Highlights   Vom  Vice-Chairman des AGRI Committee und  Vice-Chairman des Animal Welfare Intergroup, MEP Janusz WOJCIECHOWSKI (ECR)Press Conference. European Parliament , 12th of February, 2014

"This visit proved that signals regarding violent treatment of dogs in these places are true" 

"I did not question the necessity of reduction of stray dogs in Romania but I believe that Romanian authorities have decided to conduct this reduction in an inhumane and ineffective way" 

"It has become a business for private companies that receive a lot of money to catch and put down these animals, or run these shelters - well... shelters is hardly the right word - given what is going on in them. This program costs a lot of money and it means a lot of profit for the companies involved. And so it's not in their interest to solve the problem. They want the problem, the issue to continue for as long as possible so that can earn as much money as possible out of it". 

"The new legislation doesn't solve the problem, it's exacerbating it"
