Euthanasia is a solution for dogs sick, malformed, probably. studied less I think I should change the law , if aggressive dogs, because there are such examples. identifiable and may be euthanasia.

NGOs have an important role and we support such partnership that helps us, but they do not solve the problem, nor would be unfair to expect NGOs to solve a local problem management. do not think all the issues that are of major public concern must be addressed fully by inventing a new law or an ordinance. legislation can be improved, but the problem needs to be solved there which appears in the local community, "said Johannis. dogs have been adopted are euthanized, but remanded the district

This are reduced greatly as the birth rate and, in time, this breed of dog will disappear community close to all of the urban landscape. not happen quickly, because these dogs are quite hardy, but also because many do not want to Sibiu take responsibility for a dog yet feed it along the block, for example, "explained Klaus Johannis.

La Sibiu, dogs is given to international adoption "It quickly disappears species and because there appears to surrounding communities and they have found the solution for stray dogs: ii gather and bring in Sibiu. November we also provide them. longer come at a big house a guest, not a problem. want to reiterate why I think our concept is good: because it is a concept devoid of unnecessary barbarism. Heard position statements in the media as to kill all stray dogs. approach does not seem right for the period in which we live, let alone the fact that they tried in many cities, if I remember correctly a few years ago even in Bucharest, without any success, "said Klaus Johannis.
