Serbia: EXPOSED – The Killer Vet of Novi Sad

 

EXPOSED – THE KILLER VET OF NOVI SAD

 

This is Veterinarian Nicholas Mišljenović.

Question – What is the aim of a veterinarian ? – to save animals lives and help them in their time of most need ?

WRONG; for some Serbian veterinarians such as Mišljenović.

This man is now exposed as the veterinarian who kills 3,000 to 4,000 cats and dogs every year in the Serbian city of Novi Sad (NS).

The unfortunate stray animals which are caught on the NS streets are held for only three (3) days before they are killed by this man.  This is in direct contravention to existing Serbian legislation since the end of 2005; please see the SAV link from January 2010 below.

For further detailed information relating to the decision by the Serbian Constitutional Court  that from 02/10/2005, the killing of stray dogs and cats in Serbia is forbidden; see our old post from January 2010:

http://serbiananimalsvoice.wordpress.com/2010/01/25/serbia-constitutional-court-of-serbia-says-that-the-killing-of-stray-dogs-and-cats-in-serbia-is-forbidden-from-02102005/

All that can be said about this situation is that it very typical throughout Serbia.  Serbian government and authorities do NOT make any attempt to enforce existing nation laws when it comes to animals and animal welfare.  The system is corrupt and those involved with ignoring the enforcement of national legislation are also corrupt.

None of these veterinarians are up to date with the current legislation for animals, despite it being in existence since 2005, and neither do they want to be up tod ate, because they are still making money out of undertaking illegal activities.

As can be shown in the article and the photographs, T-61 is still being used to kill the animals after three days.  Under Article 7, the Law for Animal Welfare, the killing of stray dogs and cats is forbidden.  T-61 has been banned from use in several countries, as it causes respiratory paralysis – the unfortunate animal, when injected, experiences suffocation as the lungs become paralysed and cannot function.

Article 15 of the Law for Animal Welfare states that it is ONLY LAWFUL to euthanise dogs or cats if they have an incurable illness or in the final stages of an incurable disease.

Below is the text of an excellent investigation just completed by Serbian Radio 021.  Their investigation lifts the lid on the killing of stray animals in Novi Sad.

Copies of this article will now be sent to contacts SAV have within the EU Legal Affairs department of DG SANCO, as corruption and non compliance with the enforcement of national legislation are two issues that the EU does not wish to see.  Serbia wishes to become an EU member state, but with its own inability to enforce (Serbian) national animal welfare legislation some six years after it was legally introduced; and which has been validated by the Constitutional Court of Serbia, it could be said that it is better if Serbia continues to remain outside of the EU.

Who controls the killing of animals in the dog catcher?

Prema informacijama do kojih je došao Radio 021, ne postoji nikakva stručna služba koja nadgleda rad veterinara koji ubijaju životinje u novosadskom šinteraju.

According to information obtained by Radio 021, there is no technical division that oversees the work of veterinarians who kill animals in the NS sinter. Na tenderu za izbor firme koja će se baviti eutanaziranjem pasa i mačaka lutalica u Novom Sadu, ovaj posao dobila je veterinarska stanica “Košarčić” iz Futoga.

The tender for the selection of firms to deal with the euthanasia of dogs and cats in Novi Sad, the job got the veterinary station “Košarčić from Futog. Kako za naš radio kaže jedan od veterinara zaposlenih u ovoj ustanovi, Nikola Mišljenović, dok životinjama ubrizgava smrtonosnu injekciju prisutni su samo dežurni poslovođa iz “Čistoće” i on. As our radio said one of the veterinarians employed in this institution, Nicholas Mišljenović, while animals injected lethal injection are present only on duty supervisor of the “Purity” and on.

“Moj rad prilikom eutanaziranja životinja kontroliše moja medicinska, veterinarska etika. Tu je još prisutan i službenik “Čistoće” koji je dežuran kada nas pozovu”, kaže ovaj veterinar. “My work during the euthanasia of animals controlled by my medical, veterinary ethics. There is still present and an official” purity “that was on duty when you call us,” says the vet.

Mišljenović navodi da ceo proces traje kratko i bezbolno za samu životinju, a količina sredstva za eutanaziju se procenjuje odokativno.Mišljenović states that the whole process takes a short and painless for the animal itself, and the amount of funds for euthanasia is estimated odokativno. Prema njegovim rečima, od ubrizgavanja smrtonosne injekcije do uginuća životinje prođe svega nekoliko sekundi. According to him, the injection of lethal injections to death of animal passes a few seconds.

“Psa koga niko ne udomi za ta tri dana koliko se zadržavaju u objektu za privremeni smeštaj najpre izvlačim na ivicu kaveza i otprilike procenim koliko pas može biti težak, kako bi znao koju količinu injekcije treba da koristim.U toj proceni skoro nikad ne omanem, jer se ovim poslom bavim već dosta dugo. Tada se psu daje injekcija koja se ubrizgava između rebara, u plućno tkivo, a životinja ugine mirno par sekundi nakon toga”, kaže Mišljenović.

“The dog when no one udomi for the three days that remain in the house for temporary accommodation are taken out first on the edge of the cage and approximately evaluate how a dog can be difficult to know what amount of injection should koristim.U these estimates almost never wrong, because I do this job long enough. Then he gives the dog a shot that is injected between the ribs, the lung tissue, and the animal died peacefully a few seconds after that, “says Mišljenović.

Sa druge strane, predsednica Udruženja za zaštitu zivotinja Novi Sad,Lana Đorđević navodi da oni sumnjaju da se iza zatvorenih vrata uhvaćeni psi ipak ubijaju na nehuman način.On the other hand, the president of the animal protection Novi Sad, Lana Đorđević said that they suspect that behind closed doors still caught killing dogs in an inhumane way.

“Ja sam pre nego što smo registrovali udruženje putem elektronske pošte tražila dozvolu da uđem u šinteraj,odgovor je bio da će mi javiti kada preduzeće to odobri.Naravno,to se nikad nije dogodilo. Šta drugo,nego da posumnjam da se tamo dešavaju neke stvari koje žele da sakriju od javnosti.”,kaže ova aktivistkinja za prava životinja. “I am before we register the organization via e-mail asked for permission to enter the pound, the answer was to tell me when to odobri.Naravno company, it never happened. What else but to suspect that there occur some things you want to hide from the public. “says the activist for animal rights.

Veterinar Mišljenović ipak tvrdi da se sve životinje eutanaziraju sredstvom T-61 i da za to postoje dokazi, kao i da su spekulacije da se za ubijanje koriste motke ili deterdžent neosnovane i predstavljaju atak na veterinarsku profesiju i etiku.Veterinarian Mišljenović still hard to euthanize all animals means T-61 and that there is evidence, as well as speculation that the killer used poles or detergent baseless and represent an attack on the veterinary profession and ethics. Mišljenović navodi da nikad ne bi sebi dozvolio da vidi životinju da pati. Mišljenović states that would never have allowed myself to see an animal suffer.

“Tu nema nikakve agonije, nikakve dreke, nikakve patnje. Ja prvi nikad ne bih mogao da podnesem da gledam životinju kako umire u mukama. Metod kojim se eutanaziraju životinje je brz, human i tih, i jedini na koji bih pristao”, tvrdi ovaj veterinar.“There’s no agony, no crap, no suffering. I am the first ever I could not stand to watch an animal die in agony. The method by which to euthanize animals is a fast, humane and peaceful, and the only way that I agreed,” said the vet.

Jedna flašica pomenutog sredstva za eutanaziju košta oko 3.000 dinara.

One bottle of the said funds for euthanasia costs about 3,000 dinars. Da li se ovo sredstvo zaista koristi za ubijanje lutalica, ostaje nam samo da verujemo na reč veterinarima koji se time bave. Does this tool really used to kill stray, we can only believe a word vets who do that. (Miodrag Sovilj) (Miodrag Sovilj)

SAV Comment:

Nicholas Mišljenović, maybe now the EU should review your situation.

Your own government and authorities are incapable of enforcing national legislation which has been documented for some six years now. 

A nation showing the “Enforcement of the rule of law” is a basic requirement of EU accession (membership).  Serbia shows that it is incapable of enforcing its own national legislation for animal welfare.  Why ? – corruption or a failure of the authorities and people in government ?

Maybe time for the EU Legal Affairs department to review the case and provide us with their expert opinion.
