Boykott Bulgarian Officials Supporting Systematic Abuse of Cats and Dogs

by Emil Kuzmanov Sunday, Dec. 03, 2006 at 4:13 PM 18 Yanko Sofiiski Voivoda Str., 1164 Sofia, Bulgaria

The missing legal pet control in Bulgaria is replaced by criminal collection and abuse of the great number of healthy animals. That leads to the real reduction of both increasing populations. Bulgarian institutions are colluding with black-marketers in their revolting industry.

Dear Supporters,

Since 1990 in Bulgaria there is an ongoing process of unrestricted mass breeding, offering and straying of unregistered cats and dogs; their mass disappearing as a result of "pick & collection" and last but not least their systematic abuse. Cat and dog lovers are continuously misinformed and misled about the cruel destiny for the better part of the "steady-bred" animals and to their end use.

In the protection of pet-animals field up to May 1st of 2006 in Bulgaria there were in effect the obligations of the 1999 Veterinarian Act. In year 2000 it was appended the Governmental Rule and some of the appendices are in effect in the present.

In 2004 Bulgaria ratified The European Convention for the Protection of Pet Animals, binding itself to make an extra and effective effort of bringing about improvements in this field.

In 2005 the Bulgarian Parliament voted in a new Veterinary Act, which prohibits laboratory use of owned, stray and feral cats and dogs, as well as reduction of population number by killing.

Can't go without mention it again, but in a few weeks time Bulgaria will become a full EU member and will have to comply with the European Commission's Regulation №998/2003.

In the meantime we are witnessing lack of any whatsoever movement by the Bulgarian bureaucrats in those directions. The Convention and Act provisions are totally ignored by the Government and municipalities alike. Their ignorance is left without reproof by the Bulgarian Parliament.

In 2003 and 2004 Animal Programs has pointed out to the Government numerous simple but effective measures, some included and some not in the active at that time ordinance, but no adequate reaction followed. In February 2006 we've offered to Sofia's newly elected Mayor Mr. Boyko Borissov to meet and review the circumstances connected with the huge number of abandoned dogs appearing freely on the streets; but he declined.

So the missing legal control is replaced by criminal collection and abuse of the great number of healthy animals. That leads to the real reduction of both increasing populations. The Ministry of Interior and Ministry of Finance stay tolerant to the illegal traffic and money laundering. It will make us think more so that Bulgarian institutions are colluding with black-marketers in their revolting industry.

I alone can't change the strangely kept by Bulgarian institutions trend. Here all my efforts are being thwarted and ignored. Here and why I call on the world community and concerned institutions alike to boycott the meetings of all Bulgarian officials abroad and also limit visits to Bulgaria till enforcement of the Low takes an effect.

I plead to you: Please, limit your official contacts of Bulgarian authorities and avoid the unofficial ones. I dare all world known artists, actors, musicians, entertainers and scientists to shun away Bulgarian venues too.

I appeal to be avoided organization and visiting of international forums in Bulgaria, all congresses, seminars, conferentions, symposiums, expositions and sport contests.

I urge you to write reproachful and demanding letters, faxes and e-mails to the following Bulgarian officials responsible for this disaster situation (please, see below short list of contacts).
