On the 25th September 2013, the Constitutional Court authorised the mass killing of Romania’s stray dogs.
Under this new law, dogs will be kept in detention for 14 days in overcrowded dog shelters, and then killed if they are not claimed or adopted. This means that tens of thousands of dogs will be killed in the coming weeks.
History shows us that mass killing is not the solution. Stray and roaming dog populations can be managed in ways that are both effective and humane.
