The Ukraine and Poland may have won the bid to hose the 2012 UEFA European Football Championship, but citizens are not aware of one vile preparation that has been arranged to accomodate the thousands of people that will attend the tournament - the slaughtering of stray animals.
Animal activists in the Ukraine have spent years protesting about the inhumane practices used to solve the stay animal problems there. However, their pleas have gone down with little, if no, effect. The football tournament that is rapidly approaching has sadly pushed thing over the edge.
Previously, the stray animals there (cats and dogs) were killed using the illegal poison ditiline which paralyzed their respitatory muscles. Now the stray problem is of urgency because of the tournament, and are now using a "more modern, environmentally safe" way of tackeling the problem: the strays are captured and taken to a mobile crematorium. The animals are thrown into a 900 degree oven and burned alive.
Ukrainian animal rights activists have been protesting against this for more than a year, and operation director of the UEFA, Martin Kallen, has publicly stated that he doesn't approve of any methods of animal control that constitute animal cruelty. Yet no investigation of the burnings have taken place, in face,Animal Activists in Ukraine are furious that nothing is being done about these mass animal killings. Foreign fans are trying to mobilize and boycott Ukraine’s involvment in the tournament, but no moves have been made to do so. Activists are desperately trying to save the stray dogs and cats of the Ukraine. (UEFA president) said that he was pleased with the Ukraine's progress!
