In the last 5 days, 4000 healthy animals have been euthanized in the Yambol region of Bulgaria with the presumption that they are sick with African plague.
The woman on the image is an old lady grieving for her herd, which is her only family! She has been taking care of her babies for years! Please read on and raise awareness!
None of the animals have symptoms of the disease, nor there is ANY lab proof of such disease, existing in the region. As reported by a volunteer, who visited the place to protest against this mass killing, the animals are NOT killed humanely, as they suffer for at least 5 minutes after the injection.
Over the weekend, people from all over the country decided to unite and try to save the remaining herds in Sharkovo and the rest of the region. Here is a report from one of them:
“Let me share some information and impressions of my stay in the village of Sharkovo yesterday and today.
First, the veterinarian, who came to protect the animals told us that the French laboratory in which the samples were supposed to be tested does not seem to exist at all!
The doctor and two more women have searched for more information about it, but they found nothing; only an NGO with the same name. It makes us all think that this is a big lie.
The next thing is that there are no observed symptoms in the animals here, and the samples were taken 20-30 days ago. If they were sick, these animals would be in critical condition or dead by now. And none of them actually are!
They did not allow a second sample to be made, nor to put animal vaccines and quarantine that is practiced in cases of such an infection.
The people (if I can call them so), who euthanize the animals have not presented any papers that they are veterinarians, not to mention that most of them are from the illiterate minorities, who have no idea what this is about.
The policemen, who were many, did not show us a single document, one order, or legitimation for these killings. And we demanded this from them many times!
They did not show an order to enter the private property of the people in whose homes they were killing the animals, they just invaded even when the home owners were away. There are no records kept on the number, weight, etc. of the killed animals, for which they must then compensate the owners. Everything is just words, no papers or legitimation!
There are also rumours that they offer people 150-200 leva per killed animal and the EU will pay the state 1000 leva per euthanized animal. Where will the difference go? Why are people being paid for their animals being killed?
People believe the state is aiming to evict the locals by killing the herds they have been taking care of for years, and use the area for refugees for whom they will get paid by the EU. There are different theories, but things are not simple and everyone should think about it and seek information!
The dead bodies of the animals are thrown into a pit that is in the water catchment area of the village, and people will then drink from that water. They are not burned.
To top it all the animals are not killed in a humane way! They suffer at least 5 minutes after the injection, because no anesthetic is done beforehand!
Most of the time there was no Internet Connection, and most protesters think this is done on purpose, so that no information leaks.”
Please don’t be indifferent to these events!
Please share this article and help us spread awareness on what is happening!
The killings continue and they can only be stopped if more people start asking questions and protest against this!
THERE IS NO LEGITIMATE DOCUMENT OR PROOF SHOWING THERE IS A DISEASE IN THE AREA, NOR THERE IS A LAWFUL REASON TO KILL THESE ANIMALS
