches stray dogs in town and dumps them at the landfill in Perna, and then hunters come and kill the dogs.
Amra writes: “I went to find Medo today (he found an adopter) but I didn’t find him, I didn’t find anyone. They were all killed, every single one of them, and then covered in piles of trash. More than 50 poor souls… Who else could’ve done than the hunters, H.S “Grmec”. Bosanska Krupa has done the same thing again, despite of all the charges and poaching, and not obeying the Law protecting the animals, and the hunting law. And J.K.P “Cistoca” still takes, not only stray animals, but animals with owners who just happened to run away. The communal police should do an inspection of the landfill site – they would find numerous irregularities, but it’s far more important to worry about what I’m doing. BiH mayors are first in all segments when it comes to entering the EU, and yet they’re breaking the laws all together. Is there a law for these criminals? Is there a good lawyer to fight them? I know they’ll see this. They have no idea in how much pain I’m right now, and these poor souls that never harmed anyone. RIP my angels.”

In Bosnia and Herzegovina torture and killing animals is a common occurrence. In adults the offence is punishable by fine or imprisonment, however the arrest and prosecution of perpetrators of such crimes very rarely occur, but the activists will not cease from attempting to bring the perpetrators to justice.
Please send emails to the officials involved in the area, letting them know you are aware of what is happening and that it contravenes the laws of the country:
