And Braşov should be more responsible

This underlined the fact that Brasov has to be more responsible, because the streets are not strays refill. "abroad, no one is allowed to leave the dog in the street, but we still have major problems in this sense. These stray dogs do not fall from the sky, but still end up on the streets of negligence. It is also in the interest of the animals to be microchipped, and neutered, so not to have health problems later, such as the occurrence of tumors. However, if a dog is microchipped and lost is found more easily. If you love a dog and have to be responsible. Do not leave the block and then do 11 chickens, as I had a recent case. In vain they collect if they multiply continuously. We have to stop, not to produce dogs. I think we all want a city with no dogs on the streets, but without euthanasia " , explained Lapis.
