Romanian Stray Dogs: EU Commission wrote to Romania

EU Commissioner Tonio Borg has sent on 1st October a letter to Mr NICOLĂESCU GHEORGHE-EUGEN, the Romanian Minister for Health who is responsible for controlling stray dogs in Romania.
The letter aims to remind Romania to its international obligations, and in particular the OIE guidelines on stray dogs population management which states that killing should only be a last resort solution. The letter also refers to Article 13 TFEU considering all animals as sentient beings.

The letter is published on DG SANCO’s webpage, here : http://ec.europa.eu/commission_2010-2014/borg/docs/01102013_letter_stray_dogs.pdf
