Lord, you beasts? Pritravochnye station turned into a conveyor belt of death
MOSCOW, January 15 — RIA Novosti, Irina Halecky. The dog has never been involved in hunting? Some owners take their Pets on pritravochnye station — there are dozens of dogs as a training set against bound or trapped animal. Decoy animals usually caught in the woods or take it deducted from the circus.
Animal rights activists are against such stations for more than 10 years. Another scandal erupted in late December when the Federation Council rejected already approved by the state Duma a bill to ban contact pritravochnyh stations, citing the fact that the document can damage the hunting industry. Who needs such “points of learning” and can it be considered another type zhivoderstva — in the material RIA Novosti.
Zooprotective organization “Vita” first called for the fight against pritraukti. The President of the Center for animal rights protection “Vita” Irina Novozhilova says that it all started in the late 1990s: station bred as mushrooms after a rain on the basis of the dysfunctional hunting.
“The first complained vacationers in the health resort area of Moscow suburbs: im just tired of the daily noise from the animals. Then outraged the owners of dogs of hunting breeds, who did not want to bring their dogs for the beast — without it they were not given a diploma. Finally, hunters themselves stated that pritravochnye station does not have any legal bases that are not overseen by any one Agency and generally only hurt the dogs,” she says.
Novozhilov considers that the activities pritravochnyh stations is illegal and violates several articles of the several legislative acts. “Article 245 of the Criminal code, 137-I of the Civil code, two articles of the law “On animal world” — 26-I 40-I, the three articles of the law “On the hunt” — 2-I, 53-I, 49-I,” she enumerates.
Also, be sure Novozhilov, this kind of business is contrary to the 58th article of the Russian Constitution and the 36th article of the Forest code, violates the law “On veterinary medicine”. The Ministry of economic development did not really know where to put this sphere of economic activity. At the requests of community members, the Department replied that pritravki in the classifier relates to a 92-72 item “Entertainment and leisure”.
“It is unclear how to regulate it. The Ministry of agriculture denies, they say that hunting is not their competence, the Ministry of natural resources calls it a dog. The responses from the regions we see that the Agency there, too confused: send in the Federal Ministry of environment. And there we were told to deal on the ground,” says Novozhilov.
And he continues: “They just should be banned. Without pritravki lived before, in Siberia, these stations are almost there, the dogs there are trained in practice”.
Pritravochnye stations are now governed by the rules, written by three public organizations: the Russian Kynological Federation, Rosokhotrybolovsoyuz and the Russian Federation of hunting dog breeding.
“These rules already laid down violations and excessive cruelty. For example, there is a section of “stranglehold”. One rule of thumb: if the animal is killed, the dog owner is obliged to reimburse the cost. From wild boar-meat cleavers cut down the fangs, and this is a very painful procedure, after which there are two variants of developments: either the animal turns into a “plant” or becomes wildly aggressive,” explains the President of “Vita”.
