DOG FARM SOPRON HUNGARY 2006 PLEASE REACT
Date: Fri, 5 May 2006 11:45:34 +0200 From: ebugatta
By "MTI" a hungarian news agent:
The owner of the dog breeding site at Sopron has been officially charged with cruelty to animals.
In the case of the infamous Sopron dogs the Prosecutor's Office has filed an official charge at the Sopron Courts.
"The defendant is the 63 year old owner of the breeding site" - said the Head Prosecutor of Györ-Moson-Sopron County. According to László Horváth during the course of the procedures the Prosecutor's Office investigated the conditions under which the dogs were kept and the treatment of the animals.
He added "There were appalling conditions at the site".
At the outset of the investigations 209 dogs were vegetating at the site.
The dog breeder carried on unauthorised breeding experiments with the animals: he wanted to achieve a "improved" mudi breed. In relation to this inbreeding took place resulting in the offspring being born with serious health impairment and genetic problems.
Animal rights organisations held a demonstration in March for the closing of the site, demanding that the owner be held accountable.
During the course of the investigations the animals were seized. The dogs were taken to various shelters from the Sopron site. The Sopron Prosecutor's Office has made a motion for the dogs to be confiscated.
The criminal suit will commence on 31st March at the Sopron Courts of Law. "The perpetrator of cruelty to animals can be sentenced to a maximum of 2 years imprisonment" - said the County Head Prosecutor.
"The dogs are in safe hands, I get a lot of informations about them.
When you have time look at it in our new forum!"
!!Saturdays: April May 06 Ebugatta television program will broadcast a series on the Sopron dogs.
The program can be seen live at www.magyaratv.hu at 12.05 pm Saturdays.!!

To all of those who are helping us or interested!
To this day 190 dogs have been placed in 21 animal shelters in Hungary.
We have given all shelters financial and material aid from the donations, thus these dogs are presently recuperating from their terrible ordeals under consolidated conditions.
The police are still conducting investigations pertaining to the case, we are waiting for them to hand over the case to the Prosecutor's Office as, until this is going on the dogs cannot be rehomed or even neutered, they must remain at the shelters. Luckily I can report that the majority are now accepting human contact, and food . . .
A large number of volunteers are visiting the shelters to help with socialization of the dogs.
If any one wishes to help, at the moment they can do so by writing to
the Sopron Prosecutor's Office or to the Minister of Interior,
Ms Monika Lamperth email@example.com

to urge them to finalize the procedure as soon as possible in order that the dogs can be neutered and permanently rehomed and that their torturer's punishment should become a precedent in Hungary.
Since we do not know how long the court procedures will take at the Hungarian Courts we are still very much in need of your donations.
However we would like to ask that all who wish to give financial support for the care of the dogs should only do so through the bank account given below. This is the only one we can follow through in order to ensure that the donations reach the place you had originally intended them for!

THE HOARDER PHENOMENON
People working with animals, either for profit or protective motives, might develop into collectors of animals loosing their focus on animal welfare and eventually turn into animal abusers.

Status 1 MARCH 2006
After a demonstration of about 70 mostly Hungarian people is achieved that the owner will hand over all dogs - except 50 - to the volonteers of the organisation and the remaining dogs are allowed to be fed by them!
It is a pity - or maybe we should say thank God - that Hungarian animal protectors have appeared, who were not seen before. However, they resent the interference by foreigners, but where were they in the past 4 years for so long has lasted this situation!
Again I call you to please contact - if possible directly when you speak German - Mrs. Wesenauer in Austria 0036 30 34 27 694 for any help you can offer for this dog rescue.
The present responsible mayor is Walter Deszo and the residing notary Dr. Galambos György is guilty as well as he new the circumstances, excused the veterinarian who claimed that all was OK and was deaf to complaints.
We would be pleased if you would send them a crictical letter by FAX: 0036 99 515163 and/or Email: email@example.com
Note from Action Against Poisoning:
We are delighted to hear that most dogs will be free and in charge of animal protectors.
However we should fight for all dogs to be taken from a man who has proven to be unfit for keeping dogs. This man should be forbidden to come near any animal (or human being for that matter) at all for the rest of his life.
So continue this action as it is not yet finished!

CRY FOR HELP
Please help us in the following problem, which we cannot handle in spite of the indignation among the animal fanciers!
Letter from a viewer to the Ebugatta program:
I'm helpless as I visited a fearful place today and I don't know who shall I turn to, that's why I write to you. All this started with that two dogs of my friend lost and we went to find them. We heard about a man, who has more than one hundred dogs in a vineyard, we hoped to get some information from him about our dogs. We went to see that place and we faced awful conditions. I'm still shocked by the scene as more than hundred dogs on chains, in horrible conditions. We mostly saw Hungarian breeds, three retrievers, kuvasz and about 80 mudis and their inbred descendants. Everywhere dogs, swill ont he ground for them, dead bodies of dogs on the dog houses. It's even dread to write...
"Knowing that animals creatures able to feel, suffer and be happy, our moral obligation to respect them and ensure their well-being" this is also included in the Hungarian Animal Protection Act, we was fighting for the parliamentary decision for particular protection of the indigenous Hungarian breeds for years.
There were several reports and complaints by the inhabitants and neigbhours, but still nothing happened to save these animals.
We reported this man from cruelty to animaly with photos and videos by proof on the Police Headquarters 15th February, 2006, and on the Sopron Police also.
We visited the spot with an ethologist, a vet, leaders of the breed clubs and a TV staff and witnessed awful conditions. None of the dogs had water to drink, they was on 20-30 cm chains, without kennels. The territory was covered by 30-40 cm mud, and some of the dogs are living in apathy. Their food is the swill shed on the mud and they drink their own urine.
The Police worked rapidly and led by Dr Csaba Reinhoffer light colonel they made a domiciliary visit, and found 61 frozen dog carcasses in refrigerants.
During the police procedure by active help of media, journalists and animal fanciers of the internet we try to rescue these animals from these terrible conditions which turned out to has been started 4 years ago and the registrar of Sopron qualified this case after the several reports of the habitants and the animal welfare authority as a minor offence.
Dr. József Dobos , the registrar of Sopron does not do this as he says all the dogs are vaccinated according to the veterinary examinations and they has satisfactory conditions, nothing justifies the close of the plant.
About 180 unsocialised, wild dogs are scampering about on the yard, there are dead bodies of dogs in the fridge of the owner!
I do think that this must be stopped, nothing can motivate cruelty to animals and keeping them this way. None of the Hungarian breeds, which are national treasures of us deserves such a life!
We find them owners after veterinary observation, attending and getting microchip.
We must not let them suffer!
You find videos, articles, letters and photos about all of that, which shows why is it cruelty to animals.
We welcome everybody to demonstrate with us and the Hungarian Kennel Club with motto "dog farm Sopron" to persuade Mrs. Monika Lamperth, Interior Minister of Hungary to punish a Hungarian man who handle animals this way email@example.com
We organize demonstration on 1st March 2006 in Sopron and request immediate measures of authorities. We also demonstrate for punishment of the owner of the dog farm and the tormentors of animals.
You find more details here: www.ebugatta.hu
and in dogforums. If you can help us please write to the firstname.lastname@example.org
and we give you any kind of information about this case here.
Let's work together for the protection of the rare Hungarian breeds!
