HUNDREDS OF THOUSAND OF DOGS FACING DEATH IN ROMANIA.
Despite that bloodshed the number of stray dogs has continued to increase. It is pure cruelty and stupidity to go down the same path, ignoring the unsuccessful past lessons.

He had moved large number of people from homes with courtyards into apartment building where dogs were not allowed. An unspecified large number of dogs was then abandoned in the streets and they have multiplied throughout the years. Now the dogs are paying with their lives.
