Societies for the protection of animals published a letter on social networks to remind the citizens of Serbia that it was Dragan Djilas, the mayor of Belgrade who banned the long-standing practice of catching and brutally killing stray animals and by doing so Belgrade became one of only a few cities in Europe and beyond where it is against the law to kill stray animals.
Society for the protection of animals "Help Animals", Society for the protection of animals and development of civic consciousness "Phoenix" and Society for the protection of animals and the environment "Humans for Animals" have sent the same letter to many foreign embassies in Belgrade and to foreign organisations for the protection of animals, as well as to international organisations for human rights.
Dear citizens of Serbia,
The two-month performance at the biggest possible amphitheatre called the "election campaign" is currently taking place in Serbia.
The election campaign is a performance directed by self-interested parties who use modern technology in order to manipulate those who are less informed and politically savvy.
Dear voters, we are addressing you on behalf of those who do not have a say in the elections – our loyal and trusting friends – dogs and cats.
In the name of millions of dogs and cats (7.000 - 10.000 every year) killed in the killing station Ovcha until 2009 (http://www.helpanimals.
Please remember that it was Mr Dragan Djilas, the mayor of Belgrade who banned the killing of dog and cats and by doing so Belgrade became one of only a few cities in Europe and beyond where it is against the law to kill stray animals.
Those who pursue their personal agendas and use lies to achieve their goals in the election campaign will have the devil to pay.
‘Save Djilas’, he pledged the life of dogs and cats and in his next mandate he will solve the problem of other abused animals that we so often meet on the streets of Belgrade.
