Campaign sample letter>
Historically, Serbia 's war ended ten years ago. However evidence shows
that a war continues; only this time it is a war against Companion
Animals (Dogs and Cats). Thousands of animals have been inhumanely
rounded up, tortured, hanged, shot, beaten with sticks and rocks, burned
and poisoned in order to make Belgrade's streets pristine for your 2005
European Basketball championship, causing this sporting event to be
smeared with blood. Serbian officials have ignored the cries and pleas
of individuals in Serbia and worldwide to halt these atrocities and
implement better animal welfare laws and policies. Since this savage
massacre was caused by the preparations for your sporting event, I would
ask you and the sponsors of the 2005 FIBA Eurochampionships to denounce
these atrocities publicly. I would also ask that you urge the Serbian
government to cease the brutal round up of animals, legislate and
enforce better animal welfare laws and implement a sterilization (spay /
neuter) program for all companion animals living on the streets
throughout Serbia. We appreciate your help in this cause.
Brigitte Bardot's protest letter>
Basketball Federation, Sazonova Str.83, 11000 Belgrade, SERBIA
A few weeks prior to the European Basket Championship to be held in
Belgrade , I wish to draw your attention to the brutal practice of the
City authorities aimed at eliminating the stray animals before this
I suppose that you are aware of the death squadrons moving around the
city and searching for animals in order to poison a great many of them,
the animals that used to be fed and fondled by their numerous
protectors. Substances like detergents and others, which are used for
their killing, cause unbearable suffering and agony. Moreover, those
innocent beings have become objects of lower instincts of a part of the
population to which, as it seems, the brutal torturing of animals is a
source of sadistic satisfaction.
This is impermissible in view of the fact that Belgrade authorities
contacted my Foundation back in 2002 asking help in terms that the
Foundation provide funds necessary for sterilization, vaccination and
identification of hundreds of stray dogs, with a view to adopting a
humane and civilized method. Today, continuous massacres have made the
City of Belgrade a theatre of horror. Numerous dogs have not managed to
escape the poisoning, crippling and other forms of maltreatment.
Last April, I wrote to Mr. Boris Tadic, President of Serbia, asking him
to condemn such barbarous behaviour and to support the sterilization
campaign. Today, I am writing to you as it is not human that
organization of the European Championship requires a high toll in lives
of dogs. There is nothing that can justify such barbarous <cleansing>.
I am confident that the support of the Basketball Federation to the
sterilization campaign of dogs and the raising of its voice against the
senseless genocide will have an important echo in the public opinion and
with the authorities. Only by providing regular information and by
working constantly on developing the feeling for this issue can we stir
up sympathy and a change in the mentality and behaviour towards animals.
It is my deep belief that you can participate in, and contribute to such
evolution. I wholeheartedly hope to be able to count with your support
in this respect.
Hoping you will show respect for my opinion and act accordingly please
accept, Mr. President, my most sincere regards.
I also wish much success to your national team in the forthcoming
European Basketball Championship - "Euro2005".
MASSACRE OF STRAY ANIMALS IN BELGRADE IN THE NAME OF SPORTS
Between 16 and 25 September 2005 Belgrade will be hosting the European
Basketball Championship - <EUROBASKET 2005>.
Unfortunately, organization of such events is accompanied by the
sufferings, agony and massacre since the city authorities have decided
to intensify the extermination of the Capital's stray dogs. Thus,
hundreds of dogs are killed every week in the name of sports!
Like many other organizations worldwide, Mrs. Brigitte Bardot whose
Foundation financed in Belgrade in 2002 the campaign of Belgrade stray
dogs sterilization and vaccination, is joining the disclosure and
condemnation of such barbarous behaviour.
After writing to Serbia's President Tadic in April this year asking him
to exercise his authority so as to have such torturing of the man's best
friend brought to end, Madame Bardot is writing today to Mr. Miodrag
BABI�, President of the Basketball Federation of Serbia and Montenegro
and to Mr. Ivan MAIMIMA, his French colleague, to raise their voices
against such brutal <cleansing>, but also to advocate the campaigns of
sterilization as the only humane, efficient and sustainable mode for
preventing the reproduction of the stray dogs population.
In parallel with these actions, Brigitte Bardot Foundation will finance
starting from 26 September 2005 a campaign of disclosing such massacres,
by way of billboards in the streets of Belgrade, in an effort to make
the public opinion more sensitive to this specific issue. The campaign
will be carried out in cooperation with the local <Evropska inicijativa

Cabinet of President of Republic Serbia, g. Boris TADIC
Andricev Venac br. 1, 11 000 BEOGRAD, SERBIA and MONTENEGRO
Dear Mr. President,
It's with a bruised heart and a mourning soul that I appeal to you to
end the revolting massacre of Serbia 's stray animals. A number of
accounts, accompanied by photos illustrating the horror of the cruelties
inflicted on these innocent beings, have reached my Foundation. These
accounts denounced the atrocity of the eradication campaigns, led at the
request of the authorities.
Vilified by the media, these dogs and cats are becoming the scapegoats
of a part of your population, which seems to take sadistic pleasure in
savagely torturing them. Equally, death squadrons methodically patrol
each region of Belgrade in order to mass poison the few survivors of
this eradication. The detergents and other products that are used
generate intolerable agony and suffering. Furthermore, what about the
corpses of the dogs whose fur is carefully removed?
I know that your country and people are attempting to heal wounds, which
were inherited from a shameful and violent war. However, that was ten
years ago. Today is the time for the reconstruction of hearts and a long
The knowledge of atrocious acts committed regularly on stray animals
crosses frontiers. Your people have shown their bloody and criminal
behavior towards animals. Your capital is becoming, like Bucharest , a
window of horror. Neither the Belgrade marathon, nor the 2005 euro
basketball can justify this barbaric "cleaning". You have the power to
change all this and to restore Serbia's dignity. Push the elaboration of
an animal welfare bill, which favors sterilization and vaccination
campaigns for stray animals, similar to Greece and Turkey. Teach your
people that animals, even strays, have the right to our respect and
With hope that you hear my cry of distress, sincerely yours,
Brigitte Bardot, President
