The incident took place in a residential courtyard of Gatovo agrogorodok March 1. On the street Metallurgical appeared a dog — collar and non-aggressive species. However, the Chairman of the housing cooperative decided that it's a stray and rabid and called the police, writes channel.
Militiamen for a long time with the animal without further ADO, and just decided to shoot. Releasing the dog a few bullets, the police waited until one dies, put in a bag and taken away. Everything happened in the eyes of local residents, including children.
Witnesses posted a video of the shooting of a dog on the Internet.
Pictures went to the communities and caused indignation of users of social networks.
The Internet is an extremely negative attitude to the act of the policemen, drawing attention to the fact that they had no right to do shooting animals. Especially in front of a building, in front of people. Many have accused the Chairman of the housing cooperative.
Belsat.eu wanted to ask Svetlana Stepurko why she decided to call the police, not animal control and according to which signs are realized that the dog is rabid. However, all that we heard, she wants nothing to comment on.
"Bloody run and frightened children"
Meanwhile, the Internet appeared "eyewitness accounts" about the bloody four-legged, who was bitten by two small dogs and three girls. But where are these girls with dogs, no one saw or heard.
Local resident Ales told us that he had asked the affected contacts and vet that they would go to the owners allegedly bitten by the pet, but injured no one knows.
"People here who think this situation is anti-human, virtually no. Everyone is afraid to go against the police and the President or do not know. For all here is the norm. Here next to private homes, it seems to me that the dog came from. Previously, it won't be seen here. I think that even more than an hour she stayed in our yard."
Words Alesya confirms the animal rights activist Lyudmila Mikhnevich. The woman initiated the collection of signatures under a collective appeal to Prosecutor's office and the Investigative Committee. Just signed up 140 people.
"It was a message from the Internet with video, without further comment. We were given the opportunity to see and evaluate yourself. Many openly frightened that the actions directed against the police. Someone came, but did not sign. I do often face similar issues. Silent and no problem. Like an ostrich: head in the sand. But the problem will not disappear."
Lyudmila Mikhnevich said that from the point of view of the law the police should be held criminally responsible.
"With regard to cruelty to animals, unfortunately, our legislation is not yet a clear statement of what it is. Sometimes to prosecute is very difficult, but in the classification of cases takes into account the nuances.
I think that in this case they were. That the case was heard in a criminal, you need to confirm that everything happened in front of minors. One child fell into the frame. In addition, the Chairman of the cooperative in advance informed the residents about the arrival of the police.
Honestly, I don't know what was waiting for the Chairman from the police. And maybe, she thought. Supposedly, there is a problem it should be solved in the simplest and most affordable way. And whether it is lawful and right, probably no one thought of that."
The lawyer also notes that in this town of Gatovo, many live in the private sector with a leaky fences. Often dogs come to clavigo.
"Few of the owners are looking for pet and returns home. They believe that they will come. If you don't come back — give birth to a new one. Therefore, many such dogs, respectively, there are people who are afraid of them and willing to do anything to avoid a meeting. In Belarus for clavigo the penalty, but use it very rarely. The kids played with the dog, seen on the collar phone number. But none of the children have any desire to call it."
To help the people and wanted volunteers from the "Aegis", but no one dared to make a statement.
"We have offered legal assistance to witnesses, but no one left. People are afraid to sign something. But these petitions and statements do and do not give. We wrote the application in Prosecutor's office, filed 13 Mar. They have two weeks to respond. People are afraid of everything."
Evaluation of the canine
Professional dog handler and dog trainer Yegor Ivanov watched the video of the shooting of shepherd, and expressed my opinion.
"At first glance, it is difficult to determine whether the dog is infected with rabies. It all depends on the form and stage of disease. But the actions of police officers there is no excuse. It is necessary in such situations, experts to call, the police here are incompetent. Video of poor quality, it is not clear exactly what happened there. It is evident that the dog was just moving in their direction.
An eerie sight, one might not wish that the animal has undergone. They, of course, easier to make a fire than humanely solve the problem."
