Justice for Mila- 4 Legs were Hacked Off, Serbia - The Petition Site
On April 13th, 2010, in Medakovic, a suburb of Belgrade, Serbia, Mila, a stray dog was found under a car with all her 4 limbs brutally chopped off. Although in terrible pain and seriously dehydrated, and after suffering from such cruel abuse in human hands, Mila showed absolutely no signs of aggression towards her rescuers. She remained very gentle, friendly, and loving towards all humans.
The vet said her only chance is prosthesis and that she sustained her mutilation for approximately 10 days. The vet also said that the cuts were very precise and that it could not have been done by only one person. Mila may have wandered around injured, looking for food and water for days and eventually sought shelter under a parked car. Mila shows a great will to live and will be at the vet clinic for a while until she finds a new home.
Serbia's well-known film director and chairman of the SOS Animals association Goran Paskaljevi said that he has been in contact with animal protection associations in Germany and France in order to determine where prosthetic paws for Mila may be manufactured, to then raise the money for this purpose.
Mayor Dragan Dilas confirmed that the city will also provide funds for the purchase of the prosthetic aids. He also said that his office will raise awareness to Belgrade's young and senior residents about the need to have compassion for animals. We applaud the Mayor and hope that he does indeed follow through.
After all the pain and torture Mila endured and her strong will to live, it is our hope that she is given the BEST possible treatment, prosthetic limbs, and rehabilitation to live her life comfortably.
