Update 09/01/09 – Skopje – the animals Death Camp
The latest information being supplied to us by contacts in the area is very disturbing.
We are being informed that employees (dogcatchers) who work for ‘JP Komunalec’ are hunting around for dogs in private, unmarked vehicles, armed with baseball bats.
Eyewitnesses inform that all of the time, there is a huge amount of dogcatching taking place in different locations. But these dogs are never seen afterwards at the pound; so can only be assumed that they are being being taken elsewhere and immediately killed in secret. It is understood that the bodies may be being disposed of in a pit on landfill Drisla.
Activists are currently very busy dealing with the care of very many little dogs who have been taken from Vardariste pound and who are looking for re-homing.
Many of these little dogs taken from Vardariste pound have ‘parvo virus’ caused by the unhygenic situation and disgusting conditions at the Vardariste pound, aunder the control and responsibility of an authority, government and city Mayor who simply do not care about animal welfare.
As there are no proper attempts to clean and disinfect the pound, or to care for any of the animals at the pound, is it any wonder that animals are becoming sick and dying.
Possibly death from parvo virus is exactly what is wanted and an excuse that the authorities and Mayor can use to ‘cover’ up the additional deaths of many animals; if they cared, the city authorities and mayor would ensure that the facility was properly cleaned and disinfected to prevent the spread of such disease.
Vardariste pound is still undertaking the mass killings which it has now become globally famous for – the animals ‘death camp’.
More information and hopefully some pictures to come very soon.
