Kolinje - Croatian custom of slaughtering of animals on homesteads, results with hundreds of thousands of bloody yards and thousands of cases of Trichinellosis disease every year.
Animal Friends wants the Croatian Government to ban the slaughter of animals on homesteads and to change the disgraceful Animal Welfare Act.
We made a proposal for a new Animal Welfare Act in which, among other activities, the kolinje - cruel private parties of animal slaughters - is banned.
Petition is closed. According to the new Animal Protection Act, a pig may only be slaughtered if it is stunned before slaughter even for private domestic consumption. However, it is not regulated by law that a competent person does that, as was the Animal Friends' request.
