On the 1st of October, Friday, the letter with legal explanation of animal defender´s position was sent to Chairman of Novosibirsk city council Boltenko Nadezhda Nikolaevna. There we put some facts which need to be noticed by the deputes before they would make any decisions and amendments to the Rules of maintenance of dogs and cats in Novosibirsk.
First of all, we proclaim the opinions of the independent experts in criminal and administrative rights according those amendments. Second, we remind about the quantity and the quality of collected signatures: everyone who signed is against legalization of those amendments and against those methods that have been used to reduce the population of stray animals; they are not effective and not human. Third, one more time we show our position and our option for solving the problem. We also asked Nadezhda Nikolaevna to explain our point of view in front of the depute, and we are sure that it would be heard; unfortunately the opinion of animal defenders, the same as habitants of Novosibirsk and voters is ignored by the depute and the communicating is a way too bad. We are hoping that Nadezhda Nikolaevna would be helpful and would find the way to pay attention to this question.
The session of deputies of the constant commission housing municipal services will take place on the 6th of October, Wednesday, at 2.00 pm, in the small hall of The Town Hall. The question about those amendments would be the first to listen and to discuss. We would like to invite journalists to present.
