SUBJECT: Report of featuring living tigers in the night club Jungle
We are writing to you in regard to the announcement that today, January 11, 2008, there will be living tigers exposed at the opening of the night club Jungle (former Pasha) in Ulica Florijana Andraseca nearby Cibona Tower. A newspaper article announcing this was already forwarded to you last week.
We demand urgent intervention and prevention of animal abuse and violation of the law. Considering that this is not the first report against the same person and that the case of illegal breeding of tigers and their exposing on fairs and night clubs already is well known to all responsible inspections, media and citizens, it is definitely time to undertake some measures and sanctions in order to prevent further illegal activities and mocking of inspections and legislation by the perpetrator.
We are expecting a strict, conscious and urgent reaction appropriate to the authorized inspections which are under the duty to implement the legislation and protect animals. We would also ask you to inform us about your further activities regarding this issue.
President of Animal Friends
