Relapse. In Odessa, animals die again. The police do not recognize the fact of persecution.
Yesterday, Odessa animal advocates said that in the village of Kotovskogo, the persecution of dogs resumed. According to Irina Momot, vice president of the Union for the Protection of Animals, five domestic dogs were killed in Bocharov Street, Makhachkala Street and others. Recall that in the summer and autumn of last year, animals perished in this area almost every day. Symptoms were always similar and resembled the effects of poisoning.
Odessa police, where the townspeople repeatedly appealed for help after the death of animals, denies the very fact of poisoning. As the head of the department of internal affairs Eduard Dobrynin repeatedly stated, a thorough check was carried out. But the information that people deliberately kill dogs and cats, has not been confirmed. The police do not have any evidence that the dogs were specially poisoned. And so, there is no reason to initiate a criminal case.
Defenders of animals are convinced of their rightness, but recognize that evidence is still not enough. "The expertise that needs to be done is a very laborious and expensive procedure, which makes our investigation difficult," said Irina Momot, "However, in the next few days we expect results on the poisoning of dogs that occurred in the village of Kotovsky in the fall. We just get rid of it if we have an appropriate verdict of experts on hand. "
COSTS FOR ANIMAL HOSPITAL MAY BE CUTTING
The only place where abandoned dogs and mongrels can find shelter, in the city remains shelter "The Ark". However, employees of the urban shelter for homeless animals are afraid that they can remain without financial support from the budget.
The last two years the mayor's office annually allocated 120 thousand hryvnias for keeping the four-footed ward of the orphanage. Money, of course, was not enough, but stable payments allowed the shelter to contain about 150 dogs and 40 cats. "This year, funding from the city budget has been discontinued, shelter should be kept at the expense of the funds of the environmental fund," said Irina Momot, vice president of the Union for the Protection of Animals. "The day before yesterday, we received an official letter from the environmental safety department (it oversees the environmental fund) Was promised, but to what extent and in what time frame, it is not known, therefore we are afraid that the money will be given much less.
