Bellow there are a couple of links from local and national mass-media illustrating the slaughter of strays from Tg-Jiu in past years and despite all these cruelties the number of strays is the same or even bigger.
SUBJECT : City of Forbach, please help Targu-Jiu to become a better city for the stray dogs too. Thank you.
Dear Mayor of Forbach,
Ladies and Gentlemen of the City Council,
We found out that next week a team from Tg-Jiu City Hall, Romania, led by the mayor Florin Carciumaru will come to your city for an official visit. We understand that the aim of the visit is the union between Tg-Jiu and Forbach.
We are amazed that a civilized country like France, who has deep respect for animals and for their welfare would want to accept this union taking into account that Tg-Jiu city, and especially Mayor, Florin Carciumaru, are well known for the lack of respect towards animals and for the disregard of the international animals legislation.
During time, the stray dogs problem had been handled in a very inefficient and inhumane way by the local authorities, who spent huge amount of funds without solving the situation, on the contrary Tg-Jiu city being under the spotlight due to the cruelties committed against stray animals.
Since 2000 the number of strays had never decreased, despite killing policies adopted, on the contrary the number of strays increasing from year to year due to the lack of neutering and adoption policies. Actually it seems that Tg-Jiu authorities have no interest to solve stray dogs problem, in a civilized way, despite all the support received during time from local ngos and even ngos from abroad ( including Brigitte Bardot Foundation).
Unfortunately, in the last weeks, Tg-Jiu is again under national and international mass-media attention for the cruelties happening there daily. Information and photos had been sent also to EU members.
"Eutanasia" started in Gorj county! Mayor from Lelesti , announced public that he brought dogs in forests and called hunters to kill them!!

Tg-Jiu had started a massive slaughter of stray animals by poisoning, for weeks dead bodies are being found continuously on the streets.
Please urge Tg-Jiu mayor to adopt an efficient and humane method of managing stray population and stop using barbaric ways that have proven no result during past years , just a terrible bad image of the city.
