Una – Sana Canton is one of the most notorious cantons in Bosnia, where illegal killings of stray dogs frequently occur. On the 25th November (Independence Day of Bosnia and Herezgeovina), an unknown group caught and killed dozens of stray dogs in the municipality of Bosanska Krupa. According to the initial information from the field, killers are members of a hunting organisation and this illegal and criminal act has been financed by the authorities of the municipality Bosanska Krupa.
Citizens of Bosanska Krupa were shocked by the incidents in their town, especially after a badly injured dog, which had somehow managed to escape killers, was found in the centre of the town. The dog has a very critical fracture of the jaw and many injuries on his body. The fracture is serious because the jaw is completely separated from the rest of the skull, but the veterinarian has decided to try to save this horrifically injured dog. External fixators were applied in order to stabilize bone and soft tissues at a distance from the operative or injury focus.
Also, more dog corpses were found in the town.
A criminal report will be filed with the Prosecutor’s Office of Una – Sana Canton against all persons who are suspected to be part of the organisation that financed and committed these criminal offences.
As is obvious from this cruel case, groups of hunters still operate in many areas of Bosnia and Herzegovina with the goal of killing stray dogs and being paid for their notorious and illegal actions. Some of the best paid work for hunters is the killing of stray dogs, which often takes place in small and not so very well known parts of Bosnia.
