It's happened again.
The lady's lawyer proposed instead to vaccinate the puppy and put it in quarantine, but the GE Veterinäramt would not allow that - and the court has agreed.

So unless there is a miracle poor Fredy puppy will be killed on Saturday.

---

I'm starting to think that even bringing back mandatory owner training is not enough. The root of the problem seems to be that some people simply do not believe that laws apply to them. I honestly don't know how that can be fixed.

Poor, poor puppy.



Off to find a brick wall against which to bang my head...
I read that last yesterday evening and it kept me awake half the night; it truly doesn't bear thinking about.

I get why the VetAmt needs to rule out the slightest possible risk, and I get why they feel the need to make an example.... but I just can't get my head round how any vet could actually do the deed, much like the kill shelters in the US. Surely to doG they should seek out any other way than this?

And as for the importer.... she was given the opportunity to effectively take the pup back to where he came from (...and maybe get him jabbed up and imported legally?). Whisky Tango Foxtrot did she not take the option? Did she simply not believe they'd do it? She should have the book thrown at her for animal cruelty.

I'm so so cross about this

ETA: why could nobody else have taken the pup back???

There's many things I'd call the owner, lady isn't among them.

That wouldn't influence the need to quarantine (for ?three? months), which costs 50-100 per day (the duration, and the actual daily cost was mentioned in an earlier post/thread).

The big cost isn't some fine but the quarantine. That makes for an exceptionally costly new dog. Especially if it should turn out to indeed be infected.

The quarantine fee stops accruing when the puppy dies

I am a bit hardened to the concept of unwanted pets being put down. A childhood friend worked for a couple of years at the ASPCA in Manhattan. I had occasion to see the truck that arrived daily to take the cadavers of euthanised animals to a rendering factory.

Any bat can bite a human, not just the blood sucking kinds. Usually when they end up in people’s houses by accident and get scared.
Bats are protected animals. You can't bite them back or disturb them in any way https://www.homegate.ch/c/fr/guide/h...es-plus-avises
