DR. CARLOS NÉGRIER, VETERINARIAN, SPEAKS OUT...

"In our clinic we often receive animals that are deliberately poisoned with the intention to kill them.

We know that the same happens in all clinics in the Algarve because this is a common practice in this part of the country. We think that this is a cruelty and has to be end. Therefore we would be glad to be of assistance to all who could help to change this situation.

We would be pleased to co-operate with all persons, national and international public organisations to drastically reduce or even stop this barbaric custom.

It seems to me that it is essential to involve the municipalities, as they are responsible for the gathering and sheltering of abandoned dogs, a task they neglect altogether and consequently contribute to the uncontrolled growth of that population.

It is important to make the tourist industry aware of its responsibility, as it is often reported that at some times of the year in places like golf courses many animals are poisoned to avoid any "inconvenience" to the tourists. It is also important to request the G.N.R. and the Police to find and charge the culprits. Persons and organisations in the field of animal protection should be called upon to mobilize their contacts to better the situation.

Once again, we would like to state that we are willing to co-operate with anyone who can help change this situation radically in the Algarve and the rest of Portugal."

FALA O DR. CARLOS NÉGRIER, VETERINÁRIO...

Na nossa Clínica recebemos frequentemente animais que foram envenenados com o claro propósito de os matar.

Sabemos que o mesmo acontece em todas as clínicas do Algarve, sendo tal crime prática comum na região.

Cremos que tamanha crueldade deve terminar e portanto colaboraremos com grande satisfação com seja quem for que possa ajudar a mudar este estado de coisas.

Gostaria de colaborar com todas as pessoas e entidades nacionais ou estrangeiras interessadas, para se reduzir drasticamente ou até se conseguir acabar com esta bárbara prática. Parece-me essencial envolver as Câmaras Municipais, que têm ultimamente negligenciado a recolha de canídeos abandonados, cujo número aumentou assim enormemente.

Importa sensibilizar as indústrias hoteleira e turística, pois em redor de recursos de lazer como campos de golf aparecem em certas alturas do ano muitos animais envenenados que assim já não "incomodam" os turistas.

Seria também importante pedir às diversas polícias que apurassem as responsabilidades individuais dos autores de tais crimes.

Convém envolver todos os caridosos com os animais, pois poderiam sensibilizar os demais quanto à situação.

Finalmente, informo mais uma vez que estamos sempre prontos para colaborar com quem quer que seja que possa contribuir para alterar radicalmente esta situação no Algarve como também nas demais regiões de Portugal.
