Stray Dogs in Iraq Continue to be Killed, Romania Killing Stray Animals, and Israel and Fur: What You Can Do

Normally I will not pass on an entire newsletter from another organization, but there are some pretty important actions in here. At the very least I wanted all of you to know about the issues of dogs in Iraq and Romania. As always, and unfortunately, animal abuse occurs in all parts of the world.

Here’s what they sent. There are links to each action.

INTERNATIONAL NEWS LETTER
August 2010
SAVE STRAY DOGS IN IRAQ
International press news reported that teams of veterinarians and police shooters have killed about 58,000 stray dogs in and around the Iraqi capital, over the past 3 months, as part of a campaign to curb an increasing number of strays dogs. Please send a mail and give voice to the animals in Iraq. They need our support. We ask the Iraqi government to stop the inhumane killing of stray dogs and to implement humane methods through education, vaccination, and spaying and neutering.
PLEASE HELP SAVE STRAY ANIMALS IN ROMANIA
OIPA received many emails from concerned citizens about stray animals in Romania. Due to the lack of law for animal protection in Romania many people kill animals without being punished. Everyday many reports are emerging out of Romania regarding the shocking treatment and neglect of their animals.
Mass poisonings, animals being slaughtered, or being lured away to the woods and tortured before being shot. Many mass graves have been discovered.
THE WORLD ASKING ISRAEL TO PASS THE BILL TO BAN FUR
The bill for a total ban on fur trade will be voted on in the Israeli parliament on September 2nd. This influential bill is being put into jeopardy by the extreme lobbying of the fur industry. They are demanding of the Israeli Minister for Trade to fight the bill and without his backing the bill can not be voted in.

HELP TO PROTECT STRAY ANIMALS IN THE SEYCHELLES
Poisoning is common practice to try to handle the problem of stray dogs in Seychelles. The poisoning is undertaken by the environmental authorities and the veterinary services department, both of which are government agencies. Any animals found in a public place are considered to be 'strays' and the authorities can legally lay poisoned bait to eradicate them.
