Unimaginable cases of torture and killing of stray animals in Bosnia

WARNING! VERY GRAPHIC CONTENT

Dalida Kozlic L.L.B, lawyer and activist writes:

Increasing hatred towards stray animals in Bosnia and Herzegovina can be shown by the latest cases of vicious torturing and killing of stray animals. Rescuers and animal advocates in different towns and cities of the country are facing an endemic of cruelty towards animals that is getting worse.

Sometimes the most dreadful crimes happen in ordinary places, and it seems that it is becoming a practice in Bosnia. Rescuers in the capital city Sarajevo are right now trying to deal with a brutal and horrific situation. In the past few days, many dogs have been poisoned by an unknown person or persons, mainly in a notorious part of Novi Grad municipality, Dobrinja.

Poisoned dogs are being found in isolated areas as well as on the streets of Dobrinja and other parts of Sarajevo. Traces of poison for mice and snails have been found on the streets and this implies that this is a well prepared and organised criminal offence that is probably committed by a group of people. The poison is highly toxic and animals die within few hours, while veterinarians are trying to find a solution to help animals that are in agony.

Most of the poisoned stray dogs have died, as have a few pets that ate poison hidden in meat. Also, rescuers have found bodies of poisoned cats which is unusual given that cats are cautious animals. They have probably eaten poisoned meat.

The latest case happened in Sarajevo area called Aneks, where one dog was poisoned this morning.

Citizens as well as rescuers are very upset, particularly because the police and the inspection are still silent.

Please see the news report on Radio Sarajevo “Dobrinja / Građani uznemireni: Brojni ulični psi otrovani u Sarajevo” (“Citizens upset: Many street dogs poisoned in Sarajevo”)

Unfortunately, the cruelty of people doesn’t end in Sarajevo.

Hunters in the municipality of Kneževo near Banja Luka killed dozens of stray dogs as well as pets a few days ago. Bodies of shot, abused and killed dogs were found in the forests near Kneževo four days ago. Wounds from gunshot could be seen on the corpses.

Hunters are notorious and illegal executors of stray animals in Bosnia, and this blog has documented a number of killings of dogs by hunters.

Many hunting organisations ignore the law and still kill stray dogs in villages as well as rural areas in Bosnia even when those dogs are not causing harm to wild animals, and despite the fact that hunters are criminally responsible for such actions.

News article on Prnjavorski.net:  “Lovci pobili pse lutalice” (“Hunters kill stray dogs”)

And, rescuers are once more facing an awful new case of torturing of animals in Zenica.

One of the most brutal cases of killing of an animal that I have ever seen as a lawyer and a rescuer has happened in this town. Rescuers of SAPA Zenica found the body of a stray dog few days ago. The brutality of this crime is appalling. The dog was beaten and all her paws were cut off.

Such brutality is extremely worrying and it is devastating to see what someone can do to an animal that cannot defend herself.

I am not good at expressing emotions but as I am writing a new post for this blog I feel that I must express how I feel about these recent atrocities in Bosnia. I believe that every rescuer not only in Bosnia feels the same.
When I was a child, there was a war here in Bosnia. All of us learnt that death was something that could be seen every minute of our lives. I remember how my parents were taking animals to the basement of the house where they placed during the war. After the war, we hoped that it would be better for people as well as for animals. We were wrong.

Why am I mentioning the war? It was a period when everyone including me “met” death for the first time, but it wasn’t an “ordinary” death, it was a death that was a consequence of horrific and cruel events and torture. Some people say that Bosnia is a cursed country, that the land is full of blood and the cruel character of Balkan people will never change.

This sounds like a horror movie, but despite this I am afraid that it is a true. I am the person who only talks about facts, and the fact is that I am writing an article about three cases on unimaginable torture of stray animals in Bosnia. I am writing about animals that are victims of vicious persons, psychopaths with a cruel character in the country where killing someone “is a normal” and where no one pays attention to the suffering of those who can’t defend themselves.

A friend of mine, who was in army during the war, has told me: “You can’t face death almost every day and expect to be the same person as you used to be once.”

He is right.

Rescuers face death almost every day. We face the most notorious consequences of cruel minds and we face suffering every day. The worst thing is that we live in the country where decades are needed to change this situation. We aren’t the same persons as we used to be. We talk and think about the horrors and atrocities and we bear our responsibility to help so many animals. They only have us and no one else. Authorities who ought to protect them, actually kill them and chase us. We live in the country where logic “ends”, but still we don’t give up. We mustn’t give up.

Mass poisoning of stray dogs in Zenica, Bosnia

16114270_1190725531022637_6877927546708079613_nDalida Kozlic L.L.B, lawyer and activist writes:

Once again an awful crime against stray dogs is being committed in Zenica.

As reported widely on online media portals, an unknown offender has poisoned a large number of stray dogs in the last few days, actively violating the Animal Protection and Welfare law of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the worst possible way.

16265802_1190720224356501_4475743961179128105_nThe law unequivocally prohibits indiscriminate killing of abandoned animals and prescribes punishment for abandoning and torturing abandoned animals. The Criminal Code of Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, specifically Article 318, defines torture and killing of animals as a criminal offense that carries a prison sentence of up to one year.

Citizens of Zenica as well as volunteers of the SAPA Zenica animal welfare organisation have found bodies of dead dogs in many parts of the town including on the streets in the city centre, in the doorways of buildings, in the city parks.

This crime has been reported to the local police as well as to the Prosecutor’s Office of Zenica – Doboj Canton.

Volunteers of SAPA have documented this situation, they have seen dogs dying in agony. Right now no one knows what poison is being used nor well who the offender(s) are.

16387260_1190725994355924_4219833290646125777_nSAPA Zenica are joined by people in the city who feed and love stray animals in their attempts to find out more regarding the possible offender(s) as well to save poisoned dogs who are still surviving.

Is it just a coincidence that this awful crime began after the Mayor of Zenica ordered stray dogs in Zenica to be caught?

This order is illegal in a number of ways:

The Zenica shelter for stray dogs has a capacity of 70 dogs, and yet a mass catching of stray dogs has begun. By law the shelters have to provide adequate and humane treatment of animals. Also, the hygienic services company engaged to catch these dogs does not fulfil conditions that are provided by the BiH Ordinance (laws) on the establishment of such companies and how they must conduct their service.

16388349_1190722191022971_6647876357361284454_nAccording to provisions of the Act on Protection and Welfare of Animals every municipality is obliged to establish and finance shelters for stray animals as well as hygienic services that to catch and transport stray animals to veterinary stations and shelters.

Two very important ordinances were legislated in 2010: Ordinances on establishing and conditions that shelters for stray animals and hygienic services must fulfil. Both ordinances provide very strict and humane ways of establishing and maintaining of shelters and hygienic services. Bosnia and Herzegovina has one of the best animal welfare legislations in Europe, but the reality is different and the outcome cruel for stray animals.

This decision of the mayor of Zenica is illegal because the shelter has a capacity of 70 places and therefore there cannot be any action of mass catching of stray dogs. Also, registered and trained dog catchers can catch dogs, not ordinary workers of some company.

Beloved Street Dogs Poisoned in Zenica, Bosnia!

14079507_1040813222680536_5643240606957553860_nFor Malena it was too late, R.I.P.

We have just heard terrible news from the volunteers of SAPA Zenica, animal welfare NGO in Zenica, Bosnia. At least ten dogs have died of poisoning, several are on death’s door. Please read their letter below, read it to honour the lives of the dogs who have been killed, and read it to support the volunteers and children and people who loved and cared for these dogs.

“Dear friends of SAPA Zenica, friends of dogs, of all abandoned animals,

14063919_1040813026013889_4927736897564522878_nI am writing this with a heavy heart and tears. I am writing because I have to write it and because I have to find the strength for all those ones whose voice we are for many years, for those who expect us to stand up and never give up no matter how hard and painful it is, for those whom we must protect, for all those abandoned animals, who were deprived of love, and care and home and who live their lives on the street, being tortured, murdered, caught and poisoned.

Today I write about the dogs of Zenica, where for days dogs are being systematically and covertly poisoned and murdered. Some of these dogs we knew for many many years, they were old Zenica dogs, mascots of their neighbourhood and friends of many children. For some dogs are still fighting for their lives. I am writing this while my chest and heart feels like exploding, it hurts so much and the fear and sadness I feel can hardly put in words.

More than 15 dogs in just a couple of days were monstrously poisoned in one neighbourhood in Zenica, four more are on vet treatment and we fight for their lives and they are, since yesterday, on infusions and mediations and still fighting. More than 10 dogs have died.

14068306_1040812822680576_9193759318507818927_nWe reported the case to the Police, the Prosecutors office, Cantonal Vet Inspection, and we will issue a press release. We wrote on local FB pages and alerted all people to watch and check the status of dogs and their health and we distributed telephone numbers of the vets. Threats of poisoning were received some time ago, anonymous threats, that dogs in the neighbourhood would be poisoned, there are indications what group of people would do this and we shared this with police. For years we live in fear, panic, and discomfort, surrounded by people who hate animals, dogs in particular, people who fail to understand the root of the problem, but we endured somehow. We live surrounded by everyday threats and insults and everyday the hurting of our animals. But we always knew we had to endure for them for those we fight for.

13975514_1040813089347216_6482699412720652481_oIn the album I attach there are photos of nearly all of those who were murdered and died, some are missing. And some photos were taken while they were still alive. As I write this I received new information about one more beloved dog poisoned, one more mascot of the neighbourhood, our sweet good Jaran… the vet is on the way.

14054077_1040813196013872_5040415165112728750_nI want to write about the dog called Zijo-Vucko, who was poisoned on 15 August, we never found him, he probably hid somewhere and died alone. Many children grew up with Zijo-vucko, as he was mascot of Babina rijeka in Zenica for many years, he was always smiling, never learned how to properly bark, was a playful teddy bear. His photos are with two kids, see he was always smiling.

I write of Blacky whose photos I did not make, she was an old smart girl, she closed her eyes on Monday. We though on Sunday that she was hit by a car and arranged all for her transport to Sarajevo on Monday, but it became all too clear that it was poisoning, but now we understand her symptoms, and all pieces of the puzzle are there, she was lying on the ground could not walk, and in her eyes she was looking at us and saying goodbye. Now that I look back at that day, she truly was saying goodbye but we did not see it.

Maza was another old 9 years old girl who died on 17 August, and was poisoned on 16 August. I saw her last time on Sunday 14 August and told our friend Banjamin that we should cut her hair on her tail. I will never see her again, and never have a chance to cuddle her or to cut hair on her tail. 9 years she lived on the street and was almost domestic and loved by all, never again shall Maza be wagging her tail and walking slowly towards us for her portion of daily love and cuddling. 9 years we cherish.

14079690_1040812756013916_8525896089266597740_nMore dogs died on Monday and Tuesday this week, another girl Zuta was lying dead in the bushes the whole day before we found her.

Black-whitey was found dead on the street, another puppy was found in agony with blood coming out of his mouth. On 11 and 12 August two more beloved dogs died, one was just found dead and another one our Jedini was put to sleep to prevent agony of internal bleeding. He was not alone, he died in our arms.

I want to write about them to honour them so they are never ever forgotten. I need to scream and to raise my voice loud, loudest I can, for them as we owe to them. I am sorry we could not save them from horrible people from evil and malice, I hope we will deserve a place in heaven together with you.

14034818_1040812919347233_4392659448088706234_nWe still fight for life of Sreckica who is Sarajevo Clinic, and for lives of Bingo, Lily and Kiki who are on infusion and receiving vitamin K, C, antibiotics. They are fighting. There were all much loved dogs, friends of many families and their children. And now we start to fight for our Jaran.

Zenica will never be the same.

14088644_1040812906013901_59864122690782985_nWe deal with an invisible enemy, everybody is silent, we will keep exerting pressure on the police and prosecutors office to run proper investigations, but it is hard without proper witnesses.

I feel numb, I am crying as i write this, and i feel parts of me are dying. To face this evil and to feel powerless. But then, we have to be strong and fight and have strength to stop this madness and this evil for our dogs, dogs we had as friends for so many many years. We must not be defeated and we must show that no evil can go unpunished.

13939293_1040878509340674_662223141128217924_nPlease share this and help spread the word of the crime in Zenica, crime on innocent dogs, crimes of most monstrous killing by poisoning. Speak for us and share. Speak for the dogs in Zenica, dogs who for so many years were living on the streets. Evil people live amongst us, we must stop them and this evil. We have the courage to speak up, plse help us, help us in the name of Vucko, Zuta, Crno Bijeli, Blecky, Maza, bebi, Curica, Jedini, malena and all others.

And please help us keep safe Jaran, Bingo, Lily, Kiki, Sreckica – happy, if they live to survive this poisoning we have to keep them safe. They still need medical attention and medication and we will provide this for all of them we pray it is not late and we pray their bodies are strong enough to endure.

If you can help us help them we would be so grateful. Kiki, Bingo, Crna, Srećkice, Jarane i hope that we can again and soon run together in this world.

Official Investigation Ordered into Donji Vakuf Dog Poisoning

Screen Shot 2015-03-10 at 16.53.01 Written by Dalida Kozlic L.L.B, lawyer and activist, Breza, BiH

Screen Shot 2015-03-10 at 16.50.51More than 50 stray dogs and cats, as well as pets, have been poisoned in Donji Vakuf since the beginning of March. Bodies of dead animals can be found on the streets of Donji Vakuf almost every day. The dogs were poisoned on city streets, in the doorways of buildings, in the city parks. The Veterinary Station of Donji Vakuf has confirmed that poison was used to kill the dogs, given the symptoms. The veterinary station stated that half the dogs killed had been sterilised in a local campaign. The criminal report against an unknown offender or more offenders was filed as a result of committing the criminal offences of torturing and killing of animals as well as provoking general danger on the 12th March.

I presented material evidence as part of the criminal report. The Prosecutor’s office of Canton Central Bosnia has ordered an official investigation of this case.

Untitled2Criminal activities of the illegal and notorious group of dog catchers of P. C. “Lokom” Ltd. Novi Grad are being investigated. Unfortunately, due to the slow judicial system dog catchers are still active in Sarajevo. It is obvious that huge legal and media campaign has influenced on judicial authorities to start investigating this criminal group, but it is important to try to influence the Bosnian judicial authorities to forbid the activities of dog catchers. Because of this, it is important for all concerned to contact embassies of foreign countries and to ask them to support our battle against this group of dog catchers. It is not just a battle against dog killers; it is a battle against the corrupt system of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

11046702_10205214142066739_7120927950346993881_oAlso, demonstrations held against illegal dog catchers of P. C. „Lokom“ Ltd. Novi Grad Sarajevo in front of the headquarters of the Municipality of Novi Grad Sarajevo on the 4th of April had a huge media impact. Most of the Bosnian media followed the demonstrations and published the demands of demonstrators. After two years of media darkness and dirty campaigning against stray dogs, rescuers and activists persuaded media publicity to speak about the illegal mass killings of stray animals in Sarajevo as well as in other parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
