Stray animal disposal practices in Romania

Question for written answer E-010815-13
to the Commission
Rule 117
Charles Tannock (ECR)

I have been contacted by numerous London constituents with regard to the alleged Romanian policy concerning the extermination of Romania’s stray dogs, and I understand the large numbers of strays is a significant problem in that country.

Can the Commission confirm whether it has any jurisdiction in the disposal of stray animals under the animal welfare provisions of the EU acquis and, if so, can it intervene in any way to ensure that, if this policy is to be implemented, it is done in the most humanely way possible in Romania or in any other Member State for that matter?
