The European Parliament adopted yesterday in Brussels a written statement initiated among others by Romanian MEPs Daciana Sarbu (PSD) and Adina Valean (PNL). The statement is asking for efficient and correct measures for solving the stray dogs’ issue at European level.
The initiators ask member states to adopt measures such as neutering stray dogs as well as dog control laws, and to promote the principle of responsible pet ownership.
The EP communiqué shows that the action started off from the threat that stray dogs represent to public health and safety in many EU member states, as well as from the inefficient measures that some states have taken, Romania being given as an example in this regard. “The European Commission now has the obligation to propose, based on our recommendations, a set of EU-wide measures that would be uniformly applied,” Adina Valean stated, being quoted by Mediafax.
