ok guys i need your help....
im in Bosnia right now and most people around the world know and its a fact that this countrys economy is really bad.
but i dont want to talk about economy but i want to talk about the newly opened Zoo in Banja Luka..
The thing is as much as this city is big and grat i think that city as a city cant aford the zoo.. Friend of mine that lives in banja luka told me that thay dont have a lot of animals but the whole cit is talking about the eagle that has been locked in the cage for couple of years, cage so small that he cant spread open his wings and streatch, i heard that he keeps banging his head agains the cage door and thats how he lives every day...and also let me not forget the story about the elephant ana the giraffe i guess thbe story goes like this, before the zoo opened they had ordered animals and before moving them into the zoo they were keept at the local farms where they were locked up all day, and the giraffe couldnt stand up ...\

well anyway when i heard all this i had scheduled a trip to that zoo on january5 and im comin back to usa jan. 9..
and i will record with a cam everything that goes on in that zoo..
now my guestion is ( there is no animals laws in this country) there are stray dogs everywhere, starving.....and what not) my question is what can i do with these videos in order to make a difference for these animals in the zoo? or even stray dogs..
everybody thinks im crazy cause im staying here only 2 weeks visiting my family and i took a stray off the streets.. i dont know whats gonna happend to the dog when i leave but i feel better cause she was fed and warm for 2 weeks out of her life....
anyway guys any ideas as far as my video that i;ll record , who do i show it to in usa that i know thats gonna help me make a difference and help animals in this country
i meam any ideas please guys.. ask around?? who?

ps does anybody know a site like pt thats is for eagles, now we all know some of the species of eagles are all ready endangared so there must be some rescue organization that is willing to go out of their way to help
thanks

You made my day when you said your brother is going to keep her. Tell him he put a smile on my face. You have a wonderful, big heart, gorica. Happy New Year, and I can't wait for you to get back but do what you can to help what you can over there. You changed the life of that dog. What did you name her. min

Hi Gorice,
You know well that Bosnia is not part of EU and therefore is not obliged to any laws except local ones. Stray dogs and cats were collected and destroyed by government services (shinteri) that I don’t know if functions after war having in mind economy of the country at present.
New animal protection law should be voted anytime now and there is a pressure on govenment by public to do that. New law should protect all animals in the country, wild and stray.
Best way will be to raise local campaign to help getting bigger cage for eagle. I believe you have no chances to free him as ZOO animals have special status.
Please contact animal rights organization in your town:

Društvo za zaštitu životinja NOA
Adresa:
Knjaza Miloša 57
78000 Banja Luka, BIH
Tel: + 387 (65) 933 617

I may be able to get you some contacts in government in Sarajevo, but chances for results are slim without the law in place.

dog left, she just dissapeared, maybe she followed somebody out of my house, cause wheni got home she was gone, i hope someone took her liek i did, cause i havent seen her on the streets, and the city is small i know i would have seen her, few people asked about her, so maybe they "stole" her from me.
my coincious is clear, she was fed, cleaned, and dewormed and also last but not least she was loved the whole time she spent in my home

That really saddens me gorica, I mean where could the dog gone to. I know you did your best, but I would be worried sick about her. I'm sure you native country is beautiful and everything but seeing dogs all over the place would make me so sad. I hope something changes with the animals. You did good in the short time that you have over there. min

If nothing works out for the eagle, give an amount to the daily feeder and ask him to open the cage (may be after the daily zoo closure). I know bribing is not at all a good thing, but this can be a different case.
